105 Two Dogs Trail – SOLD (2016)

Colorado, La Plata County, Durango – MLS 716704

A rare gem sitting adjacent to the Purgatory Resort area, this one-of-a-kind 4,187 SF single story custom log home on 3.66-acres is the essence of tranquility and privacy. Perched on a wooded lot in the exclusive Two Dogs community, the fully furnished 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath retreat previously featured in Cowboys and Indians magazine, reflects the surrounding area’s natural beauty, elegance and rustic warmth throughout. From stacked stone fireplaces, slate and marble tile to granite slab counters and hand-scraped standing spruce, this mountain home is meticulously crafted with excellence and attention to detail. Expansive floor to ceiling windows capture the magnitude of the surrounding natural forest while providing magnificent views of Castle Rock and the Hermosa Cliffs. Radiant floor heating throughout provides warmth in the winter, while hand-cranked custom windows allow for summer’s high mountain breeze.

The home also features a large chef’s kitchen and custom accents, hand-forged ironwork and high-end fixtures throughout. The acreage is predominately forested with large Colorado blue spruce, Douglas firs, pines and aspen trees. This is the ideal Colorado retreat with easy access to Purgatory Resort, The Glacier Club and historic downtown Durango.
