DescriptionThis hidden gem is located 10 minutes from downtown Durango. Ponderosa pines welcome you as you drive up the lane to a beautiful rustic log home, situated on a small knoll, with sweeping views overlooking the Shenandoah Highlands. On the 9.62 acres, there is a large barn, a covered loafing shed and fenced pasture, ideal for horses. A detached building houses a three-car garage, with plenty of well-designed storage, a workshop, and a 365.Sq Ft. heated 2-room studio (not included in sq. ft. of home). This well-lit space is suited for a gym, yoga retreat or office. The recently replaced metal roofs on barn, garage, and home are matching deep burgundy, giving a subdued but lovely feel to the surrounding greens and browns of this country property. As you walk up to carefully tended xeric gardens, you step onto a delightful covered porch that invites you to take a seat and immerse yourself in the peaceful beauty of this property with true Colorado feeling. Entering the house, the hallway guides you to a stunning living area with hardwood floors, crafted wooden beams and vaulted ceilings. Sunshine streams through the large south facing picture windows with sprawling views of meadows and nearby mountains. During winter mornings and evenings, a cozy wood stove fireplace easily warms this large open plan living area, which includes the kitchen (with breakfast bar), dining, and family/great room making it the perfect gathering place for friends and family. The passive solar heats the upper levels of this home all winter long so you don’t have to use the propane if you prefer not to. A half bath is also located on this level. To reach the upper level, a wide beautifully crafted wooden staircase takes you to the private master suite, with high ceilings, wood beams, skylights, new carpet, a double custom vanity, a shower, and his and her closets. Double glass doors open from the master to a small internal faux balcony where you continue to see magnificent views. A large external porch (above the main level porch) leads off the master bedroom and is fully screened. During the summer this space can be used for sitting and/or sleeping, from where you will hear the tranquil sounds of the night, and wake to the morning sounds of bluebirds, jays and ravens. The downstairs level has 3 bedrooms (currently used for offices) 1 charming full bathroom, a utility area, and plenty of closet and storage space. The thoughtfully designed nooks and crannies add character and charm to this cozy comfortable delight. A lower level door leads you to a large deck and more xeric gardens. From spring to winter this property showcases the best of all seasons with majestic views, privacy and a great location close to Durango. Amazing area for wildlife.
