Remember exploring the wild west in that magical space of your childhood dreams? Guess what? Welcome home cowboy!
This truly is a Colorado rancher's paradise and you will instantly know it's your own personal magic kingdom when you see the awe inspiring custom built 3 bed/2 bath house cradled on 173 sprawling acres overlooking the Narraguinnep Reservoir. This paradise is nestled in the rugged arms of Mesa Verde, Sleeping Ute, and the La Plata Mountains where the untamed beauty literally surrounds you. Your turn-key operation is ready to roll with a 3 bed/2 bath well maintained guest house (perfect for a caretaker), a new full sized arena with chute, livestock shelter, large hay barn, spacious workshop, pasture, 3 lovely ponds, a year round live springs, as well as the original 1916 home. As gorgeous as the property is you will be hard pressed to motivate to leave the luxury of your new home or get off the massive deck that envelops ¾ of the 2,679 SF house where you are bound to spend many mornings sipping coffee gazing at the mountains, and evenings hosting cookouts, just before you grab some drinks and head to the hot tub on the deck off the suite, and soak under the night sky, plotting tomorrow's adventures. This home truly is the perfect balance of modern convenience while embracing the raw beauty of days gone by. You have a gourmet kitchen laden with top of the line stainless steel and granite, a walk-in pantry, huge laundry room, an island with a second sink, and of course, a large pampering primary suite. All this convenience at your fingertips and your home still basks you in the feeling that not a day has gone by in the last 2 centuries with the reclaimed barn wood floors, the commanding Douglas fir beams throughout, an antler chandelier capping the soaring cathedral ceiling and the wall of windows almost inviting the ancient snowcapped mountains to join you by the massive moss stone fireplace that is the beating heart of this bright, open cheery home. This picturesque landscaped property is fully fenced and cross fenced with open rolling meadows scattered with Pinion, Juniper and Cedar trees just teeming with wildlife and your acreage backs 897 public acres where you can hunt, ride horses, hike and explore to your heart's content. The closest airport is in Cortez or an hour away in Durango, but you'll never want to leave your little slice of heaven if you can help it.
