Description

The quintessential Colorado mountain retreat, this custom Lafferty built home offers the perfect balance of luxury and rustic finishes surrounded by Aspens and tall Pines. A spacious 3,406 square feet, this 3 bedroom 2.5 bath home includes a formal dining room, second living area and a bonus room perfect for an office or home gym. Three fireplaces keep the home cozy in the winter - two-sided in the dining room and kitchen, sunken seating area at the living room wood burning fireplace and the third in the downstairs secondary living area. Notice the architectural niches, river rock accents and log construction throughout. Upgrades include a roof heating system, in floor heat in the lower level, vaulted ceiling with clerestory windows in the dining room, and T & G gorgeous ceiling in the living/great room to enjoy the big spectacular views. A luxury kitchen for the home chef includes all stainless steel appliances: Frigidaire 5-burner gas cooktop, Frigidaire double wall oven, Panasonic microwave (new), Maytag refrigerator, LG dishwasher with hidden controls, granite slab counters with full backsplash and even a built in wine rack in the island. Upper level master suite has spectacular views, a private deck, and a luxury bath with dual sinks, multiple body sprays in the shower and a private commode. Take in the gorgeous Colorado mountain setting outdoors by the fire pit, from the various decks or enjoy a stroll down the flagstone path and around the 5.6 acre property. Meticulous gardens are a treasure and offer lilacs, lavender, holly hocks, columbines, bleeding heart, daisies, bearded iris and daffodils. A storage barn in addition to a detached 2-car garage allows plenty of room for all the cars and "toys". Wilderness Lake Mountain Estates is located at the northern end of CR 243 just beyond Lemon Reservoir. It is bounded to the north and east by U.S. Forest Service lands. The homeowners association provides snow removal. Recreation on public lands in the ares plays a large role in the community: fishing, boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, hunting, backpacking, hiking, rock climbing, camping, biking, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, snowmobiling, sledding, photography, and star-gazing. According to a report published by the Greater Lemon Reservoir Community Wildfire Protection Plan Committee June 2017, the San Juan Sledders Club grooms several miles of snowmobiling trails during the winter as the area serves as a gateway to the San Juan Mountains where opportunities to enjoy the outdoors abound. The public land stakeholders are the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Geological Survey, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, the Colorado Division of Water Resources, the Florida River Water Conservancy District water interests, La Plata County Road and Bridges Department, the City of Durango, and the City of Durango Utilities Department (Waterworks). History of Lemon Dam and Reservoir: The Florida Water Conservancy District was established in 1948 under Colorado state statutes as a political subdivision for the Florida Watershed with the task of creating water storage for the watershed. Calculations were made for the volume of water needed to irrigate the Florida Mesa agricultural corridor. The District worked with the Bureau of Reclamation to acquire land through land fees from private owners. Lemon Dam was built between 1948-1963 and is owned by the Bureau of Reclamation (U.S. Department of the Interior). The Keeper of the Dam resides in the house and manages the equipment barn south of the Dam on CR 243, and has overseen the Florida Water Conservancy Districts Dam operations for the past 40 years. Water is released from the Reservoir as needed and conveyed in the natural river channel to the heads of the various downstream canals and ditches that divert the flow and distribute the water to project lands.
