1151 Durango Road Durango CO Real Estate

Your beautiful Colorado mountain retreat awaits you on three beautiful acres, nestled among the pines and aspen trees with spectacular views. Located only 9.5 miles from downtown Durango, this is both the perfect year round residence or part time getaway. Enter the home from the wrap-around deck through the ideally located mudroom, the perfect place to shed your gear from a day of adventuring. The cozy interior is well-designed to maximize space and create an open floor plan with tiled kitchen floors, and hardwood floors throughout the living space. Vaulted tongue and groove ceilings allow for abundant natural light and picturesque views through the large windows, creating the perfect living space with a free-standing wood-burning stove for winter nights while the energy efficient ETS heating system helps keep temperatures comfortable on a regular basis. The main level also features a functional kitchen layout, full bathroom, and new Energy Star front-loading washer and dryer, while the upper level hosts a lofted bedroom with nice, natural light and large closet. The home is an environmentalist's dream with energy efficiency features throughout from the ample natural light, passive solar design, great insulation, double pane windows, efficient wood stove in the winter, and pleasant temps in the summer. Outside you will find a woodshed and large partial carport/ barn built with locally harvested/milled lumber. A trail leads from the back of the home to an overlook to settle in on the swinging bench and soak in the expansive views, or enjoy summertime weekend afternoons in the framed hammock space among the aspen trees. A natural, great-producing, spring-fed well provides plenty of water and the septic has already been pumped and inspected in May 2019 with transfer of title documents already prepared. National Forest access is nearby with great hiking, biking, and climbing areas just out the back door. No HOA dues!
