Property Description

La Plata Canyon Ranch, located at the base of the majestic La Plata mountains on the La Plata River, is a stunning 15-minute drive west of historic downtown Durango. The property consists of 262 acres (4- separately deeded parcels), with roughly 3000 ft of the La Plata River. There are several improvements on this property including the main residence built in 2003 and designed by acclaimed architect, Jon Pomeroy. The home consists of 7062 SF, 4 bedroom, 5 bath, & a 3-car garage. There is a 3312 SF equipment barn/shop and 4-stall horse barn. The ranch has multiple ponds, an impressive stretch of river corridor, and extensive landscaping coupled with the scenic forest and lush river grounds. The improved fishery (ponds & river) provides for great experiences & excellent hunting can be found on the ranch as well as direct access to hundreds of thousands of acres of San Juan National Forest. Overlooking the La Plata river & dramatic vistas of the surrounding peaks & gentle vistas, the design combines cedar logs, glass, rock, steel, & sandstone. Upon arrival at the strategically placed gated entry, the views will immediately grab your attention. The paved drive leads you to the home’s courtyard with awe-inspiring landscaping featuring granite boulders (reclaimed from the La Plata County fairgrounds), berms planted with native grasses, trees, & shrubbery. The attention to detail is paramount before ever stepping foot into the residence. Unlike, many mountain ranches, La Plata Canyon Ranch enjoys complete paved access & is easily accessibility to countless recreation opportunities & city conveniences alike. Skiing can be found within minutes from the ranch at the quaint Hesperus Ski Area & fine dining at the Kennebec Café. The varying terrain allows for a plethora of wildlife including roving elk herds, deer, hawks & bald eagles. The property is fenced and cross-fenced, suitable for horses, cattle, goats or other livestock. Elevation 8,400 feet. Taxes are exceptional low due to ag-status. THE HOUSE. The residence is discretely set back off of County Road 124. Upon entering the stately & welcoming gated entrance, the residence is approached through the paved drive that meanders through the natural terrain of the high mountains and lined with introduced foliage. Inside, the interior was designed to perfectly complement its setting. A stately steel & glass front door set the stage for this unique masterpiece. Off of the entry, the home media room featuring built-in shelving and fireplace. The north wing of the home is accessed by a gallery leading to the primary suite & two guest suites. The gallery is enhanced with two atriums. Guest suite #3 is located on the second floor & is reminiscent of a tree house. All bedrooms are en suite & have separate thermostats to keep guests comfortable. The primary suite is on the far north side of the house complete with water feature, ample closet/dressing room, large soaking tub, steam shower, & double vanity. The laundry room is conveniently located on this side of the house. Flagstone floors are met with walls of glass & exposed log beams. Solid cherry doors can be found throughout the home, 20’ ceilings & tinted glass throughout eliminating the need for window coverings. The formal living room is circular showcasing the incredible surroundings. The stonework juxtaposition the walls of glass & mammoth fireplace. This is the centerpiece of the home with the dining & kitchen flanked to the south by a breezeway with access to the observation deck. The kitchen is equipped with Sub Zero refrigerator, Viking six-burner range with griddle & double ovens.
