Ask Robert Gash, ALC
Welcome home to this extraordinary homestead and ranch – it's one of the valley's finest! Nestled across 49.57 acres of fertile soil with high-priority water rights, this paradise has operated as a productive farm for numerous years. An advanced irrigation system has been thoughtfully installed, simplifying the task of watering and creating efficiency. The property includes 17 shares of Uncompahgre Valley Water Users Association irrigation water and 25 shares of the Relief Ditch. The impressive executive style home extends a warm welcome to all who enter! Featuring an open-concept layout with stunning vaulted tongue-and-groove ceilings, it's truly a haven for entertainers and hermits alike. Radiant in-floor heating keeps the home cozy in the winter, while a magnificent gas-burning fireplace dominates the main living area, accompanied by expansive picture windows that grace the entire south wall of the living and informal dining space. There is also a fantastic wood burning stove. Glass doors lead to the spacious back deck off the living room, effectively expanding the living and entertainment areas. The home boasts a large formal dining room, a game/movie theatre screening room, wine room, 4 generous bedrooms, and 4 spacious bathrooms. The master suite, situated in the eastern wing, connects to a spacious office/sunroom and offers all the expected comforts. It includes a luxurious soaking tub, a separate roomy shower, abundant vanity and linen storage, and a walk-in closet. Almost all of the living space is on the main level, with the exception of a large bonus room above the garage that is complete with a full bath, a gas-fired stove for ambiance, and stunning views. On the lower level, you'll discover a substantial laundry room, a walk-in pantry, the wine cellar, and a dreamy kitchen. Top-of-the-line Silestone countertops provide ample prep and entertainment space, while custom cabinetry offers storage for dishes, tools, and gadgets. Double refrigerators, a brand new Thermador commercial-grade range and ovens, and a quiet-run dishwasher complete the appliance suite. Outdoors is a gardener's paradise, with a lush grassy yard surrounding the home, mature gardens, towering trees, and a comprehensive underground sprinkler system. Enjoy the outdoors on the deck or dine beneath the beautiful pergola/gazebo. Marvel at Western Colorado's sunsets and sunrises or take a short stroll down the road to the scenic Gunnison River for fishing or a leisurely float, just minutes away. The detached 56x42 shop features concrete floors, heating, and a bathroom. The 30x84 greenhouse is climate-controlled for versatile year-round growing, and two additional metal equipment sheds (one 24x60 and the other 96x36) house essential implements for the property's operation. Towards the southern end of the ranch you'll find an extra residence (7878 2200 Road), a single-level 3-bedroom, 1-bath home that has historically been rented out. There's also a detached garage and shed/storage space. The entire property is securely fenced with split rail wood surrounding the home and outbuildings, as well as game fencing and barbed wire around most of the irrigated land to safeguard crops and keep wildlife at bay. A beautiful new corral system has been built on the east side of the property making moving, branding, or doctoring livestock a breeze. Situated just 10 minutes east of Delta, Colorado, this ranch is nestled in a valley affectionately known as the "banana belt," celebrated for its mild winters, extended growing season, and exceptional soils and water. This incredible property, with its fertile land and meticulously maintained executive residence, together with the shop, greenhouse, outbuildings, and extra home, truly offers everything you could desire.
