Located just 10 miles from downtown Durango and representing one of the most unique properties to come to market in many years, this beautifully built estate sits upon one of the most desirable big acre tracts in Durango, with proximity to hundreds of acres of public land that boast some of the areas most famous hiking and biking trails and miles of world class views. The meticulously designed 4900 sf home is modern in its floor plan, offering up to 5 large bedrooms with 3.5 bathrooms, and is complete with a Great Room, media/rec room, loft area, main level master suite, chefs kitchen and multiple outdoor living spaces. A significant but easy to overlook feature of this home is the existence of the structural shaft for a future elevator to be installed when the need comes to make getting from the first floor to the third floor easier. Well thought out in every way, the home is also air conditioned for when summer temps are high. This property takes advantage of the Southwest Colorado sun, with a 9.5 kilowatt solar system on the roof, providing enough electric power to eliminate most if not all of the electric bills for this residence. For the discerning buyer, what makes this property a one of a kind is its unique location at the end of the residential side of CR 237, directly adjacent to the eastern edge of the Horse Gulch Trail system that has made Durango famous. The stunning view to the west is completely uninterrupted, with no structures or homes to see. Developing a parcel of this caliber takes time and expense: the almost 19 acre tract has costly infrastructure that will impress: examples include a good producing well and complex water filtration system, water spigots throughout the property, large and functional parking areas, and a half mile road of the highest quality that allows the house to be tucked out of view, with supreme privacy. The 360 degree views of the mountains, Lake Nighthorse, and surrounding formations will delight anyone looking for the ultimate Colorado experience. For the second home owner or investor, this property would make an excellent vacation rental to offset carrying costs.
