McElmo Canyon Four Corners Retreat (Colorado)

This sunny, completely remodeled manufactured home is nestled in secluded McElmo Canyon, which is the prime growing location for the Four Corners area due to its milder climate and longer growing season. The property is about 7 miles from the small town of Cortez. The home sits on 16.3 very versatile acres with 8 shares of irrigation water rights, which is more than sufficient to irrigate the pasture acres in the front, a large garden on the east portion of the property and the landscaping around the home. There is a large mountain to the rear of the property where deer and elk are frequently seen and it is bordered by easy access BLM land that provides hundreds of acres for hiking or riding and Ute Reservation Land at the top. The mountain possesses a sizeable and level bench that offers a complete view of the canyon; however, it is almost entirely hidden by the cedars. It would be an ideal site for another “less noticeable” building.

The house has 3 large bedrooms and 2 full baths. It possesses a very open floor plan and new high grade flooring has been laid throughout, making cleaning a cinch. The kitchen is spacious and light with an adjoining laundry room and separate 9’x13’ tiled storage room. Heating is provided by the highly efficient woodstove located in the living room; however, there is propane forced air central heat available. The home is cooled easily with an evaporative cooler in addition to strategically planted trees that let in plenty of light but keep the home shaded throughout the summer months.

The acreage around the house has been landscaped and manicured with grass, trees, decorative plants and flowers as well as a variety of medicinal and edible herbs. There is a large raised bed located on the south side of the house used as a 3 season kitchen garden. The east side of the home has a privacy fence and a large deck for grilling and entertaining. When looking out the front windows, one can take in the beauty of the canyon, McElmo Creek and the large vineyard/winery directly across from the property.

There is a nice sized redwood stained board and batten workshop with electricity, large work bench, shelves, a concrete floor and 1500 gallon cistern for extra water storage. This property has a newly constructed 40x60 (2400sq. ft.) pro-panel shop with 18’ceilings, 9 windows, 2 overhead doors, 2 man doors and a concrete floor. It is designed to have a second story living space placed if desired, so let your imaginations run wild. This is an excellent option for the person who runs a home business or has a bunch of toys.

This exceptional property in a secluded canyon is “move in ready” and is an excellent option for people seeking a closer to the land lifestyle where most of the infrastructure has already been completed.

The rural home on acreage with water rights is offered for sale by owner at $199,900. The seller is willing to consider reasonable offers or other optional arrangements, long term rental, lease/purchase or possible partial owner carry with sufficient down payment. Call this home and run a business out of the huge shop and enjoy growing your own garden, tending chickens and small livestock or just fatten a steer on the front pasture. The choices are endless.
