Description

A view like youve never seen before of Lake Columbine, Engineer Mountain, Grizzly Peaks and the Hermosa Cliffs. Bordering over 900 feet of Lake Columbine aka as Lake Purgatory. The seasonal flow from Little Cascade Creek into the lake supports paddle boarding, tubing, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing during the Spring to mid-Summer period as well as snowshoeing and cross-country skiing during the winter. This 7-acre parcel offers mountain living to the fullest with a home that matches the beauty of the mountains and water it shares and only 1.5 miles to Purgatory Ski entrance. Two levels of living with the main living room offering 10-foot ceilings with massive windows and a deck to soak in the views, while the upstairs great room also offers another 20+ feet of ceiling height windows looking north, another huge deck to the most fabulous winter and summer views one could get in the coveted in North Animas Valley. Upon entry into the home, youll find the perfect tiled space to store your skis, benches to sit and take off your boots, and hang your coats. Once inside the home, youll immediately be welcomed into the large entertainment area which combines living and dining room, features the FABULOUS views, a wet bar for entertaining and a cozy gas stove for cool winter nights. The living room will seat the entire reunion and everyone will have a view. The kitchen features newer stainless-steel appliances, including a Viking gas stove and double oven, while the breakfast nook extends the space with loads of natural light and its own south facing deck. This space is perfect for coffee looking south to the mountains. Above the kitchen is another living space, bedroom and a bath, perfect for your guests to have their own privacy. In the addition, built in 1995 (with steel supports) youll find the two large living/great rooms plus more bedroom spaces, flex space that could be used as an office or additional bedroom, tons of storage and againphenomenal views. The home features multiple deck spaces where you can get out and enjoy the fresh Colorado mountain air. Solar was added in the last year+ and provides for very minimal electric usage, so far since installation the owners only pay LPEA basic administrative fees. Quite possibly one of the best parts of this home is the 900+ feet of lake front.paddle, fish, play right out your door. Well maintained home, new septic in 2017, new well pump with plentiful water, a combination of in-floor heat in the newer portion of the home and furnace in the original. Beautiful tongue and groove ceilings and walls, Starlink internet set up to transfer, large garage space, tons of parking, aspen trees, pines, and more. This home would make an incredible short-term rental given the amenities both summer and winter, with the ability to accommodate plenty of guests. Part of the true excitement of this property's location is the proximity to Purgatory Resort's abundance of activities, some of the best skiing (alpine and cross-country), snowshoeing, snow-mobiling, hiking, jeeping, climbing, hunting, fishing in the State of Colorado. Excitement for the area comes as well from the growing love for the greater Durango/Purgatory region as not only a vacation destination but an increasingly attractive place to live and/or invest. Durango has been chosen as the No. 1 ranked Colorado tourist destination for the second year in a row, and 15th in the nation, according to the Tourism Sentiment Index. Purgatory was named No. 6 in North America as their Best of the Best destinations. Even better, Purgatory Resort was awarded No. 1 as the Best of the Best destinations in the State of Colorado for 2023. Don't miss this opportunity to own these views and this home! You won't be disappointed.
