Hello!
I own two separately deeded 10 acre parcels side by side.
Both border 9000 acres of public land and are secluded and quiet. They are located approximately 30 miles sw of Durango, Colorado and have a nice view of the La Plata mountains to the north about 20 miles. These are the southern San Juan Mountains.

There is no water on the property but a very nice spring that you pay $100 per year to use as much as you want. There are many people hauling water in this area and it is only about 9 miles from the property on a straight country road. The last 1.75 miles to the property is an unmaintained county road. I am keeping one of the 10 acre parcels to live off the grid and will built a small structure out there this summer.
I have already done experiments with gravity fed drip irrigation on timers to grow food. It was very productive and I was able to leave for extended periods and it took care of itself on two double A batteries. I would be
willing to sell one of the 10 acre parcels. Let me know if you are interested in more info

    That is some beautiful country! I worked there one summer in the mountains above Durango, just off the Silverton narrow gauge line. Wish I had the money for the land! Best of luck though, as that sounds like some prime real estate, should sell quickly.

    Do you still have the 10 acres for sale, and do you have pictures?

    I just posted something current with photos but I can’t seem to find the post. I’m asking 32K OBO. I wasn’t sure that the original information above was even on the site or I would have replied sooner. Keep your eye out for the post with pics, if you don’t find it, email me at: bcmurdoc@yahoo.com and I will send some pics and answer any questions. Thanks

    Why is there no price listed? Are you asking over market value? I get suspicious about anything for sale that does not have the price listed up front.

    Very interested in that area. What is the actual address as I’d like to be close to Mancos.
