Silverview Agave Florida

One of Durango’s newest infill communities. Construction of the 14-unit development – including six duplexes and eight single-family homes – on Florida Road just past Chapman Hill began last spring, and the main-level designs are attracting empty-nesters looking to downsize and young families purchasing their first homes.

The homes require minimal maintenance, and the yards are xeriscaped, which means the landscaping is designed to reduce the necessity of additional watering from irrigation. Both the duplex units and single-family homes have three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, hardwood floors, concrete countertops done by a local company, two-car garages and large decks overlooking the mountains. Two bedrooms and a full bathroom are downstairs, while the master bedroom, kitchen, 1.5 bathrooms and living room are on the first floor, which has drawn the interest of both new families and the newly empty nesters.

The development is within walking distance of Chapman Hill, hiking trails, Riverview Elementary and downtown Durango.
