Property Details

Beautiful country 3 bedroom 3 bath home with mountain charm and artistic touches throughout on 3.9 private wooded acres. With an easy 15minute drive to Durango via paved and maintained roads, this property is also only 10 minutes away from Lake Nighthorse, 2 miles from the Hesperus ski slope, and central to other towns in the 4 Corners. With no HOA or covenants, you are free to use the property as you wish. It would make a great horse property. Additionally, there is small unattached cabin with a loft that has potential for an Airbnb, a separate sturdy shed, and an outbuilding that could be converted into horse stables. Going into the home you enter a hallway with two hexagonal windows. The first bedroom suite to the right has a large bathroom with hand crafted cabinets and doors and copper touches. Moving farther inside you will come to the great room featuring a soaring vaulted ceiling and tongue and groove custom woodwork. An airtight wood stove backed with copper wallboard and copper accents provides steady heat. Built-in log shelving on three sides of the great room completes the ambiance of country charm. Sliding patio doors open onto a deck perfect for outdoor grilling and entertaining or just relaxing and enjoying the spectacular scenery of the La Plata Mountains. The open concept kitchen/living/dining is accentuated by an abundance of custom crafted cabinets, solid surface countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a breakfast bar with handcrafted stools. The large dining area highlights a unique fireplace accented by a copper stove pipe and hearth. Past the kitchen, a hallway leads to two large bedrooms. The master suite is by a stained glass window and has a spacious closet. A latched double glass door provides natural light, and abundant flora and leads outside to a private area. The master bath has a claw foot tub, a vintage pull to flush the toilet, and a large window providing ample light and forest views. The bedroom opposite the master suite has a high ceiling and three large windows that bring the beauty of the outside in. A full vintage 1950 era bathroom on the opposite side of this bedroom serves as the third bath. Down the hallway, there is a recessed area for the washer and dryer and on the other side is the furnace room with a new hot water heater. At the end of the hall is a large room with a hot tub. This room can be used for an office or an exercise room. Continuing back outside, a car enthusiast will love the huge barn-wood sided 609 sq ft detached garage with plenty of room for a workshop and all of your toys and large equipment. Above the garage, there is a loft that would be perfect for an exercise room, an art studio, or for extra storage. There is plenty of room for your RV in the oversized carport attached to the garage. The circular drive provides easy in and out. If you are looking for a special home replete with artistic touches, this home is a must see.
