Five Private Acres with fabulous La Plata Views on this sweet 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home. Lovingly maintained, the home features brand new windows, new wall texture and new paint throughout, new slab granite countertops in kitchen, new backsplash, Bosch EnergyStar dishwasher, stainless appliances with a built-in beverage refrigerator, new interior doors, new Kohler toilets, freshly stained deck and pergola and new cordless wood blinds. On the main floor are the Master bedroom suite with large master bath - big walk-in shower, jetted tub, dual vanities; plus the powder room, and other living space; with two guest bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. Through the garage youll find a great, heated workshop/man cave/teenager room of 220 square feet (included in total measurement). Plenty of outdoor enjoyment with friends possible on the 600 sf deck with fire pit area, as well as the covered wraparound porch. Technically outside the City limits, the home still enjoys natural gas for heat and hot water, central sewer, yet has its own very abundant well with sweet tasting water, which can be used to irrigate up to one acre of the land - perfect for those who wish to garden without the high cost of city water. In fact, the property has established, producing fruit trees - apple, pear, peach, apricot and plum; and all outdoor landscaping is on an automatic drip system. Flowers include rose bushes, lilac bush, tulips, hastas, vinca, purple clematis , and yuccas. A 3 year old front loading LG washer/dryer set is included. WHAT HAVE THE OWNERS LOVED THE BEST? THE VIEW - you feel away from everything when you want to have that private time, but close enough to go do thingsthe beautiful sunsets from our porch how quiet it is up here seeing lots of wildlife. Only a ten minute drive into downtown Durango, 3 minutes to Home Depot. In this small subdivision of only 18 homes and two vacant lots, neighbors are friendly and the HOA payment of $650 per year takes care of the blacktopped roads and snow removal. Individual owners can do their own driveways or hire the person who snowplows the main road. The private entrance gives you roughly 93 yards of blacktopped driveway with guest parking area, plus a 28 yard perfect gravelled space in which to pull an RV. A solid 12 ft by 8 ft storage shed for your toys; and low utilities thanks to abundant use of LED lighting and solar tubes. Average monthly electric bill of $74 over this past year and average natural gas bill of $78 per month. The 5 acre
