189 County Road 253 Missionary Ridge Durango CO Real Estate
ESTATE SALE. Rare north Animas Valley home and property being offered after twenty eight years of ownership. This 1.8 acre lot offers serene end of the road privacy with views of Engineer mountain and red cliffs to the north. With no covenants, this home would make a great vacation rental. The home has been well maintained through the years with a new roof last summer, fresh exterior paint three years ago. Upon entry off the south patio doors you enter the dining area and gaze into an open floorplan beginning with the tall wall of angled windows in the living room that look out into the lightly forested surroundings showcasing serene mountain and red cliff views. The kitchen also adjoins these areas. Down the hall there are three bedrooms and a full bath on the main level. The large master bedroom resides upstairs with a glass peninsula gas fireplace separating the master bath which includes a separate jetted tub and free standing shower. The walk-in closet can be accessed beyond the bath area. Engineer Mountain can be seen to the north and a relaxing hot tub lies off the deck to the south. The two car garage is on the ground level. Inside the door you can access a versatile large private bonus room with a 3/4 bath that can be locked off from the rest of the house if desired. In-floor heat is available on the lower level of the home with hot water baseboard heat being offered on the other levels. The outside grounds of this relatively flat 1.8 acre property at the end of the road is tucked away amidst a gentle mix of pines and oak trees, gardens, a charming firepit surrounded by natural log benches and even a basketball court and hoop for group activities. A new septic tank was recently installed and a septic transfer permit has been approved from San Juan Basin Health The south side of the property is bordered by National Forest giving access to thousands of acres of hiking, camping, fishing and breathtaking views. There is also a five foot access easement in place to Coon Creek. This is indeed a very special, unique property you will want to see.
