    Description

    This riverfront property offers the perfect blend of seclusion and convenience, tucked away in a private subdivision at the confluence of Hermosa Creek and the Animas River, making for a verdant and unique home base for all of your recreational pursuits. Located only 18 miles from Purgatory Resort you will be able to get first tracks on powder days. The central location in the heart of the Animas Valley assures that you can easily spend your time road cycling or mountain biking all within minutes of leaving your front door. Fly fishing, in either Hermosa Creek or the Animas River is quite literally at your doorstep, just a walk across the lawn. There is a hardware store; grocery store, a cafe across HWY 550, Dalton Ranch Golf Course with dining and a fitness center, and the Animas Valley elementary school within a 5 minute drive. You are only 7miles to Durango City Limits and all of the fantastic dining and shopping opportunities that it holds. Its all about the lifestyle you want and this property will help you create it. This lush setting offers mature landscaping with a stunningly beautiful pond which is home to turtles, waterfowl and is an attraction for wildlife as well as a contemplative and picturesque setting for this magnificent custom home. Plenty of irrigation water for an ambitious vegetable or flower garden with an in-ground sprinkler system, the large level landscape invites the vision and energy of those with a green thumb. The location in the center of the valley ensures a consistent amount of sun throughout the day. Meticulously crafted by Martin Smith of Hawkeye Builders, no detail was overlooked in the construction of this one of a kind architectural masterpiece. Just awaiting your touch, the home offers spacious and well -proportioned rooms, expansive windows, soaring ceilings, and a cozy library, well designed home office, end-suite guest bedrooms and a lovely main master suite. All with fine interior craftsmanship and thoughtful cabinetry and layout. This 4,095 SF and 5BR/BA home on 9 lush acres gives you and your guests plenty of room to relax and enjoy your time together. Beginning with the grand entrance youll find yourself drawn in to an elegant and spacious interior with dramatic views of the surrounding valley and red Hermosa cliffs. Large windows bathe the interior in stunning natural light. Experience indoor/outdoor living with effortless flow between multiple patios and living spaces, bringing you closer to nature and the peaceful tranquility of the river. An outdoor stone fire pit is a great place to relax and recount the days adventures. The gourmet kitchen features a commercial quality chefs Viking range and top of the line appliances. The efficient layout makes it a dream come true for the enthusiastic chef and particularly well suited for lavish entertaining and large family gatherings. The dining room, surrounded on three sides with large windows, provides a warm, bright open air feel even in the depths of winter. Steps away, the grand living room with a wood burning fireplace with a gas starter offers a comfortable retreat after a day of fly fishing, skiing, cycling or hiking in the nearby San Juan Mountains. Off the living room, the library with custom bookshelves can easily contain your favorite volumes making it easy to relax and read by the fireplace. For those among us who are working more and more from home, the home office is an essential and vital space. The well conceived layout of this home office is evident immediately, from the custom cabinets, and built-in desk area which looks out across the pond, waterfall, and up to the dramatic Hermosa cliffs which loom above the valley floor. The sun filled main level master suite has its own access to the patio, a cozy gas fireplace, a large walk in closet and comfortable bath. The upper story features 3 guest rooms with 2 full baths, each light filled with unique and spectacular views of the valley, cliffs and pond.
