Property Description

Mountain Memories is nestled on 75-acres bordered by two sides of the 13,444+ acre Perins Peak Wildlife Area, creating an expansive amount of private and tranquil space with endless recreational opportunities out the back door. This 5,708 SF, 3 bedroom, 4.5 bath timber-frame home is sited in an incredible location with gorgeous mountain views. It is an architectural gem that has an exceptional layout with the owner’s suite on the main level and the guest bedrooms upstairs, each with access to their own private Brazilian teak deck. When you enter the home you are welcomed into the expansive great room with a 32 ft high hammer beam cathedral ceiling with floor to ceiling trapezoidal windows, plus a substantial rock fireplace, creating a perfect gathering place for entertaining guests. Adjacent there is a bar and a complete chef’s kitchen with top of the line appliances, chiseled granite countertops, center island with seating, along with a walk-in pantry. This space is full of light and affords views of the La Plata mountains through a wide bay window. From the kitchen, great room, master bedroom, and laundry room there is access to a 70 ft long Brazilian Teak deck that takes advantage of the southern exposure. This offers the perfect spot for morning coffee while enjoying a panoramic view of the red cliffs, downtown Durango, Perins Peak and the La Plata mountains. A walk up the solid timber oak stairs to the second floor gives access to the two guest bedrooms each with its own in suite full bath. A sitting room looks down on the open great room, leading to a large open game room. Adjacent to the game room there is a full bath, private office, and an exercise/crafts room. The office and exercise/crafts room could both be converted into bedrooms by adding a closet. Other features include: a ten zone solar hydronic in-floor heating system, home theater surround systems, Finnish sauna, custom security system and many others—the attention to detail in this home is second to none. Attached to the home is a 3-car garage with three 10 ft wide overhead doors with separate front and rear exit doors. There is also a control panel for the automatic sprinkler system, a mechanical room for the hydronic solar system and a large storage area above with steel beam stairwell. This property is also complete with an expansive equine set-up with a radiant tube-heated 56 ft x 48 ft barn. It also has a separate tack room with half bath and a workshop area. There is a large loafing shed for hay and equipment storage, an arena and approx. 30 acres fenced. The 1,152 SF 2 bedroom/1 bath apartment above the barn has vaulted ceilings and currently brings in revenue as a VRBO, but would also serve as great quarters for a caretaker. The property has a well that is tapped into an aquifer and it was tested to yield ample premium quality water and irrigation for three dwellings. Properties of this stature are rare let alone the location and the lifestyle it provides.
