1553 W 2nd Avenue Durango CO Real Estate
This historic residence on a corner lot in the heart of the beautiful west-side neighborhood is an opportunity you get once. Of the sought-after original neighborhoods in Durango, this area is among the top, and perhaps the best, with its proximity to some of the most popular hiking and mountain biking trails in the region, walkable and bikeable to downtown Durango, and right across from Durango's most popular amenity, the Animas River and River Trail. In addition, one of Durango's most beloved neighborhood parks serves as both a view corridor and feature of property just across the street. This home is ideally connected to all of the best Durango has to offer, from recreational amenities, to Durango's beloved restaurants and shops and the immediacy of the great outdoors within a short walk. The home has been lovingly restored from its late 1800s origins and kept in pristine condition, continuously upgraded through many years, recently with all-new kitchen, bathrooms, plumbing, electrical, heating, energy-efficient windows, landscaping, sprinkler system, driveway, and sidewalks, and in 2021 improvements included a new roof, new attic insulation, and a new separate heated garage that is wired for e-vehicle charging. Natural hardwood floors throughout accompany other period-relevant finish materials throughout the exceptional floorplan, which includes two masters, one on the main level and the second upstairs. Both master bathrooms feature walk-in tile showers, double sink vanities with marble counters, and heated floors with separate thermostats. The living room is stubbed for a gas fireplace if one desires to add an additional touch. Other features include beautiful chandeliers, high ceilings, pocket doors separating the living and dining rooms, modern kitchen with quartz counters and wood butcher-block island, and an original stained glass window in the beautiful oak stair landing. If you already live in Durango, or it is a place where you aspire to spend substantial time, this is the quintessential Durango home and experience, and it's likely to have a short time on the market.
