Details &

Just ten minutes’ drive from historic downtown Durango, the ranch offers amenities rare in the region including paved access, a range of terrains from forest to field, and a border abutting 1,500 acres of Ute Mountain Tribe lands. Despite the feeling of privacy gained from its unique location, the Property is just minutes from Hesperus ski area, and convenient to Purgatory, Telluride, and Wolf Creek for world-class skiing.

Stone terraces and paved drives with snowmelt systems line the Property, while manicured landscaping including water features, multiple ponds, hardscaping and lush meadows with tall Pine and Scrub Oak trees complement the natural environment. Dramatic vistas of La Plata Mountain range abound; indeed, they can be enjoyed from nearly every vantage point on this incredible Property.

Completed in 2012 by Phillip Liederbach of Chicago’s famed Liederbach & Graham Architects, Ute Junction Ranch is built for entertaining. A grand approach leads to a cobbled courtyard reclaimed from Chicago city streets, and the creamy façade of Minnesota limestone stands in contrast to Durango’s wide blue skies. Duck, elk and deer freely roam the Property’s extensive acreage, contributing to the serenity and atmosphere of peace that pervades this exceptional estate.

7 bedrooms, 7 full and 4 half baths comprise the main residence, whose 16,000 sf also include a gourmet kitchen, temperature-controlled wine room, multiple sitting areas, six fireplaces and an elevator. For long-term guests or live-in staff, there are two separate residences on the Property, each with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and attached 2-car garages. Robust maintenance systems include roof ice melt prevention, in-floor radiant heat, on-site water treatment, security, Lutron lighting, and a generator powered by natural gas.

Additional structures include 2 heated barns/shops with ample storage for cars and equipment plus a horse barn with fenced pasture. The Property is fenced and cross-fenced, making it suitable for horses, cattle, goats, and other livestock. Water rights include 3 permitted wells, two water taps secured from the future Animas La Plata Water Project, two lined ponds, and rights to the Brown Brothers Ditch and Pine Ridge Ditch, which are used to irrigate the Property’s fields.
