705 Animosa Drive

Newly renovated home on rare waterfront acreage in the midst of one of the most picturesque valleys in all of the West! If Durango, Colorado is one of your favorite places, then the stunning red cliffs of the Animas River Valley are surely forefront in your memories of this famous mountain town among its many awe-inspiring and breathtaking views. The Animas River and its glacial valley are notable for both the serene dramatic setting of meandering glassy waters framed by lush foliage and mountainous red cliffs, and in their capacity to transition your senses from the high-desert of the southwest to the cool high-Alpine and rugged peaks of the San Juan Mountains. For many, this river valley has come to symbolize the totality of feeling and spirit that make up “life in the mountains.” This rich bottomland setting is home to this multi-acre site and its well-conceived home renovation begun in 2013. The home backs Hermosa Creek with some of the finest views of the valley and its lush landscape with diverse and ever-changing foliage are omnipresent to the experience of this residence. The current owners have lovingly developed the existing home, its outbuildings, guest home, gardens and landscaping leaving only the facade of the main home to complete your vision of the ultimate valley estate. Plans and specifications for that final piece of the remodel as well as some of the finishing touches to the interior are readily available to the buyer. Though the setting is reminiscent of the valley’s agrarian and ranching roots, this small enclave of estate homes enjoy rational HOA governance as well as a common swimming pond for your stocked fishing, paddling or other recreational enjoyment and plentiful access to area trails and amenities. Located a mere nine miles from downtown Durango, and just 16 miles from Purgatory Ski Resort, this residence is at the epicenter of Durango adventure. Mountain biking, hiking, skiing, backpacking, camping and countless other activities are in the immediate vicinity of your back door. Ask your real estate broker to provide the complete list of features and amenities attached to this listing. A few of the notable features include: $300k in phased remodeling already completed; Upstairs fully remodeled to include 4 bedroom additional to the main-level master; Completely new kitchen in 2014 by Buena Vista Builders with walk-in pantry, stainless steel appliances including wall oven and Advantium microwave/convection oven, 5-burner cook-top with down-draft exhaust vent to the exterior, kitchen island with quartz countertops.
