Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: The City of Durango allowed us to build the Riversedge only after careful review and consideration....it is right on the Animas River and adjacent one of the city's nicest parks. I was fortunate to operate my law office here until retiring in 2009 and remodeling the 1000 sf space as an 'upper end', luxurious vacation home. My wife and I are new at this but attempted to address every detail. The location is ideal, in our view, because of the proximity to downtown Durango yet the quiet setting amidst the large cottonwood trees at the park next door. We have thoroughly enjoyed making the acquaintance of a number of our guests from all over the country (and world!) since opening in 2009. Thanks for considering us! We hope to extend some 'Durango hospitality' to you during your stay in this, our favorite part of Colorado!

Why the Owner Chose Riversedge:
Simply put, the most luxurious vacation home we know of in town -- and, RIGHT on a very private section of river.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Central location so you can easily access Durango galleries, shopping and restaurants....yet, very private with your own convenient, off-street parking.
