Astonishing Home Overlooking Durango
Nestled on almost four acres of land in the secluded, gated community of Far View Estates, this “Tuscan villa-like” home is located within minutes by car, an easy bike ride, or a long walk from downtown Durango and provides striking views of Perins Peak. Within easy walking distance of Hillcrest Golf Course and the Fort Lewis Concert Hall, you can also get a magnificent view of this special home and its stunning roof line from the “Lions Den” on Rim Drive.
Meander through an intimately designed entryway and private courtyard, leading you into the foyer and great room, the attention to detail is everywhere you look and in everything you see. Brought to life by the Durango dream team of architect, Jon Pomeroy and builder,Tom Gorton, this home features Italian porcelain tiled floors and hand painted accent pieces, which keep the home cool in the summer and radiate heat in the winter. Sweep your gaze across the rooms to the soaring tower, architectural arches, faux painting, and Venetian plaster as accents in addition to the alderwood doors, wrought iron railings, rounding out the the villa style.
You’ll find the expansive master bedroom has it’s own door to the west terrace, and is adjacent to a private patio reminiscent of a “grotto” for your morning sun. A five piece master ensuite delights, with dual vanity, Italian travertine tiled countertop, a jetted tub flanked by large windows giving you the feel of bathing outdoors, european glass shower and an oversized walk-in closet. Across from the master suite is a first floor office with built-in solid wood bookcase, built-in filing cabinets, as well as large windows peering out to the water feature. As you wander upstairs to the gallery, head right towards two spacious bedrooms complete with their own large walk-in closets, jack-and-jill bathroom with separate commode rooms. The eastern facing bedroom has built in window seats to take in the mornin g rising sun, while the western facing one has a balcony to enjoy the ever-changing sunset and dramatic lighting shows.
