“Elle Vita” Modern Contemporary
About this Project:
Built in the city limits less than a minute to the Animas and downtown Durango yet still affords plenty of privacy. The home backs up to Overend Mountan Park on 3 sides and takes advantage of the private setting with ample windows to bring in natural light and the expansive views. A cantilevered almost floating deck overlooks town and affords a shady place to enjoy a hot afternoon. At just 2400 square feet the 3 Bedroom 2 ½ bath home lives larger with a separate main level office and an oversized garage with a shop space. The Master Suite with custom tiled walk in shower is on the main level with the kitchen, living room, and dining room. The 2 other bedrooms, bonus room, and laundry space resides on the lower level.
Open and Airy
The nearly 14’ foot high ceilings in the dining room and 12’ ceilings in the living room make the home feel open and airy. Sleek glossy white cabinetry mixed with rustic tile backsplash, quartz countertops, and a locally harvested live edge pine bar create an interesting mash up of materials in the kitchen. The spacious open floor plan was designed to allow defined flow between the spaces without any hallways and is perfect for entertaining no matter the size of the party. Low maintenance landscaping was chosen to reduce water usage and create an environment that mixes well with the arid high desert native plants surrounding the area.
