Property Description

Discover unparalleled comfort, stunning natural surroundings, and meticulous attention to detail in this beautifully appointed creekside home. Nestled near the serene Columbine Lake and just 2 miles from Purgatory Ski area, this exquisite property in the pines spans almost 2 private acres and offers views of Engineer Mountain coupled with rare water frontage along Little Cascade Creek, where you can listen to the sounds of the rushing water as you drift to sleep. The home features two water heaters (one tankless) with in-floor radiant heat on the lower level and radiant baseboard heating on the upper levels, ensuring warmth and comfort. The overall architectural design of the home reflects the mining history of the area as evidenced by local historical society photographs. Elegant oak hardwood flooring graces the main and upper levels, while the lower level boasts durable tile flooring. The kitchen is a chef's dream, equipped with Bosch appliances, including a gas range and microwave, and sleek quartz countertops. Recessed channel lights illuminate barnwood floating shelves, adding a rustic yet contemporary touch to the interior. The living spaces are equally impressive, with a wood-burning fireplace featuring a river rock surround and vaulted ceiling in the living room, and a gas fireplace on the lower level with pool table and door leading out the new 8-person hot tub with bluetooth capability. A large cantilevered deck over the creek, complete with composite decking, a firepit, bar nestled along the overlook railing, and new patio furniture provides the perfect setting for outdoor relaxation and entertaining. This fully furnished home, designed by renowned interior designer Lisa Garvet, seamlessly blends rustic charm with modern luxury. The primary suite on the second level offers a private deck overlooking the creek, a spa-like bath with a custom rock wall, double sinks with quartz counters, Victoria + Albert volcanic limestone vessel sinks and soaking tub, a glass tile backsplash, and a shower with bench. Additional bedrooms include another king bedroom on this level, and a kids' room with bunk beds and a queen bed on the third level, and a lower level king bedroom with adjacent bath, each room with its own thermostat control and TV. The hall bath features a barnwood vanity, copper sinks, and a custom tile surround, while a half bath on the main level boasts a copper sink and barnwood accents. The lower level includes a 3/4 bath with a cedar sauna and a new hot tub. Practical amenities include a laundry room with a utility sink and a second fridge, spacious storage, a water softener, two tankless water heaters, and a new boiler installed in 2024. Starlink internet ensures reliable connectivity, and the property features a housekeeping closet, owner's lockoff, closet, and spacious utility room. Outdoor features include a large composite deck with a firepit and bar, and an outdoor gas firepit area surrounded by log benches, a perfect place for evening s'mores and storytelling. There is also direct access leading to the creek from a path on the property. This home is currently a vacation rental with projected annual rental revenue of $120,000, this property is ideal for year-round living, part-time residence, or as a high-income earning vacation rental. HOA fees are only $770/year for road maintenance and $240/year for trash. Property taxes are significantly lower since this is outside of the Durango Mountain Master Association (yet only minutes away from all of the recreational amenities!). Adventure awaits with nearby hiking, fishing, mountain biking, skiing, snowshoeing, & paddleboarding! The metal roof is low maintenance, easily sheds snow naturally. The entire exterior has been repainted in June 2024 - new exterior photos are coming soon. Property has been pre-inspected. Driveway snow removal was $320 for the 2023/2024 winter season. Showings begin on 6/29. See the Matterport virtual tour.
