A beautiful, well built home on a magnificent site. You will never tire of the expansive, unobstructed views of the West Elk Wilderness. The
home is designed to take full advantage of the view, with the irrigated fields laid out in front stretching across the valley up to the mountains.
The wildlife is abundant and often right out the door in this view corridor. To the west is the non-irrigated land covered with pine trees and
cedars. A great natural buffer and safe shady daytime home to resident wildlife.
The home was built by a master craftsman who paid attention to detail. The walls are 2×6 with blown in wool insulation, doors are solid core with craftsman style trim and the foundation is also insulated. The highly efficient Harmon wood stove in the basement is adequate to heat the upper living space through passive ornamental floor grates.
The Harmon gas fireplace in the great room is not only an efficient heating unit, it is visually pleasing and surrounded by stacked rock.
The barn/workshop is a man cave dream. The 42×73 metal building is separated into two sections. Large roll-up doors welcome you to an open area
currently used for large toys (utv’s, travel trailer, boats) etc. The second section is approximately 40×25 and is an insulated heated workshop
which is currently used by the “master craftsman” as a wood shop where he turned out much of the beautiful furniture in the home. There is a
corral replete with loafing sheds and a tack room. Cattle working facilities are also present with a squeeze chute, sweep tub and mobile panels.
Five miles to thousands of acres of public land to ride, walk, run, hike, camp…Two sources of domestic water including two Cattleman Water
Company taps and a domestic well rated at 12 GPM. The owners have installed a state of the art water filtration/purification system. Kitchen
appliances are almost new.
Cabinets are solid Hickory with soft close drawers and doors. Plenty of cabinet and pantry storage supporting an
abundance of working quartz counter space. Kitchen is tastefully accented with a copper farmhouse sink with a copper backsplash. Copper
also accents the raised kitchen bar. If that is not enough lets move downstairs to the walk out basement. Here, you will find a game room,
bathroom, bedroom, huge storage room and wine making room which could be turned into a kitchen. A small vineyard with 22 varietal wine
grape vines provide the grape supply for home made wine.
The owners are hobby vintners and if you are nice you might score a bottle of wine
from the environmentally controlled wine cellar. You will also enjoy the perennial asparagus, and raspberry vines mixed into the vineyard area.
There is also a large dedicated garden area with a small greenhouse used to start plants early in the spring adding valuable days to the
growing season. Yes, the owners thought of everything.
