*Whether you love the mountains and the snow, or are looking for a summer get-a-way, make sure you see this gem! 21 miles from Downtown Durango, pride of ownership is obvious everywhere you turn. Slate flooring welcomes you at the front foyer and continues through the kitchen and halls. The wall of windows in the great room is stunning, with welcoming views of the property, trees and nearby mountains. These windows are tinted (some with Sun-Glow film) to protect furnishings, etc. Freshly refinished hardwood floors, river rock fireplace and towering ceilings compliment the living and dining areas. You will enjoy the easy, open kitchen with granite countertops. Be sure to notice the two large pantries. Also on this floor are two bedrooms (currently used as office/craft rooms), a full bath and laundry. A covered side porch off the great room leads to a large deck and access to the private, park-like grounds already mitigated for forest fire. From the deck you can see multiple established perennial gardens and all with river rock borders. Listen to the meandering creek that flows past the house, connecting small fish ponds to gardens of wildflowers. ** Upstairs is a sumptuous master suite with architectural lines, over-sized closet space and a yummy tiled bathroom with soaking tub and roomy shower. TV in custom nook on the pot shelf is included. **The lower level "Guest Quarters" could be used as an in-law setup. The outside entry leads into a lovely slate floored mudroom (with a surprise for dog lovers). The spacious family room is light and airy and can hold two Queen airbeds when company comes en masse. A beautiful bath with huge tiled shower and a small galley kitchen lead you to a large bedroom that could multi-task as an exercise, yoga or meditation room until the Murphy Bed is lowered for use. An extensive storage area with another w/d hookup completes this level. **The storage barn has tons of room for tools, equipment and toys and one end is sectioned off as a garden shed. The attached full-length carport will cover two vehicles. Most of the property is enclosed with lock-down field fencing, not barbed wire. Outside the fence, the property follows the road, edges wetlands and crosses a meadow containing a pond-oasis loved by wildlife and birds. Year round recreational opportunities include wildlife watching, hiking and rock climbing, horseback riding, snowmobiling/dog sledding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the National Forest and kite-skiing, fishing and kayaking on the lake. **Since this is one of four lots in the subdivision with the ability to have commercial usage, a home business is a possibility.
