There is a lot to be said about the seller (a west point engineering graduate and veteran) who looked for years to find this property. and then, once acquired, designed it as the consummate riverfront ranch. This +/- 36 acres has no equal: encompassing both sides of the river without a homeowners association ccr’s. There is nothing like it on the market! The river and the waterpiedra river watershed is one of the cleanest watersheds in north america fed by mountain springs and snow shed of the weminuche wilderness (a half million acres of horseback or backpack only) located in the very heart of the san juan national forest. it’s a designated gold medal fisher with native cutthroats and brookies up high and on the tribs and trophy german browns and feisty rainbows round out the river. there’s a custom built fly fishing shed and a kids tree house on the river. there’s also a gazebo and stone fire pit for s’mores, cookouts and parties on the river with family and friends. the ranch has year-round senior-deeded irrigation rights 1. 25 cfs and has no sharing of ditch usage or regulated days. One of the most liberal water rights that exist! The ranch is completely plumbed and has irrigation headers throughout to every corner of the property. the irrigation complements the duel irrigation system (2 side rollers) that irrigates +/- 30 acres of timothy/alfalfa hay with up to 3 cuttings a year. Customers line up to purchase the hay every year produced on prr. Custom round pens, welded 5-rail pipe fence, paddocks and stalls, a tack barn and a surrey/wagon/carriage house & loft storage with dog runs. There is also a 200-yd. Rifle range and a 3-station clay bird launcher mounted on a trailer that can be side-by-side pulled to any corner of the ranch. This area of colorado has over 100 mule deer in the record book. boating/fishing/waterfowlone of the best kept secrets of the pagosa/durango area is the 30-mile long navajo lake, about 30 minutes south of prr. The lake hosts 2 boat launching ramps (one in colorado and one in new mexico) with hundreds of miles of canyons and shoreline in between. Power boating, windsurfing, waterskiing, bass fishing (both smallmouth and largemouth), northern pike and crappie are but a few of the species targeted. Just below the dam is 6 miles of the quality waters of the san juan river, said to be some of the best trophy trout fishing in the us. accessdurango, about 35 minutes away, is an incredible small mountain college town on the banks of the animas river (7 miles of public gold medal fly fishing). this small town of +/- 18,000 hosts over 200 restaurants, a new hospital with life flight, great air access and ft lewis college, a 4 year state college that has produced both men and women's ncaa champion soccer teams.
