929 E 3rd Avenue

The historic Newman home was built in 1881 for Charles Newman, an important businessman and politician, owner of drugstores and mines in Southwest Colorado. The Italianate style of architecture is evident in the vertically dominant windows and trim detailing which have been maintained and restored, the free-flowing interior passageways between rooms and the multiple family gathering spaces. This home is located on 3rd Avenue, also known as the Boulevard and is central to downtown Durango. The home was lovingly remodeled over the last 10 years mixing the charm of the Victorian age with the convenience of the modern world. From the street the home looks quaint with its rounded porch and iron fenced yard. As you move into the home you are greeted by open rooms with large windows (many with the period glass). The original wood floor and steam heating system have been preserved and add to the beauty of the home. The kitchen area is at the heart of the home filled with light, it has a butcher block island and a bay window for reading. A door to the north goes to a landscaped yard area with decking and a hot tub. A door to the south goes to a patio with an area for a grill. The master bedroom looks out over the front porch and has a large well-planned walk-in closet with a place for everything. Hidden in the basement of the home is an inviting family/media room and a cozy wine cellar. Upstairs is a second master suite, currently used as two bedrooms and a nice sized bath with a stairway to a bonus rooftop patio. New to the home and build in 2017 is a laundry room with a glass breezeway and mud room area that enters in to the new 3 car garage. The home has 7 off-street parking places in total. Above the garage is the one-bedroom guest house which is a great room design and has its own deck area. The home is walkable to downtown Durango making it easy to enjoy all the wonderful goings on like the many festivals and entertainment as well as walking to diner or breakfast. The home will be shown by appointment only. If you have been hoping to find a home in the historic area of Durango, do not miss this opportunity.
