Private Homes house description

This beautiful property is the best of both worlds. It is just minutes from fine dining and shopping in Historic Downtown Durango or 20 minutes from hitting the slopes at Durango Mountain Resort at Purgatory. The property is as close to town as you can get, while stilling feeling like you’re in the mountain wilderness.

The unique house, with studio apartment, are nestled between large pine trees and situated in the Animas Valley with gorgeous views of the red rock Folsom Ridge. The complex is private and serene, but has many amenities very close by. Within walking distance from the house, is a Durango Transit trolley stop and a fun après ski destination restaurant/bar – Mountain Madness Brewing.

Cozy is another theme for this mountain getaway. An open floor plan gives the home a flow from kitchen, through the dining room and into the living room. This house is perfect for dinnertime and entertaining large groups; featuring a wet bar, a dining room table that seats eight and a table in the sunroom that seats six.

The living room has a wood-burning stone fireplace and an over-sized window seat. The living area and bedrooms have original hardwood floors, while the kitchen, sunroom, mudroom and bathrooms all contain ceramic tile floors. The vaulted, wood-plank ceiling and exposed beams bring the living area together.

The large kitchen contains luxury Dacor dual convection wall ovens, a Dacor six-burner gas stovetop, granite and ceramic tile countertops, dishwasher, refrigerator with icemaker and water dispenser, microwave, Keurig coffee system, along with heated floors to keep your toes toasty warm. Attached to the kitchen is a sunroom, which is the perfect place to sit and have a cup of tea or coffee and read in the morning sun. A separate exterior side entrance opens up into the mudroom, with an in-floor grate for wet boots, hooks for numerous coats and heated floors; the perfect room for gear storage and doggy hang out.

The house has three bedrooms, including a spacious master suite. The suite is separated from the rest of the house, giving it a more intimate feel. It is comprised of a romantic gas stove/fireplace, lofted wood ceilings, exposed beams and a sizeable master bath with heated towel rack. The master also includes a loft, which can sleep two adults or three children. This loft is ideal for a kid’s hideaway. The other two bedrooms are good-sized, with queen beds and plenty of storage. One of the bedrooms can serve as an office space, with antique roll-top desk, wireless printer/scanner/copier capabilities and a high-end therapeutic memory foam pullout couch/bed. There is also a full bath and a ¾ bath.

A quaint detached studio is located above the garage and can sleep four people. It has a queen-sized bed, along with a pullout couch with a comfortable queen built-in air mattress, a bathroom with shower and small eat-in kitchen. Includes remote-controlled gas stove/fireplace.

Enjoy your downtime in our outdoor spa. Relax in the 6-person hot tub or sweat off a day’s worth of activities in our 8-person custom-built sauna. When temps get too high, cool off under the outdoor shower/cold plunge. The spa is located conveniently via stairs right outside the master suite bath and also accessible from the downstairs living area. Do some outdoor cooking on the stainless steel grill or roast marshmallows at the fire pit in the yard, under the vibrant stars. There is even a tree-hung swing for the kids to play on in the large, fenced yard.

This Durango Retreat is the perfect destination for your family and group getaway!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: Hi, we're the Cupp family. We live on a lake in NE Indiana but have always had a love for Colorado and the mountains. Our daughter Brittany moved to Durango in 2003 to attend Fort Lewis College and our love for Durango began then. Since then we purchased the property and have been frequent to the area. Brittany lives in the adjoining house and manages the property.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      Durango has it all- a vibrant community based around an outdoor paradise tucked within beautiful surroundings. Because of the many living quarters and the size and serenity of the land, our property provides the best that Durango has to offer.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Besides the accommodations of the houses, the property itself is fully landscaped and in the summer month filled with flowers and fruit trees.
