Whether planning to spend quiet times of peaceful privacy or entertain guests, this single-level home, designed by Durango architect, Laurie Anderson, is designed for enjoyment to the fullest. Expansive views of Lake Nighthorse and surrounding valley, Needles Mountains, and end-of-road, 'top of the rim' location provide a comforting setting that is challenging to match in this desirable Shenandoah Estates, large-acreage subdivision. The stellar views are not only seen from the living room, dining room, and primary bedroom, but also from the rear deck that spans the entire length of the home, as well as the sitting area on the patio with outdoor rock fireplace, creating ambience and multiple options for outdoor enjoyment. The 3.1 acre lot extends down the hill to the road, making it very likely that the unobstructed views will remain as beautiful as they appear today. The open floor plan that includes the foyer, great room, dining room and kitchen, offers elegance, ease of use, convenience and flexibility. The great room is adorned with large, exposed pine timber beams at the cathedral ceiling, access to the deck and tremendous views to the East through windows as high as sixteen feet. A two-sided gas fireplace separates the great room and a dining room. The dining room includes a wet bar with sink and ice maker, as well as butler service area. The considerably large kitchen is replete with granite countertops, two ovens, range top and appliances to satisfy the discerning home chef. The primary bedroom suite, located at the end of the hall, is spacious and inviting, with gas fireplace surrounded by river rock, access to the deck, and a large, full bath with dual vanities, jetted tub, walk-in shower and enormous closet with ample room. Additional bedrooms are separated by a large, full bath with separate vanity areas for privacy and function. One of the bedrooms has an oversized closet, while the other boasts a built-in Murphy bed and desk for home office to guest room flexibility. A large utility 'mud room' between the 3-car garage and kitchen offers convenience with laundry, storage and service sink. Easy access to backyard landscaping is provided via a walk-though door at rear of garage and vehicle-width gate to the side. Special features range from the hand-hammered copper lavatory in the powder room, to hardwood hickory and slate flooring, outdoor electric and gas service ready to add hot tub and gas grill, to a water collection system for irrigating decorative trees that includes a cistern and solar-powered pump. Guests arriving for a visit will experience inviting comfort stepping from the paved circular driveway to the raised slate front porch and pine timber architecture of the home entry. Once inside the front door, the open floor plan and panoramic views draw visitors in to an enjoyable and comfortable experience worthy of relaxing appreciation.
