PRIVACY IN THE ANIMAS VALLEY. 3.5 ACRES NO COVENANTS, DURANGO COLORADO This home is nestled at the base of the mountain on 3.5 acres. The western boundary is National Forest. Living in the Animas Valley is like being on a permanent staycation. From the moment you turn on to County Road 203 relaxation begins and is completed as you drive up the tree canopied driveway and arrive at your own personal oasis. The landscaping feels lush with perennial gardens and grassy lawns. Surrounded by scrub oak trees that create a very private, relaxing ambiance. Hummingbirds buzz in the air as you enjoy your time on the deck or patio. All 4 seasons are spectacular here. Spring greenery, fall leaves and the solitude of winter snows full of quiet beauty. This one owner home evolved from 1600 square feet to 2400 square feet with the addition of the spacious master suite in 1992. To maximize the views the living space is upstairs and the bedrooms are downstairs keeping them cool in the summer. The main level has a large welcoming entry, bedrooms, laundry and 2 baths. The master suite is on the north side of the house and the additional two bedrooms and full bath are on the south side of the house allowing for privacy. The upper level has the kitchen, dining, living and a full bath. There is a wall of windows and a deck to capture the views. With the placement on the lot, continued expansion is limited only by the imagination (or needs of the owner). Easy to add a garage and zoning allows granny flats. WHAT A LIFESTYLE: Incredible views include the sun setting on the red cliffs across the valley, watching the Durango and Silverton Railroad chug up and down the tracks and mountain peaks. The valley is the place to live. In the fall the wildlife abound including foxes, deer and the occasional bear moving across the mountain behind the house. And if youre up early on Snowdown weekend you can watch the hot air balloons silently floating down the valley. This location cant be beat for enjoying all the outdoor activities Durango has to offer; Purgatory Ski Resort, golf, soaking at Trimble Hot Springs. Biking and hiking literally out your front door. Walk less than mile to the waterfall hike into Falls Creek. Plus countless other National Forest hikes. Mid valley has a grocery store, hardware, liquor store and restaurants at Trimble Lane and in Hermosa. Conveniently close to downtown. THE LOT AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD: 3.5 Acres backing to National Forest in the Animas Valley. There are no covenants. The driveway
