    Description

    Elk Park Ranch, one of the largest ranches available in La Plata county is nestled in the heart of the Florida River Valley, a stunning 15-minute drive east of Durango, surrounded by scenic forest and lush river grounds. The 973-acre ranch (7 separately deed parcels) has just under 1 mile of the Florida river frontage; features immaculately maintained residences (3) as well as supporting structures, perfectly manicured grounds, and ample water rights. No restrictions or conservation easements. The ultimate legacy property and retreat for family. Breathe deeply and the crisp, clean mountain air will will welcome you at 7000 feet. The owner along with many local and talented craftsmen, artfully designed an estate that not only captures the stunning setting but seamlessly integrates the mountain and valley as an intrinsic element to the property. Unlike many mountain ranches, Elk Park Ranch enjoys easy accessibility to countless recreation opportunities and city conveniences alike. The Florida River flows on the northern boundary of the ranch while stunning high mountain meadows adorn the south portion of the ranch. In addition, enjoy 8 productive ponds, some stocked with rainbow trout. Awe- inspiring mountain and valley views can be seen from every vantage point of the property. Truly, the scenery is astounding. The property is perfectly located in the heart of the Florida River Valley. The valley allows for a plethora of wildlife including ducks, geese and roving elk herds in the fall, winter and spring. The irrigated pastures and fields are fenced suitable for horses, cattle, goats or other livestock with a small corral. The property also enjoys good facilities for homegrown produce with a sizable fenced garden for summer vegetables. The pastures, landscaped areas, lawns and gardens are all irrigated. THE IMPROVEMENTS. The main residence boasts 7717 SF 4 BD, 7 BA is discretely set back from County Road 240 off of the less traveled County Road 247. Upon entering the stately and welcoming gated entrance, the residence is approached through the asphalt drive that meanders over the river and through the cottonwoods, aspens, and pines. The landscaping includes lush lawns, introduced and native trees and flower gardens that surround and complement the elegant, yet rustic improvements with a western flair. The front flagstone walkway is framed by boulders sourced locally. The gardens have been carefully landscaped to include a variety of flowering plants, evergreen and deciduous trees, a large pond and vistas of the surrounding valley. The house abounds in comfortable spaces for large and small gatherings alike - both inside and out. A total of 6 fireplaces can be found inside and one outside. There is a 8-car garage and workshop with bath, tack room and ample storage. Just off of the main residence is the guest cottage.
