Just the country home you've been waiting for! Lovely setting on 9+ acres with south facing views and sunshine, views of the La Platas, lots of useable outdoor space, a huge shop, and a home full of charm and character. Designed with space and functionality in mind, this 4-bedroom home offers plenty of functional space with the living, dining, kitchen, laundry and an expansive deck on the second level, perfect for taking in the sunshine from the south facing views. The living room features the most beautiful brick surround with a Vermont wood burning for those chilly February nights and lots of natural light through the windows. Large kitchen with plenty of cabinet space, open to the dining room, and an adjacent den or office space. Upstairs in the home are all four bedrooms, a hall bath with two vanities, and multiple storage closets for linens. The primary bedroom has it's own private bath, two closets, plus a ladder to a perfect spot for a craft room, office, storage, or a place to relax and look out to the stars. The walk out basement and garage offer more storage, a sunroom, workshop with shelving, and a plenty of room for toys and a car in the garage. Quite possibly the best feature of the entire property is the huge shop, 40x40 with concrete floors, huge attic space with more storage, and the perfect spot for a home-based business, working on cars, boat storage, or just a great place to spread out your projects. A couple of extra outbuildings provide more storage on the property, a place for animals to sleep, or a playhouse. The property slopes to the north, covered in nice pinons and phenomenal views looking NW to the La Platas, while also offering dry pasture in the front south side of the property. The septic system was recently redone, ready for transfer. This home is conveniently located only a few miles to Bayfield, Mercy, Walmart, and Durango. This property has huge potential for someone who works from home with multiple office set ups, the hobbyist looking for the shop space, the outdoor enthusiast that likes their space and privacy, the gardener looking for a spot for a greenhouse, or the 4-Her who wants to add some animals to their mini farm. The home was built in the 1980s, but the property has some wonderful history and charm, being a stagecoach stop at the well house in the 1920s and 30s. No HOA, no covenants, come and enjoy your freedom on this beautiful piece of land, spacious shop, and charming home.
