Sunlight pours in through the huge South facing windows of this custom home in the pines. 14 miles to downtown Durango, the subdivision has trail access into the National Forest and is close to both Lemon Reservoir (10 minutes) and Vallecito Lake (20 minutes) for year-round recreation. The main level has an open floor plan that flows easily from the spacious kitchen through the open living space and out the sliding doors to the huge wrap around deck perfect for entertaining. The pellet stove, in addition to forced air, keeps the house warm all winter and the custom Koa woodwork on the fireplace is the center piece of the room. The kitchen has a large pantry, ash cabinets, solid teak floors, plenty of counter space, an island, bar seating, and a new refrigerator. There is a separate dining area with updated contemporary lighting and a full bathroom on this level as well. Many of the light fixtures are new with energy efficient LED bulbs. Upstairs features an open loft with built in cabinets and desk. The master bedroom and bath is also on the upper level. Downstairs there is a second bedroom, laundry room, large bathroom and tons of storage and shop space. With 2361 square feet, there is a lot of space in this home for all your needs. Outside, the pine forest has been thinned on the lot for fire safety and to allow more sun for gardening if desired. There is a shed for storage and more space to store outside items under the deck. Also plenty of room to build a garage. Fire hydrant at the street and home owners insurance is currently with State Farm for $800/year. Los Ranchitos subdivision supplies central water and road maintenance, both included in the HOA fee of $494 quarterly. Snow removal is available for $200/year.
