Elegance and thoughtful detail abound in this classic southwest Colorado home. Set back from the road and situated among 39+/- acres of juniper and pinion woodlands, the homesite offers sweeping views of the La Plata Mountains with maximum visual privacy. Ascend the curved stone steps to an entryway that opens into an elegant great room and kitchen area. This spacious central room with tumbled travertine floors and twelve foot ceilings provides an inviting and warm space for easy entertaining and everyday living. The handsome stone fireplace and mantle features custom masonry, reclaimed oak, large gas logs, and a custom steel fire screen and mantle supports created by a local artisan blacksmith. Mountain views are prominent throughout this main room as new picture windows plus a custom steel and glass doorway by Schiavone Woodworking were added to maximize light and views. The thoughtfully designed kitchen area works great for everyday use and delivers optimal function and style for parties and entertaining. Details include a Lacanche French range with six burners, griddle, grill, French eye, custom commercial venting system, and three ovens (2 electric/1 gas). The kitchen also has a microwave drawer, stainless 48-bottle wine cooler, stainless Sub-Zero glass-front refrigerator, single-slab granite countertops and a large island with bar seating and stainless sink. There's also a cozy breakfast niche with window seating surrounded by large windows framing incredible mountain views. A separate freezer-fridge provides extra storage. The formal dining room provides an enchanting dining environment with 10' ceilings, chandeliers, cream linen curtains and custom lighting. The private sitting room located near the two guest suites creates a warm atmosphere for quiet conversation. This bonus living space is filled with natural light by the newly installed picture windows lending dramatic views of the surrounding hills and rocky cliffs. A cozy gas fireplace is framed by a lovely mantle with granite accents and built in book cases. The beautiful powder room was renovated in 2022 with Phillip Jeffries wallpaper, custom wooden vanity, contemporary formed concrete sink and sconce lighting. Down the corridor on the opposite end from the guest suites is the private master bedroom suite. This spacious retreat includes a gas fireplace with an antique cypress mantle from New Orleans and two large walk-in closets. The master suite boasts gorgeous views of the scenic surroundings via picture windows on the north and french doors leading to the north deck. The luxurious master bath has seamless granite counter tops, walk-in steam shower with three waterfall shower heads, built-in corner bench and separate deep-soak bathtub. Each guest bedroom features en-suite bathrooms. The first guest bedroom has 10’ ceilings with two closets. This bathroom has shower tub/combo with travertine tile counters, Kohler porcelain sinks, and bronze fixtures. Guest bedroom two also has a large walk-in closet with rear deck access and beautiful views of the La Platas. The en-suite bathroom has a porcelain Kohler under-mount sink, walk-in shower with a built-in bench and waterfall shower head. The owners added air conditioning in early 2024. Many improvements for outdoor enjoyment including a stucco and stone front patio with built-in seating and serving shelf. This appealing feature can be used throughout the day. Evening use is made comfortable with a 72-inch custom stone masonry ribbon fireplace with glass wind screen. Over 25 trees including fir, pine, spruce and aspen have been added along with establishing perennial beds with flowers, roses and shrubs to attract summer butterflies and hummingbirds. The entire area surrounding the house outside of the beds has been seeded for local grasses. A new asphalt driveway was completed in '21 and seal coated in 2022. The heated 864 square ft 3-car garage provides warmth and extra storage. 15 minutes to Durango!
