825 E 3rd Avenue

A very rare opportunity to own one of historic Durango’s premier character homes... Welcome to 825 East 3rd Avenue. For the discerning buyer who appreciates a prime lifestyle location and owning that "once in a life time" notable property, this 1908 American Four Square classic offers the unique detailing that only period homes offer, but with all the expensive updating expected of a modern home completed. Still showcasing many of the original features in the windows, pocket doors, trim work, shelving and flooring, this home offers distinctly high ceilings throughout, large windows and a surprisingly open floor plan with spacious rooms. If you’ve ever strolled the East 3rd Avenue Boulevard, you couldn’t possibly have missed this porch: large enough to entertain a party but cozy enough for an intimate glass of wine after work, this classic Four Square covered porch spans the width of the house and is one of its grandest features. You’ll be sold on this quintessential home the minute you walk on to it. MAIN LEVEL: The entry way heralds a time gone by, with a large foyer and central stair case elegantly crafted out of wood. To the right, you’ll find the main level master bedroom option, currently used as an office and enjoying beautiful views of the front yard. This potential en suite first floor bedroom has a completely updated three quarter bathroom. Off the foyer to the left is a beautiful sitting room, complete with almost 11‘ ceilings and original windows neatly framed in beautiful wood trim. Continuing on, you’ll pass a grand dining room graced with 11’ ceilings, and open to its right, a hearth room with still more character... a fireplace, and the perfect balance of handcrafted wood beams, trim and molding inspire one to stop and slowly take in the details. Opening to the dining area is a newly remodeled kitchen with all the modern appointments you’d expect in a home of this quality. Gorgeous custom cabinetry, solid stone surfaces and big windows create an inviting environment to indulge the culinary artist in you. A large pantry affords extra storage, and a breakfast nook overlooks the water fountain and back yard gardens through oversized corner windows. UPSTAIRS: The grand old staircase takes you to the 2nd floor, where an original bench seat welcomes you for a rest. There are three well sized bedrooms on this floor and a handsomely updated bathroom, complete with custom cabinetry, tile and a 2 sided glass shower. The 2 smaller bedrooms feature the preserved character traits you’d hope for: dormered nooks and interesting historic detail that tell of a time long past but beautifully preserved. The largest bedroom, currently used as a master suite, has a large walk in closet and built ins, as well as direct access to the bathroom. Large windows bring mother nature and lovely light in to this east facing bedroom. LOWER LEVEL: The lowest level of the home, an easy to access basement that spans the footprint of the house, is not to be overlooked as it offers an extraordinary amount of full head height storage, comfortably houses all the mechanicals, features a cedar storage closet, and even has a climate appropriate storage nook for your wine and good chocolate. OUTSIDE: Off the kitchen, a covered patio area pleasingly overlooks a mature garden, with perennials, trees, and a sizable water feature. The perfect environment for a night cap or entertaining friends & family, the backyard also has privacy fencing. Detached with separate alley access, there is a ground level studio apartment, complete with a 3/4 bath and most recently used as a guest house & art studio. The large two car garage is a big bonus in busy downtown Durango, not only offering off street parking, but plenty of storage. Buyers seeking the Best of the Best, the most unique offering in historic Durango need look no further...discovering the variety of wonders and well preserved details of this very special home will take many visits. By appointment only.
