Beaumont Ranch is nestled in the heart of the Animas Valley, a stunning 20-minute drive north of Durango, surrounded by scenery carved by ancient glaciers and peaks that rise nearly 13, 000 feet. The 86-acre estate features immaculately maintained residences (6) and ancillary structures (7), perfectly manicured grounds, approximately 1700 feet of Animas river frontage and ample water rights. Beaumont is the ultimate legacy property and retreat for family. Unlike many mountain ranches, Beaumont enjoys easy accessibility to countless recreational opportunities and city conveniences alike. The remarkable and private inner channel of the Animas River flows on the western boundary of the ranch, with first-class trout fishing. In addition, enjoy six productive ponds stocked with rainbow trout. Awe-inspiring mountain views can be seen from every vantage point of the property with Engineer Mountain as the headliner. The 86-acre ranch consists of four separately deeded parcels featuring a 7274 SF main residence, 2100 SF cottage, 2257 SF detached garage & gear room, 1922 SF heated "south barn", 1450 SF staff house, 1934 SF "middle barn", 4409 SF guest house with a 1213 SF loft apartment, 1100 SF caretakers apartment, 1855 SF maintenance/woodshop barn, and a 2727 SF "north barn". The main residence is discretely set back from the county road and is surrounded by specimen trees and gardens of beautiful plantings and sculptural boulders. Upon entering the stately and welcoming entrance identified by a river rock fireplace, the residence is approached through the first of two crossed-aspen fence lines, proceeding via a curved driveway edged with maple, cottonwood and other trees. A second fence line frames a four-acre private oasis with lush lawns, trees and flower gardens that surround and complement the elegant yet rustic main house, cottage and garage. This area is protected from the magnificent elk that frequent the property by six high-crossed aspen fencing, with gates on three sides. An automated custom-designed gate at the entry controls access and provides for additional security. The front walkway and patio pond areas are framed by massive boulders sourced from Utah. Moving away from the house, the gardens have been carefully landscaped to include a variety of flowering plants, evergreen and deciduous trees, a large pond and vistas of the surrounding mountains. There is a wide variety of introduced foliage. Inside, the interior has been designed to perfectly complement its surrounding landscape and has been impeccably and professionally decorated. The custom entry door frames the dramatic vista of Engineer Mountain, before you even step inside the house. The house abounds in comfortable spaces for large and small gatherings alike - both inside and out. The large living room features vaulted ceilings with exposed beam and a dramatic river rock fireplace. Off of the grand entry, the cozy library is situated featuring built-in book shelves and fireplace- a great spot to unwind. Gather in the family room for movies, which features a concealed projector and large 126â screen, creating a spacious media room with full surround sound. The professionally equipped kitchen and butler's pantry will suit every chef whether preparing meals for a large party or a more intimate gathering. On the main level is the private master wing featuring dual bedrooms. The upper gallery space leads to three en suite guest rooms, laundry room and an office.
