About this property

Upper Mill Creek represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to own a 41 acre parcel Surrounded by National Forest, with permanent and direct highway access. Tucked away on the flanks of Engineer Mountain, only 4 miles north of Purgatory Resort, this property is an alpine oasis of meadows, forests, wetlands, and water. Your only neighbors are the abundant wildlife that regularly pass through the property. An unassuming gate hides a private half-mile driveway leading up to a spacious and comfortable home with views for miles. The contemporary exterior belies a traditional mountain interior, finished with pine and pecan, and centered around an immense 2-story field-stone fireplace. Winter transportation to the home can be had via the included snowcat (no plowing necessary) which can be driven directly into the attached garage. The property boasts a pond, a seasonal stream with waterfall, and a natural year-round spring with another waterfall. Surrounded by the San Juan National Forest, with quick highway access, the possibilities for adventure are endless. Skiing, golf, hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding are all close at hand. While the charming and historic towns of Durango and Silverton are each approximately 30 minutes away by car. Perfect for a family enclave or a corporate retreat; this is the special property for which you have been searching. Call today to arrange your tour.
