961 E 4th Avenue Durango CO Real Estate

This residence offers a rare and wonderful craftsman home in the most sought after and ideal downtown Durango location. If you have a local's insight into Durango, or have painstakingly researched the optimal location in the historic neighborhood adjacent to one of the most walkable and desirable small towns in America, you'd undoubtedly focus your attention on this specific block segment, and even this side of that specific block. This historic 1916 residence was thoughtfully renovated and modernized by an award winning local architect/contractor circa 2000, and upgraded again in 2017. It features 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths (2769 SF/assessor), including a master suite on the first floor. The current owners have updated the kitchen with new appliances, travertine flooring and leathered granite countertops, in addition to adding a roof top deck with mountain views (hence the best side of the block with the best views available to your yard and deck spaces). The front entry has an old world feel, with antique paned glass sunroom windows, living room with functioning fireplace and a large, open dining room. A series of backyard decks/patios surrounded by beautiful gardens is only surpassed by the spacious, elevated front porch overlooking 4th Ave. The modern den has stained concrete with in floor heating; the rest of the home features hardwood or tile flooring, with radiant hot water heating throughout. The upper level boasts 3 bedrooms, reading nook and a full bath. A large, functional basement provides plenty of extra storage. The home has its own front driveway with 3 parking spaces, and another 4+ parking spaces off the alley. There is room for a garage/carport, or possible ADU with city approval. Walk three short blocks and you're on Main Street in downtown Durango. This home is large enough for a family but also perfect for a couple desiring a guest room and home office spaces. The property combines the charm of the old with the convenience of modern upgrades and fixtures.
