Coon Creek Canyon

Colorado, La Plata County, Durango – MLS 735799

First time offering of one of the most special and historic properties in the Animas River Valley. Bordered by National Forest with exceptional valley views north and south, including uninterrupted views of Engineer and the Needles Mountains. This 160 acre property is divided into 4 parcels of 40 acres each in a private subdivision known as Coon Creek Canyon Conservancy. The property is exquisite with lush open meadows, ponds, springs and woodlands of Spruce, Aspen, and Ponderosa Pine. It is a virtual private wilderness paradise, yet very accessible.

Build your home or retreat site at the base of the property where utilities are readily available and where there are exceptional views of the valley below. And, build an off-grid cabin in the upper meadows surrounded by quaking Aspens and running streams. There are amazing recreational opportunities on the property and within the bordering National Forest, and it is unlikely that you will find better nature viewing or hunting anywhere in the area.

The potential for significant tax benefits from placing a conservation easement on one or more of the parcels provides an opportunity to own one of the most unique and gorgeous properties in the region at an unheard of value. The opportunities are unlimited and the proximity to historic downtown Durango makes its amenities only about 20 minutes away. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

Offered at $3,189,000
