Prime river front property in the picturesque North Animas Valley. This is absolutely one of the finest home sites in our region. This is a historically significant site as it was a stop along the Durango/Silverton stage coach trail. See image from 1899. 15 acre parcel in Painter Ranch offering a park-like setting featuring 2 ponds, Animas river frontage for excellent fishing and the Conley ditch runs through it. Water, water, water! There is a large 50x90 foot metal building to store all the toys and has 3 horse stalls. Electricity, natural gas, phone and Animas Water is at the property in addition to a well. The property includes rare highly desirable senior water rights from the 19th century which equates to .4167 cfs from the Conley Ditch and .75 CFS from the Animas River for irrigation to keep the property lush. This is ideal for creating a pasture, enhancing the existing orchard, creating a vineyard or any other self sustaining farming. Great solar opportunities as well. Beautiful 360 degree mountain views. The property is very level with two 3 acre building envelopes. The sellers have also planted a small orchard. Large ponderosa pine, cottonwoods and gamble oak along with an open meadow and tons of water make this a one of a kind gem. Minutes to Town, Glacier Club, Dalton Ranch golf club and Purgatory ski area. This is an ideal setting on the valley floor at the base of the mountains.
