Welcome to The Retreat at Thunder Ridge, a rare opportunity to have an extraordinary slice of Colorado Mountain Living with this custom built retreat, set on nearly 90 acres, bordering approximately 1200 ACRES OF BLM LAND! Thunder Ridge offers a unique Colorado experience that is seldom found and truly leaves one in awe of the brilliant design and detailed craftsmanship. Enjoy complete privacy in a beautifully serene setting, yet less than twenty minutes to Downtown Durango amenities, several lakes and the regional airport. This 9 bedroom 13 bath masterpiece has many potential uses such as a large family residence or vacation home, a corporate or non profit retreat, high class hunting lodge, or a luxury bed & breakfast with wedding & event catering. The upmost quality, luxury and attention to detail are apparent the moment you enter the lodge through the custom portico, crafted with stone culled from the original foundation of local landmark, Helen's Store. Enjoy the open feeling of a soaring 42 foyer ceiling and custom, hand scraped saddle hickory flooring. Simply stepping in through this entryway alone is enough to leave any visitor in awe. This main level encompasses a custom hand crafted wet bar, a pass-thru wood burning fireplace with custom cedar mantle, three guest rooms with private decks, and an immense game room. The game room features a pool table, a full-size Texas Hold 'Em game table, built-in entertainment center, a wine cellar, and access to the hot tub, deck and horseshoe pit. Don't forget the separate mud/ski entry with ample storage for gear and skis. Amenities on this main level alone will surely entertain guests for hours!
