Property Details

Needles Townhomes are located about 25 minutes from downtown Durango and approximately five minutes from Purgatory Ski Resort. To many, this home is truly turn-key and ready to enjoy, due to the current owner's thoughtful and thorough upgrades and improvements. A unique feature of this home is a result of the home being located at the rear of the development; the view from the back of the home is of a wooded area, where a seasonal creek runs along the western edge of the property, creating mountain ambience for enjoyment from the rear deck, living room and dining room. This three bedroom, three bath, town home was remodeled in 2009, with numerous upgrades to decor and mechanical systems. Additional upgrades include granite and tile work throughout the home, new furniture in bedrooms and dining room. Kitchen appliances and all plumbing fixtures have been upgraded, and the new GE Profile(tm) dishwasher was replaced in 2020. The current owner has continually made improvements to the home including recent remodel of the ensuite primary bath, and the efficient hot water heater was installed along with new washer and dryer in 2019. The energy efficient thermal energy and storing (ETS) heating system helps to improve comfort and reduce heating costs. Other recent improvements are a new roof in 2019 (all Needles buildings) and the skylight of this home was replaced in 2022. The spacious master suite on the level two includes ensuite bath, private balcony, vaulted ceiling, and ceiling fan. Also upstairs, bedroom two includes ensuite, private bath. The third bedroom, on the ground level, is adjacent to a full bath that also serves as the powder room. The community hot tub was replaced in the last few years, and there are common picnic areas and open spaces within the development. The metal roofing was replaced on the whole development in 2019. Needles Townhomes is well-maintained due in part to the pro-active Homeowners Association, plus a full-time, on-site Property Manager that takes care of snow removal in winter and maintenance of the property year-round. The on-site manager can also provide regular walk-thru checks, on request, for absentee homeowners. This lovely town home is currently rented for short-term, vacation rental income. See information and rental projection from Vacation Rental Collective (VRC).
