Luxury is the first and last word to describe this spectacular 3,600 square foot, three bedroom, three-and-a-half bath, all suite vacation home. Endless million dollar views greet you from every window and the abundant outdoor areas that surround your home. As a bonus, there is a cozy, fully furnished loft above the detached garage which provides additional accommodations for your family or group.
Only 15 minutes from Durango-La Plata County airport, 10 minutes from downtown Durango and less than an hour’s drive for myriad outdoor adventures including Durango Mountain Resort (skiing/snowboarding), this gorgeous home is the perfect place for your next vacation. You create the ultimate dream home vacation adventure while surrounded by luxurious comfort.
Enter to two stories of options. The river rock path guides you straight to the sliding door which opens to the upstairs patio where you can watch breathtaking views of the mountains or the sun sink slowly behind magnificent peaks. Turn right into the powder room and when you turn to the left you enter the sunken living room complete with 3-sided fireplace and contemporary leather furniture. Entertainment options include an 80 inch flat screen TV that turns this room into a theater or the perfect place to watch the big game.
Continue around to the left and you’ll find the dining room which seats eight across from the Chef’s kitchen. A double oven, three burner stove, and commercial-sized refrigerator are just the beginning of what makes this kitchen every cook’s dream. Family can hang out at the breakfast bar with seating for four, while you create the perfect evening meal to refuel and revisit the day’s adventures.
The master suite includes a sliding door that opens to your private upstairs patio. Wait until you see the sunsets from here and the mountains glow in morning that gently wakes you up. The master bath is a retreat with his/hers sinks and a jetted tub to help you relax and recover from the day’s adventure.
The main patio has abundant seating, a gas BBQ and smoker (should you decide to grill your supper), a fire pit and heaters to keep the chill off in the evenings. Enjoy this 4-season patio as many Coloradan’s do. With 300+ days of sunshine, you will remember the good times had here.
The downstairs patio is accessed from the spiral wrought iron staircase and includes a hot tub, bar-like seating and access to the game room. The game room offers two sitting areas, one for relaxing with a good book or perhaps a game of chess and the other has a large flat panel TV with a leather sectional for relaxing in front of that movie you’ve not had the time to see. A championship quality pool table and a wet bar round out room which is perfect for family gatherings.
Two bedrooms open off the game room, the West Suite and the East Suite. Both feature contemporary queen sized comfort with marble shower and vanity in the west bathroom and tile and wood vanity with a shower/tub combo in the east bathroom. The detached garage offers a loft with a queen bed and sleeper sofa, microwave and its own bathroom with a shower.
Security is also as you would expect with 8-foot privacy fences, three security cameras, and a lighted, automatic gate at the driveway entrance.
Just minutes away, historic downtown Durango offers world class health spas, cinema, art gallery walks and shopping downtown, more restaurants per capita than anywhere else in the U.S., Durango Recreation Center for swimming and fitness, and a multitude of outdoor recreation.
All four seasons offer unique experiences. Have you ever seen a grove of Aspens turning gold with a backdrop of pines in the fall? Have you ever hiked a trail through a forest that opened up to spectacular mountain vistas!
Stand on the summit of 14,000 foot Mt. Eolus, Sunlight Peak, and/or Windom Peak. They are close enough to sleep in luxury, summit the mountain, relax in the ultimate of comfort and relive your accomplishment.
A nice evening out can be topped off by a horse drawn sleigh ride in the winter and one of the most famous attractions, the Durango-Silverton railroad offer endless mountain vistas in historic fashion. Bring your camera and extra memory cards.
Have you ever landed so many trout that you could feed your family supper and taken them from the river straight to your BBQ? Have you experienced the peace of cross country skiing or snow shoeing through a winter wonderland? How about renting a snow machine and exploring the snow cover forest surrounded by pines with a frosting of white? Your imagination and sense of adventure are the only limit on what is possible with your vacation home in the perfect location that can open the door to memories you will forever cherish.
