A home like this doesn't come along very often, not to mention a good producing vacation rental.If you're interested in a residence in the Durango area, the Animas Valley is likely the epicenter of your imagination, a lush and extraordinary glacial valley populated by some of the most beautiful scenery in all of the West. Amidst the storied patchwork of ranches and orchards there are a few exceptionally gifted parcels and this is one of them. Set adjacent to open space, and amidst a mature orchard of apricot, cherry and apple trees, you'll find a residence with legacy implications of the highest order. The Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad runs right by the home. The whole home can be rented with the lower level having its own kitchen with granite counterops, living room with rock fireplace, and nice patio space. These levels are also all connected by a staircase and can be utilized as one large residence. As such, revenues at this home are higher than other homes in the area. The home also hosts an additional oversized and over-garage guest bedroom suite / bonus room with its own deck space and private amenities. Surrounded by mature and fully irrigated and exquisite landscaping, this residence offers an abundance of flexible square footage at a very desirable value. There are five bedrooms in the main part of the residence, which includes the lower-level mother-in-law quarters or guest suite, and spacious outdoor living spaces and decks from every part of the home. Additionally, the oversized garage and shop space has another large guest suite above which is ideal as a media space, workout facility, and additional sleeping quarters with wet bar and separate bath and shower. This suite is also integrated into the main home and connected by a short hallway, or it can be locked off. The kitchen has been fully remodeled with granite counters, with high-end appliances and finishes. Interested parties may want to explore the plans the current owner has to open the kitchen to create a true great room on the main level. The second level also offers a loft overlooking the main living area and two story stone fireplace framed by large windows overlooking the orchard and amazing views. Though this home is replete with features, ample living areas inside and plenty of square footage for nearly any family and their guests, it's the incredible outdoor space where you'll likely spend most of your time. The home offers a private courtyard setting with a flagstone patio, festive string lighting, a large like-new hot tub
