Property Description

La Plata Mountain Ranch is properly named, nested on Cherry Creek, and sitting under the skyline of the extraordinary La Plata Mountain Range. The ranch is said to be the background to many Louis Lamour western novels, and when traveling through the ranch’s varied terrain from the deep black timber ridges, to the cool shadowed valley floors and oak covered bluffs, you feel like you are walking through history if you’ve enjoyed these western novels. La Plata Mountain Ranch is one of the largest deeded ranches in southwest Colorado’s most desired county’s, La Plata County. The Ranch is comprised of 3,721± acres, 3,233± deeded acres and 488± acres of state leased lands, and borders over 760± acres of limited access BLM lands. The La Plata Mountain Ranch is fortunate to have 1.5± miles of live water on Cherry Creek, water rights for irrigation, recreation, and ease of access year-round on both paved and county-maintained roads, with excellent road access to a great majority of the ranch. Improvements on the ranch include a well built, comfortable 2,220± square foot 3-bedroom, 3-bath home with a 6-car garage, and a 2,069± square foot fully insulated shop. For the equestrian enthusiast, the ranch has a 6-stall barn with roping arena, great horse pasture, and live water. The upper ranch has a conveniently located historic and useful hunting cabin, allowing you to cover much of the ranch during hunting season without traveling through prime habitat at the break of dawn. The ranch is home to exceptional big game with a trifecta of wildlife habitat, terrain, water, and feed, providing a sanctuary for some of this region’s best big game. The varied terrain of heavy timber canyons, high grassland mesas, open hay meadows, and oak covered plateaus, coupled with historic migration routes make this ranch home to some of the top regional Elk, Mule Deer herds, Turkey, Black Bears, and Mountain Lions. With the Mesa Verde National Park and Menefee Mountain Wilderness Study Area to the west of the La Plata Mountain Ranch, the vast La Plata Mountain range of 14,000 ft peaks and the San Juan National Forest to the north, and Purgatory Resort or Hesperus Ski Area both nearby, you will always have extraordinary places to explore. With over 300 days of annual sunshine, the angler will find the perfect paradise of Animas River Valley. The recreational opportunities in this area are never ending. La Plata Mountain Ranch is greatly benefited by its close proximity to Durango, Colorado, for endless adventure and city amenities like great restaurants, theatre’s, medical care, shopping, and regional airport access. The LaPlata Mountain ranch is one of those rare finds; priced right, huge acreage, low overhead, great wildlife, and all wrapped into an unprecedented ranch lifestyle, right out the front door.
