Have you been looking for just that right place that's away from vehicles, away from city noise, away from the heat and humidity of the summer son? Have you been seeking just the right spot that's away from the highways, without being too far away from paved roads? A place that you can escape to easily most of the year on great county roads, but offers winter access with a quick snowmobile, ATV or cross country ski in? This is what brought a family centered successful Chicago family to this special spot years ago. They'd come to love the areas of Southwest Colorado--Ouray, Ridgway, Telluride and Montrose and with the help of the top local architect, friends, builders and craftspeople they created a dream home-one that's not a cabin-not quite a home-one that you can stay year round or lock and leave for months at a time. All this in an extremely private spot with incredible mountain views of not just the Sneffels Range, but also the Cimarrons. The land is comprised of six 40 acre parcels, arranged to be 1/2 mile E/W and 3/4 mile N/S. There are fabulous views from all of these parcels, and each could be sold off separately if you someday choose to do so. This is fabulous deer and elk country, and the owners established a series of pastures and fenced areas for horses and other livestock. There's a series of ponds fed by springs that hold water year round. The property is fenced and crossed fenced so it's ready right now as your summer pasture. Years ago the owners established grazing leases-so extremely low ag taxes keep the property easy to hold. The home is located into a private treed area just north of 62X road on the SW 40. Views are the best-even from the ground level. The sizing is perfect-with great room, kitchen, dining room and master bedroom with bath on the ground level, and two more bedrooms, along with a clever storage area and guest bathroom on the second level. Classic, warm mountain finishes were used-wood and stone were used throughout, and you'll love the soaring cathedral ceilings and stone fireplace. Carefully positioned and sheltered decks surround three sides, allowing the ability to spread out and enjoy those views, even when you have plenty of guests. Water is through a great well, electric is established using solar power and its set up with an engineered septic system. There's a conventional furnace to keep you warm in the cooler months, and Internet and streaming is available using a variety of excellent services. Even your cell phone will work here! You'll love the fact that there are no covenants, there's no HOA-just Ouray County guidelines. So bring your vehicles, hunt and ride on your own land. Sell off a parcel, add an ADU or a shop. Let your friends come and stay for a month in their RV--you name it--this is your legacy property to realize your Colorado dream. There's no better location for this beautiful Colorado home on its large acreage--Ridgway is just 25 minutes away and Telluride is only 35 minutes away, beyond Placerville and Sawpit. Good gravel roads connect to the north and west, leading you into millions of acres of public lands. This is a very special place-one that's enjoyed the love of the family and friends that have gathered here over the years. Now it's time for it to become a part of your family heritage. Make arrangements to come see this fine property today!
