Welcome to the Crown Jewel of Vallecito. This exceptional lakeside home is available for the first time in 30 years. Sitting on 1.59 acres at the north end of the lake this property offers views of unparalleled Colorado scenery for miles. This 2,600 square feet rustic redwood home feels like a private lodge in the mountains of Colorado, boasting four bedrooms, 2 car heated garage and 2 bay boat shed. Upstairs you will find the master suite with its walkout deck, full bath as well as a guest suite with its own 3/4 bath. Downstairs, you will find two additional bedrooms which share a full bath, an office, and a 1/2 bath. You can enjoy the beauty of the Valley through the wall of south-facing windows in the grand living room; turn on the gas fireplace during fall and winter to guarantee a cozy evening. Entertain your guests and family in the well-designed open kitchen where meals will be a joyful occasion. This redwood chalet is accessible year-round and consists of three separate lots in the southwest corner of Vallecito Valley Subdivision #1. The San Juan National Forest and Weminuche Wilderness lie north where you can get to the trailheads of Vallecito Creek and Los Pinos River in 15-20 minutes. You also have exclusive access to over 450 linear feet of clear, rushing mountain water from Grimes Creek which borders along the west and south boundaries of this property. The adjacent property to the west is covered by a nature conservancy (conservation easement) and BOR to the south, both protecting this natural scenic open space. Enjoy the endless recreational opportunities the area offers right at your doorstep: backcountry skiing, mountain biking, fishing, to name a few, or take your boat, paddleboard or kayak out on the lake. Visit one of the local restaurants for lunch, or pick up your groceries at the General Store. You will be forty minutes from downtown Durango, yet a world away. Purgatory Resort is just a bit over 1 hr., and Wolf Creek Ski Area just under 2 hrs. Start living the dream and let this home become the background for a lifetime of memories.
