Durango Colorado Ranches

By September 20, 2011January 30th, 2014Buying Right

In the beautiful southwestern Colorado Rockies you will find Durango, a historical Colorado town with breathtaking mountain surroundings. Here everything from older historic buildings to new custom luxury homes come together to create one of Colorado’s most loved home markets. Out of all the properties in this vibrant real estate market, ranches provide an ideal combination of unlimited recreational opportunities and productive ranching inside a thriving wilderness paradise.

It doesn’t matter if you want to keep horses, produce hay or simply maintain a conservation easement where you can fish for a gold medal trout against a backdrop of the snow-capped La Plata Mountains, Durango Colorado ranches come in many shapes, sizes and forms with something for everyone’s plans and dreams.

You can find ranchette properties from 3 to 35 acres available in organized subdivisions such as Shenandoah, Rafter J, Kings Mountain and Two Dogs. Some of these wonderful smaller ranches offer paved roads, underground utilities, central water and common area grounds. This is the best of both worlds giving you privacy and seclusion, yet amenities you are used to coming from larger cities.

Larger ranches and vacant land properties ranging from 35 to 100+ acres are located to the North and West of Durango. These are ideal for buyers looking for privacy and seclusion with expansive Animas Valley and Needles Mountain views. There is easy access to hundreds of thousands of acres of the San Juan National Forest, Division of Wildlife Lands and BLM Lands. Some of these ranches include Celadon, Red Tail Mountain Ranch, Destination Ranch (where the movie “City Slickers” was filmed), Windom Ranch, Elk Horn Ranch and the Cliffs of Durango.

Some investors purchase Durango Colorado real estate with a view to develop into a family retreat with multiple homes for each generation – a place to return to for more wonderful experiences and memories, year after year. Because the region has a very varied landscape there is often room for a charming variety of building sites, each with different attributes. This means some of your family can enjoy mountain views while others have river canyon panoramas on their doorstep.
