A quiet, comfortable retreat in the country, yet convenient to several towns, restaurants and shopping. Bright and airy with lots of trees and plenty of elbow room on 7.37 fenced acres. 3-bed, 2-bath freshened up with a remodeled kitchen, updated windows, flooring, and bathrooms and a new water heater. The shady covered porch is partially enclosed, perfect as a protected entry area, doubling as a mudroom in the winter. A large wood-burning stove makes for cozy winter mornings, and helps offset heating expenses. The separate oversized 2-car garage has a new garage door motor and an attached studio/storage room with lights, ceiling fan and baseboard heat. Newly upgraded infrastructure includes a private well, new permitted septic tank and leach field, 1/2-share of irrigation water rights with an operational gravity irrigation system in place. The pasture produces grass hay or may be grazed by your own animals, as it has a small seasonal livestock pond, or possibly lease it to a neighbor. A cute little greenhouse and gardens are waiting for your green thumb! Far from city lights, star-gazers can see the Milky Way on any clear night. 19 miles southeast of downtown Durango, just 15 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes from Bayfield and Ignacio, 15 minutes to a local winery, 15 minutes to Mercy Medical Center. Just over an hour to Wolf Creek Ski Area and the Pagosa Hot Springs, and one hour in the other direction to Purgatory Ski Resort and the Durango Hot Springs.
