1449 County Rd 551 Pagosa Springs CO Real Estate

This is a true one of a kind ranch and the end of the rainbow for anyone searching for an extraordinary riverfront ranch. The Navajo River Ranch comprises almost 750 acres (748+) with approximately 2.5 miles of riverfront. The ranch encompasses both sides of the rivers from the East to the West boundaries. Both the San Juan River and the Navajo River, including the confluence of the two, flows through the Navajo River Ranch. Adding to the uniqueness of this property are three historical narrow gauge railroad trestles. One of the trestles has now been restored as a picturesque bridge leading to the beautiful ranch home overlooking the river and valley below. No detail was spared in the construction of this fine custom home. The unique architecture also incorporates some trestle features which makes the home feel as though it just belongs here. In addition to the two rivers, the ranch is a mecca for wild game since the owner has never allowed hunting on the ranch. Elk, deer, turkey, bear, ducks and geese, an occasional lion or any animal native to SW Colorado can be found here. It's located only a short distance from some of the Jicarilla's prized hunting lands. Fish, venison or fowl, your choice for a dinner feast provided by your own land if you choose. The ranch also has historic water rights for raising hay or providing lush pasture for livestock. The owner has enjoyed buffalo as well as cattle in more recent years on the ranch. A large amount of new fencing has been constructed and there are several sheds for shelter for horses and cattle. An interesting and historical fact regarding the ranch is the once flourishing town of Juanita is now a part of this property. The owner's many business interests prevents him from fully enjoying the ranch he has built. Due to infrequent opportunities to visit the ranch, he has reluctantly made the decision to offer it for sale. Some lucky buyer will enjoy and appreciate all the Navajo River Ranch offers. Don't just try to imagine what is available here, call for an appointment to see it for yourself.
