$30k price reduction on this rare West 2nd Ave property. Properties like this do not present themselves for sale often...A West 2nd Avenue home on Junction Creek with tons of potential, for both immediate income and future expansion! This enormous .26 acre lot sits along side Junction Creek, with ample room to expand the existing 2 BR/1 BA home for additional living space and a modern master suite. The current improvements' location on the north portion of the lot allows for the possibility of an oversize garage on the south side, and zoning will allow another dwelling unit above it. Buyer to verify City requirements. The 1028 sf main house lives large, offering high ceilings, original wood floors throughout, an open floor plan, kitchen and bathroom updates, and relatively recent electrical and plumbing upgrades (2004). The adorable 408 sf back cottage features a 1 BR/ 1 Bath option for guests or rental income. The property has lots of old growth vegetation, and some of the best fruit trees around. There are stone retaining walls and stairs that create small nooks nearer to the creek, perfect for a hammock or picnic area. The sounds of Junction Creek from the backyard will easily make you forget that you are just minutes from the amenities of downtown Durango. While the homes have been used as rentals for some time, a discerning buyer will see the opportunity for personal touches to make this home something very special, something very befitting of West 2nd Avenue. The Elementary, Middle and High Schools are all minutes away by foot or bike, as is the River Trail, Rec Center, and all things outdoor that Durango has to offer. With consideration of the location, the creek, and the potential of an 11,491 sf lot and smaller home, this West 2nd Avenue property will not last long!
