    Description

    This spectacular American Foursquare style home offers the luxuries of modern living with plenty of historical charm. Located on the highly sought after historic Third Avenue in the heart of downtown Durango, this fully remodeled home offers 4,254 square feet of living space in the main home, and an additional 500 square feet unfinished space above the 2-car garage that could easily be finished and used as a guest house or an ADU. Built in 1907, the historical "Herr House was originally the home of Charles Herr, founder of the Durango Lumber and Milling Company, and his family. The house features Italianate roof bracketing at the eaves on both the house and porch. The large porch with a pediment roof extends across the east facade. The structure exhibits fine wood detailing. The Herr home was the recipient of the 2004 City of Durangos Rehabilitation Award. The residence was recently remodeled, offering modern living, while maintaining its historic character. The spacious front porch has an open design where owners could converse with neighbors and passers-by. MAIN FLOOR: Step inside of the home and be welcomed by the grand foyer. The sitting area on the right side opens to a fully enclosed sunroom with a wall of windows bringing the outside in. The inviting living room features a fireplace that is original, but no longer functional, and the sliding doors open to a formal dining room behind it. The TV room underwent an extensive visual transformation featuring a unique coffered ceiling and leaded glass windows. The wood fireplace with metal insert was custom made to fit the opening. The decorative mantle is constructed of solid cherry and custom-built by Lansdowe Furniture, Inc.
