Rancho del Lago - A spectacular horse property just 12 minutes to downtown Durango. This Turtle Lake property is unlike any other set in a gorgeous meadow with majestic views of the surrounding mountain benches, unique rock outcroppings, and Colorado bluebird skies. The usable 20 acres showcase a main residence, guesthouse, over-sized two-car garage, barn, loafing shed and greenhouses.
The exterior of the homes incorporates a gorgeous mix of corrugated metal, stone and reclaimed barn wood creating the quintessential Colorado mountain estate. The grounds are fenced and cross fenced and include gorgeous landscaping around the house with woodlands, aspens, cottonwoods and healthy pastures beyond.
Step inside the 3,104 square foot main home and your attention is drawn to views out the floor-to-ceiling windows. Make your way into the grand living room with cathedral ceilings that maximize the picturesque Colorado views. The stately wood burning stone fireplace, hardwood floors and exposed wood trusses create a cozy spot to relax with friends and family.
The open kitchen and dining room overlook the living area creating the ideal entertaining environment. The gourmet's kitchen features a double oven, 6-burner gas range top, quartzite counters, farmhouse sink, stainless steel appliances and an island with bar seating. Located just off the kitchen is a true mudroom with a door to the outside to remove muddy boots and clean up at the utility sink. The private master suite is located on the opposite side of the main level with a gas fireplace, private walk-out patio and big master closet with built-in shelving. The en-suite bath features Spanish-style detailing, dual vanity, soaking tub and separate shower. There is also a small office off the master.
Upstairs is an additional loft living room, craft room, and bedrooms 2 and 3 each with their own private bath. The detached garage can be accessed from the house via the covered breezeway. A short walk from the main house, the guest house features a space currently used as an additional garage /storage area that could easily be converted to horse stables. The 1,226 square foot interior features an open kitchen and living space, full bath with laundry, a large master bedroom and two bedrooms on the upper level.
Ample water rights are included. Access to thousands of acres of National Forest are within minutes; the Colorado Trailhead is right up the road.
