A beautifully remodeled, VRBO income potential, Animas Valley home with acreage! Encompassing the east side of the parcel meanders the gorgeous Animas River that provides exceptional fishing access year round, a private sandy beach, and an abundance of wildlife. The name Elk Beach comes from the resident elk that enjoy the water and grass seasonally. The prestigious Animas Valley is known for its agricultural lands and abundance of wildlife, while having big mountain and red cliff views. The land includes surface irrigation water rights through the Animas Consolidated Ditch Company and river rights, which may yield several hundred bales of hay or provide the opportunity for its new owner to create self-sustainability if they want their own private garden, grow an orchard, raise horses/livestock, or any other agricultural endeavor. The home has a spacious open floor plan for the family, with nicely sized bedrooms and bathrooms. The kitchen and living room flow openly into the living room with a gorgeous rock fireplace. Enjoy the wrap around deck that faces the mountains in the morning or evening, or relax in the hot tub. Not only does the property encourage outdoor recreation on site, but the home is built for the outdoor recreation enthusiasts with a four car garage large enough for full size trucks, suvs, or storage for boats, paddle boards, or UTVs. The lowest level also has a pool room/hang out space with its own private bar. Dont let the multi-level detour you there is an elevator making groceries and accessibility just like a single level home! There are no HOA restrictions or covenants. This is the most affordable riverfront acreage with a tremendous turn key home in the north valley! On site caretaker keeps these grounds immaculate, and also manages the ARBNB for this property that generates ample income and would be a great option for the new owner if they cant be full time residents.
