208 Cima Vista Way

Colorado, La Plata County, Durango – MLS 739308

Nestled on its own hillside at the end of a cul-de-sac only 9 miles from downtown Durango, this Dyerbilt custom home is a masterpiece to behold. Located in the lower foothills of the La Plata Mountains at an elevation of 7,500 feet, views include Lake Nighthorse, the snowcapped Continental Divide as well as your very own La Platas. The views are gorgeous in every direction you gaze. Imagine your own 43+ acre preserve with almost no rooftops to look at, just the abundant wildlife and brilliant sunrises and sunsets, yet 15 minutes to town.

This custom home offers everything you need on the MAIN LEVEL, including master bedroom suite, living/family room, open kitchen, dining, office/den, powder room, pantry and spacious laundry room. The huge kitchen has solid granite slab counters with under-mount sinks, GE Monogram appliances including 6 burner dual fuel range and 53 bottle wine cooler. The large master suite has a gas fireplace and sitting area, and a spacious bathroom with heated floor, his and her vanities, and a huge custom walk-in closet with built-in drawers and shoe racks. Outside the bedroom is your private patio for a nice cup of coffee while reading the paper and listening to music from one of 6 different speaker zones. The den/office has beautiful built-ins including adjustable shelves, credenza and a custom work area and gun case.

Upstairs is the “other” living area for guests, the kids, or the parents. Both upstairs bedrooms are spacious with their own bathrooms and are served by a functioning kitchenette and media room that could convert to a playroom, hobby room or exercise room.

The oversized and heated 3 car garage has built-in cabinets with work bench, a dog wash and an alcove for your outdoor gear or exercise equipment. The exterior boasts hand chiseled Telluride Stone that is dry stacked, professional landscaping with stone bridge, and an in-ground 4 zone sprinkler system. With a covered back porch facing east, and a covered front porch facing west, there are multiple opportunities to enjoy the outdoors from sunrise to sunset.

3 central water taps provided by Lake Durango/Nighthorse make this property truly unique. The 2 extra taps provide the option to build extra residences or to subdivide into three separate parcels. If having your own private preserve is important, you could consider a conservation easement that would provide a big tax break while preserving a wildlife refuge matching neighbors to the west.
