Welcome to this stunning waterfront home located in a quiet cul-de-sac of The Ranch community, in the picturesque North Animas Valley 10 miles north of Durango and only 15 miles south of Purgatory Ski Resort. Custom-designed and built by Galbraith Builders, this primarily single-level home checks all the boxes, with 3 bedrooms, 3-1/2 baths, chef's kitchen, and expansive great room on the main level, plus a loft/lounge/office area with a 3/4 bath upstairs. Soaring tall ceilings, exposed beams, two-sided stone fireplace, tile flooring, and huge picture windows in the open great room have been thoughtfully planned with attention to detail throughout. The kitchen is spacious in size featuring newer appliances, a large center island, plenty of granite tile counterspace, cherry cabinetry with pull-out shelves and a handy desk area facing the backyard. There are beautiful views out every window, including reflections of the lush landscaping in the water that meanders around 3 sides of the home and includes a lovely waterfall. The open great room currently has a casual eating area plus room for a larger dining area in the adjacent den with built-in bookshelves and entertainment center, or you can arrange it differently to suite your needs, as it is a very versatile space. The powder room off the spacious entry way has a unique copper sink with a rustic flair. The primary bedroom suite on the main level enjoys another great view, a stucco feature wall with custom log shelf, and built-in desk/dresser area. The 5-piece primary bath has two separate vanities, shower, jetted tub, and water closet, plus great custom storage and a large walk-in closet with double doors. A separate hallway leads to two spacious guest bedrooms and offers access to the garage. One guest bedroom also features a custom stucco feature wall while the other is currently being used as a fantastic office with an en-suite 3/4 bath. The oversized 2 car garage has storage closets, workbench space, more great views out the tall windows, and the heated/finished separate laundry room with great storage and a sink. Upstairs you will find an open loft area (room for a sleeper-sofa), a game or office area, and another 3/4 bath, along with a skylight and great attic storage access. The living space upstairs enjoys a unique perspective with pot shelves and artwork nooks overlooking the open floorplan. The exterior materials of stucco, stone and wood continue the natural theme which blends well with the gorgeous mature landscaping. The covered back Trex deck with stone columns overlooks the pond and is a very peaceful setting among the boulders and perennial plants. The home is comfortable with air conditioning and natural gas forced air heat (new furnace installed last year & new hot water heater in last 6 months). Residents at The Ranch enjoy the outdoors, including a tennis/pickleball court, 30 acre wildlife preserve along the Hermosa Creek, trout fishing, irrigation water and secure RV storage area. Enjoy meandering trout streams, mature trees and gardens in a quiet and peaceful environment.
