Property Description

SOLAR "green" handcrafted LOG home on 19.79 acres bordering National Forest. Solar system produces up to 90% of the home's energy needs. Two bedroom home, plus loft, is nestled among towering Ponderosa Pines in secluded setting behind security gate. Property straddles La Plata and Archuleta Counties. Well-maintained traditional log home features vaulted wood ceilings and knife peeled logs enriched with hand-rubbed natural oil finish. Cabin with luxuries of well-appointed kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, 3 sub-zero under counter refrigerators and 1 sub-zero under counter freezer, PLUS chest freezer in carport right outside kitchen. Carpets cleaned recently. Sunken boiler-heated HOT TUB on expansive deck offer plenty of relaxation in the woods. Enjoy isolation, yet stay connected between the mountain communities of Durango and Pagosa Springs. No more than one hour door-to-door to Wolf Creek Ski Area and Purgatory Ski Resort. Remodeled in 2011 and re-chinked and hand stained exterior in 2019. LOTS OFSTORAGE AND COVERED PARKING in 2-bay carport connected to home, 1-bay workshop/detached garage with office, 2-bay lean-to tractor storage with shelves and electricity, RV parking pad with electricity and water nearby, and concrete foundation with plans for 50x80garage/barn. Solar hydronic system on cabin heats water for in-floor heat and hot water heater, plus solar panels on garage produce electricity for total OFF-GRID LIVING, backed up by propane generator and wood stove as alternate heating and power sources. Triple-redundant system! Current owner uses cell phone "hot spot" for internet, but house is hard-wired with land line and neighbors use Centurylink for wide-band internet and video streaming. SEPTIC is permitted for 3 bedrooms, although Assessor indicates 2 bedrooms, so potential to enclose loft or build-out guest quarters in garage with office that already has water, electricity and heated with propane heater. Buyer to verify options. Annual utility cost is roughly ONLY $500/year for propane. Interior paint is natural log.
