How about a dozen rainbows before breakfast while enjoying views that would easily rival the Tetons!!!
A couple miles north of the New Mexico state line into the State of Colorado going north on Highway 84, on the banks of the Navajo River, is one of the most pristine and beautiful valleys left in North America. Also known as “the little post office of Chromo Colorado, the Riverside Home & Cabin is about 30 minutes north of Chama New Mexico and about 30 minutes south of Pagosa Springs Colorado. This valley is totally protected and made up of working and recreational ranches that span up to the peaks of the South San Juan Wilderness, Price Lakes and thousands of acres of the San Juan National Forest.
The town of Pagosa Springs was a finalist for Outside Magazine’s Best Small Towns In America to live in 2015. Hot Spring Mineral Baths, great dining, a good school system, world class powder skiing (Wolf Creek Pass), a jet capable municipal airport, a hospital and even a new Walmart compliment the community. Nearby Williams Creek Reservoir, 30-mile long Navajo Lake, and surrounded by the 1.8 million acres of the San Juan National Forest adds to this recreational mecca. Additional outdoor activities including rafting and fly fishing on the World Famous Quality Waters of the San Juan River, said to be the best trophy trout fishing in the world today, accent the area...
Durango's La Plata County Regional Airport (about 90 minutes from Chromo) hosts nonstop flights daily from Dallas/Ft Worth, Denver, Phoenix and Los Angeles.
On the River
This riverside 42-acre parcel is located a few miles to the east of Highway 84, with county road access and close to ¾ of a mile of river frontage on the Navajo River. Abundant year-round Navajo River makes up the entire northern border of this 42-acre parcel. The property line goes to the middle of the river, which has been completely restored with rock and log weirs, deep pools, rippling rapids, splashing waterfalls and gravel bars, all with trophy trout habitat in mind. A restoration project of this caliber can exceed $1 million per mile. And, even though 99% of all + /- 35 to 50 acre tracts in Colorado are most likely to be part of an HOA with covenants, restrictions, annual dues and strict regulations, this riverfront 42-acres is without HOA, CCR’s or Conservation Easements!!!!!
Let the river serenade you to sleep every evening from the original ranch style home. This single story dwelling, located directly on the river, is +/- 2700 sq. ft. with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a 2-car garage. The 1970’s era home was recently renovated for modern living at a cost of over $54,000. Today’s replacement cost on this home would exceed $300,000 so this is one of the best riverfront values in the state.
Also included is a late1960’s 2-bedroom cabin that is habitable but needs a little TLC. Located at the far end of the property, just over a turn in the river, the cabin is secluded and would make a nice weekly rental, in-law cabin or caretaker home.
Water rights are very senior, irrigating virtually +/- 95 % of the entire 42 acres making this an ideal property for a horse or cattle producer. Hay production is but one of the many options for the discriminating buyer. Grazing tenants are available.
With the price of this riverfront paradise, it could be a 2nd home, a vacation escape from the everyday hustle of life, a rental property or just a place to store some money…..You can’t go wrong with waterfront! To duplicate this property is some areas could cost you millions.
This property is contiguous and immediately across the river from the Navajo River Ranch and is being offered for the incredible price of $595,000 or combined with Navajo River Ranch for $3,470,000. This incredible riverfront property in this unparalleled setting is very exclusive to the market so call today for a qualified showing. Co-brokers welcome.
