About the Property

Gorgeous Mountain Views - Breath Taking Sunsets

Built by respected log home builder - Larry Barnes - this wonderful Colorado custom log home enjoys peace and tranquility with majestic La Plata Mountain Views. Driving up to the house with its Silverton Eureka Rock driveway easily accommodates multiple cars and convenient in-and-out access. This great Colorado log home is located minutes to shopping/restaurants in Historic Downtown Durango as well as 3 major ski areas. Walk up the slate-tiled steps to the covered porch and enter this lovely home through the double glass doors. The home immediately opens to a huge western facing bay of windows in the living/dining room perfectly positioned to take in the grand mountain views. Located to the left of the entryway is the kitchen equipped with granite tile countertops, slate tile floors and stainless steel appliances. Birch cabinets and drawers filled with everything you will need to make your vacation feel like home. A breakfast bar for 3-4 people is made from a large piece of dimension lumber which further enriches the log home feel. A spiral staircase leads up to the loft area which looks out over the living/dining area and enjoys the same massive bay windows as the living room. This room has a queen futon. The living/dining room's high vaulted ceiling is complimented by solid log cross beams. A two-sided wood burning fireplace with river rock surround offers the romantic ambiance of an evening fire to both the living room and the master suite. An elk antler chandelier overhanging the dining area adds a touch of Colorado flair. The master suite has its own patio access and a master bathroom that will surely satisfy. An oversized Jacuzzi tub sits in the corner of the room supported by a travertine surround. Relax in a warm jet bath and enjoy the mount views through the window next to the tub! The bathroom also has a walk-in shower with travertine tile and dual sinks with stylish oval vanity mirrors. Don't forget about the dual-sided fireplace to keep you warm on those colder evenings!

For convenience, a laundry room with washer & dryer is suitably located adjacent to the master suite and the living room. Extreme La Plata Mountain views will be enjoyed from this spacious concrete patio spanning the width of the home. This area will produce many memorable barbeques with friends and family. Canned overhead lighting is fixed into the exterior eaves and provides a nice lighting element for the evening time. Privately located on the other side of the home, the 2nd master suite with a full walk-thru bathroom and individual access to the patio. This 2nd suite offers a full bathtub and shower complimented by a glass block wall at the far end of the tub. This home comfortably sleeps 6. There is a 1-car garage at the top of the driveway to park a small vehicle, ATV or any other entertainment equipment. This home is located on 5 acres with beautiful mountain views and breathtaking sunsets! CO Sales Tax ID #26868580-0000

Travelers will enjoy being so close to Durango (airport only 10 minutes away) and all that it has to offer but having the comforts of home to stay at will be the best of all. A must do is the train ride from Durango to Silverton in the spring/summer and skiing at one of the three major ski areas nearby Durango Mountain Resort/Wolf Creek/Silverton.
