Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: My husband and I purchased our property in Durango, Colorado in 1998. We look forward to our eventual retirement in Durango. We built our home there in 2004-2005, and try to visit as often as we can with family. We have four wonderful children, two loyal dogs, and a precious granddaughter.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Durango is beautiful and very diverse. There are plenty of things to do regardless of the season you visit. Our house is 11.5 miles east of the town of Durango. The house sits on a south facing slope above a beautiful valley. We have plenty of sunshine in the house all year long!

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Although we have the peace and quiet of the country, we are close enough to town that grocery shopping, dinner out, or the movies are all easy. Durango has a variety of excellent restaurants and the Main Street shopping is great. There is also a mall with Pottery Barn, J.C. Penny, etc. There is a Wal-Mart. Mesa Verde National Park is an hour west of the house. Durango Mountain Resort (Purgatory Ski area) is 40 minutes north. The Animas River has great fishing and rafting and runs right through town. There is a terrific river trail that goes through town for walking, jogging or biking. Durango has a great Community Center with workout equipment and a really fun indoor pool and climbing wall. The day fee is very reasonable and kids 9 and over can be dropped off.
