Located in the heart of the coveted Animas Valley, a short 10 minutes to downtown Durango, this 5-acre ranchette is turn-key and ready for it's new owner. Extensive structures include an iconic 2240 SF farmhouse, historic barn with 1-bedroom guest house, new barn with indoor riding arena, and plenty of parking. Rarely do properties like this come to market that are this dialed-in, meticulously maintained and thoughtfully planned out. The farmhouse blends old and new elements with many modern updates while maintaining the charm of a bygone era. On the main level is a living room with fireplace; powder room; dining room; kitchen with butcher block island, granite counters, ample pantry, 6-burner KitchenAid cooktop, wall oven and built-in microwave; separate office area with exterior door; utility room with sink; and a wonderful master suite with full bath and walk-in closet. Upstairs, are two guest rooms, a loft area, and 3/4 bathroom. The house has been repainted inside and out; features new light fixtures and carpeting; air-conditioning; decks with hot tub; coved ceilings and gorgeous hardwood floors. The grounds around the house are graced with mature trees including Rainer cherry, pear, peach and apricot; a seasonal pond; flower garden; and lawn area with partial automatic sprinklers. The current owner is a horse lover and the facilities will not disappoint. The perimeter is fenced and cross-fenced with solar hotwiring; 4 turn-outs; a 50x80 indoor riding arena; an outdoor 125x225 riding arena; a heated 36x48 barn with 7 stalls and tack room, water spigots inside and out; LED lighting; outdoor wash bay; two sets of cross ties. A few other features are priefert stalls, matted floors, with plenty of airflow, and natural light.

The indoor riding arena has a generous sand floor, 18' overhead doors, venting system, and is lighted for evening riding. Much of the irrigation system is new including PVC piping that delivers irrigation water to the pastures. Currently used as a wonderful equestrian facility, the barn would also make for an excellent space for the hobby collector or a mini-farm. The property enjoys natural gas, central water plus water rights from the Animas Consolidated ditch. Minutes to numerous trailheads into the San Juan National Forest.
