Durango CO, 81301


This is the log home or model railroader enthusiasts dream home that awaits in a private setting with double gated entrance, pond, irrigation waterfall feature, and the joys of the Animas river flowing nearby. This beautiful Swedish cope designed home has many features not commonly found in log homes such as mood lighting, A/C, automatic backup generator, and virtually a complete smart home with remote power and security options. Entering the home you can awe your guests with a gorgeous presentation of stairs and a locally built custom home. Or, you can enter through the main level next to a three car garage through an oversized french door. This home is handicap accessible on the main level including an oversized powder room and main level master suite. The home features maple flooring, partial carpet, and slate tile through out that is all in-floor radiant heat. Your guest or family will enjoy their own private quarters upstairs that has beautifully spacious bedrooms and an entertainment room with gorgeous views. There is also an office upstairs that could easily be converted into an exercise room, or bunkhouse area if an office is not needed. The lowest level of the home has a beautifully set up mother in law area or if you wanted to rent out the basement for a caretaker they would have their own private access, bedroom suite, and plumbed for a kitchenette. The lowest level also homes one of the top 5 in the nation model railroads, that mimics the Northern Pacific/ Great Northern and was featured in the O scale Trains magazine in 2009. The space is also so substantial you could remove the train and use it for a multitude of entertainment purposes. This is a home full of details and history from antique light fixtures, to luxury log home features like a 50 ft Douglas fir log supporting the spiral staircase hand scraped logs. Its also very efficient for a second home or corporate retreat with its own snowmelt system and technology. There is also a bed and breakfast nearby, making it very nice for bringing in visitors to the area! This beautiful property was featured in a recent article in The Log Home Living Magazine
