Property description

Project Number 2008-221
This is a beautiful 1898 Victorian home that was completely remodeled in 2007. Timeless handcrafted interiors, custom wood work throughout the home. Stainless steel appliances, large fenced private yard. Walk to the river, downtown, library, or across the street to the 'Triangle Park' - one of the best places in town for kids to play and adults to relax. Five minutes to the Discovery Museum. Ten minute walk to Main Avenue with all the restaurants and shopping. A private, landscaped flowering yard with front and back porches and a hammock. Your own beautiful, clean home away from home where you can relax and enjoy the true Durango lifestyle.

Two large bedrooms upstairs each with a king bed. One with a private small balcony with french doors overlooking the park. The second bedroom also has a twin bed. Large oval soaking tub in the upstairs bathroom.

Downstairs bedroom has a queen bed. The leather couch also has a pull out queen bed.

Open floor plan, maple counter tops and hand crafted beams all bathed in natural light will make it hard to actually leave the house to explore Durango, and will be a peaceful and comfortable place to come home to after your days of fun.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1995

About: Forrest and Shona moved to Durango to attend Fort Lewis College in 1990. We have ventured away to explore other areas for a few years but Durango is a hard place to leave, and we feel fortunate to be raising our family here. Shona is a Registered Nurse and Forrest manages property. We have a two young boys (5 & 7) and enjoy all that Durango has to offer for kids and family. It is almost not fair how much there is to do here! Minutes from the house there is great, single track mountain biking or big mountain road biking, kayaking and rafting. If that is not your thing, take a leisurely walk or bike ride on the bike path or head down town for spa/shop/eat/cocktails. Head up to Fort Lewis and take in the stunning mountain views. Finish up and stroll downtown for an appetizer and some dinner with drinks before walking the lit river trail home, crossing the Animas River walking bridge on the way. You hear the train roll by and catch a ride to Silverton!

Why Private Homes, Downtown:
This House was in severe disrepair when it was purchased in 1995. After a lot of love, care, blood, sweat and tears it is back in it's prime and ready for visitors!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, cleanliness, hand crafted home, unique one of a kind touches, privacy, fenced yard, ground level bedroom, good for entertaining, friendly and helpful owners who have lived in Durango 20+ years and can help make your trip everything you want it to be!
