About the Listing 2087 - 5757

Durango’s 3rd Avenue historical district is recognized by the National Register of Historic places, and this former Assay House lays claim as a cornerstone of Durango's rich history. Originally built in 1898 as the office for the Durango Ore Sampling Company with the sampling works facility located below and adjacent to the nearby historic narrow gauge railroad, it transitioned into a residential dwelling in 1904. Anchoring Durango's beloved tree-lined parkway known as “The Boulevard”, this home is a stunning, renovated showcase, nestled among the late 1800’s and early 1900’s Revival and Victorian architecture. The property was meticulously restored in 2008, and has been transformed into a beautiful 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home. Step inside and you are welcomed by the rich warmth of the building, from the hardwood floors to the coffered ceilings. The kitchen and living room provide an open concept with raised breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, and a living/ dining area. Glass French doors are centered in the arched brick wall, leading into a parlor or second living room space with gas fireplace and granite surround. A half flight of stairs leads you to the entire master suite with walk-in closet and bath with separate tiled shower, soaking tub, two vanities, and water closet. The master suite has its own private door leading to the back deck and yard space with views of the Animas River, Smelter Mountain, and Perins Peak. On the lower level, you will find a built-in office space area, two bedrooms, and a full bathroom. The home also features a main level half bath, laundry room with utility sink off of the kitchen, back porch/ mud room, and two car garage. Truly a historic gem on the Boulevard, this home is now ready for the next chapter in its long legacy in Durango.
