The Red Bridge Ranch Estate is an outstanding 35+/- acre luxury estate nestled in the Animas Valley near the quintessential mountain town of Durango, Colorado. The area is steeped in history from ancestors of the Ancestral Puebloans, the Utes, and the Spanish conquistadors. The 19th century brought ranching and agriculture back along with modern movie making such as the 1969 western classic "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid". The owners paid tribute to the history of the valley in planning and building the Red Bridge Ranch Estate. No expense was spared in the design of the estate and its grounds. A powerful team of designers took their individual specialties to the limit. The home has been featured in Luxe Interior Design, praising its ability to merge outdoor and indoor living, quoting, "Colorado home puts a vivid spin on Western Style". Architect Adam Garner described the home this way: "A 40-acre family compound in the Animas River Valley, this sprawling mountain modern lodge is located along the edge of a Creek. Designed for indoor-outdoor living the home has grand entertaining spaces, multiple access points to the many covered porches and terraces. The central great room has high vaulted ceilings with tall windows and a locally sourced stone fireplace. A loft overlooks this space and serves as the entrance to three upper floor en-suite bedrooms with elevator access. Although grand in scale, there are also many smaller, intimate spaces to feel at home, a cozy den and lounge area, and an informal breakfast nook adjacent to the kitchen. The master suite is a secluded retreat on the main floor with its own covered porch and lavish master spa with views of the mountains beyond. The Saloon has a vaulted ceiling, a river rock fireplace, and an old west-style bar. A self-contained caretaker's cottage is located over the four-car garage and has convenient, secure access to the main house through the service wing. The homes take advantage of the views, setting, and proximity to the canal...a true retreat. The outdoors also played a strong role in the design-it's ever-present through 16 sets of glass doors and folding walls that open to porches, patios, balconies and covered living areas. "There are a lot of ways to get outside. This house really lends itself to an open flow," Gardner says, adding that the dwelling's outstretched wings establish a dialogue between indoor and outdoor space. "The wings pull you in and draw you out," he explains". Landscape designer Lorain McGlothlin, in turn, built walkways that encircle the house through stacked-stone beds planted with deer and elk resistant perennials such as lavender and coneflower, mixed with shrubs and aspen trees. Interior designer Julie Massucco Kliener took her designs from the incredible sunrises and sunsets and the owners' love for colors along with incorporating the region's wild west mindset and Native American spirit. The exterior attributes of the estate are just as stunning as the home. You enter the ranch over a red bridge, thus the name, and go down a tree-lined drive opening to a beautiful estate. Giant cottonwoods, running water, numerous ponds, fencing, impressive horse barn with indoor stalls, living quarters above, and exercise area with stunning views of the estate. There are numerous outdoor living areas to enjoy, a firepit, and a tennis court with a viewing deck. The land is filled with the sounds of nature. You may hear a bugling bull elk from the significant elk herd that calls the ranch home, with knee-deep grasses, protected benches, and running springs, it is easy to understand why. The ranch has .25cfs of water rights out of the Ambold Ditch No. 2 for irrigation, recreation, piscatorial, and filling of ponds. Red Bridge Ranch Estate pays respect to its old west roots and comfortably lays in a modern contemporary ranch house blended with landscapes of ranch life and modern amenities, giving a perfect tranquil lifestyle.
