519 County Road 216 Durango CO Real Estate

This is one of those rare properties that check all the boxes. Paved roads, expansive acreage, live water year round, natural springs, and sweeping views. Located in one of the most fertile valleys in Southwest Colorado this is the perfect property to spread out and enjoy, but have easy access to town without having road noise. CR 216 is a dead-end county road which is fully paved. The driveway is gravel but a straight shot which provides easy year round access.

The 8 ft front porch is also covered. You have mountain views in the back of the home, and pasture views on the front- very rare to find! After enjoying outside it's also great to have a nice drop zone. This home has a large mud room and laundry room. The grounds- there is approximately twenty acres of alfalfa/grass mix hay that produces three cuttings a year and is irrigated by side roll irrigation. There is also twenty acres of pasture with live water that is flood irrigated. Irrigation season runs from April to mid October, and this property has grandfather water rights which are extremely valuable.
