195 Ball Lane Durango CO Real Estate

Don't miss this absolute hidden treasure on the edge of the Durango city limits, but with the feel of being tucked in the mountains with astonishing views. Carefully crafted to take full advantage of the stunning views of the North Animas Valley, Missionary Ridge, and beyond, the views from nearly every window of this home will never bore you. Located less than ten minutes from Durango's famous downtown dining and art galleries, this home has been meticulously cared-for by the original owners, and is waiting for new owners to continue the enjoyment of this beautiful home. The open floor plan invites you in, but your eye will immediately be drawn to the spectacular views to the north that can be seen from the floor to ceiling windows in the living room, which features 20' vaulted ceilings. In addition to the dramatic views that are enjoyed from the living room, there is a corner gas fireplace with a stone surround and stone hearth that will warm the chilly air of this large space in the cold weather months. Adjacent to the living room is a dining area which can accommodate a large dining table and chairs. Beyond the dining room is the kitchen which any chef would enjoy cooking in. The kitchen features granite countertops with a natural stone tile backsplash, rich, dark wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, a large pantry, bar seating for two, and a built-in desk. The living area, dining area, and kitchen all feature natural stone tile flooring as well. Down the hall from the living area is the spacious and luxurious primary suite. The bathroom features double vanities, a corner soaking tub and separate shower, and a walk-in closet. Rounding out the floor plan on the main level is a powder room and home office, which could also be used as a fourth bedroom. The grand staircase leads you from the main level living space to the upper level, where you will find a sitting/reading area complete with built-in storage and bookshelves, as well as a window seat. There is also a TV room or den, and two additional bedrooms and a full bath on the upper level. Once outside, you will find a multitude of outdoor living areas, all of which take advantage of varying views and sun and shade depending on the time of day. Whether enjoying a cup of morning coffee in the small sitting area at the front of the house, or an evening cocktail on the shaded back deck, you will have a hard time focusing on anything besides the view. The low maintenance Trex deck spans the front, side, and back of the home, making it almost impossible to choose which view to enjoy and whether you should sit in the sun or the shade. Fortunately, there is a view and a light to suit nearly any mood. Off of the deck is the meticulously landscaped yard. Every tree, shrub, and flower has been carefully chosen and perfectly placed, and all are kept lush during the warm weather months by an in-ground irrigation system, making the beauty of the yard easy to achieve, even if you don't have a green thumb. There is plenty of storage throughout the home, but in case you're in need of more storage, there is a three car garage plus a 200 sf storage room off the garage. This is a truly special property in an incredibly desirable location. If you're looking for views and privacy without having to compromise location, then look no further. This is the property for you!
