Elk Springs Ranch is one of those special places in the world, known only to a few, that once you experience the area your heart will be captured forever. Here you will find this magnificent home on 41 acres, built in the quintessential Colorado Mountain style, and perched between the La Plata Mountains and the southwest deserts with their historical and natural wonders on full display. This private canyon setting is a haven for wildlife and a wonderful place to live closer to nature in postcard beauty, while still having easy access to all of lifes essentials - high speed internet, great schools, arts & culture, fine dining, and countless outdoor pursuits. When you enter this architecturally designed home you will find a comfortable, elegant layout that welcomes the outside in with towering windows to capture the ever changing views of the mountains and ample spaces for entertaining, as well as for work, study, hobbies, and quiet contemplation. Two main-floor bedrooms occupy opposite sides of the home. The larger primary bedroom has a luxury en suite bathroom with separate shower and soaking tub, and tremendous views of East Canyon and Menefee Ridge. The kitchen features a large central island and a gorgeous kitchen sink view, granite counters, lots of natural light and plenty of storage. There is a sweet covered porch off of the kitchen as well. Across from the island the pellet stove adds warmth to the sitting area. Upstairs, youll find a comfortable loft area that would make a perfect office or gathering room with striking canyon views from the floor to ceiling windows. The floor to ceiling rock fireplace is the centerpiece of the spacious living room, which features a wrap-around deck directly facing the mountains, shaded by tall ponderosa pines. The property itself is one of the prime view lots in the subdivision, which features gated access from Highway 160 and year-round maintained roads. On this diverse 41 acre parcel, there are open meadows, rock outcroppings, and a mix of pinon, juniper, ponderosa and aspen trees, as well as oak brush that puts on an incredible display of color in the fall. The home has an attached 3-car garage, and the outbuildings include a detached oversized 1-car garage & greenhouse, and a massive RV storage building measuring 52' x 41 with three 14 tall overhead bay doors. The home is just 23 miles from Durango and only 7 miles from Mancos, which was named one of Americas Best Small Towns by Smithsonian Magazine.
