About this property

Featured in Log Home Living magazine, this home is truly a work of exquisite craftsmanship and precision log construction detail. Owned by the builder himself, you will find his sought-after skills showcased throughout the home, exemplified by the extra-large logs of mature Engelmann spruce cut and pieced together in the saddle-notch style of the early frontier. The home is a hidden gem, located on 4 acres of land with an irrigation pond, apple orchard, and sweeping views boarding over 100 acres of wildlife reserve, with convenient highway access to Mercy Medical Center, downtown Durango, and the nearby regional airport, perfect for the telecommuter with jet service to five major hubs and fiberoptic lines nearby. Enter the warm and comfortable living room with Douglas fir hardwood floors, vaulted tongue and groove aspen ceilings, and wood burning fireplace. The floor plan flows into an open dining and kitchen with custom detailing throughout, from the hand-crafted blue pine kitchen cabinet pulls crafted from the apple trees right outside the back door to the custom staircase made from heritage cottonwoods harvested from a nearby family farm. The main level hosts two generously sized bedrooms with views and a full bath. The private master suite is located on the second floor with direct access to a covered deck to take in the views, and also hosts a full bath, dressing area, and large loft for a home office, craft room, or relaxing getaway space. The lower level, previously garage space, has been transformed to a finished walk-out basement consisting of a game room with an efficient soap stone wood burning fireplace, bathroom, two non-conforming guest rooms, and pantry/ wine storage room. Priced significantly under replacement cost, this home also features radiant in-floor heating, lighted stain glass accent piece, and large windows and multiple decks throughout providing sweeping vistas inside and out. NO HOA! This property could be an ideal vacation rental!
