Florida River Valley


Type: Land

MLS#: 688088

Acres: 36.89

HUGE PRICE REDUCTION! Are you looking for the perfect riverfront property? Look no further. This 35+ acre Florida River site has more than 800 feet of waterfront, two high-and-dry building sites, two wells, beautiful “old growth” forest teeming with wildlife, and is framed by a 500-foot vermillion rock cliff that makes for a perfect day-hike. Look down from own cliff onto your beautiful river-valley property. And it is just 13 convenient miles along a paved road, CR 240, from the city limits of Durango, a delightful western town with shopping and cultural amenities, airport, four-year college and other city conveniences. Wake up each morning to the relaxing sound of the pristine rushing white water of the Florida – one of Colorado’s finest trout rivers. Fish from your front yard while you watch the sunrise reflect off the multi-colored rocks on your very own cliff, and onto the tops of 100-foot-high spruce trees. Quietly watch mule deer, beaver, fox, and other wildlife drink from the river, as trout jump and crash back into the river in search of their breakfast. This property was once part of a charitable “boy’s ranch,” which explains its pristine condition so near to Durango. Most areas along rivers were clear cut for cattle ranching, but this land has 100-year-old-plus spruce and other trees that reach majestically towards the Colorado sky. This property is a rare find anywhere, and is virtually unheard of finding such a property so close to downtown Durango on paved and well maintained county roads. It contains two separate lots, with separate wells, and ample water rights that include irrigation rights. It is a beautiful property that could be used for two separate houses, or a main house and guest house that could (at some later date) be separately deeded. You must see this property!
