Premier picturesque property with Animas Valley views that you won't find anywhere else! Ideal location, between Durango and Purgatory Resort. Private and quiet, yet close to conveniences that you desire. Just minutes away from Trimble Hot Springs, and close to restaurants, grocery, liquor and hardware stores. You'll appreciate the year-round paved access, all the way to the home. This lovely 2.3 acre partially wooded acreage is bordered by the San Juan National Forest. Majestic valley & mountain views are enjoyed from an expansive deck that leads into the solidly built, five bedroom and four bath air-conditioned home. Enter the open, welcoming great room with dramatic picture windows for stunning mountain views. The interesting ceiling is beautifully finished in custom painted aluminum. Warm, smooth cabinetry is featured in the well designed and functional kitchen with clean lines. Just off the kitchen is the handy laundry room with built-in cabinets and access to the back yard area. Only a few steps away from the kitchen is the light and bright dining area, which could also be used as a den or family room. A graceful oak staircase from main level takes you to the loft area and a separate bedroom (or office) with a 3/4 bath. Located on the main level of the home, unmatched mountain views may be seen from the master suite. The master bath includes a spacious walk-in closet and a soaking tub with Venetian tile all around. A powder room is also on the main level. The lower level of the residence has three bedrooms, two of which have valley views. There is abundant storage with closets, more built-in cabinets and even a cool storage. On this level, there is access to an attached, single-stall, carpeted garage space/bonus room which could be a great area for work-outs. A short, covered walk leads to the expansive, heated three-car garage. One of the garage spaces, with 14' ceiling, may have room for an RV or boat. Such thought and planning went into the design and engineering of the infrastructure of this residence. You will appreciate all of the care that was taken in the process to create such an incredible, well-maintained property.
