When you drive into this property, you will find yourself in a hidden paradise. This 4,000+ sq. ft., 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom custom home was featured in Log Home Living magazine. It is set on four tree filled acres and is surrounded by large plots of open land. It is owned, and was built by, one of the areas most sought after log home builders, and is perfect for those who have always dreamed of living in an authentic, one-of-a kind log home. It has never been on the market before. This home was handcrafted with extra-large logs of mature Engelmann Spruce in the saddle-notch style of the early frontier. But this is no homesteaders cabin. The build quality of this home is superb, with remarkable attention to detail. The floors are a mix of Douglas fir, stone tile and premium carpets. The ceilings are tongue & groove Aspen, and there are accents throughout from heritage cottonwoods taken from a nearby family farm. Even the handles on the blue pine kitchen cabinets are from the apple orchard right outside the back door.

Upon entering the main level you will be enamored by the imposing 15 wide, two-story moss rock fireplace with hearth in the living room. Turn around and there is a wall-of-windows looking out onto the property and the apple orchard. In fact, every window in this home has a view of the property or of the nearby La Plata Mountains. In the kitchen youll find an open space with plenty of counters and custom cabinetry accented by blue Mexican tiles with inlays. Above the stove is a unique spinning pot hanger made from an ancient wagon wheel. There is an eat-in kitchen bar, plus a dining area with access to the back deck. Down the hall are two large guest bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and extra-large windows. There is a full bath, laundry area and pantry closet. The upper level contains the grandiose master bedroom and bath, with its own private deck. A stairway leads to a loft over the master bedroom, which is used as a private reading area/arts & crafts room. Downstairs is a bonus finished walk-out basement consisting of a game room, bathroom, two guest rooms, exercise area, pantry, and an efficient wood stove. The game room is an open slate and could be converted into a theatre, kids play area, or any number of different uses. The entire home is heated with in-floor radiant heat.

Outside, there is a large spring-fed trout pond in front of the house with its own dock, which is also permitted for irrigation use. An apple orchard of over 20 mature trees surrounds the home and draws an abundance of wildlife including herds of deer and flocks of duck and geese. For green thumbs, there is a large fenced garden area. Additionally, there is a custom log wood shed and a board & batten style animal shed. The well for this property is abundant and the water tastes great. This home is easily accessible to historic town of Durango, the Durango La Plata county regional airport and Mercy Regional Medical Center. This is a home of exceptional character, top quality construction, and its close to a great town and all the joys of the American Southwest.
