This exceptional 1898 Victorian home is where history meets function on the quiet side of 3rd avenue in Durango, CO! The previous owner was a master cabinet maker/finish carpenter, who painstakingly remodeled this much desired historic beauty. All newer wiring, plumbing, double paned windows with reclaimed oak hardwood floors, all-natural New Zealand wool carpeting upstairs, in floor heat with ample insulation to keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. The kitchen stove is an 1896 Quick Meal with modern gas cook top with hand crafted oak hood and sits under high 10' ceilings in the combo kitchen/dining/living area. An ample butler's pantry has an extra prep sink, recycle/trash drawers, dishwasher and wall oven. A small atrium with double French doors leads to the courtyard, brick patio and organic garden and mature, low maintenance landscaping. The parlor has an original beautiful working fireplace and the room could be converted to a 3rd BR/library or den as it is now. The upstairs master bedroom has a master bath with dual showerheads, a large a walk-in closet and a sitting-balcony with views over the city to the San Juan mountains. The adjacent office doubles as yoga-room or library, and would be a perfect nursery. The large laundry room is hidden behind beautiful solid wood custom-crafted double doors which are adorned throughout the home with original door handles. Well-placed skylights bring lots of light and sunshine into the master bedroom and down through chases to the main level. Beyond the courtyard is a very large shop/garage for cars and hobbies with a 455 sf mother-in-law quarters above (considered in the total sf as upper story). You will enjoy sitting on the front porch or wonderful garden courtyard looking at your mature Chinese maple or picking yummy cherries from your tree as you unwind at the end of your day. This home is in walking distance of all of quaint downtown Durango. The studio rents for $1,000 per month and provides steady income, or could be used as a wonderful guest house. A joy to show and a joy to own, let this beautiful historic home in downtown Durango be yours.
