Private Homes house description

Sitting in a meadow at 8800 feet surrounded by 12,000 foot mountains, this beautiful custom-built home will be the most relaxing vacation you have ever had. Surrounded by mountains covered in aspen and pine trees and located one mile from Durango Mountain Resort, whatever the season, this is the perfect getaway.

Built in 2008, this 3000 sf house is your home away from home to enjoy with friends and family. With beautiful views from every window, a large kitchen, outside deck, and spectacular fire place in the great room, you won’t want to leave. Except that all of the wonders of southern Colorado will be drawing you outdoors.

The house is located in the San Juan mountains 25 miles north of downtown Durango and 20 miles south of Silverton Historic District. Skiing, hiking, birding, and biking are all just minutes away. Whatever the season, you will find outdoor entertainment. Winter and summer activities abound with skiing for the whole family and hiking and biking from easy strolls to some of the best trails in the United States. But don’t forget to come for the Fall colors, when the Aspen trees turn the most gorgeous shades of yellow and orange.

The house is located on a paved, community-maintained road. It is a short walk to the indoor community pool and hot tubs. The driveway has 220v hookups to park and charge a small motor home. Inside, you will find a large kitchen perfect for cooking and enjoying the company of family and friends at the end of a long day. Three bedrooms have queen beds and the forth bedroom has a double bed, twin bunk, and twin trundle. There is also a porta crib and twin air mattress available to use.

When you visit the San Juans, you will want to come back again and again. Are you looking for the perfect base for a ski-trip, biking vacation, wedding, family vacation, reunion, honeymoon, or anniversary? Look no further.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: I live in San Diego, CA with my wife and two children (ages 6 and 2). We have a small business that makes software for kids; painting, animation, you know…fun stuff. San Diego gives us the beach, but we also love the mountains. All year round there is something for us to do. We plan to use this home as a family retreat for many, many years to come. For us, the house is just 5 hours door-to- door with an easy flight through Phoenix.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      This is our second home in the San Juans. In 2004 we were visiting Durango and drove up to Silverton. The drive is amazing and just before the passes sits beautiful Cascade Village. We drove by on a Friday. By Sunday we were in escrow on a condo. We just could not resist. I wanted a base to go mountain biking. My wife wanted a place to go skiing. We both got exactly what we were looking for. Three years later we bought a lot in the meadow and built a home for our growing family. In the winter, DMR is the perfect resort for our family. There are plenty of trees for me, great open runs for my wife, the half-pipe for our son, and great people at the day care for our daughter until she is read to get on skis. And best of all, Durango’s idea of a busy day means you can’t just ski right on to the lift. In the summer, we can hike the kids to Potato Lake, ride the Alpine slide at DMR, go biking, or just wander through the wildflowers in the meadow. If you can make it out in the Fall, the colors are breathtaking. When the aspens change color, it is beautiful. So beautiful in fact, we named our daughter after it. Our Aspen loves going to her Colorado house.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Short lift lines in the most beautiful place on earth. That is just one of the benefits of a trip to the San Juans. The area is huge and there are not a lot of people. It is just peaceful. We built this house for ourselves. So when you are staying here, you don’t feel like you are in a rental. You are in a home. It is welcoming, warm, and comfortable. While you are there you will call it your own.
