Year Purchased: 2011
About: We live in Albuquerque but love to travel and Durango is so close and beautiful! We especially love it for all the outdoors activities we can do here: fishing, hiking, river walk, rafting/inter-tubing, skiing/snowboarding, golf and of course shopping!
Why 3rd Avenue Condos: We bought this place because we LOVE Durango, have been coming here for years and can't wait to live here full time. For now we have a place to come that has many wonderful features we were looking for. It's right downtown, yet really quiet. It's a 3.5 hour drive from Albuquerque, which means we can come on the weekend no problem.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Location! Walk to downtown restaurants and attactions, easy drive to ski hill (DMR) covered/underground parking garage for protection in the winter, and fully furnished down to every creature comfort! We love sitting in the sun with our coffee out on the deck in the morning.
