BUILD YOUR DREAM HOME ON THE ANIMAS RIVER OVERLOOKING BAKER'S BRIDGE. CRAFT YOUR OWN PRIVATE PARK WITH THE SIGHTS & SOUNDS OF CELADON COLORED RIVER AND STILL POOLS. River frontage is approx. 438'. Truly one of a kind blank canvas for your creativity. Exceptional grounds may include: benches, deck or gazebo to view the river and stunning Animas Valley scenery, garden areas, lily ponds, horse corral, and whatever imaginable in this non-HOA regulated parcel. Irrigation helps keeps it green with ponderosa pine tree cover and attractive rock outcroppings. Enjoy river sounds and recreation well above the designated flood zone. The 2600 SF home which previously stood on this property tragically burned in early 2013. The newer septic appears intact and typical Animas Valley utilities are available on the property, including irrigation. Spectrum Internet, CenturyLInk, Atmos Natural Gas, La Plata Electric and Animas Water Company are evident along County Rd. 250 or on the property. Local historical landmark, Baker's Bridge, is adjacent and clearly visible from this site. The bridge has been a favorite of locals and tourists alike with a great many photographs taken over the years. It's where Paul Newman and Robert Redford jump from a cliff into the river in the movie 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
