Sweeping La Plata Mountain views grace this modern timber frame home. Situated commandingly at the top of a gently sloping 8 acre site this home offers privacy and convenience all within minutes of downtown Durango. Generously proportioned outdoor areas with mature landscaping surround this meticulously maintained and thoughtfully designed home with 2 BR/3 Ba and a two car garage. Superior craftsmanship and interesting architectural details are revealed in the beautifully executed solid oak traditional timber framing. On the main level, a cooks gourmet kitchen with a walk in pantry will be where everyone relaxes and celebrates at the heart of this open concept home. Living and dining room areas are flanked by a 2 story wall of windows offering amazing views of the La Plata mountains, which stretch majestically across the western horizon. You will love watching the storms roll in and cover the mountains, and the sky lit up every evening with fantastically brilliant sunsets. In winter the views of the sun setting on the snow covered peaks are absolutely stunning. The generous master suite has direct access to the covered porch where you can enjoy soaking in the hot tub and star gazing. A family room on the ground level of the home creates a separate space for movies and overflow. The third floor has a private guest suite with jetted tub, cozy den and home office with stunning views to the west. Key features include: a whole house water softening system, and reverse osmosis system at the kitchen sink for tasty drinking water. New furnace in 2018. Deck stained fall of 2021, new roofing laid in 2018, extensive outdoor landscape lighting. New Whirlpool refrigerator and dishwasher in 2019. Newly laid maple hardwood flooring, blinds throughout, and a convenient laundry chute in the master closet. Master bath with dual shower heads and twin vanity. Wired for stereo sound inside and out. The fenced backyard has a large secluded flagstone patio with a pergola, and composite deck with a built in bench. There is an additional side yard that is fenced with a dog house. All the mature landscaping is serviced by a drip line irrigation system. Relax in the back yard and listen to the Aspen leaves rustling in the breeze. You will love that Three Springs as well as the Hospital are less than 5 minutes away and the La Plata County Airport is only 10 minutes. Please see below for what the Seller's love about the home. The primary bedroom is cozy, and sits in the sweet spot of the house as far as climate control. It’s warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. Even in winter it’s only 1 step to land you in the hot tub to watch the sunset. Perched on the hill, we get the last of the afternoon sun on winter days. We love the outdoor space surrounding the house. The front deck views are always amazing. Take your pick; views off the front deck, or the shady private retreat amongst the landscaping out back. Both areas have ample room, and are great for outdoor meals, or just hanging out. We enjoy walking with our dogs on the trails around the property, as well as large meadow below the house. We love entertaining in the kitchen and great room, among the wood beams. The red and white oak timbers came from Ohio from Amish country, and will stand the test of time. The golden framework is artistic and visually appealing, and all held together with traditional mortise and tenon joinery. We’ve enjoyed the wildlife through the years. There’s a family of red tail hawks that you can always find circling the house, a pair of kestrels, and owls. Even the elk pay us occasional visits.
