This artistically designed contemporary home has such a unique style and feel to it that it truly is a must see. Only 20 minutes outside of Durango, it is set on 20 spacious acres of gently rolling hills, with pinon, oak and juniper. The patio and the vast living room windows have an unobstructed panoramic view overlooking the majestic La Plata Mountains. Living here you pass through either Wildcat Canyon or Lake Nighthorse byway on your way to Durango. The majestic La Platas are laden with gorgeous snowmelt waterfalls and many renown flyfishing spots on the Animas River. After decades of work, and a $560 million dollar project, Lake Nighthorse has finally opened up to the public and boasts boating, swimming, and fishing. You would also be just minutes away from La Plata Canyon, Red Mesa and Farmington NM. This one-of-a-kind, geometric-styled home has a superior open living area with enormously high ceilings that feel as spacious as the vast, beautiful views that bless the endlessly interesting windows throughout the house. It has 3 light and airy bedrooms and 1 and baths, with tongue-and-groove ceiling, accented with rustic cut beams and terra cotta stained concrete floors throughout the house. The main floor of the house is an open floor plan with a modern feel to it. In the middle of the living area there is a gorgeous wrought iron spiral staircase leading to the upper level. French doors open to the master suite that includes a readily organized walk-in closet, and a full bath with an antique, freestanding claw foot tub, surrounded by ceramic tile. A bath off the main living space has a walk-in shower with glass bricks. Directly below the loft is a charming, large dining room area that seamlessly spills into the roomy living room and kitchen areas. The window filled kitchen has a lovely rustic horseshoe shaped tiled bar offering lots of work and storage space, as well as a built in electric range and a convenient double stainless steel sink. There is also a spacious walk-in pantry with washer/dryer. You will be warm and cozy here with in-floor heating, a compact wood stove. And the foot-thick ice block walls and passive solar windows will also keep you cool in the summer. There is a large, insulated 2-car garage with a bonus room above it, a tool shed, and a large 3 room clean shed that has endless possibilities. The fenced garden and numerous shade and fruit trees are supported by a drip irrigation system.
