Beautiful country home only 25 minutes from downtown Durango on 12 private acres.

First time on the market!  The 12.5 acres of gently sloping terrain is perfect for horses, yet has plenty of ponderosa and pinion pines that gives this lot the perfect quintessential Colorado setting. This cedar sided home has 2350sf of gracious living space. Inside you will find a generous sized kitchen with slab granite counter tops, a large bar/eating area, and separate pantry. The open concept combines kitchen with the living and dining areas. Also on the main level are two bedrooms, a main bathroom, along with a laundry room with a dog wash. Upstairs is the deluxe Master bedroom suite with soaring ceilings and views of the La Plata mountain range. The bath has a large shower with two heads and bench, his and her double sinks and a private commode area. On the upper level you will also find a large loft that lends itself perfectly as a recreation room, office or additional living room area. The woodstove in the living room keeps the heating bills in check and adds ambiance to the “lodge” feeling of this fine home. A 3- zone, radiant heating system keeps things comfortable all winter long as well. Other amenities include on-demand water heater, a Hauge water filtration system, and a remote control skylight for extra ventilation in the loft. In the lower level is a 3 car garage with extra room for all of the “man toys”. The covered back porch is a perfect place to listen to the water feature and an easy step to the hot-tub for relaxing. The front deck offers fabulous La Plata mountain views and welcomes guests to the home along with the sprinkler system that keeps everything green near the home. The entire lot is fenced with high tensile smooth wire which is perfect for horses. There is even a cattle guard at the front entrance way, so no gates are needed. The smaller landscaped yard is fenced for dogs and at 8’ high which also keeps out the deer and protects all the plants. A 20’x60’ barn is perfect for wood storage and all the essential equipment for maintaining the 12.5 acres. The entire house and all the decks were just restained.  Come and experience the quiet country life in style!
