About this property

Among the finest examples of mountain luxury lifestyle, with over 197-gently-rolling acres, Ute Junction Ranch is exceptionally private, enabling unobstructed views of the La Plata Mountains. The ranch borders over 1,500 acres of Ute Mountain Tribe lands, protecting the quiet and intimate setting, including multiple ponds, mixed terrain, lush meadows, tall pines, and oak brush. Wildlife across the ranch consists of elk, mule deer, duck, geese, and wild turkey. Although not currently zoned commercial, the ranch could be an exceptional opportunity for a corporate retreat, wedding/special events venue, or Bed & Breakfast. The opportunities are endless with private buildings, expansive land, and irrigation water. For an acceptable offer, the generous seller is including a Durango Lifestyle Package including a Platinum Glacier Club membership valued at $50,000 and 1 year of paid club dues! In addition, 4 Power Pass ski passes to Purgatory Resort and 1-year annual membership for 4 at Durango Hot Springs. What a great way for the new owners to enjoy some of the area’s finer amenities! The gated entry leads through tall pines to a stunning French chateau. Upon arrival, the cobbled courtyard - stones reclaimed from Chicago's famous State and McKinzie Streets - welcomes guests and leads to the grand entry of the 16,000-square-foot beautiful primary residence, suited to host any occasion.
