Fitness Plus Magazine agrees. They mention, “Living in a mountain town has benefits like clean air and unlimited recreation.” Living in Three Springs is even better. Centrally located in La Plata County, and within the city limits of Durango-one of the greatest mountain towns, Three Springs sets in a prime location. To the Northwest, it’s just a short drive- or an even shorter mountain bike ride up and over the Telegraph Trail- into Historic Downtown Durango. To the Southeast, head into Bayfield via HWY 160 or head out on a road bike ride towards Durango La Plata County Airport. Within Three Springs itself, miles of trails interweave through Green Built neighborhoods and connect to trail heads that lead to public recreation and open space areas. The benefits of living in the sustainable development of Three Springs are endless.
Built based upon the principles of Traditional Neighborhood Developments, neighbors can work, shop, and play within a relatively small and fully accessible radius from where they live. To have a “neighborhood,” you need “neighbors,” – Three Springs has created a mixed-use master plan that was designed with the centerpiece being its neighbors and pedestrians. Living here, neighbors benefit from increased physical activity- walkways and bike paths are available right out their front door; reduced mental anxiety- less of a drive in stress ridden traffic; and with neighborhood parks, restaurants within walking distance, and workplaces only minutes away from home- neighbors get to spend more quality time with loved ones.
Each and every new home built at Three Springs has a sustainable design and has been constructed under the guidelines of Built Green Colorado. Built Green Colorado standards include: increased air quality, use of energy efficient appliances, reduced and or re-used building materials, water preservation measures and much more. Three Springs builders’ practices and the quality and craftsmanship of Three Springs homes, not only benefit Three Springs neighbors, their health, and their pocketbook, but these standards greatly benefit our environment as well.
