Five Private Acres with fabulous La Plata Views on this sweet 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home. Lovingly maintained, the home features brand new windows, new wall texture and new paint throughout, new slab granite countertops in kitchen, new backsplash, Bosch EnergyStar dishwasher, stainless appliances with a built-in beverage refrigerator, new interior doors, new Kohler toilets, freshly stained deck and pergola and new cordless wood blinds. On the main floor are the Master bedroom suite with large master bath - big walk-in shower, jetted tub, dual vanities; plus the powder room, and other living space; with two guest bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. Through the garage you'll find a great, heated workshop/man cave/teenager room of 220 square feet (included in total measurement). Plenty of outdoor enjoyment with friends possible on the 600 sf deck with fire pit area, as well as the covered wraparound porch. Technically outside the City limits, the home still enjoys natural gas for heat and hot water, central sewer, yet has its own very abundant well with sweet tasting water, which can be used to irrigate up to one acre of the land - perfect for those who wish to garden without the high cost of city water. In fact, the property has established, producing fruit trees - apple, pear, peach, apricot and plum; and all outdoor landscaping is on an automatic drip system. Flowers include rose bushes, lilac bush, tulips, hastas, vinca, purple clematis , and yuccas. A 3 year old front loading LG washer/dryer set is included. WHAT HAVE THE OWNERS LOVED THE BEST? “THE VIEW - you feel away from everything when you want to have that private time, but close enough to go do things…”the beautiful sunsets from our porch” “how quiet it is up here” “seeing lots of wildlife”. Only a ten minute drive into downtown Durango, 3 minutes to Home Depot. In this small subdivision of only 18 homes and two vacant lots, neighbors are friendly and the HOA payment of $650 per year takes care of the blacktopped roads and snow removal. Individual owners can do their own driveways or hire the person who snowplows the main road. The private entrance gives you roughly 93 yards of blacktopped driveway with guest parking area, plus a 28 yard perfect gravelled space in which to pull an RV. A solid 12 ft by 8 ft storage shed for your toys; and low utilities thanks to abundant use of LED lighting and solar tubes. Average monthly electric bill of $74 over this past year and average natural gas bill of $78 per month. The 5 acre parcel is comprised of roughly two acres of pinon/junpier, two acres of open grassland , one acre of home/landscape…could add grass if you wish. Small animals such as chickens, rabbits, etc are welcome. An evaporative cooler to take the edge off summertime heat in included, as well as whole house attic fan. And the garage door is a new Chamberlain, very quiet, with the Gateway app that connects to your wi-fi so you can control it from your phone. Great wi-fi through HiSpeed4You, who is upgrading from 10 mgps to 20 mgps. Clean, dry crawl space with vapor barrier; plus a whole house water filtration system whose filters are inexpensive and very easy to change every couple of months. Original pump test on this well was 20 gpm, (15 gpm is maximum usage) and sellers had the well, pump and water quality checked this summer; determined to be very good. 220V currently there behind dryer, (gas also) and on the well. Treat yourself to views, privacy, plenty of space, freedom and convenient location in this wonderful home!

We chose Sigrid Cottrell based on a local recommendation and extensive knowledge of the Crested Butte, Colorado market as we were new to the area. She did not disappoint! Admittedly, we were not the easiest clients to work with as we had a very long "must have" list (to say the least). Sigrid  went way above and beyond throughout the entire process, and that even included setting up short notice appointments with reputable contractors, which in itself was no easy feat. As we worked with her, it soon became apparent she was more concerned that we find the right property versus her profiting from her commission on the sale. Sigrid's professionalism, enthusiastic and positive attitude, as well as her flexibility made the process very enjoyable. She was dependable, detail oriented and her knowledge was reflected in all elements of the process. If we are ever in need of a Real Estate professional in the future, we wouldn't hesitate to call upon Sigrid Cottrell and highly recommend her to any one who is! aeromosa
