Fabulous views of the Red Cliffs will be yours as you sit out on your back porch, looking over the lush 11 acre riverside park. The Cove, just north of Dalton Ranch in Durango, is an exquisite small subdivision of only 42 lots, with private Animas River access. In fact, the open space enjoyed by the homeowners here includes 11 acres of a lush park with ponds on one side of the river and 24 acres on the other side of the river, ensuring no future building will happen across the water. On this lot, you can build a single level home of 2640 sq ft, inclusive of garage; or add a second floor and go up to 3000 sf with a variance. Minimum house size is 1600 square feet. Giant cottonwoods, up to 150' tall, grace the subdivision and you'll love having the water rights which come with the annual HOA dues of only $500, allowing for lush lawns, gardening, and waterscaping around your home. The Cove is situated far enough off of Hwy 550 to preclude any road noise. PJ's Gourmet Market, True Value Hardware and the Dalton Restaurant, golf, tennis, swim and workout facilities are right down the street. Located just a ten minute drive north from town, and 15 minutes on up takes you to world class skiing at Purgatory. The ideal area for the active, outdoor enthusiast; you can walk over to the river for fishing, paddle boarding and other river sports! This lot, #19, backs directly to the lovely 11 acre park (maintained by the HOA) and pond just a few steps into the park. Central gas, water and electric to each lot line.
