Penn Ranch

Sold: 2023 Penn Ranch Durango, Colorado

Details & Features

Located in one of the most scenic and tightly held valleys in the Rocky Mountains lies the incomparable Penn Ranch. This Durango Ranch for sale boasts +343 acres of irrigated pasture, timbered hillsides leading to vast and wild public lands, dramatic views of towering granite peaks, spring-fed ponds, all highlighted by a picture-perfect trout fishery meandering and tumbling its way through the ranch. This offering is a multi-generational ranch holding, accessible year-round, that offers the best-of-the-best for privacy, scenery, recreation, and direct access to some of the most inspiring and untamed wilderness areas in the Lower 48.
