This is an unexpected gem located in the pine forest of Durango Hills. Magnificent far reaching pine framed southern views and absolute peace and tranquility are afforded. The home sits virtually in the middle of the 8+ acres which provides a real feeling of privacy and tranquility. There has been a lot of thought and care in designing and finishing the home and it is well and easily maintained. The The Hardie Plank concrete composite siding really adds in this regard. The great room including a spacious chef's kitchen with large 34' counter opening to a dining room and living room is very light and airy opens to a large "floating" Trex deck and magnificent views. A large 52 solar panel array generates enough electricity such that the total electric bill in 2017 was only $960. This includes an electric boiler and 8 zone in floor radiant heat. Besides the 2 bedrooms and 2 baths included is a very large office area which could be remodeled for an alternative use. There is also another large unfinished room which would accommodate a game room or other ideas, as well as a concrete encased possible vault or wine cellar. Plenty of storage is provided. The home includes a large oversized 1 car garage. Propane is only utilized for the kitchen cook top and barbeque so the 1000 gallon tank needs minimal refilling. The road maintenance and plowing are paid for through the property taxes so there are no HOA fees other than a suggested $300/year fee to help with extra road costs.
