Colorado has long been a destination of escape for those seeking a rustic haven away from it all. Paying homage to this tradition – with a five-star twist – is a stunning custom log cabin-style estate perched on top of a land peninsula in a private, gated community that unfolds to dramatic mountain scenes in every direction.
The home of over 10,200 square feet is an impressive expression of the mountain design aesthetic, celebrating the majestic alpine surroundings.
From the moment you step through the dramatic entrance, floor-to-ceiling windows in the distance capture the snow-capped peaks of the San Juan Mountain Range. Each level and room of the property offers scenic vistas of iconic landmarks and postcard-worthy sights of Durango, Colorado. Plentiful entertaining spaces span from indoors to out, allowing you to always be connected to nature. A thoughtful floorplan lends itself to massive entertaining while also satisfying the need for cozy, quiet, and private evenings. A generous collection of amenities make the home an ideal getaway for multiple generations of families or friends to gather together: home gym, wine cellar, and card room, wet bar and billiards room, private study/home office, and five bedrooms, including an expansive guest wing. An elevator connects all of the levels. One-of-a-kind details and sophisticated features make the home a joy to experience every day, between the upgraded sound and security systems, radiant in-floor heat, custom plumbing, and lighting fixtures, hand-forged custom metal work, and hand-hewn support beams. The construction of the home is accentuated by 20 logs throughout with ceiling heights spanning from 9 to 30 feet.
Situated near Purgatory Ski Resort and just minutes from historic downtown, this estate serves as a basecamp for all of the adventures the region offers, every season. A sought-after location within the private and desirable community known as Two Dogs places the estate on nearly 4.5 acres bordering open public lands. The community was carefully developed to preserve the privacy of each owner as well as the views. Common services are provided to owners including main road plowing, trash, and water/sewer.
Currently being offered fully furnished with designer furniture and curated luxury selections, the residence allows you to move in right away and start enjoying the Durango lifestyle that awaits you in this spacious, gracious mountain masterpiece. Designed to be low-maintenance and instill a sense of peace of mind, this residence is a prized and rare offering not to be missed.
