The historic Irma J Ranch is located 4 miles from Durango Mountain Resort and 22 miles from downtown Durango, Colorado. Situated at 8,700' elevation and surrounded by aspen/spruce trees with excellent views of the rugged Hermosa Cliffs, a newly constructed 3,700 square foot, 5 BR 4 Bath luxury home complements the 1880s barn and cabin, and several smaller buildings including a hot tub, sauna and outdoor (seasonal) shower house. Perfect for family get togethers during the summer or fall season, the house is available for stays at a lower winter rate. The cabin has been re-constructed since a 2006 fire, and the livestock barn has been remodeled into a saloon (for personal use only), sporting a 16' long 1920's-era bar and other amenities. Flat-screen televisions have been installed in the house, barn and cabin, controlled with an elan_g! system (barn, cabin and outdoor movie theatre functional during summer/fall season).

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Erin grew up in Durango, and Brad grew up on a farm/ranch in South Dakota. The IrmaJ is a special place they are happy to share.

Why the Owner Chose Durango, CO, USA:
Erin was born and raised in Durango, and her family has been in the area since the 1800s, so we have roots that run deep in this part of the country. We were married at the Irma J Ranch in 1986, thanks to the kindness of owners Johnny and Irma McNamarra. The connection: Erin had waited on Johnny Mac since she was 5 years old (1960s) in her father's Durango burger joint. When the place came up for sale in 2012, we purchased it with the intent of spending as much time there as possible, and building it into a place for families to gather and play. The construction of the home and 'resurrection' of all the original buildings was completed September 25, 2014, and our daughter was married there two days later. In early June 2016, construction of a 2,200 square foot pavilion was completed. This pavilion is ideally suited for a large family to gather and enjoy the beauty of the ranch and surrounding mountains.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
The Irma J Ranch is a unique blend of modern luxury in the 3,700 square foot ranch-style home, and historic beauty in the turn-of-the-century barn, cabin and other buildings. The IrmaJ Ranch is close to Durango Mountain Resort (4 miles), and one mile from the Needles country store and the Old Schoolhouse Restaurant. The barn has been converted to a three-story saloon for entertaining guests during the summer season. It has seasonal hot and cold running water, a 16' bar, foosball table and tons of charm. The cabin is quaint, with high quality finishing touches. A sauna house and seasonal shower house were built in 2014. A new hot tub was added June 2015. An outdoor movie theatre, projecting to a 10' wide screen on the outside barn wall, provides a novel form of entertainment in the summer/fall evening. The pavilion also has a HD projector, screen and state-of-the-art stereo/PA system. During the summer, on-site activities include horse shoes, kick-ball area and fire pit area. Off-site activities include road biking, mountain biking, hiking, four-wheeling, mountain climbing, train rides, golfing, and visits to area attractions like Silverton (26 miles), Durango (24 miles), and Mesa Verde (42 miles).
