195 CR 253 Durango CO Real Estate

Beautiful Animas Valley Property on Coon Creek. This 3754 SF main home and 800 SF guest house offer plenty of privacy while overlooking Coon Creek, Engineer Mountain, and Missionary Ridge to the east. This is a special setting that includes lush mature landscaping, a large fenced garden area with irrigation system and irrigation cistern, and excellent water rights out of Coon Creek and the Reid Ditch. The home, built in 1978 has been upgraded and remodeled with the most recent remodel in 2016/17 on the interior and 2018 exterior. Many species of wood were used in the house including walnut, cherry, oak, hickory, Douglas fir, and pine. This place is loaded with character and the location couldn't be better! The kitchen is the heart of this home and includes all new appliances, attractive solid oak cabinetry, quartz counters, 5 burner cooktop, double ovens, french door refrigerator, microwave, and wine cuvee. Just off the kitchen is a large formal dining room with exposed beams, interesting ceiling lines, wood floors, a wood stove, and access to the covered back deck. This home is such a special spot for entertaining friends and family with spacious areas both inside and out. From the dining room there is a step up to a formal living room with oak wood floors and views towards the creek. There is also an spacious family room/home theatre/ping pong room on the main level. Upstairs you will find the master bedroom suite complete with a very spacious office, laundry room, huge master bath with walk-in double headed shower/steam bath, Jacuzzi tub, and fireplace. Every window from the master suite has spectacular views. You could live in the walk-in closet with handmade knotty alder throughout and loads of storage. There are two additional en suite bedrooms- one upstairs and one down. An over-sized 3 car garage (one tandem) provides plenty of extra storage space. In addition, there is an exterior garden shed for tools and equipment. The exterior makeover includes attractive stone and masonry facade, all new windows, a substantial deck with concrete pavers and steel railing. The guest house is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath with a full kitchen, and an amazing deck overlooking Coon Creek and the large pond on the neighboring property. The final touches are in progress and soon to be completed. This home can fill the needs of many different lifestyles. The one acre lot lives larger with two easements in perpetuity that create a wonderful outdoor space in the heart of the Animas Valley.
