The 525-acre Cottonwood Springs Ranch is an immaculate mountain equestrian property located in La Plata County 12 miles (20 minutes) east of vibrant and attractive Durango, CO and 10 miles (15 minutes) north of the friendly town of Bayfield. The ranch is remarkably well maintained and is known for its distinguished collection of impressive buildings and improvements, most notable of which is the 5,700 sq. ft. northern New Mexico territorial-style headquarters residence. The ranch is fully equipped with state-of-the art equestrian breeding facilities including numerous barns, separate heated foaling stalls, steel pipe fenced pastures, training arena, hot walker, and round pen. Situated on the banks of Texas Creek, which feeds the Los Pinos River, the ranch is graced with a signature cottonwood gallery winding gracefully through flawless irrigated pastures surrounded by a mixed spruce, aspen and ponderosa pine forest.  Near perfection at an elevation of 7,500 ft., this magnificent equestrian estate borders U.S. BLM (Bureau of Land Management) land with a trailhead to the 3 million acre San Juan National Forest and the famous Weminuche Wilderness Area. A terrific investment opportunity, without question Cottonwood Springs is one of the finest multi-purpose equestrian ranches in the state, and a rare find in the Durango/Four Corners region.
