6 Hilltop Durango CO Real Estate
This in-town Durango home is like nothing you've ever seen before! Situated on over an acre at the end of a private cul-de-sac with views in every direction and overlooking the campus of Durango's most desirable elementary school, this location simply cannot be beat. This nearly 10,000 sf home boasts convenient single-level living with the living room, formaldining room, large kitchen, and spacious master suite all on the main level, each room offering La Plata Mountain or Animas Valley views. As you enter the home, you will immediately notice the massive floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace that is the centerpiece of the living room. The wall of windows in the living room captures spectacular views of the La Platas in the distance, and also offers views to the north of the Animas Valley. Just off the living room is a spacious dining room, and beyond that is an immense kitchen which includes a center island and additional breakfast nook. Also located on the main level is the master suite, which features a wood fireplace with gas starter in the bedroom with a flagstone surround and concrete hearth, his and hers closets, an oversize walk-in shower plus separate tub, a dual vanity, and built-in dresser drawers for added convenience. The main level is rounded out with a guest bedroom and bathroom as well as a comfortable home office. The lower level is perfect for your largest gatherings with another wood burning fireplace with gas starter in the family room plus a solid Oak bar where all of your friends will want to gather to tell stories while enjoying their favorite beverage. The family room walks out to a lower level covered patio which can be enjoyed during the warmer months and also offers views of the La Platas. This level has additional bedrooms as well as another home office area, a bathroom, and two separate storage areas that are perfect for your collectibles and other toys or gear. Down the hallway, you will find a room that would make the perfect home gym, billiards room, or rec room. Through this room is a stairway that leads you down to the indoor heated pool. This is surely one of Durango's finest indoor pools, even better than those that you would find in some hotels! The pool has been meticulously maintained over the years, and the pool deck was recently updated with natural stone tile. This room is filled with sun year round by the multiple skylights, windows, and sliding doors that give you immediate access to a large patio area. There is yet another bedroom and bath with a window that overlooks the pool area. In addition to all this home has to offer on the inside, the exterior is equally as impressive. There are multiple decks and patios that surround this home, all giving you the opportunity to take advantage of the sun or shade depending on the time of day. The large yard is completely fenced and is the perfect place for kids and pets to play. There is also plenty of room for your cars with an attached 3 car garage as well as a separate garden shed. There are two additional sheds in the back of the home that could be used as storage or as shelter for your furry friends. This is truly a unique property with nothing else like it in Durango, and at just over $200/sf, it is far below replacement cost!
