If Durango, Colorado is one of your favorite places, then the stunning Animas River Valley framed by its red cliffs is surely forefront in your memories of this famous mountain town among its many awe-inspiring and breathtaking views. The Animas River and its glacial valley are notable for both the serene dramatic setting of meandering glassy waters framed by lush foliage and mountainous red cliffs, and in their capacity to transition your senses from the high-desert of the southwest to the cool high-alpine and rugged peaks of the San Juan Mountains. For many, this river valley has come to symbolize the totality of feeling and spirit that make up life in the mountains. These very limited and awe inspiring parcels youre viewing here are just beyond the boundary of the city of Durango. Due to the topography of this incredible setting, they feel a world-away with no line of site between the four residences for complete privacy, though located within walkable and rideable distance to Durangos most sought after in-town features and amenities. Animas Meanders Reserve (AMR) offers private and gated access from the north end of Durango for four legacy homesites, two of which have already been purchased. In addition to rare and highly sought after Animas River frontage on each site, as well as ample land for other uses (one area is currently being used as an organic farm), each site has access by right to the approximate 100 acre Reserve, rich bottom land abundant in wildlife, river bends, beaches, oxbow ponds, trails and some of the most artistically inspiring scenery anywhere. Kayak, swim, raft, canoe or paddle-board from your own beach. Fish the abundant waters of the Animas, or partake in unparalleled wildlife and bird watching in this rich riparian corridor. Mountain bike the trails that wind around the Reserve, or hike along the river and its diverse ecosystem replete with old-growth cottonwoods, herons, nesting eagles, elk, deer and too many other natural neighbors to catalog here. The elevated building sites have been designed and graded to offer spectacular views of the Animas Valley, West Needles Mountains, Missionary Ridge, Animas Mountain, Perins Peak and more. Excellent roads already constructed to the site, utilities are already to entry of the development, and each site has room for an additional guest home or other structure. Other community improvements include: domestic well, surface water irrigation system with 10HP submersible electric pump, 2 line to gated pipe12 dee
