This 4.94-acre lot sits in an exclusive gated community. It offers a large building envelope that captures dramatic views of Engineer Mountain, Castle Rock, Hermosa Cliffs, and borders a private 5+ acre trout-filled lake for the fishing enthusiast. The Two Dogs community amenities include a gated stone entrance, paved roads, underground utilities, central water/sewer, design covenants to protect the quality of homes in the community, and building envelopes selected to ensure unobstructed views while maintaining privacy. This incredible homesite enjoys direct access to the private lake on its western boundary and borders the San Juan National Forest on its northern property line. The acreage is open and forested with healthy stands of large ponderosa pine, aspen, juniper, and gambel oak. This location is perfect for an outdoor enthusiast; you will love the easy access to national forest lands for skiing, hiking, biking, snowshoeing, fishing, four-wheeling, and snowmobiling. Endless recreational opportunities, privacy, convenience, and big views create the perfect combination for an incredible homesite location. This is Colorado living at its best, while only 2-miles from skiing at Purgatory Resort, 6-miles from golfing/tennis at Glacier Club, and 26-miles from downtown Durango.
