190 Lower Road Durango CO Real Estate
Country charm located less than 15 minutes from downtown Durango and just 5 miles from recreation opportunities on the beautiful Lake Nighthorse! Enjoy privacy in the pines on this secluded 8 acre property with a meticulously maintained home, 3-car garage with workshop and bunk guesthouse above, and barn with hay storage, loafing shed, and tack room. Two separate pastures of approximately 3 acres each line either side of the driveway entrance, fenced to offer plenty of space for horses to roam. The home itself offers a rustic Colorado style with a log exterior and stone chimney, and decks providing the perfect place to unwind, either on the partially covered summer daytime porch, or the south deck where you can enjoy the evening under the stars. The home's interior is welcoming with hickory hardwood flooring, warm wood accents and beams, river rock fireplace, peek-a-boo views of the La Plata Mountains, and large south-facing windows overlooking an enclosed greenhouse sunroom offering passive solar heating. The charming country kitchen has a new electric range/oven and an adjacent walk-in pantry for extra storage or potential kitchen expansion, and flows into the open dining and living areas. A powder room, laundry room with utility sink, and den/library space with built-in bookcases with access to the partially covered porch complete this main level. The upper level hosts a large master suite, comprising two of the original bedrooms, with a loft space above the bed, sitting area, A/C mini split, and en-suite bath with a walk-in shower and double sink vanity. This could be a simple conversion back to two separate bedrooms if desired. The other bedroom is spacious with an adjacent full bath with a claw-foot soaking tub and separate shower. The home also has a full-height basement with plentiful storage space and a darkroom with utility sink for any photography enthusiasts. The bunkhouse is perfect for extended family and friends! The large living area carries the same warm, Colorado home feel with vaulted ceilings, wood accents, and wood-burning stove. Your guests will have everything they need with the kitchenette, private bedroom, full bath, and generously sized loft above, offering space for everyone. Other features of the property include a brand new 2021 central water line directly from Lake Durango, high speed internet from Cedar Networks, a new furnace, and 3-year old energy efficient on-demand hot water heater. Furnishings with some exceptions are negotiable. Located just outside of the entrance to the Rafter J neighborhood, this property is not subject to an HOA nor HOA dues, and creates the perfect opportunity for a full-time residence or vacation home getaway.
