This artistic custom residence is located in "the Ranch" - a private subdivision in the North Animas Valley that is close to Durango, the mountains, Durango Mountain Resort, and Hermosa Creek trail system as well as shopping at the local PJs market and Ace hardware store. This extraordinary 3 BR home was recently remodeled with no expense spared - addition, kitchens, baths, windows, exterior and grounds. As soon as you open the door on the covered entry, you will appreciate the warmth and charm in this home through many unique details. This home is located on a cul de sac with beautiful mature trees, majestic mountain views as well as an outdoor oasis with a backyard pond, and arbor over a stone patio. This home has been professionally updated with modern finishes including gourmet kitchen, tall windows showcasing the outdoors, new bathrooms, and woodwork. On the main floor you will find a master suite with shower, tub and custom closet, laundry room, and a den or office at the end of the hall that doubles as guest space. The remainder of the main level has an open concept centered around the gourmet kitchen - formal living room, sunken dining with patio, walk-in pantry with microwave and wine fridge. A cheery sitting area in kitchen provides guests a place to chat with the chef or enjoy a large private stone patio. Upstairs you will find a loft space with room for a lounge, gym or office. There are two large upstairs bedrooms with a shared bath as well as a bonus room with a deck that is used as an art studio, but could be a 4th room if extra space is needed. The home has plenty of built-in cabinetry, quality wood windows, skylights and delightful decorating touches. The remodeled kitchen includes Alder cabinets, slab granite countertops, farm sink, custom lighting and quality stainless steel appliances. There is an attached 3 car garage and plenty of parking space. Residents at The Ranch enjoy trout fishing, tennis court, secure RV storage area, a private beach on the Animas River, and a 30 acre wildlife preserve along the Hermosa Creek.
