Enjoy living on the Boulevard in this beautiful Dutch Colonial Revival style home built in 1908 by stone mason David Ramsey. Steeped in Durango history this home has only been owned by 4 families; Ramsey - the builder,  the Clarks, the Hatfields, and the current owners. The home has had modernization to all the baths and the kitchen while maintaining the charm of the early 1900s. A key feature of the home is the glass atrium that faces 3rd Avenue and overlooks a tree covered front patio. Light and bright with many panes of leaded glass, the atrium is a perfect place for a morning cup of coffee. The main level of the home has a nice size living room with a gas log fireplace. The updated kitchen has a breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances. A mud room of the kitchen leads to the fenced backyard. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms. The generous owners suite has been recently upgraded with a 3/4 bath and a large 2nd closet. The other 2 bedrooms have built-in closet systems to maximize storage space. A 3/4 hall bath is easy and convenient and has had a recent upgrade. An attic space allows for your imagination; art studio, yoga/exercise room? The lower level of the home has a bonus room which could be used as a non-conforming 4th bedroom or an office/media room. The full bath boasts a footed tub. A wine cellar takes up the space under the stairs. The large laundry room has many cabinets and a sink. You can enter the backyard through the storage area. The backyard is fully fenced and is a great area for enjoying the garden. It has raised beds for planting herbs and vegetables. The patio area is big enough for a full dining set as well as a sofa and chairs. A one car garage and a single parking space adjoin the alley. The owners have plans and approval from the city for a two car garage should the Buyer want to make that change. Located just a block away from the shops and restaurants of Downtown Durango on the beautiful and historic 3rd Avenue. The home enjoys history and community. Don't miss the opportunity to own this wonderful home!
