Spectacular La Plata views from this beautiful 35 acre parcel in the lush Elk Stream Ranch is ready for your Colorado home! Easy access in that Elk Stream Ranch is located 23 miles straight west on Hwy 160 from downtown Durango, then drop south through the two secured entry gates into the Ranch; this parcel is just about two miles from the entry. Beautiful homes established in the area; and the terrain throughout the Ranch is exciting, with tall Ponderosa pines and fabulous rim rock views. Great for horse lovers in that the Ranch enjoys private access to over 6000 acres of BLM land. FEATURES: Incredibly low property taxes of only $8 per year due to the ag status of the land. Bonus - no need to dig a well! This parcel is one of only 5 parcels belonging to the Lions Head Water Association; paid water tap included; you will enjoy excellent and abundant water from this shared commercial well which is monitored annually by the State of Colorado. There are two excellent building sites depending on which of the spectacular views appeals to you the most. Building plans for a 2500 sf single level home are available with the lot. Soil testing has been completed by Trautner Geotech LLC for rock and bearing, with report available for designing the footings. Septic contractors report conventional systems have been used in Elk Stream. Water just requires a meter for hooking up. Electric and phone are to the property. Only $1200 per year in HOA dues takes care of road maintenance and snowplowing. The HOA works closely with the National Forest Service and is considered a fire-wise community. A grader is kept on site all winter and the roads are well maintained. There is hiking at the end of the canyon road in the neighborhood, and national forest trails across from the entrance on highway 160. Due to the orientation of the surrounding acreage there will not be any residences close to the building pads on lot 16 and both building sites have good southern exposure.
