680 Golden Dipper Durango CO Real Estate
Not all homes are built the same. This home was crafted with the finest finishes and custom touches throughout, and has been meticulously maintained over the years. The curb appeal of this property will immediately grab your attention, whether it be the perfect blend of stucco, stone, and cedar, or the artfully designed landscaping with several well established trees, shrubs, and flowers that are a delight all spring, summer, and fall. Upon entering the home, you will immediately notice the multiple hand hewn, reclaimed Douglas fir posts and beams that are the true focal point of this home. The chef's kitchen will make meal preparations a true pleasure. From the elegant slab granite countertops, to the custom alder cabinetry and GE Profile appliances with alder fronts, the kitchen is sure to be the preferred gathering place for all family meals and special occasions. Summer, or even year round grilling, is made possible by the covered deck that enjoys direct access from the kitchen making all of your outdoor cooking a breeze. Beyond the covered deck is a secluded courtyard with spa that is perfect for relaxing evenings and year round stargazing. Just off of the kitchen is a large dining room that showcases the true craftsmanship that is on display throughout this home. The Douglas fir posts and beams set this area off, as does the tongue and groove ceiling, making you feel that you are in a private dining area, but still leaving you only steps away from the kitchen. On the other side of the dining room is the living room which features vaulted ceilings, a gas fireplace with a stacked stone surround, and a wall of windows that includes sliding glass doors that lead you out onto one of the many outdoor living spaces that this home has to offer. Just off of the living room is a home office, and rounding out the main level living spaces is the master suite. This room also features vaulted ceilings, a second gas fireplace, also with a stone surround, and a luxurious bath that includes a jetted tub, separate walk-in shower, dual vanities, a walk-in closet, and direct access to a cozy, gated garden area. The lower level of the home features another living area which includes a wet bar with a bar size refrigerator and microwave, a second en suite plus a third bedroom, and access to the lower level patio and beautifully manicured grass lawn. The cherry on top for this incredible home is the 1,300 sf rec/bonus room. The options for this room are limitless. The room is currently used as a game room with a projector and projection screen, ping pong and air hockey tables as well as a climbing wall, but other uses could include a home gym, home theater, workshop, or the space could even be converted to a home office space if needed. Additional extras of this home include a heated 3-car garage with floor drains, abundant storage in the fully accessible 850 sf attic above the garage which is fully insulated and has multiple outlets making it easy to use as a hobby room, in-floor heat with a high efficiency boiler, custom sound system and alarm system, a top of the line roof ice melt system, and so much more. Homes with this level of quality throughout are a rare find, and being located within the Edgemont Ranch subdivision which gives you access to several miles of soft surface trails, tennis courts, a playground, and private fishing rights on the Florida River makes this home all that much more desirable.
