205 CR 224 Durango CO Real Estate
This is not just a home-it's a lifestyle. Drive through the pristine La Plata countryside to this energy efficient house on the hill, overlooking your very own private seasonal lake where you can watch wildlife all day long! Elk, deer, foxes, ducks, geese and birds of prey all move through this sanctuary. With a fancy chicken coop, fruit trees, tiered flower beds, mature landscaping, a fenced garden with nearby garden shed, fenced yard for pets, and a large pasture there is plenty of room for all your activities! An attached over-sized garage features a finished 375 sf loft for storage which could easily be used as a bonus room, workshop or office. Walk into the mud room, which leads to the dining area and large kitchen with ample cabinet space. The kitchen's center island and breakfast bar transitions into the spacious and bright living area overlooking your 19 acres of privacy. Enjoy the passive solar, as well as the $30K solar upgrade that saves you money off your electric bill every month! Warm up next to the gas fireplace or sip your morning coffee on the deck outside your kitchen. Blue spruce wooden ceilings are throughout the home as well as LED lighting. On the main level, you'll find the master bedroom which opens into a nicely remodeled full bathroom with jetted tub. Upstairs is a perfect office or guest quarters with a bedroom and attached half bath. Downstairs, you'll find a large finished basement heated by an additional gas stove that could be used as a den or family room. Walk out from the downstairs onto your new redwood deck with a timber frame pergola and take in the view of horses in the pasture! Down the hallway are two non-conforming bedrooms with a full bath, laundry, and utility room with off-peak appliances. Featuring a fully automated sprinkler irrigation system for the lawns and gardens, you can relax and enjoy the peaceful country living!
