Built on possibly the best lot in The Meadows this custom Cedar Log Home sits away from the road and offers grand views and privacy. The entry path leads past large shade trees and green lawn to a covered deck and nearby covered patio. Upon entering the great room you'll marvel at the high ceilings, exposed log beams, a new bamboo hardwood floor as well as the high efficiency wood stove which makes for cozy winter evenings. Horses are welcome on this 3 acre irrigated parcel and the pasture is fenced by a cedar split-rail fence. Well insulated, the Log walls give R29 value. The large passive solar sunroom warms the house in the winter and overlooks your private pond and dock, with sliding glass doors to the patio and 5 person hot tub. Two cozy bedrooms and full bath are upstairs and could be combined to make a private master suite. The third bedroom and second full bath are just off the front entry hall. The large laundry/sewing room includes plenty of storage, and a new front loading washing machine plus new dryer. The potential fourth bedroom or office is above the garage and accessed through the stunning two-story library with balcony and vaulted ceiling. Shelves abound in the library, while an additional storage area is off the upstairs office. A separate passive solar art studio/office lies a few steps away from the large double garage and workshop with plenty of drawers and storage shelving. Decorative stamped concrete outside paths and interior floors in the art studio and sunroom create a natural heat sink below large passive solar windows. A large pole barn provides additional covered parking and/or storage. A strong well provides plenty of great tasting and clean water. Close to everything, the desirable Meadows subdivision (with irrigation and a very low HOA) is only a few miles to the hospital and a few minutes from La Plata County airport, yet only 6 miles to abundant shopping, restaurants, the Animas River trail and downtown Durango just beyond.
