1004 E 3rd Avenue

Durango CO, 81301


Built in 1886, this home is a quintessential foursquare-Colonial Revival home located in the heart of downtown Durango on historic East 3rd Avenue, The Boulevard. The home is rich in history and character. Foursquare has an important place in the history of American domestic architecture. Primarily square or rectangular in layout, this architectural style has mastered and maximized a basic floor plan that is popular for its comfort and is aesthetically pleasing in its simplicity. The current house layout offers the ability to add an additional downstairs en suite Master Bedroom by reconfiguring the downstairs dining room, butler's pantry and powder room. This house was home to the first baby born in Durango, Una C. Pearson. The land was donated in her honor in 1881; her father, John Pearson, built the home in 1886 where the family resided until the 1930s. The 3,355 SF residence includes a main residence (2,363 SF) and detached garage with guest/bonus space (992 SF) as well as two off street parking spaces. The lot is on the northeast corner of East 3rd Avenue and 10th Street allowing the southern exposure to flood the home with natural sunlight. The attractive exterior features lush yards and is adorned with wrought iron decorative fencing. The inviting entryway leads to a welcoming front porch adorned with wisteria covered columns. A stately grand foyer welcomes you into the home. Just off the entry sits the formal living room, placed adjacent to the library/den. This is a cozy spot to curl up with a book next to the gas fireplace with its blower for heating efficiency. There is also a small room with an infrared sauna for cold winter days tucked off of the den. Coffered, high ceilings are complemented with the original diamond cut glass windows. There is a formal dining room which has one of the two sets of French doors found in the home. This elegant space is off of the kitchen which is a chefs delight and perfect for entertaining family and friends. The kitchen has been upgraded and includes copper countertops which are naturally antimicrobial and very resistance to bacteria. High-end appliance package, Armstrong commercial grade checkered linoleum tile flooring, butlers pantry and a powder room complete this section of the house. There is a corner of south and east facing windows that create a perfect breakfast nook or informal dining area - a lovely spot to enjoy the morning sunrise. All three bedrooms of the main house are located on the second floor. A washer/dryer set is conveniently locat
