Located in the gated community of Castle Rock Mountain Village, this home is 2 miles south of Purgatory Ski Resort, 25 miles north of Durango and about 6 miles from Glacier Club. Nestled among the towering aspen trees at the top of the neighborhood, this home enjoys paved access and backs to the San Juan National Forest. The seller purchased the adjacent lot and is offering both lots which total just over 2 acres. The owners have completed many upgrades to this already spectacular home. They extended the roof on the back of the home and added a custom outdoor kitchen which includes a gas grill/smoker, stove top burners and a refrigerator all packaged together in beautiful stone work and granite countertops. The new roof extension also covers an elevated stone fire ring and a large sitting area perfect for evening entertaining. They also completely surrounded the home with a river rock border that ties in beautifully with the terraced rock walls in the back and the landscaped beds in front. The border also gives the home defensible fire space in every direction. Coupled with the fire mitigation done over the years, this home is firewise. The home also has snow melt systems on the roof. Featuring four different levels, this home can sleep 22 people comfortably. Downstairs is a completely finished, walk-out basement which is on ground level with driveway access for guests. Two guest bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, another full bath by the downstairs laundry room and a large living area that has a gas fireplace, pool table, entertainment center, wet bar and Murphy beds hidden in the wall to wall cabinets. On the main level there are two more bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. One bedroom opens to a private deck and the other has huge windows that look out to the surrounding forest.

Remote control blinds on that wall allow the outdoors in at the push of a button. With an open floor plan, the great room, formal dining room and kitchen are ideal for entertaining. The kitchen has beautiful granite countertops and an oversized island. Stainless steel Kitchen Aid appliances compliment the custom wood cabinets. There is another large laundry room that sits just off the kitchen. The primary bedroom is located on its own level, just a few stairs up from the kitchen.
