About the Property

1 Queen BR and 1 Queen Murphy Bed in Large Living Room, 1 Bath

Permit # 14-026
News Flash! April 2017; ; We just installed a new Queen Murhpy Bed in the Living Room so you can have that be your main bedroom!
Also new Kitchen Cabinet, Bosche dishwasher and GE stacking washer dryer!
The Julia Rose is named after our middle daughter and the beautiful Pink Rose bushes in the front and back yard. Built in 1898, this Victorian origin home has recently been updated with some more contemporary elements and has a nice blend of old with the new. There is a remodeled kitchen and bath and newly finished wood flooring, paint, window coverings and furnishings.
The Living Room is the largest area in the home and has a Queen Murphy Bed and seating and a separate desk area.
The Kitchen has a granite counter with a counter height table that seats four. The kitchen is fully furnished so you can create anything from a gourmet dinner to a smoothie.
The bedroom adjoins the bathroom and is European style (small) but cozy and comfortable with a brand new Queen plush mattress and designer bedding and duvet cover. There is a closet and dresser.
The Bathroom is tiled with a shower/tub so you can soak and relax after a long day out. The view from the tub is like being in a 'secret garden'.

PLEASE NOTE; The bathroom is very small and guests have to walk through the bedroom to get to the bathroom. Guests who weigh more than 250 lbs. or more or have difficulties with moving around please be forewarned that The Julia Rose may not be a good fit for you.

The duplex neighbors on the East side of the property have dedicated use of the front porch. The Julia Rose has her own back patio with a grill and outdoor furniture to relax in privacy and comfort. The entrances are separate. The long term tenants are carefully screened, who are quiet non-smokers. There is extra sound insulation between the two units.
There is space for one car in the parking lot with a back and front door entrance if you prefer to park in the street. The flat screen TV is brand new and features a DVD player and we provide cable and WiFi. This house is in the prime downtown location in a quiet historic neighborhood off of the busy Third Avenue. Main Street is three blocks away and you will be right in the center of all of the restaurants and downtown coffee shops and shopping.
Upon arrival, you will enter the house with a coded lock and grab the key for the back door, The front door is closer to unpacking and unloading and the back door is closer to the off the street parking.
You can settle in by having a cool drink on the back patio or walking a few blocks to Main Avenue to relax at one of the coffee shops or brewpubs.
Please note this is a non-smoking unit, which includes marijuana smoking. We are very strict with our non-smoking policy.
Pets are welcome but not on the furniture. Excessive hair on furniture will result in loss of some of the damage deposit to pay for additional cleaning.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1983

About: I moved to Durango when I was 19 (1978!) and never left. My four children were born and raised here and I am so grateful to call Durango my home. I own Fusion Interiors, a full service interior design business. I get out as much as possible to hike, bike, ski, run rivers and roam in the desert. I can answer all of your questions about great trails and places to be in this lovely area.

Why Durango, CO, USA:
We like this property because of its location in old town Durango and its proximity to everything Durango Downtown. Even though it is downtown the street is surprisingly quiet and full of friendly neighbors.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, location, location! We love the newly remodeled Kitchen with Dishwasher and stacking washer dryer, wood floors, the Rainbow Travertine Kitchen counter, the private backyard relaxing area with vintage rose bushes that bloom pink and the fenced in back patio with room for a pet.
