A hidden gem, located in the “banana belt” between Ignacio and Navajo Reservoir, known for plenty of sun, a longer growing season, and warmer winter months. This home, custom built in the 1980s, offers a well thought out floorplan, with lots of comfortable spaces, a huge kitchen with an abundance of storage, phenomenal views out the back covered deck, and a location tucked away from the road for you to enjoy the peace and quiet of country living. Just a short drive from Ignacio and only minutes to Navajo, with 40 acres of privacy, you’ll enjoy some of the prettiest views overlooking the valley and the mountains. The home has 2,218 square feet of living space, with 3 spacious bedrooms plus a 4th room that could easily be a bedroom or an office. A cozy den that opens to the large kitchen and looks out to the covered back deck, makes for a great space to enjoy while the cook is entertaining in the bright and open kitchen. Kitchen offers loads of cabinet space, a pantry, and a beautiful breakfast nook that looks out to the eastern mountain views. A spacious, more formal living room and dining room make for easy entertaining for large family gatherings with lots of natural light. Down the hall are three bedrooms and a hall bath. The large primary bedroom has an office or reading nook, three closets, and a large bathroom. On the other end of the home is the 4th bedroom or office, more closet space, and a nice sized laundry room, and access to the two-car garage. There is a shed outside that is perfectly set up for a wood shop, plus an extra shed for the yard equipment. A single wide will remain on the property as well, the remodel started, needs fresh carpet and paint, great for a studio, storage, or guest space. This home sits up high for beautiful sunset and sunrises, views of the pasture below, and some of the most beautiful rock formations to enjoy. Domestic water is through a natural spring which also feeds the yard sprinklers. This property is great for a commuter to Durango, Bayfield, or Pagosa, with a great location close to the lake for weekend fun.
