Description

Just twenty five minutes west of the iconic and secretly cosmopolitan town of Durango, Colorado, North Star Ranch is a hidden gem that spans 488+/- acres. This diverse terrain is amid the beautiful views that inspired famed western author Louis L'Amour. This year round, end of the roadhaven, is its very own private valley composed of lush meadows, rock cliffs, pine forests, and aspen groves. The picturesque landscape located in GMU 741 provides habitat for a variety of wildlife including elk, deer, bear, and turkeys. A few tree stands are established on the ranch. This GMU includes OTC rifle and archery elk tags. Adjacent BLM land offers outdoor adventures and additional hunting land right out your doorstep. When you arrive at North Star Ranch headquarters, new cedar fencing guides you alongside rich hay meadows and past a three bedroom caretaker's casita. Designed to meld seamlessly with the property's historic barns and outbuildings. A two bay heated equipment shop and additional sheds are more than adequate to meet the ranch's equipment needs and are easily accessible year round. Eighty plus acres of irrigated meadows meander up the valley leading to breathtaking views of the La Plata Mountains. As you continue along the driveway, a fork takes you directly to the original cedar clad ranch house shaded by a mature cottonwood tree. This quaint two story, 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home has a fenced yard, cozy porch, and charming dock overlooking the pond reflecting views of the ranch beyond. Youwill then arrive atthe ranch's showpiece, a stunning new timber frame horse barn, complete with a private two bedroom, two bath master suite, and a one bedroom, one bathroom guest suite below. Every detail of this extraordinary jewel box has been aesthetically designed, including, custom carved cabinetry, Italian tile, solid wood doors, and even a built-in daybed with hidden storage. Both the primary bedroom and living room offer unparalleled views of the valley and mountains through floor to ceiling doors. Step outside onto either porch for uninterrupted views of the sunrise or sunset. The barn itself is a testament to equine pursuits, housing six 12x12 stalls with mats thoughtfully designed with custom stall fronts and dividers. Dutch doors in each stall access the adjacent turnout. Additional interior work space includes a tack room and feed room, heated wash stall, and heated office. All Interior spaces are fully insulated and could be easily reconfigured for other uses. North Star Ranch has a number of ideal building sites, some of which you may spot as you follow the ranch road along the gently sloping meadows. These irrigated fields are generously watered, making the property a productive operating ranch, as well as a stunning location in which to live. Follow the drive into the trees and by the creek, where you may catch a glimpse of local wildlife, and will most certainly spot an ideal secluded camping spot and swimming hole or two. This same ranch road leads you through the canyon to the lush upper meadow revealing a haven for livestock and wildlife. Should you ever want to venture from the ranch, world class skiing, biking, and rafting await in nearby Durango, where you can also find shopping, dining, spas, as well as southwest Colorado's largest hospital. The charming local town of Mancos, just fifteen minutes from the ranch, boasts art galleries, a brewery, and a delightful coffeehouse. Mancos is your gateway to Four Corners. Mesa Verde National Park, Moab, Arches National Park, and Canyonlands National Park make a lovely day trip where you can explore stunning rock formations, expansive mesas, Native American rock art, the 700 year old cliff dwellings, and even dinosaur tracks! Whether you dream of creating a private oasis, living your equestrian dream, ranching, embarking on unforgettable recreational pursuits, or simply embracing the tranquility or southwestern Colorado. North Star Ranch is unforgettable.
