Situated on the pinnacle lot in the very desirable Destination Ranch, made famous by the movie “City Slickers,” this is truly a legacy property. Located at the end of the road, with breathtaking views in every direction, including of iconic La Plata Mountain peaks, this is an extremely private location surrounded by wilderness and open space that is just 20 minutes from downtown Durango. The setting, Destination Ranch, is an exclusive, gated working cattle ranch. The pinnacle lot consists of 40 acres with a blend of three multiple acre pastures , plus varied, rolling terrain accented with an extensive system of tractor wide trails. There are so many wonderful places on this property to enjoy, including the front patio, fountain, pond and manicured lawn area, which are a sanctuary of relaxation. Other patios and decks surround the home and provide private spaces and large, open outside living areas that enjoy some of the most magnificent views. Inside, the home is spacious and very comfortable. The living, dining, and kitchen areas have an open living floorplan, with the living room being highlighted by a beamed, vaulted ceiling and unobstructed views of public lands and the La Plata Mountains. The chef’s kitchen is a dream with lots of storage and a large pantry. The master suite has it’s own, private balcony, a fireplace, and a gorgeous bathroom with a unique, stone wall shower with views to Missionary Ridge. The home’s lower level offers even more space for entertaining and relaxing with a recreation room that easily accommodates a pool table, TV area, and bar. There is also a spacious office and home gym. Highlighting the lower level is an incredible home theater with high tech features including an amazing sound system. Finishing off the lower level are two bedrooms, each with their own bath and outside space. This home features many high tech features, including four heat zones, an alarm system, and two outside cameras – all of which are internet accessible. Utility costs for this efficient home are amazingly low, with water at no charge, propane for the most part winter use only and electric costs averaging under $200/month (previous 12 months). This mountain home is one of a kind and must be seen to be fully appreciated.
