579 Wildcat Trail Durango CO Real Estate

Nestled on over 11 treed acres in Trapper's Crossing, this stunning territorial style home enjoys privacy and views of both the La Plata mountain range and of Lake Nighthorse. As you enter the front gate and courtyard, you are welcomed by a covered, farmhouse style front porch accented by stucco walls and a variety of perennial plantings. Upon entry into the home, you will find a spacious, open great room, with high wood ceilings and recessed lighting accenting the exposed beams. Gorgeous alder wood flooring flows throughout the home. You will find unique touches throughout, including built-in bench by the front door, art display nooks and shelving, specialty lighting, custom alder window trim and doors, two interior kiva fireplaces, an abundance of windows and French doors, and much more. The kitchen is a chef's dream with custom cabinetry incorporating a stylish hutch as well as a desk, large island with solid wood top and prep sink, high-end stainless steel appliances (Sub-Zero, Viking, Bosch), and room for everything a gourmet cook would need! The adjoining pantry, bath and laundry room with sink adds to the extensive storage and comfort in this part of the home. Outdoor space is very important in the Durango lifestyle and you will not be disappointed there is a partially covered patio with stamped concrete, stucco walls and outdoor kiva fireplace. Enjoy using the covered and screened 3-season porch with panoramic views of Lake Nighthorse, for reading, dining, or even sleeping! The comfortable and serene master bedroom suite is located at the east end of the home (look for views of the lake from this vantage point). Exposed beams in the rounded plaster ceiling showcase the fine craftsmanship of construction, and the kiva fireplace adds warmth to this retreat. There is also a French door to the back patio from the master bedroom. The attached master bath features a double vanity, custom tile countertop and oversized shower, and walk-in closet. Adjoining the master bedroom and bath is a terrific office, with 2 built-in desks and knotty alder cabinetry (and windows at each desk). The west wing of the home is where you will find 3 bedrooms and a full bath. One of the bedrooms is partially open to the great room below and is currently used as a library and game room, with built-in bookshelves and a queen-sized Murphy bed for visitors. There are many ways to utilize these bedrooms, depending on your needs. There is a hall storage closet here that has easy access to the attic storage area. The lower level is where you will find additional storage (including a simple wine room) and the oversized two car garage. Energy efficient features abound throughout including thick walls of adobe brick construction, passive solar orientation, quality wood windows and in-floor radiant heating system.
