This pretty, artist owned, move in ready property has never been on the market before.
Two very well built log homes sit on 13.43 acres bordering 100,000+ acres of San Juan National Forest and the HD mountains are just steps outside your back door. Privacy, long views of the snow capped La Plata Mountains and a small view of Vallecito’s Middle Mountain (the Continenial divide) set this property apart.
The larger log home was built in 1994. The smaller log home structure was begun in 1972 and completed in 1976. Both are well maintained and sporting recently sealed and stained exteriors, and freshly painted interiors. The smaller cabin has Mexican saltillo tile in the kitchen and bath, a beautiful antique round oak pot belly stove and new laminate flooring in the open floor plan downstairs and new carpet in the two upstairs bedrooms.
Attached to the smaller cabin is a 16′ X 36′ passive solar greenhouse with stained concrete floor and raised rock beds. Also, off the kitchen is a large east facing deck surrounded by mature aspen trees providing shade in the summer, amazing color in the fall, and sun in the winter.
The large log home has radiant heat in the beautiful flagstone floor, four bedrooms, one full bath upstairs, one 3/4 bath with a steam shower and new laminate in the master bedroom downstairs, and a 1/2 bath powder room. The master bedroom downstairs has new carpet and a river rock patio, with a small water feature, and great views. There are two living rooms. The one downstairs has an open floor plan, pantry and a large eastern facing stamped concrete patio with walkways. The living area and two bedrooms upstairs have new carpet and a full bath. Off the upstairs living area is a large flagstone deck partially shaded by aspens, and incredible western mountain views. Two bedrooms upstairs both have entries to a small eastern deck. There is a private entrance to the upstairs by way of outdoor metal custom winter proof staircase.
There is excellent tasting water that is permitted for 2 homes and 1 1/4 acres of irrigation. It is a shared domestic water well with a 1250 gallon storage cistern. Property has a 40′ deep soil conservation service irrigation pond that needs some work to restore it to a huge catchment or large irrigation pond. 1.25 acres of the field are game fenced for a garden area that was previously a organic CSA farm with a covered equipment shelter.
Large ponderosa pine and aspen trees, a pipe fence and stone pillar entry distinguish this property that is located less than 5 miles to Bayfield and has a mile long private road entry. There is no HOA but residents zoned it so rest assure no one can subdivide under 35 acres.
Landscaping, fruit and flower trees need a loving touch. Wildlife abounds! This will make a great family residence or a great rental investment property. Has been rented in the past. Can live in one home and rent the other home or rent them both.
