About 1660 Lake Purgatory Drive

The home is affectionately known as “Moonshadows”, due to the dappled light of the full moon through the Ponderosa Pine forested one-acre lot adding to the scenic beauty experienced both in and outside the home. A seasonal creek runs along the southern edge of the lot, which has been professionally mitigated for fire safety, and natural rock from the land has been collected and formed into a primitive ‘wall’ along the property line. Additional exterior features include a solar-powered cascading water feature and a permanent fire pit in the garden area on the northern side of the house. Wildlife is frequently seen on this lot that has been maintained via ongoing, thoughtful stewardship of the owner. Other exterior features include two driveways. One leads to the two-car garage on the lower level of the home and the other drive runs up the hillside behind the home for ground level, with no-stairs access to the main level of the home. Carvings of wildlife can be seen in various points where felled trees have been transformed into outdoor mountain décor, including the two ‘bear posts’ that support the hammock in the garden area near the waterfall. Views of the Hermosa Cliffs to the west can be seen from the deck and living room of the home. The deck of the home, which wraps around much of the west-facing elevation is designed with ease of care in mind. The galvanized steel grate decking requires little or no maintenance, and virtually eliminates snow shoveling in winter, as new snowfall does not build up on the deck. Other thoughtful exterior features include the Pro-Panel metal roof, durable Geobond stucco, and fire-resistant Hardieplank soffit and trim. The roof fasteners and gaskets were thoroughly replaced in 2019, and the exterior was repainted in 2017, evidence of the ongoing care of the home. More features include a built-in fire suppression system that includes a holding tank on the lower level. This whole-house system was inspected and updated in 2021. The in-floor radiant heating system was inspected and serviced in 2022. Both the main living level of the home as well as the lower-level garage and bonus rooms are heated by this system. A central vacuum system is helpful when cleaning the home and the 500-gallon propane tank is owed (no lease). The 1,000-gallon septic tank and the system has been pumped and inspected (April 2022) and Health Department transfer documents are in progress to aid in wastewater permit delivery to the new owner. Original blueprints are available to aid with possible future design and planning. Neighborhood roads are maintained by HOA and Road Association. The neighborhood has received an 'A' rating from the fire department. Lake Purgatory HOA Fire Protection Plan documents are available. The 1-acre lot of this home has been extensively mitigated for wildfire safety.
