Trails End Ranch, Durango Colorado
Less than 30 minutes from Durango’s 200 restaurants and commercial airport, nestled in the foothills below Vallecito Reservoir and the San Juan National Forest, lies the +/- 295 deeded acres of the Trails End Ranch. With over a dozen trail heads into the San Juan National Forest and the Weminuche Wilderness area just minutes away, one can be catching cutthroat trout limits, calling bull elk, sweet talking the Merriams or stalking a majestic mule deer buck. And, that evening, you can be dining in one of Durango’s many fine restaurants. An excellent shopping area and hospital are but minutes from the ranch and the nearby ski resorts of Wolf Creek Pass and Durango’s Purgatory are both noted for their abundant powder.
Farmhouse Style Home
Tucked back into your own canyon, approximately a half-mile from a county maintained road, the +/- 3036 sq. ft. farmhouse-style home awaits you. The warm and inviting custom home has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths with wrap around porches and decks. The views are beyond belief. There are 4 entrances into the home, a large great room, an open style kitchen/friendship bar with lots of room for guests and entertaining. The attached 3-car garage, with lots of storage, allows for weather-free vehicle storage. The home is complete with alarm system and irrigated landscaping around the perimeter of the home. In-floor radiant heat complements the native stone wood-burning fireplace. The lined pond, just off the deck, draws in the resident herd of rocky mountain elk, mule deer, turkeys and various small game. The design of the home allows for large viewing corridors, while being in a location that allows for complete privacy. A covered gazebo deck is waiting for your hot tub and a built-in 10-speaker sound system allows for your favorite college game day. In case of inclement weather, the home is wired for a backup generator (generator not included). A property well serves both home and barn.
Custom Crafted Barn/Shop
Across the natural grass meadows (approximately 100 yds.) and custom crafted framed with ponderosa pines, is the custom crafted 31 X 60 barn/shop. Three stalls, a tack room, and two other rooms allow for storage of your ATV’s, side-by-sides, and the included 4x4 Kubota Tractor (mid size) that runs well. There are 2 lofts, one which is serviced by a stairwell, allowing for storage of all the toys, tools, implements and hay storage you’ll need for planting your food plots and clearing your driveway. Also, a RV hook-up site, as well as a 90-200 ft. riding arena, are ready to go.
The property elevation - 6500-7000 ft.
A magnificent hidden canyon teems with a resident elk, mule deer and turkey population, and is totally private. An estimated 3+ miles of ATV, side-by-side, hiking trails or horse trails crisscross the property, allowing for animal watching, hunting, or just hiking around. There are no HOA’s to contend with and the property can be subdivided into smaller tracts should you desire. OTC elk tags compliment the unit and the property qualifies for an annual mule deer landowner buck drawing so you can fill your freezer. Ponderosa pine, gambel oak, pinion, and fir make up the native timber and game cover. Large natural grass meadows, with the valley being sub irrigated, make for excellent grazing and game food plots. The property has been subdivided into 8 parcels should you or a developer decide to use as an investment property. The property is enrolled in a timber management program and is considered agricultural status, allowing for low taxes.
Trails End Ranch is a large parcel, unencumbered by HOA’s and minutes from one of Colorado’s finest recreational towns. Properties of this size that allow for quality hunting and total privacy are very limited. For your turnkey personal home, or the family or corporate recreational retreat, one would be hard pressed to find anything comparable to Trails End Ranch in the Durango area.
