1945 CR 203 Durango CO Real Estate

Back on the market, this unique Animas Valley home has something for everyone and is designed with the Durango lifestyle in mind. Basking on a sunny yet wooded hillside lot, the Southwest style of this beautiful home welcomes you and opens it doors to breathtaking 360 degree views of red cliffs, green valley, and mountain vastness. The house itself is stucco and wood with plenty of windows and decks to enjoy the superb setting all year-round. One enters the home to a practical and pretty tiled mudroom with hooks and benches for dropping off shoes and jackets. The ceiling of this room is open to the next level up which makes it feel part of the living area upstairs. On the entry level is also found the laundry room and closeted mechanical area, under stairs storage, full bath and nice bedroom. In addition, the garage enters to this level and as far as the garage is concerned, it is outfitted with central vacuum as is the rest of the house! Shelving, work bench, ski rack are all here with space to spare. Water softener, hot water recycling pump, instant hot water, and electric surge protection are also parts of this efficient home. The main level of the home feels expansive with 180 degree views of the Animas Valley and red cliffs of Missionary Ridge. Kitchen, informal dining area and beautiful decking enjoy southern views of Animas Mountain and Valley. Kitchen is stainless, alder and granite with wood floors. Living room looks out to the east and north including glimpses of the Needles to the north. Wood floors and built-in cabinetry add a comfortable touch to the area, and there is room for more formal dining there should you desire. Also, there is a wood stove here to warm up chilly nights. A half bath and office are located on this level, and we have included the office as one of the bedrooms because it could easily be one. Upstairs consists of a bedroom with three quarter bath and master suite with full bath. Stove pipe from living room brings heat up to the master where it is located in a corner of the room. There is all new carpet on this bedroom level and stairs. The 'big deck' is located on this level and is an extraordinary large space for entertaining or relaxing. What a spot! Outdoors on this lot is almost as interesting as inside. Owners have built two very nice storage buildings just off the paved driveway and either or both could be more finished off inside for other uses. Solar panels are located behind these buildings and they provide enough power to charge your electric car and household needs and still sell power back to LPEA! Paved driveway melts the snow and has plenty of room for parking and turning. Below the house a bit is a parking pull-out set up with electricity for your RV. The lot is nicely wooded with oak, pinion, and juniper which have been beautifully pruned for a park-like setting. The lot is at the high end of a shared driveway ant it extends to over 44 acres up to the top of the mountain and south towards the back of Animas Mountain, adjoining BLM. Trails have been established by the owners up to some points on this mountainside and are a great place for hiking with your pets off leash. Located just a few short minutes to downtown Durango, this spot has easy access to all the best things Durango has to offer. Bring your friends, your toys, your family---there is room for everything at this marvelous property!
