What does your Durango dream look like? Does it include unobstructed mountain views, gently rolling ridges and quiet birdsong all with easy, quick access to town at an accessible price? Is the vision you have for your life a low maintenance property with plenty of room for entertaining, horses, toys and hobbies? If this sounds like your goal, consider this custom built log home on 3 acres. [Note: Low maintenance is not a misnomer herethe Xeriscape landscaping is content with as much or as little tending as you care to give it, no steep/long driveways to plow/salt in winter, the roof sheds snow on its own.] Skillfully crafted of hand-hewn Missionary Ridge timber, this 3 bed, 1 3/4 bath home with attached 2 car garage and custom 2 stall horse barn and pasture features one-level Colorado living at its best. The open floor plan displays Ash hardwood flooring in the living areas, cozy heating with a pellet stove and electric baseboard, custom Hunter Douglas blinds and handmade hardwood finishes. The attached garage has even been converted into a 4 season studio/office space that can easily convert back to a garage at will. This well-appointed interior living space spills out onto an eastern patio and large west-facing deck with a large hot tub and pergola framing your million dollar views of the La Plata mountains. From here you can see the well-appointed custom cedar-sided horse/utility barn (tack room and wash stall plus a workshop) and pasture, garden/utility shed, and separate gravel driveway for RV parking. Youll also notice the quiet location and gentle Florida River valley breezes in this convenient neighborhood which includes access to a private pond adjacent the river with beach and picnic facilities. This one of a kind hand built log home is not just a place to keep your things, its a place to really live the Colorado dream. 90% of the restoration has already been lovingly completed with many upgrades to the original property. Take it to the finish line and make your Colorado dream come true!
