Outside you'll find lots of places to sit and enjoy the views on decks and covered porches, a nice one car garage or shop, and a great pole barn perfect for storing your RV or boat under cover. Sierra Verde Estates has a central water system through a natural spring for $70 a month, roads are maintained in the winter with a good number of families living here full time, only 30 minutes to Durango.

Well known for medal-winning fish, Lemon Reservoir is a magnet for fishing enthusiasts. Bring your fly rod and cast off from 10 miles of shoreline or bring a paddle board to coast through the waters, then go home to enjoy the uninhibited star gazing from your deck at night while falling to sleep to the sound of the creek below. Sierra Verde Estates makes for a great full-time residence or a second home getaway from the city.
