705 Animosa Drive

Durango CO, 81301


Newly renovated home on rare waterfront acreage in the midst of one of the most picturesque valleys in all of the West! If Durango, Colorado is one of your favorite places, then the stunning red cliffs of the Animas River Valley are surely forefront in your memories of this famous mountain town among its many awe-inspiring and breathtaking views. The Animas River and its glacial valley are notable for both the serene dramatic setting of meandering glassy waters framed by lush foliage and mountainous red cliffs, and in their capacity to transition your senses from the high-desert of the southwest to the cool high-Alpine and rugged peaks of the San Juan Mountains. For many, this river valley has come to symbolize the totality of feeling and spirit that make up life in the mountains. This rich bottomland setting is home to this multi-acre site and its well-conceived home renovation begun in 2013. The home backs Hermosa Creek with some of the finest views of the valley and its lush landscape with diverse and ever-changing foliage are omnipresent to the experience of this residence. The current owners have lovingly developed the existing home, its outbuildings, guest home, gardens and landscaping leaving only the facade of the main home to complete your vision of the ultimate valley estate. Plans and specifications for that final piece of the remodel as well as some of the finishing touches to the interior are readily available to the buyer. Though the setting is reminiscent of the valleys agrarian and ranching roots, this small enclave of estate homes enjoy rational HOA governance as well as a common swimming pond for your stocked fishing, paddling or other recreational enjoyment and plentiful access to area trails and amenities. Located a mere nine miles from downtown Durango, and just 16 miles from Purgatory Ski Resort, this residence is at the epicenter of Durango adventure. Mountain biking, hiking, skiing, backpacking, camping and countless other activities are in the immediate vicinity of your back door.
