    Description

    You will never want to leave this mountain contemporary 5 BR home and guest cabin located in the coveted Falls Creek Ranch neighborhood with excellent internet. Surrounded by 170,000 acres of National Forest, you can walk out the door of this charming home and hike, mountain bike, or horseback ride, then head to the community lake for an afternoon swim or cold beverage on the beach. This home is loaded with personality and classic craftsmanship with 3439 SF of living space in the main 5 BR home and an adorable detached guest cottage with carport. The home is nestled among Aspen, Oak, and Ponderosa trees with meandering walkways lined by native plants. Graceful outdoor decks, patios, hot tub set into boulders and gazebo allow you to take full advantage of the mountain setting with dramatic red cliff, forest and mountain views. The interior is crafted with tongue and groove ceilings, rustic wood beams and stained glass accents. The warm and welcoming living spaces are gracefully complemented by 2 wood burning cast iron stoves imported from France. This inviting family home features a spacious farmhouse kitchen with a large island and plenty of room for several cooks - granite countertops, Maple cabinetry, abundant windows with views of the gardens, Sub Zero fridge, Jenn Air cooktop, brand new stainless oven and dishwasher, and a bank of 6' glass-fronted cabinets for storage. A sunroom and breakfast nook off the kitchen both lead to covered outdoor patio so you can enjoy entertaining or al fresco dining any season. The elegant great room is a perfect gathering space with vaulted ceiling and west facing patio for sunset yoga. Dining room, 2 main floor bedrooms, ample storage closets and a full bath complete the main floor. Upstairs, there is a formal library with built in bookcases leading to a generous sized study/sitting room and private view deck; perfect for home office, media room, school studies or a 6th bedroom. A 3rd bedroom, updated laundry room and 4th bedroom (currently used as home office) with sleeping loft and a master suite round out the top floor. The master bathroom has a shower, soaking tub, and His & Her vanities. Air conditioning and humidifier were added to this light-filled home in 2019. Attached 2 car garage has a storage loft and workshop in the back which is great for projects. The "wee cabin" has a large room and 1/2 bath plus a 9' high carport for extra vehicles. Only 15 minutes into town, yet private and secluded with plenty of wildlife to enjoy, Falls Creek Ranch offers 840 acres of common land, a private lake for fishing, swimming, boating, a tennis court, horse corral, community garden and lots of trails into the surrounding San Juan National Forest. Located about 9 scenic miles North of Durango through a breathtaking hidden valley of National Forest Land. Aligntech internet is 5 MBps down and 2 MB/s up stream. Fast enough to stream movies on several devices.
