Rebuilt from scratch on a lot on 5th Avenue in downtown Durango, this home was designed to blend in with the historic neighborhood while incorporating more modern livability. Complex roof lines and dormers create architectural interest both inside and out, and adds to the spacious feeling in only 2300 sq. ft. of living space. Skylights throughout the house brighten the kitchen, hall and living room. Reclaimed wood salvaged from the existing shed on the property provide the material accents for the custom-made sliding barn doors and interior siding details.
Bright and airy, the open floor plan downstairs flows from dining to kitchen and living room. This home isn’t trying to be a dark Victorian replication, but an updated urban take on historic downtown. Homeowner, Michelle, emphasizes her design preference of “eclectic” – a blend of rustic accents offset by clean, white lines.
