This is a rare opportunity where your buyer can enjoy owning a 1/4 mile of the Animas River with ownership on both sides of the river. This property is complete with irrigation water and irrigation systems, developed pastures (approximately 17 acres), apple orchards, mature cottonwood trees and the entire eastern and western boundaries adjoin Southern Ute Tribal Lands. There is a total of four homes on this property including a small studio unit, the original 3 bedroom home with an attached 1 bedroom apartment, a 3 bedroom home and a 4 bedroom home down by the river, all of which have been recently renovated or recently built. This property is ideal for a group that wants to use the entire parcel - be it a family wanting to be in one location (a family retreat/compound), a vacation rental operation, or bed and breakfast. The Animas River has excellent trout fishing in this location and there is an easy access "put in" and/or “take out” for rafts or drift boats. The property is currently provided free natural gas based on a surface use agreement in place. There are three permitted water wells on the property, and there is another approved location to build one additional home on the northern parcel. Part of the acreage is located west of Highway 550 and could be subdivided into two homesites. The current ownership structure is two parcels and the Seller may consider offers for one or the other parcel. Additional buildings include a metal building workshop with disconnect generators (3) and ample space for storage or workshop space, and an old barn which is a good size and great for storage or could be converted for livestock.
