Property description

(NOTE: Please check your Junk Mail ebox for inquiry responses)

Most of our guests spend their time right here, just reading, visiting, hiking and fishing. This houses’ open concept living area is perfect for visiting with friends and family! It is also a perfect place to use as a home base after spending the days and nights seeing the sights of Southwest Colorado. Within a 5 minute walk through our meadow, down to the river, will land you at the trophy trout section of the Animas River where secluded fly fishing is abundant. Our 2200 square foot single level house has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3 fireplaces inside and an open cozy floor plan perfect for gatherings. There is an outdoor kitchen area with Barbeque, fireplace and furnished perfectly for outdoor relaxation and fun. The property is on 3 acres, with 2 ponds surrounded by green grass, several gardens, and trees. The wildlife (deer, wild turkeys, eagles, geese),.are part of our daily views.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: My wife and I loved the location of this piece of property and the abundant water rights that comes with it. However when we first purchased the home, it and the land needed allot of work. We spent 6 years renovating it to the relaxing house it is today. We are very proud of the changes we have made, especially the landscaping and timber frame accents throughout the house. We are both retired and enjoy woodworking, renovating homes and the outdoors – especially gardening and flyfishing.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We love Southwest Colorado but particularly this property, because of the proximity to the river and the location here in the South Animas River Valley. We want others to experience the peace and contentment that comes with this house and hope to share it with others that will appreciate it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is located less than 15 minutes south of Durango, so it is close enough to enjoy all that the town offers. As well the access to ski areas (Alpine and Nordic) hiking and biking are all less than an hour away. The wildlife (deer, wild turkeys, eagles, geese),.are part of our daily views. Although southwest Colorado s known for its dry climate and vegetation, this house is unique in that it has lush vegetation, giving it a cool and peaceful atmosphere in the summer. Being located in the South Animas River Valley gives us “banana belt” weather during the winter, meaning we have slightly warmer temperatures than the homes on the mesas, prairies and in the forested areas.
