This recreational ranch in La Plata County has deeded irrigation rights, mile of river front along both sides of the Animas River, and its own acre island! Located only 20 minutes south of Durango, CO, this ranch has excellent year round access thanks to paved county road frontage. Deeded water rights date back to the 1800's and total over 9 CFS. They consist of 176 shares of Class A water from Citizens Animas Irrigation Company (equivalent to 2.2 CFS), and another 7 CFS of water from the multiple springs on the east side of the river. Wildlife is abundant consisting of wintering elk, monster mule deer, tons of turkey, some of the best waterfowl hunting in Durango, and amazing fly fishing for the numerous 20 brown trout that have been caught along this stretch of the Animas River. A modern pipe corral system is in place for working livestock and includes year round spring fed water. Three separate pastures allow for rotational grazing of livestock. No covenants, no HOA, and no conservation easement on this ranch. Low ag taxes of only $1,555.28 a year. The ranch offers tons of privacy due to bordering 550+ acres of Southern Ute Indian Tribal land to the north and 100+ acres of SUIT land to the South. Verizon 4G cell phone service is readily available. There are numerous excellent building sites overlooking the Animas River and the different mountain ranges to the north. Large acreage ranches in the Animas drainage this close to Durango are almost nonexistent. Bring your legacy buyer today!
