Description

The Red Bridge Ranch is an outstanding 40 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 of the Red Bridge Ranch. No expense was spared in the design of the estate and its grounds.

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, river rock fireplace and old west style bar. A self-contained caretakers 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 canala true retreat. The outdoors also played a strong role in the designits 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 dwellings outstretched wings establish a dialogue between indoor and outdoor space.
