2946 W 2nd Avenue Durango CO Real Estate
Charming single level cottage in quaint West Animas City neighborhood on large beautifully manicured 7500 sf lot. Homes in this area do not come on the market often. The home offers authentic hardwood floors, some vintage light fixtures, a Clark/Jewell antique oven with gas burners on the side and a claw foot cast iron tub with a shower head adding to the charm of the home. The plumbing was replaced in the house three years ago and a 50 gallon quick recovery water heater was installed in 2012. To keep the home warm and heat efficient in the winter, a wood burning stove insert was added to the fireplace in 2014. The owner has spent years developing the beautiful park-like setting that surrounds this home. It is easy to relax on the backyard brick patio under the shade of the prolific apple tree. The yard encapsulates a nice mix of lush green grass framed by an array of colorful perennial plants and some raised garden beds in the back for fresh garden to table organic eating. The final stand-out of this unique property is a quaint 20' x 20' barn with aged barn wood siding, concrete floors and a rusted tin roof. The barn has an alley entrance and is currently used for storage but probably could be converted for a small car garage if desired. A home with all these vintage features in one setting is rare to find these days.
