(Update: New pictures of the river show the summer water levels now that the reservoir upstream has been opened to release snow melt.)
Sitting at an elevation of nearly 7400’ and nestled between over 600’ of Florida River frontage and the foot of a mountain, this property is Colorado at its finest. This amazing, 3.65-acre property enjoys supreme privacy in the heart of the valley surrounded by two large acreage ranches and is just 8 miles to Main Street in Durango.
You will arrive at the property on all paved roads and pass over a private bridge to get to the home. The home is set up as two separate, self-contained living areas totaling 3971 sf. (separated by a garage, no common walls). Each side has its own kitchen, living room, bedrooms, baths, fireplace and laundry. You can book one side, or, for larger groups or ultimate privacy you can reserve both sides.
For the purposes of this web listing, we are required to list each one separately. This listing is for the "Trout House"...a single story side (3 bedroom). The listing for the 2 bedroom side (the "Bear House") is VRBO listing #1267389. A listing for the whole house (5 bedroom option) will be added soon.
This 3 bedroom listing features single level living with a large master suite (with steam shower and jetted tub), 2 additional guest rooms and a 2nd full bath. The Trout House has a wood burning fireplace and offers a full size washer and dryer. There is approximately 2,000 sf so everyone can spread out. The property is in the process of being remodeled/updated to include an all new kitchen and modifications to most all of the rooms. (As rooms become finished we will update pictures on this site.) Relax on one of two porches that overlook the river at the end of the day or with your morning coffee.
NOTE: The other side (2 bedroom option) features an open kitchen, dining and family room layout with 2 guest bedrooms on the second floor. This side can easily accommodate 7 guests (master has a king bed, bedroom 2 has three single beds and there is a pullout sofa). There is a bath on each of the floors and laundry on the first floor. There is a river rock fireplace and the kitchen is fully equipped. There is approximately 2,000 sf so plenty of room to spread out. You can access this listing under the same heading as this one, but it is called "2 bedroom option". VRBO #1267389.
Crib and high chair are available upon request for either listing.
Whichever option you choose (or both for ultimate privacy) this is a perfect location to enjoy afternoons relaxing on the multiple decks, casting dries on the roaring river, enjoying the wildlife or playing on the lush lawns under the soaring trees. The park-like property comes complete with a picnic table, benches, hammock, lawn games and grills.
