Dick Franklin, GREAT EXPECTATIONS DGO REALTY, Cell: (970) 903-5575, email@example.com, www.crenmls.com: This is Durango's preeminent in-town estate. First time on market for this 5340 square foot quintessential contemporary designed by Jon Pomeroy. Its 9.5 acres rests literally on top of the City of Durango. The views down into town and across the unobstructed breadth of the La Plata Mountains, and north into the Animas Valley, are transcendent. This offering brings the kind of privacy that typically resides only on properties with large acreage far from town, but its proximity will provide the new owner with the easiest of year-around access to all that Durango has to offer. The magnificent gardens encircle the home and are superior in all respects, having lovely lawns and decades-old specimen plants and trees throughout. Within the home, large walls of Honduran mahogany and floors of travertine stone highlight architecturally interesting features that combine for a matchless feel and look to this 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath masterpiece. Multiple viewpoint patios take advantage of this landmark property's amazing views. As in every community, there is that rare property, such as this offering, that epitomizes the inimitable, the matchless, the one-of-a-kind. For those prospective buyers who are looking widely for unparalleled property in high-end markets like Telluride, Aspen, and Jackson Hole, take a look at a better value here in Durango. And there are numerous reasons why the town was named the number one "micropolitan" town in all of America. The existing home sits at the northern end of the acreage, and, of course, the new owner may wish for the property to serve as the fine single-home retreat that it has always been. There are options, though, for the undeveloped land to the south, if that is of interest, and as an added bonus, there are latent water rights for many thousands of gallons of free City water. Be sure to ask about all the details.
