About the Property

2500 sq ft of Durango style located 10 minutes from downtown & the ski resort

This is the absolute best combination of location, views, access to activities, comfort and style.
Our newly remodeled Durango home is a great place to call home base while enjoying all Durango has to offer. The home has an open-air lodge style feel with large windows and a huge wrap around deck that includes a brand new Jacuzzi. The house & deck overlook the Animas Valley to the east where the beautiful James Ranch settles below. The orientation of the home provides outstanding red cliff sunset views. The first floor consists of the bright and airy kitchen, a large living/dining area, a comfortable office/study, a conveniently located powder room, laundry room, and a spacious master suite with full bath including an over-sized bath tub for soaking after a long day of fun. Upstairs is the guest bedroom with a comfortable queen-sized bed and lots of room for storing your clothing & gear. The other bedroom has a bunk bed consisting of a full bed on bottom and twin bed on top, plus another twin bed in here. This room connects to a super-cool bonus room! Watch movies, play video games, or just hang out in this room- perfect for kids & adults. It hosts huge bean bag chairs and a full-sized futon. Just like a cozy cave!
