Storyland Ranch

Colorado, La Plata County, Durango – MLS 730578

The exquisite “Storyland Ranch” is a 22.47 acre parcel with access to the San Juan National Forest and is located in the desirable North Animas Valley in Durango, CO. This unique ranch is like the scene of a fairy tale with a diverse amount of terrain, private clusters of scrub oak forest, horse pasture, rock outcroppings, fields of wild flowers, secluded flat building site with outlooks, tall pines encircling a fire pit and a 100’ cliff to take in the beautiful Animas Valley views.

Drive by a custom rock walled pond on the way to the building site where you can look towards the Red Cliffs of Missionary Ridge and see the Animas River Valley. Nearby you can hear and see the Durango-Silverton train approaching in the distance.

The lower section of the property has its own gate to a south meadow with a nearby tunnel under Hwy 550 accessing 150,000+ acres of National Forest Service Land via the Pinkerton-Flagstaff trail. The property conveys with mineral rights and has no HOA. All infrastructure – driveway, gates, central water, power, natural gas, conduit for future cable/phone and a 4 bdrm engineered septic system are in place to start your custom home project.

This property has coveted agricultural status – only $24 taxes per year! It has been used in the past as a horse outfitting location. This unbeatable ranch is just 14 miles from downtown Durango and 13 miles from Purgatory Ski Resort. So much to do from this amazing location. Enjoy a dip or fishing in the Animas River at Baker’s Bridge, a road bike ride along CR 250, golfing at nearby Glacier Club, skiing at Purgatory, or hiking, mountain biking or horseback riding on the Pinkerton-Flagstaff trail. End your day swapping stories around the campfire or enjoy stargazing at the top of your very own cliff.
