1701 CR 250 Durango CO Real Estate
A lush 37 acre riverfront parcel awaits you with 1533 linear feet of the Animas River! A brand new, excellent producing well has just been installed to give you a head start on construction! Located just two miles north on CR 250 from Durango's city limits, you'll have the best of both worlds, enjoying Durango's vibrant in-town scene and restaurants while maintaining your privacy on this beautiful parcel. A very abundant 12 shares of Class A water from The Animas Valley Ditch & Water Company allows you to go any direction you wish with the property; ie. organic gardening, equestrian ranch, cattle, alpaca, as well as continuing the fertile hay production currently on the property. County Planning has confirmed that, subject to their approval and permits, the current zoning would also allow for a bed and breakfast, commercial nursery or gardens, day care and other commercial uses. For reference, 16 shares of water equals one full cubic foot per second of water, so the 12 Class A shares offer exceptional water rights. The hay fields are flood irrigated via the gated pipe throughout; and the current owner has taken two cuttings annually, roughly 2500 bales of top quality hay. Five metal horse sheds will remain, along with a tractor and various other ranch pieces of equipment; full list available. There's a new head gate on the ditch as well as a new measuring weir. Beautiful views all directions, including the Red Cliffs on both sides, Missionary Ridge and gorgeous views up the Animas Valley; with several excellent places to build a home should you desire. Lots of aspen, willow and maple trees as well as abundant wildlife including deer, elk, bear, eagles, ducks, songbirds and fish. A conservation easement protects the portion of the ranch down by the river; the perfect place for privacy, fishing, kayaking and rafting. Located less than five miles away from Historic Durango's Strater Hotel, this very special river front parcel with no restrictions is indeed a very rare find. Schedule a time to see it today!
