SOLD! Fay Ranches is proud to present the 785± acre Dos Rios Ranch in Archuleta County situated to the south of the Colorado mountain town, Pagosa Springs. The Rio Blanco River flows through the heart of the landholding for over a mile-and-a-half and Colorado’s San Juan River flows through the southwest corner of the ranch just above where the two rivers converge. Dos Rios adjoins USFS lands directly accessing over 3 million acres of National Forest and wilderness areas in the San Juan Mountains.
The ranch home is situated on a knoll overlooking the ranch center with long vistas of Dos Rios hay meadows and beyond. Dos Rios has literal end-of-the-road privacy and encompasses a valley and river bottom with control of its surrounding undeveloped and natural ridgelines ensuring long term scenic protection. Looking up the valley from the home are framed snowcapped views of the high and rugged San Juan Mountains.
A good portion of the valley bottom is level, with irrigated hay meadows gently sloping toward Rio Blanco and down valley. Dos Rios Ranch is well watered and the landscaped areas of ranch central are irrigated with a sprinkler system and the hay meadow is flood-irrigated via a system of irrigation ditches. Water rights totaling 8 cfs will be conveyed in the sale, providing for continued cattle ranching and hay production. Dos Rios also has ideal conditions, areas, and water for growing vegetables, planting orchards, beekeeping and other holistic endeavors for the ranch owner who wants a natural and healthy organic farm-to-table setup and lifestyle.
