21916 County Road 500 Pagosa Springs CO Real Estate
Sanders Farm on the San Juan River, Pagosa Springs, Colorado Rainbows & mule deer, bald eagles, bull elk & senior water rights!!! Nestled along both sides of the San Juan River, about halfway between the Pagosa Springs Colorado and the 29-mile long Navajo Lake, lies the Sanders Farm, +/- 40 deeded acres of sportsman's paradise. The +/- 20 acres of irrigated land has carried 8-12 cattle annually and a very nice garden. The farm has supplied the family with most of their annual farm produce and beef. And, except for this past year, the farm has produced hundreds of bails of hay annually. With a million plus acres of the Southern Ute Reservation bordering you to the north and the Jicarilla to the South, elk, mule deer, turkeys and waterfowl also frequent the property to provide excellent hunting. This property includes over 1/3 mile of both sides of the San Juan River so you can release a few rainbows before breakfast. And did I mention an abundance of water? The Sanders Farm has senior water rights on the San Juan River. There are four outbuildings (2 hay barns, a horse barn and a greenhouse) compliment the custom built +-2200 3/2 salt box style farm house, approximately 2200 sq. ft., with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and covered porches. The ranch sits back from the road and has views of the entire property and the San Juan River Valley. The property enjoys county maintained road access and is just 35 minutes from town. Oak, Cottonwoods and irrigated meadows frame the river bottom and cedars, juniper and pinions landscape the ridges. Nearby Navajo Lake is 29-miles of underused recreational playground and called Colorado's very own Lake Powell. The 2 boat ramps (one in New Mexico and one in Colorado) and hundreds of miles of finger canyons make this body of water one of the best kept recreational secrets in the Southwest. Regional Air access via Durango Colorado Airport is approximately 80 minutes and the Wolf Creek Ski Area is a little over an hour. If you're looking for a rural setting, close one of the best small towns in America with no HOA board breathing down your neck, then perhaps the Sanders Farm is the full time or recreational home you've been looking for.
