Three Springs

Three Springs in beautiful Durango, Colorado is one of the most vibrant places to buy a home and live life in the southwest. Our neighborhoods are alive with residents who enjoy “glee”-lined streets (and trees); exciting community events and gatherings; local restaurants; a growing business district miles of trails; parks and wetlands areas, and being next door neighbors to Mercy Regional Medical Center’s campus.


Edgemont Ranch lies in the heart of Southwest Colorado, just six and a half miles northeast of historic downtown Durango. The residents and property owners of Edgemont Ranch welcome you. We feel Edgemont Ranch offers some uniquely important amenities not available in other developments.

Twin Butte

There’s a place with more miles of trails than roads. Where the sun sets between peaks and evergreens frame each view. Where screen time naturally gives way to green time, and folks get together for farm-fresh food, play dates at the park and concerts on the lawn.


This is Twin Buttes of Durango, a master-planned community located just two miles from downtown. Inside city limits, yet a world away. We invite you to come explore.

Energy Efficiency

“We are extremely pleased with our custom-built home by Sutter Homes. First and foremost, the energy efficiency is exceptional. Last LPEA bill was $13.80 and the Atmos gas bill was $28."

"Sutters pricing was by far the best I could find, leaving ample equity when I sold the home. My utility bills were still extremely low and we loved how quiet and comfortable the house was."
