MLS #680823
Price: $240,000
City: Durango
Type: Condo
Bed(s):3
Bath(s):3
Updated condominium on Elbert Creek near Purgatory. The owners have made some major improvements to this property in the last several years: a stunningly designed floor-to-ceiling river rock and stone fireplace; all new stainless steel appliances in the kitchen (refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, range/oven); elimination of the drop ceiling in the kitchen; the entire 2nd floor and the stairway going up was just painted. The Needles Condominiums are located adjacent to the prestigious Two Dogs subdivision about 1.5 miles south of Durango Mountain Resort. Located in the north building which would make it one of the furthest away from the highway, this unit “lives” to the east overlooking Elbert Creek and the Western Needles Mountains. Barbecue on the back deck or take a few extra steps and you can have a picnic in the common grounds and listen to Elbert Creek as it babbles past your back door. If you don’t want to cook tonight, that is just fine because adjoining these condominiums, on the south side, is the Schoolhouse Café/Bar that serves great pizza, homemade cannelloni and ice cold beer. They’ve got knockout pizza (voted the best pizza in the county a couple years ago)….. and I can personally attest to that, as well. Forget to get milk, bread or gas before you left Durango? Don’t worry the Needles Country Store and Gas Station is nearby. Ready to move in. This home has not been in a rental pool but the option to make a little income, is certainly available for you. There is an on-site property manager who, for a fee, can help you with vacation rentals. Upon entering this home, you are greeted with a wide entrance with a built-in bench for kicking off your shoes or hiking boots. The main level of this home has vaulted tongue and groove cedar ceilings and skylights providing a home full of glowing sunshine. The dining room and the living room both look out over the well cared-for grassy common area and Elbert Creek. You will be able to gather around the pellett-burning rock fireplace and recount your days filled with skiing, hiking, mountain biking, fishing and all the other fun things to do in Durango. In addition, there is a bedroom on the 1st floor and a full bathroom. The ample sized kitchen, with brand-new appliances, has lots of cabinets and countertop space. Have your guests over for dinner and they can pull up the bar stools and kibitz with the cook while you enjoy being the very 1st user of these new appliances. Retreat to the dining room that opens right onto the back deck for those wonderful dinner occasions or you can literally go outside and eat on the picnic tables in the common area. The laundry room is on the 1st floor and the washer and dryer are included as well. UPSTAIRS you will find 2 spacious bedrooms each with a full bath. The master has vaulted ceilings, a skylight, walk in closet with extra storage within the closet and a sliding door to your own private balcony. Here you have views of the Hermosa Cliffs to the west as well as the Needles Mountains to the east. UTILITIES: Electric High $360. Low $75. Average $190. HOA: The dues cover a lot of things as part of the $561 per month. Approximately $110 per month goes toward the capital reserve fund. There is an on-site manager. Exterior building maintenance, snow removal including the roofs sidewalks and parking areas, community hot tub, water / sewer / trash, high-speed Internet, cable television, phone and exterior grounds maintenance are all paid for out of this monthly amount.
