This air-conditioned 6400+ sq. ft. 5-bedroom home sits on the banks of Coon Creek just off of the highly desirable North County Road 250 up the very scenic Missionary Ridge Road. The site is perched above the beautiful Animas Valley offering incredible mountain views to the north including Engineer, Spud, the majestic Hermosa Cliffs, and the valley floor.

The seller has also installed a sandstone walkway and has done extensive fire mitigation for safety and insurance purposes. These updates showcase the beautiful views and have added to the already well-done landscaping. INTERIOR: Freshly painted main rooms, hallways, primary bedroom and put in a new floor-to-ceiling stone wood-burning fireplace. The primary bathroom was also remodeled. In the kitchen, which already had a Subzero refrigerator, dual Whirlpool ovens, Scotsman ice maker, Bosch dishwasher, they replaced and extended the massive kitchen island countertop with beautiful quartzite, did a cabinet refresh, lighting updates and added a new wine refrigerator. Other updates include new carpeting in certain rooms, new Carrier HVAC system Furnace which services the north part of the home and added 2 new Aprilaire steam humidifiers. The home is being offered fully furnished, some of the furnishings are brand new along with 5 new TV's, Sonos sound and security systems.
