The Best of Both Worlds

Nestled in Nature, Two Miles from Downtown

Pop into town for lunch with a friend. Make a quick stop at the hardware store. Drop off a forgotten lunch bag to school. Twin Buttes is inside the city limits of Durango, Colorado, giving you all the benefits of town while living in a natural setting.

Other advantages include city water and sewer, and city maintenance of the paved roads, sidewalks, the modern storm water runoff system, fire hydrants, and the 1,250,000-gallon water tank up the hill. The city picks up trash and recycling. Private sources are contracted for electricity, natural gas, and 1GB fiber optic internet. Every home comes with a sprinkler system, and stringent forest management both in and far above Twin Buttes has surpassed guidelines for fire safety.

Small Town, Big Culture

Durango regularly makes lists of the best small towns in America. Located in Southwest Colorado, it has a friendly vibe, an historic train running through its charming downtown, a 4-year college, two hospitals, and a 10-mile paved trail along the Animas River. The river runs right through town, offering lovely views and opportunities for beach picnics, wading, and river-running of all kinds.

Come Out and Play

From mountain biking, hiking, and skiing to whitewater rafting, kayaking, paddle boarding, and fly fishing, Durango’s location in the foothills of Colorado’s San Juan Mountains and its sunny weather make it an ideal place to play outside.

Hit the slopes at Purgatory Ski Resort, or enjoy groomed cross-country ski trails across the road. Ride the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Sail, paddle, or waterski on Lake Nighthorse, play golf, and soak in the hot springs afterward. Or hike all the way to Denver on the 500-mile Colorado Trail.
