53 ACRES IN DURANGO, COLORADO

This is a unique opportunity, unmatched in Durango/La Plata County or for that matter anywhere. The 53 acres is divided into two 26+ acre lots. They are part of the Rockridge Subdivision. What sets them apart from any other land offering is the following:

1. Location

This property is within the City limits of Durango with the availability of all City utilities including water and sewer service.

2. Location

Secluded but not isolated, less than a ten minute drive to the main street in Durango.

3. Location

Each parcel has a 12,000 sq. building envelope, meaning that one must build their home within the building envelope and no construction can take place outside the building envelope. This gives the owner approximately 51+/- acres of open space to surround one’s home (effectively each lot benefits from the open space on the adjoining lot). Think of the peace, serenity, privacy and wildlife habitat this provides!

4. Location

The property features spectacular views of the peaks of the La Plata Mountains, the twin summits of Perins Peaks AND a view down into the City of Durango.

5. Location

Durango, CO is located in the southwestern part of the state at the foot of the San Juan and La Plata mountains with a straight shot to the American Southwest Desert including such places a Mesa Verde National Park, the Four Corners and the Monument Valley. It boasts the amenities of a full service community and a distinct four season climate that is unmatched anywhere. Durango’s activities revolve primarily around outdoor adventure and recreation such as Purgatory and Wolf Creek ski areas, cross country skiing, cycling, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, backpacking, ice climbing and mountaineering.

5. Education

Durango is the home of Ft. Lewis College, a four year university that is part of the state’s education system. It also has Pueblo Community College, and an excellent library.

5. Health Care

Mercy Hospital. A leading independent health care ratings company has named Mercy Regional Medical Center among the top five percent in the nation for Outstanding Patient Experience for nine years in a row (2009/2010-2017).

5. Narrow Gauge Railroad

The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad (and museum) runs daily from Durango to Silverton, CO, an unforgettable journey that attracts riders from around the world.

5. Price

Purchasing these two lots for $550,000 and installing the utilities for about $350,000 you will have $850,000 invested. Divide that by two and you have a per lot cost of $425,000. A 50’ lot in Durango’s preferred neighborhoods will cost from $500,000 to $700,000. You can buy the parcel, install the utilities and then sell one lot off for $450,000 to $650,000. Does this not make sense?
