Remarks

This tranquil oasis southwest of historic downtown Durango has a little something for everyone. The 2,122 sf main home was built using sustainable, efficient, and healthy earth block construction. The four separately deeded parcels total 262.5 acres and offer 2600' of La Plata River frontage. When you walk up to the front door of the main house, you will be greeted by a beautiful archway and covered bench seat, and as soon as you enter the home, your attention will immediately be drawn to the stunning Mexican Boveda ceiling. Walking down the hall to the living area, you'll notice the abundance of storage in the hallway closets, all with very unique, custom saguaro and wood doors. As you make your way down the hallway, you'll pass a very large office that could be used as an additional bedroom. Just past the office is a formal, solarium style dining room with large windows and doors that allow you to bring the outside in, and overhead skylights only add to the abundance of natural light in this room. Just steps away from the dining room is the large living room with cathedral ceilings, a clean burning kiva fireplace with a Rumsford insert for heat radiation, an abundance of windows that allows natural light to flood the room, and built-in banco seating. The gourmet kitchen is sure to please any chef with top of the line stainless steel appliances, beautiful tile counter tops, custom cabinetry, and a cozy breakfast nook that overlooks the river. The master suite is just as exquisite as the rest of the home. The bedroom has cherry wood floors, a walk-thru closet, and views of the river, while the bath has slip resistant tile flooring, tiled walls, a soaking tub, and glass block enclosed shower. The custom features throughout the home are endless and include Saltillo tile flooring, reclaimed Douglas Fir beams in many of the rooms, custom doors, wood work, cabinetry, and much, much more. There are three covered patios placed around the house to take advantage of the sun or shade at different times of the year. All have built-in banco seating, and one has a built-in kiva fireplace so it can be enjoyed during all seasons. If you have frequent guests or extended family, there is a separate 2 BR, 2 BA guest home that was built in 2009 to the same standard as the main home, and with the same efficient, sustainable, and healthy earth block construction. Both homes are of equal quality and have floor plans that would be conducive to full time living. They are located on the bosque portion of the property where water is abundant with a strong well, multiple ponds, and the La Plata River flowing by. For those interested in maintaining livestock on the property, there are multiple pastures throughout the property including the upper pasture which offers in your face views of the La Plata Mountains. Included with the property are seasonal irrigation shares of the Big Stick Ditch (80 shares), HH Ditch (65 shares), and the Slade Ditch Company (5 shares). For horse lovers, there is a beautiful four stall stable with tack room and fenced corral just steps away from the main home. For the bird lover, there is a large aviary, and for the gardener, there is a mature garden with many perennials, fruit trees, evergreen trees, and more. There is even a custom built gardeners/tool shed adjacent to the lush garden area that is the perfect place to store all of your toys and tools. There is also no shortage of wildlife on this property including deer, wild turkeys, foxes, coyotes, and even the occasional bear. If you're a homebody, there are plenty of fine features for you to enjoy in the main home. This is truly a special property that should not be overlooked for those buyers who are looking for a private, yet easily accessible location with a special home to call their own.
