About 4398 Highway 172

This peaceful home is located just off the highway and sits on 4-acres. Sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and valleys frame the home in every direction, capturing stunning sunrises and sunsets with glimpses of wildlife roaming across the nearby open landscape. This 4,000+ SQ FT., 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom custom home was featured in Log Home Living magazine, perfect for those who have always dreamed of living in an authentic, one-of-a-kind log home. The home was handcrafted with remarkable attention to detail using extra-large logs of mature Engelmann spruce cut and pieced together in the saddle-notch style of the early frontier. The floors are a mix of Douglas fir, stone tile and premium carpets. The ceilings are tongue and groove aspen, with accents throughout from heritage cottonwoods taken from a nearby family farm. Even the pulls on the blue pine kitchen cabinets are from the apple orchard right outside the back door. Outside, there is a large spring-fed trout pond in front of the house with its own dock, which is also permitted for irrigation use. An apple orchard with over 20 mature trees surrounds the home and draws an abundance of wildlife, including herds of deer and flocks of ducks. In addition to the apple orchard there is a large fenced garden area.



Location and Area

This home is easily accessible to the historic town of Durango, the Durango La Plata county regional airport and Mercy Regional Medical Center. There is an abundance of wildlife including herds of deer and flocks of duck and geese.
