The large building envelope of this property offers flexibility for you to tailor your home's orientation to obtain the exact view and level of privacy that you desire. You can choose the SW ridge up against a massive rock outcropping flanked by large Ponderosas Pines and enjoy beautiful views to the North of the snow-capped La Plata Mountains and to the south down the valley. There are stands of oaks in a saddle where you can enjoy a more tucked away and private feel. Wonderful 35 acre tract located in the Elk Stream Ranch which is a gated community located about 25 minutes from downtown Durango and about 10 minutes from Mancos, Colorado. Elk Stream Ranch is a long valley running north to south in this property is located on the northern end and on the eastern side of the valley. A good portion of the ranch is bordered by public lands which are open for hunting, horseback riding, hiking and of course cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the wintertime. Between Elk Springs Ranch and Elk Stream Ranch there are approximately 50 parcels, all of which are at least 35 acres in size. There are a number of beautiful homes and many people have horses so that they can enjoy the very country and rural setting. As you go further south down the ranch the Valley walls get taller and steeper and you see beautiful rock formations and great opportunities for some serious hiking. The 35 acre parcel that we have for sale is before the steep part of the Valley so I would describe this tract as quite rolling. There is a nice grassy area on this parcel that would be suitable for grazing a horse and as you can see by one of the pictures, the Elk like this property quite well, also. Deer, bear and tons of wild turkey would also be your "animal" neighbors. There are several very good spots to build; some provide extra privacy while others provide better views of the snowcapped La Plata Mountains. This property is served by a central water system and the water tap is included in the purchase price.
