About the Property
'Optional Guest House' 5 minutes to Durango! 15 minutes to DMR
Breathtaking Animas Valley views from inside the home and its decks. Start your day with a steaming cup of brew overlooking the beauty of the valley. Since the home is just 5 minutes from downtown Durango, you can spend your days exploring Durango (take the Trolley into town, ride our bicycles); or hike our 42 wooded acres.
When evening comes, you can kick back on the expansive decks or in the hot tub, in awe of the breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views of the Animas Valley, Red Cliffs and the Needles Mountains. Enjoy the romance of the steam train as it chugs by in the distance, with the mountains as your backdrop.
This amazing open floor plan is perfect for 8 people in the main house with 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, and 3 fireplaces, and baseboard heating (five-zones so everyone is happy). Lets not forget the Hot Tub with incredible mountain views. The Master bedroom boast its own private deck and gas fireplace! Also the 2nd Master bedroom on the main level has its own fireplace, patio and private entrance! The furniture, and all furnishing in our home are new or less than 4 yrs. old. There is a new full bath (12/13) on the main level and 1/2 bath that has just been remodeled.
We know you and your family/guests will enjoy the vaulted ceilings, wire brushed knotty pine doors, hardwood floors, complete sound system, temperature controlled wine cooler and all the amenities (even a high efficiency washer and dryer) . For our winter guests, our 2 car garage is heated.
Those 42 acres back up to 1275 acres of BLM land, and if you’re into rock climbing, they include elevation changes of 1,000 feet with some sheer rock faces. If that isn’t enough, we’ve equipped our home with adult and children’s bicycles, and tubes. Bring your helmets and life jackets please (required!). You can also enjoy family game night with an Foosball table, Air Hockey table, Ping pong table, poker table top and many other games.
Be prepared to enjoy every aspect of Durango from this perfect location! .

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: My first trip to Durango was in 1994, and fell in love with it. I returned every year for a week, and in the summer of 2011 my family and I stayed for 3 weeks. I decided to purchase a home here in February 2012 . We wanted the views, the mountains, land to hike and explore on, and Durango's downtown spirit. Luckly we found it! Durango and our home provide all the things we love to do, in one beautiful area; hiking, skiing, fishing, mountain biking, white water rafting, soaring, great restaurants, children's activities, great music, and least we forget the Steam Train.
