Immaculate, elegant, sustainable, private, and peaceful is the perfect description for this legacy ranch that has been given extraordinary love and attention to detail. Ideally situated on the border of Montezuma and La Plata counties in a wide rolling valley with expansive views, this 70-acre property is located in a private setting with access through a high-security double-gated sub-division entrance. The 70-acres consists of two 35-acre parcels. Each has a private well and can be sold separately. In addition, the vacant 35-acre parcel allows for two single-family homes and outbuildings to be built. The custom-designed primary log residence exudes quality and luxurious features while maintaining the feel of casual elegance. Each log has been hand-selected, hand-scribed, and coped to fit. Specially chosen stone surrounds the base of the home as well as the entire chimney, plus it has a redwood deck and a covered front porch. Experience an immediate feeling of serenity as you walk into this light-filled 6055 sq. ft. log home with high-end finishes throughout, radiant floor heating, featuring 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 4 walk-in closets, great room, a chef's kitchen, walk-in pantry, laundry room, plus an open basement. Every detail has been thought out in the design and layout of this property. The vaulted ceiling and exposed log beams add warmth and a feeling of expansiveness. The perfectly sized modern kitchen includes white quartz countertops, a large center island with cabinetry on both sides, top-of-the-line stainless steel LG appliances, 5 gas burner stove, access to the back and side patios. The living area encompasses a stone-stacked wood-burning fireplace with a gas starter, creating the perfect amount of ambiance and warmth on those cold winter nights. The prominent owner's suite is on the main level with a jetted tub in the master bathroom, with access to a covered back deck; Just steps away is a Marquis ATV 14 Sport Swim Spa with Jacuzzi seats. Adding to the space and square footage of the home is the 2280 sq. ft. basement, currently being used as an indoor gym and for storage. This space is very flexible and can easily be converted to additional bedrooms, bathrooms, a game room, or a home theater. An attached heated oversized 1183 sq. ft. 3-car garage includes epoxy flooring, a tiled raised dog washing station, plus extra space for recreational vehicles and storage/workbenches. In addition to the primary residence, there is a heated board and batten barn complete with 1 stall, a tack room, equipment/hay storage, paddock, full laundry room, and an upstairs 1 bedroom/ 1 bath apartment with private balcony and wood pellet stove. Adding to the attractiveness of this property is a heated 1,200 SF RV garage/workshop. There is also a 60'x120' outdoor riding arena located steps away from the home and barn. The property has meadows with abundant wildflowers, scattered gamble oak and pines, backing up to thousands of acres of BLM land for amazing trail riding, and is roughly 2 miles from the San Juan National Forest with over 2 million acres to explore. In addition, the HOA also provides exclusive private access to 10,000 acres of Menefee Wilderness. While created for privacy, you are still only minutes from conveniences, 10 minutes to Mancos, and only 25 minutes to downtown Durango. You are also centrally located for incredible skiing at Telluride and Purgatory Resort and 30 minutes from fishing in the Dolores River or boating on McPhee Reservoir. Move-in ready, priced to sell. Most furnishings are available for separate purchase.
