Sotheby's International Realty - Durango, CO
Perfectly situated to take advantage of spectacular views out every window, this custom home in Engineer Village is a dream come true. Built by award winning builder Ron Enge of Summit Custom Homes, no detail was missed. Four bedrooms plus a game room/caretaker suite and separate office provide plenty of space for family and friends that want to play and live in the mountains.
The "Parade of Homes" award-winning gourmet kitchen has it all: HUGE granite slab island with bar stools for 8, two dishwashers, wine fridge, deep farm sink, vegetable sink, pot filler faucet, 6 burner gas range, double ovens, custom copper range hood and cherry cabinets. The main level features floor to ceiling moss rock wood burning fireplace with soaring cathedral ceiling, floor to ceiling wall of windows which frame Engineer Mountain. Clearly the heart of the home! Tucked behind the fireplace is another wine fridge, bar sink and cozy wine tasting area.
Main level master suite features a gas fireplace, french doors that open up to the custom patio. The 5 piece master bath is a delight; granite counters, granite counter on the dressing table, travertine tile around the tub decking, travertine wainscotting, custom tile shower with built in bench, 4 separate jets and a rain showerhead. Also on the main level is one of three laundry rooms (with granite counter and cherry cabinets!), guest bath with Japanese soaking tub, guest bedroom, media room and access to the oversized 3 car garage.
Follow the exquisite custom carved handrail and hardwood floors upstairs to the office loft which looks down on the great room and out to the mountains. Another full master bedroom, mirror image of the one downstairs, with gas fireplace and magnificent master bath makes this a perfect getaway for two couples. The quaint bunk room lets all the kids be together with their own bathroom. And just down the hall is the game room/caretakers quarters with pool table, kitchenette, 3/4 bath and the 2nd of 3 sets of washer/dryers. The home has central vac, water softener and alarm system. Adding the second lot provides extra outdoor living with an expansive deck, built in BBQ, tiered lawns and a cozy fire pit.

Owners have access to the private owners club, fitness room, game room, pool and spa located in Purgatory Lodge. This is truly one of the most unique and spectacular homes at Purgatory Resort.
