Stuart S Way, The Wells Group of Durango, Inc., C: 970-799-5721, email@example.com, www.crenmls.com: Live in absolute elegance and luxury in the prestigious and gated five lot subdivision of Rockwood Farview. This home is the epitome of craftsmanship and contemporary design. Rocky Mountain Institute worked closely with Aspen Design Company to create the perfectly designed home to harness passive solar energy for this specific lot. Historic Durango is where colorful Colorado collides with the sunset-soaked Southwest. A small mining town rich in history, dining, shopping, and entertainment. Recreation knows no limits here. There are endless trails for hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, four-wheeling, and jeeping. The Animas River runs through the town and is host to fly-fisherman, rafting, kayaking, paddle boarding and tubing! If the river is too fast-moving for you, close by is Haviland Lake, Electra Lake, Vallecito Lake and more for kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, jet skiing, and boating! 15 minutes North of the home is Purgatory Ski Resort; ski over 1,300 acres with 10 lifts, and 94 trails. Nestled between Durango, Purgatory Resort, and The Glacier Club (a World Class Golf Course); the location of this home is what makes it truly special. One of the most beautiful places to live and retire, Durango was voted one of the Best Places to Live by Outside Magazine in 2016. If you ve been looking for your dream home--you ve found it. The home s exterior is a mix of wood and beautiful red stonework. Next to garage is a stucco entrance leading you on landscaped flagstone steps to the front door.
