This is one of the most beautiful properties in Sweetwater Springs! This stunning, but private Colorado home is situated on 17.5 gorgeous acres of green open fields with lush pine tree covered mountains totally surrounding the property. The home has 3 king bedrooms with each bedroom having it's own private full bathroom. Each King bedroom also has a twin roll away bed tucked away in the closet if needed. In the lower level is a 4th bedroom / roomy bunk room with a double set of bunk beds which can accommodate 4 guests. The living room and kitchen is a large open area for entertaining a large group. There are 2 full size sofas (one is a Queen sleeper sofa), and a large flat screen TV with DVD player and Direct TV programming. The living room also has a massive floor to ceiling gas / log fire place. There is an impressive 3 story tall wall of windows in the living room with one of the most scenic views you could imagine. The entire home is decorated in a Southwestern style with all brand new furnishings. The large kitchen is fully equipped to serve numerous guests. The attached eating area sits 8 at the rustic table, with an additional 4 bar stools at the kitchen bar. The entire first floor of living space is surrounded by a large enclosed deck with gates for the dogs or little children. The deck also includes a table and umbrella with several chairs for sitting and watching the wildlife and enjoying the gorgeous scenery. Wild turkeys, deer and lots of elk are often seen migrating through the property. A large propane grill is included for cooking outside on the upper deck. Going upstairs are 2 king bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and an open loft area. The loft is equipped with a large flat screen TV, a Foosball table and a queen sleeper sofa. Going outside is a brand new spa that will seat 5 adults. There is a in-ground fire pit to keep you warm on cold nights or just to cook some marshmallows with the kids. The property also includes a 1 acre fenced in run that houses our 13 free range chickens which can be accessed through the laundry room. The free range chicken eggs are available to the guests during most seasons. During the summer months there is a large raised bed vegetable / flower garden area available for the guests to use. This property is truly a one of a kind experience. Everyone, from the Direct TV installer to the spa electrician, have commented on how beautiful the property is. I know you and your family will enjoy our home and all the adventure that Durango has to offer.
