650 Lands End Drive, Ridgway, Colorado, 81432
If the big mountain views of Ridgway, Colorado is what you're after, you can't beat this well cared for, intelligently designed home on 1.8 acres in the Vista Terrace area. The extremely private entrance lets you know that you're in for a quality treat. The thoughtfulness of the owners will instantly be evident as you move toward the front of the home, through nicely designed landscaping, highlighted by evergreen and perennial plants. Its western exposure keeps the snow and ice manageable, and bathes your home in sunlight. The home is designed perfectly for you-with the master, great room, kitchen, two bathrooms, laundry and additional bedroom or office on the main level. The lower level is completely distinct from the upper level, and it offers a full, additional living space with kitchenette, third bedroom area, and roomy living spaces. This works perfectly for guests, and allows you as owners to not have a large two story home to clean. Let's start our tour on the main level-upstairs. The main entrance leads into a mudroom, which leads straight ahead into the 2nd bedroom, which will likely be your flex room, bedroom or office. It has an almost outdoor feel, with oversized windows to bring in eastern light and views of the natural landscaping. Down the hall to the south you'll enter what you'll see as absolute heaven-a large great room, with cathedral ceilings and full length windows to bring in the amazing views and bathe the room in light. This room walks out to the wrap around deck overlooking the Valley, and has a regal real wood fireplace with blower in the southeast corner, so that you'll be able to watch the flames gently roll as you look toward Mount Abrams beyond Ouray, the Magic Carpet of the Ridgway Valley, and the full Sneffels Mountain range. Opening onto this room is the fully outfitted kitchen, with a wealth of cabinetry and some of the nicest expansion of granite that you'll ever see. The window above its sink faces west to bring in nice light, and the opening on the south end allows you to enjoy the big mountain views as you prepare your gourmet meals! The large master suite has these same views, soaring ceilings and access onto the covered deck. It has a walk in closet, and the master bath has a walk-in shower and large garden tub and bay window-so you can watch the deer as you soak! The entrance to the lower level living area is on the south side, and is accessed by a path along the west side. There's a protected seating area here, looking south, because the entire deck above has rusty metal installed to protect you from moisture. The 750 square feet on this level is largely open, and can be arranged in many different ways. It's currently a bedroom along its west side, with a kitchenette on the north end and a dining room/living area on its east side. There is a walk in shower in the bathroom on this level too, as well as a large 11x13 room that is a perfect craft room, additional office, media room or simply a storage room. It is contiguous to an enclosed storage area that is underneath the deck that would make a great art studio or playroom that could be used independently from the apartment. The almost two acres is almost a wildlife refuge, with deer and wild turkey seen almost every day. It's nicely terraced, with beautiful arroyo toward its west side and mature trees offering rare privacy. The garage houses yet another treat-extra deep spaces, for your vehicles and toys, rear access, and the natural gas water heater and furnace. To top it off, there's a one year home warranty covering the systems and appliances-and HIGH SPEED Internet-80 MEG! All of this is yours in a nicely priced home located only 3minutes from Mountain Market, the True Grit and other Ridgway businesses. You're only 30 minutes from Montrose, 15 minutes from Ouray, and 50 minutes from the slopes of Telluride. Make your plans to come to Ridgway and purchase this quality home today!
