Property Description

A lavish retreat, with panoramic southern and eastern Animas Valley and Northern rugged forest landscape with peeping Engineer mountain in the distance. “Top of the Ark” is a rare estate located between Durango and Purgatory Ski Resort, and just minutes away from the Glacier Club golf course with no HOA or covenants. What makes the difference between great and exceptional with a Colorado home, does not only comprise of what a home has to offer, but the adventures you can have. This home has easy year round accessibility and four seasons of fun. Private, but not off the grid, this tranquil estate is sure to appeal to someone wanting the true Colorado experience. After entering through the private gate you will be greeted by the breath taking stance of the front of the main house, the guest home to the left, a pond, and a stone staircase walkway. The three car heated garage on the main house also has a separated area that makes great additional storage for outdoor activities, a studio, or a small workshop. Taking groceries from downstairs to upstairs is a breeze with the dumbwaiter system. The lowest level also has a large laundry room, and a huge bonus room that would make a great movie theater and previously was a large oversize pool/game room. The main level has imported beveled turkish sandstone floors, mixed with exotic tiger wood flooring. There is a great room with a wall of windows and vaulted beamed ceiling, a wrap around wet-bar, a nicely positioned kitchen that has the sink facing the northern mountains, formal dining room, two bedrooms, a full bathroom and powder room. Owners suite? Try an entire level! Two separated entries can take you to the owner bath- that have two walk-in closets on each side, and built in dressers. The bathroom area has two separated toilets, vanities, a large tub, and a large shower. This is great for someone who has different schedules, or that enjoys having their own privacy and space. This layout is unique, but it makes a lot of sense. There is a private TV room on the owner level, that has been used as a workout space. There is a spiral staircase that takes you to an observatory also from this level that has 360 degree windows to stargaze, mediate, or use as a reading room. Back down to the main house level there is a walkway bridge that takes you over the koi pond to the guest home. The guest house is fully self contained and has 1 bedroom and 2 baths, a 2 car garage, laundry room, living room, full kitchen, dining, and spacious bedroom. All together this property has 5 garage spaces, 4 bedrooms, and 6 bathrooms. There is a closet designated for an elevator if the new owner wants one. This home would make a great full time retreat, VRBO, or corporate retreat. New asphalt shingle roof and less than two year old appliances.
