Nestled on it’s own hillside at the end of a dead-end road only 9 miles from downtown Durango, this Dyerbuilt custom home is truly a masterpiece to behold. From the valley views below where Lake Nighthorse can be seen, to the mountain views above where one can see the snowcapped Continental Divide, every direction you look off of this property is gorgeous.
Unlike the smaller 5 acre lots in the Shenandoah area, this 43+ acre parcel has 3 central water taps through Lake Durango. With only 1 water tap currently active, the other 2 taps could be used for building additional homes on this acreage, or possibly subdividing into three separate parcels.
For the buyer looking for that big tax break, consider the opportunity for a conservation easement to be put in place on this acreage. Designed for one level living, this custom home offers everything you need on the main level, including master bedroom, living/family room , kitchen, dining, office, half bathroom, and laundry room. Huge kitchen has solid granite slab counters with under-mount sinks, GE Monogram appliances including 6 burner duel fuel range and 53 bottle wine cooler. The large master suite has a raised bedroom, gas fireplace and sitting area, and a spacious bathroom with large custom shower for two, his and her vanities, and a huge walk-in closet with custom built-in drawers and shoe racks. The den/office has tons of built-ins including adjustable shelves, credenza, and custom gun case. Each guest room on the 2nd floor has it’s own private bathroom. Oversized, heated 3 car garage has built in cabinets with work bench, and a dog wash.
