257 Starwood Trail Durango CO Real Estate
This charming Falls Creek mountain home takes you away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, yet is located only 15 minutes from Durango through a delightful valley. The use of wood and stone building materials gives this home a sense of harmony with the natural landscape, where wildlife passes through and serenity abounds. The front stone steps, river rock walls and redwood deck under the tall pines and aspens, bring you in to the sunny entryway of the home, which opens into the great room, including kitchen and combination living and dining areas. The tall vaulted ceilings, exposed wood beams, river rock wood-burning fireplace, and solid hardwood flooring work together to give a feeling of warmth and beauty. The spacious kitchen and breakfast nook include extensive maple cabinetry and storage, granite tile countertops, stainless steel appliances, with continuation of the wood flooring. The master suite and laundry room are conveniently located on one side of the home, off the kitchen, with quality features and more windows showcasing the views. The large redwood deck off the living room faces the western portion of the red cliffs, a stunning site to behold. An extensive remodel of the home was completed in 2000. Also located on the main level is a family room with big picture windows, the 2nd bedroom, and a 3/4 bath. Heading downstairs to the approximately 990 SF lower level (mostly finished basement) you will find another family room or flex space, an office, sauna and 3/4 bath. On this level you will access the two car garage with epoxy coated floor, and separately work shop/hobby space along with the mechanical systems of the home. Enjoy low maintenance landscaping and some elbow room with the 1 acre circular lot. Falls Creek Ranch's 840 acres of common property includes private 40-acre lake (for boating, fishing, swimming, and skating), tennis court at the base of red cliffs, horse stable and pastures, numerous trails to explore on FCR land, with access to US Forest Service lands with many more miles of trails.
