3456 County Road 124, Hesperus, Colorado 81326
Located minutes from downtown Durango lies a 175-acre, fully functional, scenic ranch with access to excellent hunting, fishing, horseback riding, snowmobiling, entertaining, and more, with significant room for expansion and the most prominent Solar Panel Project in the history of Colorado per square footage. “The property is split by the La Plata River that is serviced by a magnificent bridge that connects the property,” confirms listing broker Eric Roark of The Wells Group of Durango, Inc. “Combining the 175 acres property with the bordering National Forest makes the estate feel much larger than its deeded acreage--that includes five Colorado mountain peaks.”
Quiet country living with close conveniences, the ranch comprises six structures: the main house, a caretaker house, a four-stall barn, a pole barn, and an outdoor pavilion. Luxury details can be found throughout the four-level 18,000 square foot main house that can be accessed via a Pecan Wood finished elevator. Multiple patios and balconies allow one to enjoy the picturesque grounds from every angle.
“On the main floor, there is an open concept three-room area,” describes Roark. “First, a massive great room with a castle-designed fireplace and 22 ft Aspen Wood ceilings with the focal point of the majestic mountains with views through panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows. Next, a formal dining room to host family holiday meals and stately dinners that opens to a dine-in, state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen with butler’s pantry with unlimited storage.”
Also, on this level, you will find a two-story primary ensuite with all the accouterments of a five-star hotel, a second-story bonus room, a fitness center with lap-resistant pool, an executive office, and more. The heated three-car garage has an attached greenhouse, mud-room entry with lockers, and a half bath.
The entertainment spaces continue to the upper and lower level floors. On the lower level is a 12-seat home theater decorated as a luxurious opera house and a soundproof music studio. A huge game room with a wet bar and a Zen room surround three ensuite guest bedrooms on the upper levels.
On the grounds, you will find a 2,550 square foot, three bedroom, two bathroom caretaker house with a two car garage. The 4,356 square foot four stall barn with washing basin and 3,650 square foot pole barn with utility room and covered outdoor horse pen are perfect for horse boarding, lessons, breeding, and training. For significant events, the outdoor pavilion is ideal with a full-service kitchen and firepit, dual commercial-style restrooms, RV pads, and hookups.
Roark adds, “This Property includes one of the largest Solar Panel Projects for Utilities in the history of Colorado for SF residence, with utility bills averaging $66.00 a month! An 85 Kilowatt Propane Generator backs up power. There is room for expansion with utility hookups to create more potential trophy home sites. This Property is located in an incredible setting for a multitude of activities and is only 15 Minutes to shopping, dining, and nightlife and 30 minutes to Jet Service.
3456 County Road 124, Hesperus, Colorado 81326, is available for $29,500,000.
