27+ acres of stunning vacant residential riverfront land in the heart of the majestic Rocky Mountains of Southwest Colorado. It's ideally located only 25 miles from the world-class Telluride Ski & Golf Resort with year-round paved access off the scenic San Juan Skyway. The parcel is bisected by the beautiful Upper Dolores River home to brown, brook, rainbow and the occasional cutthroat trout with over a half mile of frontage. Bordered on two sides by hundreds of thousands of acres of pristine San Juan National Forest yet within walking distance to the quaint historic town of Rico, it provides the perfect balance of privacy, recreation and unspoiled nature along with convenient town amenities. The land is a mix of sun-kissed open meadows and gently sloping hillsides graced with aspen groves, pine and blue spruce. This is an ideal location for a private estate or riverfront lodge and also a developer's dream with no covenants or deed restrictions and county codes allowing up to 9 lots. There are numerous sunny building envelopes on both sides of the river all offering expansive river and mountain views and direct private access to many miles of river and forest trails.
