Gorgeous 35-acre lot in a premier, gated Durango Ridge Ranch of 35-acre parcels on 1200+ acres boasting privacy and views of the La Plata mountains, Twin Buttes, and Perins Peak. Probably the most private lots on the ranch, with the domestic water well already drilled. The topography is amazing with hundreds of mature Ponderosa pines, a seasonal creek, and great views. The parcel provides privacy and beauty for your new home site, and the large, leveled building envelope encompasses most of the top of the lot, allowing for the best views. The minimum square footage for a house is 1500 SF. The subdivision allows up to 7 large farm animals (horses), and the homeowner can build a barn as well. If you are a sportsman, or outdoor enthusiast, you will enjoy the private access for hiking, hunting, and horseback riding into the 13,000 acres of Perins Peak State Wildlife Area. Additional recreational opportunities are within 10 minutes at Hesperus Ski Hill and enjoy unlimited winter/summer activities in nearby La Plata Canyon. The property has abundant wildlife habitat, and commonly seen are migrating elk, deer, coyote, red tail hawks, eagles, and many other small animals and sporting birds. All roads are well maintained, dust free, and Durango Ridge Ranch has been given the Firewise Community Award. There are no telephone poles to spoil the beautiful views because all phone and electric lines are underground. Direct access off highway 160 allows for a drive of about 10 minutes to downtown Durango. Taxes are $7/year while land is undeveloped because of an agricultural tax break. This lot provides an opportunity for the next owner to create a wonderful home with a great mix of Ponderosa pine trees, privacy and views.
