935 Mountain Memories Durango CO Real Estate
This iconic estate makes the dream of Colorado come to a reality with 360 degree mountain top views and bordered on two sides by the 13,442 acre Perrins Peak Wildlife Area. The wildlife area is restricted to only hiking, horseback riding, and hunting during the season, making it feel like owning massive acreage, while only paying taxes on the 75 acres. This property also has Junction Creek frontage and is adjacent to tens of thousands of National Forest acreage, while less than 1.5 miles from the 486 mile Colorado Trail that runs to Denver. The over 50 gpm well is tapped into an aquifer that was tested to yield premium quality water. Minutes to downtown Durango, this property has it all and is perfect for someone wanting ultimate privacy with easy access to Durango's long list of events. The main house is a 5708 sq ft Timberframe constructed with 34,000 board feet of oak, 3 bed/4.5 bath (could easily be 5 bedrooms), great room with a 32' vaulted hammer beam cathedral ceiling, and a massive moss rock fireplace with a bar. The engineered design and impeccable construction was documented from beginning to end. The main house also has a 1000 square foot 3-door garage, mechanical room, hydronic solar system, security system, Finnish Sauna, workout room, hydronic in-floor heating, AC, and Brazilian Teak outdoor decking. From the custom quarter sawn oak cabinets and granite countertops throughout, solid oak interior doors, class V Italian tile, and slate, the attention to detail is second to none. This property is also complete with an expansive equine set-up. The radiant tube-heated barn with its own security system and concrete slab floor has two oversized overhead doors at opposite ends for easy ingress/egress. It also has a separate tack room with half bath, a workshop area w/50 amp welding port, and a 13'x16' southern exposure run-in for graining and 24 hour access to a Nelson automatic waterer. There is a large loafing shed for hay and equipment storage, ~35 fenced acres , and an arena. A vaulted ceiling 2 bedroom/1 bath apartment is above the barn that currently brings in revenue as a VRBO, but would also serve as great quarters for a caretaker, Creating this legacy property was very complex, and we encourage any interested brokers and buyers to reach out directly in order to receive all associated information.
