Blue Hill Ranch, Durango, Colorado.   Investment property with incredible trophy mule deer and elk hunting! Stock market too high and volatile?  Why not put some money to work in one of the nations most sought after small towns, Durango, Colorado while enjoying some of the best trophy big game hunting that exists!  Blue Hill Ranch’s +/- 270 deeded acres overlooks the beautiful 1500-acre Lake Nighthorse and is just +/- 10  minutes from downtown Durango’s incredible shopping and dining.  Located just 20 minutes to La Plata County Airpark with daily direct non-stop flights to Ft. Worth/Dallas, Phoenix and Denver. Blue Hill’s +/- 270 acres has been secretly producing several documented 200 + class deer annually, and trophy class bull elk to the mid 300’s.  Excellent for archery, muzzleloader or rifle.  The property BGU receives over-the-counter rifle elk tags and the property qualifies for one landowner buck tag annually.   A limited cattle grazing tenant ($1000 per year) pays expenses and the very low agricultural status keeps the taxes low (below $200).  The existing rural water tap is permitted for up to 8 homes. The property is currently vacant land with no improvements so one is not paying for someone else’s dream.  The property is fenced and the cattle tenant keeps the fences up, with local caretaker options, so offsite ownership is very attractive.  Blue Hills is also served by power across the property.  The property has been leased by one of SW Colorado’s premier trophy mule deer outfitters (who also guides the Governors’ tags) and has been “one of my best producers of trophy mule deer” over the last few years.  All pictures of game came from Blue Hill. With paved highway access and less than 10 minutes from Downtown Durango, this property has it all - Ridgetop 360-degree views framed by several hundred year old Ponderosas, native grass meadows, oak stands intermingled with Pinion/juniper.  There’s a year-round pond on the ranch that holds deer and elk all year and an incredible location for annual dove shoots.Just 8 miles away, Durango has incredible fly fishing with gold medal water accessible for miles through town and the Quality Waters of the San Juan +/- 1 hour.  Lake Nighthorse (2 miles) has public boating & fishing.  Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory) Ski Mountain offers +/- 2200 ft. of downhill skiing and is but  25 minutes up the mountain.  Shopping, coffee shops, galleries and some of the best dining in the Southwest are but minutes away. Just how much are you enjoying your investments?  Last time I checked, Wells Fargo Advisors have not invited me to go on a trophy mule deer and elk hunt, while collecting their management fees, so compare that to the annual tax bill of less than $200 on Blue Hill Ranch.  Comparably the average 3Bedroom/2Bath home in Durango exceeds $500,000 today so put some money to work that you can enjoy!   Blue Hill’s existing and paid water taps will permit 8 homes.  Priced below appraisal.Incredible proven hunting retreats with very close proximity to shopping, dining and activities for family like Blue Hill Ranch are almost impossible to find so call or email today for more information and your qualified showing!
