This multi-level mountain southwestern style house takes advantage of the sloping site by stepping down a few feet from the entry level to the great room and going down one half level to the guest bedrooms. One half level up from the entry level is the master suite, located above the guest quarters. The great room, with the dining area and kitchen occupy one large space highlighted by custom exposed heavy timber Douglas fir roof trusses. East facing high clerestory windows filters brilliant daylight through those trusses and provides glimpses of the Hermosa mountain ridge. Wonderful canyon views and long views toward Durango are enjoyed from many rooms. Finely crafted built-in Douglas fir woodwork along Heavy timber window lintels and rustic tile floors compliment the southwestern style of architecture. Highly efficient in-floor radiant heat warms the tiles and create a cozy atmosphere.
