1015 County Road 201 Durango CO Real Estate
Looking for panoramic mountain and valley views, private location adjoining National Forest, and paved, county maintained access with no HOA? Look no further. This custom Timberframe home has all this and so much more. This warm and inviting mountain home with separate two bedroom guest house (on the lightly traveled road to the Hermosa Creek trailhead) was designed by Kevin Reed and built by Tom Gorton for these owners as their Durango retreat. The exterior of the home is low-maintenance stucco with log and stone accents, and the metal roof is practical and low maintenance. Enter from the covered porch (facing Hermosa mountain) through the custom solid wood entry door (with screened sidelights), into a dramatic open great room full of light, space and views. Clerestory windows above bring the outside in, and the wood beams through this space are a focal point in the style and design of this home. The kitchen is large, with beautiful slab granite countertops and butcher block kitchen island. There is plenty of room for family gatherings and for entertaining, with seating around the bar as well as in the dining area (which captures the views into Durango). Additional features of this wonderful room include wood-burning fireplace (w/gas lighter), built-in window seats with storage, built-in bookshelves and pot shelving, ceiling fans, and access to the circular concrete patio on the east side, and the covered deck on the west side by the kitchen. A separate tiled hallway off the great room leads to the den/office and separate powder room/second bath with shower (good for guests), laundry room, and leads to the private master suite wing of the home, which includes its own deck, recessed lighting, incredible views to wake up to, roomy walk-in closet, and five-piece master bath with dual vanity, separate tub, shower and water closet. Downstairs you will find two pleasant bedrooms and a full bath. The size of the main house is 3,038 SF and the separate guest house is 974 SF. The two bedroom, 2 bath guest house is charming and delightful, with spacious open living/dining/kitchen area and covered front porch to take in the gorgeous setting. Be careful, your guests might not want to leave! Other features of this home include radiant in-floor heat, large mud room between the garage and the main part of the house (great for jackets and recreational gear), and oversized two car garage. Hermosa Creek is only a few feet from the property line on the south, and the adjacent National Forest property provides assurance there will be no additional development on the west side. This is a gorgeous home in a very special setting. Schedule your private tour today!
