Property description

Built in 2011 the Cider House is a custom two-story green home located North of Durango in the Animas river valley. Originally orchards and farms, the area now has a rural neighborhood feel with lots of open space and land. We live on the North side of the property and are available anytime if you need anything.

The house has a large yard/orchard with beautiful mountain and cliff views. It can be rented with the Hermosa House vacation rental for large groups. Please contact me for multiple rental discounts.

The covered porch with bar-b-q grill and seating opens to a huge yard and orchard. In the yard you will find a horse shoe pit and ping pong table. Past the orchard and fields you will see the D&SNG Train pass by on its way to Silverton several times a day. A short walk away (1/4 mile) is the Hermosa Creek Grill and a convenience/liquor store. PJ’s grocery store and Trimble Hot Springs is 2 miles South.

Our chickens roam the open areas and orchards and 1dz farm fresh eggs will be in the fridge for your breakfast. Cherries, peaches, apricots, apples, and plumbs are available to pick in season.

The master bedroom has a luxurious pillow top king size bed and master bath. Also upstairs there is another full bathroom, the 2nd bedroom with a queen bed, and the 3rd bedroom that can sleep up to five with two full beds (bunk) and a pull out twin trundle bed. This beautifully furnished smoke free house has a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops and bar, custom cabinets, high end appliances, coffee-maker, micro, toaster, large gas bar-b-q, etc. etc. It has everything you need to make a great meal.

The house can sleep up to 9 in beds. There is queen sofa bed in the TV room that can be closed off via pocket doors from the living room if desired and a pac-n-play for the little ones.

The Cider House has an open floor plan, new furniture, high speed Wi-Fi Internet and a large library of 200+ movies as well as an HD TV with cable. The shelves are stocked with area maps, guide books on hiking, biking, and area activities and historical books on the train and Durango history.

We are in the perfect location for outdoor fun and just short drive to Durango. Close to the Cider House are hot springs, hiking and biking trails, a grocery store, pizza place, gas station and liquor store.

This is a net zero energy use home built with quality materials. A high efficiency boiler provides In floor heat throughout the house. Additional bathroom heaters and south facing windows make this a very warm, bright and comfortable home. The solar panels on the roof replace all the electricity this house uses from the grid. Recycling bins are provided.

We are local owners that live on the property a few houses away so you can be sure if you need anything or have any problems, we can accommodate your needs. We have 3 boys ages 10-12 that love making new friends, playing soccer, hide and seek, tag and other outdoor fun on the property.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I grew up in Durango and moved back in 2000. It's a great place to live and raise our 3 boys. We love the outdoors and spend lots of time hiking, camping, rafting, etc. The winter brings skiing and hockey.

Why the Owner Chose Hermosa:
This 6.5 acre property was once a much bigger farm with the main farmhouse built around 1902. Despite the growth in this area it still retains a rural feel while being just 10 minutes away from Durango. There are dozens of mature fruit trees on the property including apple, pear, peach, plum, apricot, and cherry and lots of space for the kids to run around. We built our house in the north orchard in 2004 and I built the Cider House in the South orchard in 2011.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I built this home in 2011 using quality materials to create a comfortable and modern energy efficient house. In floor heating in stained concrete floors and good insulation keep the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. All new appliances, furniture, beds, etc.. It is sunny and bright and it is just a comfortable house. The covered porch is so great for sitting, eating, and looking out at the trees, the mountains, and the steam train chugging by in the distance.
