This stylish contemporary mountain home has a fabulous private setting in the Ponderosa pines of Rafter J subdivision, which is located only 15 minutes to downtown Durango or Lake Nighthorse. Walls of windows and tall ceilings in the open great room bring in light and views of the surrounding mountains. Built in 2008 and remodeled in 2018, this home is updated and in excellent condition. The main level consists of the living, dining, and kitchen areas plus a bedroom and bath. Tall glass windows and doors open to a gorgeous wrap-around deck, perfect for enjoying sunsets with La Plata Mountain views. Each level has a bedroom and bathroom for flexibility and privacy. The primary bedroom suite is upstairs with its own balcony (perfect for morning coffee or to watch the sunsets), walk-in closet, and full bathroom, and the adjacent room, currently used as an office, could also work well as a nursery or meditation room. The upstairs level also includes a loft/office area with a picture-perfect view of the La Plata mountains. The lower level includes the third bedroom and full bathroom, which easily functions as private guest quarters with media room and separate entrance. Storage space is plentiful including a pantry next to the kitchen and a huge laundry, mechanical and storage room on the lower level. Environmentally friendly materials have been integrated throughout the home including bamboo flooring, premium Kolbe double pane windows and doors, stainless steel energy efficient appliances, no VOC Paint, energy efficient air exchange system, tankless hot water, and more (see Green Remarks for details). Radiant flooring on all 3 levels keep the home warm in the winter, and the gas log fireplace in the great room also heats the room quickly with a built-in blower. Central vacuum is also found on all 3 levels of the home. Design details also include Hubbardton Forge handmade light fixtures and recessed LED lighting. The remodel of the home in 2018 included new siding, stone, stucco, granite counter tops, and lighting, and the decks were replaced with a heat treated White Ash that can be oiled once a year to maintain the color or let fade to a natural silver gray, which is an amazing product that has a fire rating as high as Trex). The exterior offers low-maintenance natural landscaping and the property has been fire mitigated, and there is even a Generac generator installed for backup if needed. There is plenty of space to park a camper or boat, and the detached garage offers space for a vehicle and all your gear. This versatile home has been occasionally offered as a vacation rental so you have all kinds of options for enjoying the lifestyle of this property. Furnishings are not included but are negotiable.
