365 Whispering Pines, Ouray, Colorado, 81427
There is no more aptly named community in all of Ouray County than Whispering Pines! Many of us remember the first time we drove into the town of Ouray, climbed out of our cars,took a deep breath of pine scented air, and could actually hear the wind whispering in the trees! Each year this called us back to this very spectacular Colorado mountain community-known as the Switzerland of America, the Jeep Capital of the World, or simply "Your Special Place." Here's your chance to own that home you've been waiting for. In many ways it's just right-with a total of three bedrooms, 2-1/2 baths and just over 1500 square feet. You'll find yourself waiting for that first big snow, where you can cuddle in and read a book in front of the stone fireplace that is one of many highlights in this beautifully maintained home. The front stairs lead you into an air lock mudroom, where you and your guests can shed your outside clothes. Inside is a wonderful, interesting great room, with geometrically designed ceilings, full stone historic fireplace, hardwood floors, and double doors that lead you onto the large deck on the home's south side. The dining room and kitchen are very nicely done-with a host of dialed in Scandinavian cabinetry that follows the perimeter of the entire kitchen. These have many pull outs and creatively designed storage areas. You'll adore the high end appliances, with stainless refrigerator, commercial style 5 burner gas range with hood above, and new Bosch dishwasher. The granite is very nice-contemporary lighter color with that gorgeous chiseled edge and full backsplash. You'll spend your time visiting around the center island as you work on meals and name the deer outside. This area leads down the hall to the west and into the bedroom wing. To the west is a large master suite, which has not only a large closet along its north side, but also a huge walk in closet on its east end. This is adjacent to one of the nicer bathrooms you'll ever see-with full glass walk in shower with pebble floor and a glorious jetted soaking tub. You many never have to go to the Hot Springs again! The laundry setup is in the hallway off of the second bath. This is also nicely outfitted-with combination shower and bath and full travertine tile work. Behind this is the second bedroom, which just might be your flex room-for an office, reading room, workout room, or craft room-ready when needed when those guests that like to visit Ouray show up! Upstairs is yet another bedroom. Its closet is the wardrobe that will stay. This may be another favorite room, due to its privacy, half bath and very cool window seat-that's just begging for your next novel. Outside is similarly lovely, due to the owner's hard work creating a fully landscaped yard, appointed with towering pines, spruce and firs,and perennial plants in its stone gardens. There is a full sprinkler system and the grass in back has been sodded. It's a perfect spot for bocce, corn hole and just relaxing. The large deck is ready for your gatherings and cookouts, and the Whispering Pines provide just enough shade to prevent things from getting too hot. The lower level has two extra deep garages that connect to one another and that walk out to the back yard. Use these to keep your fun toys clean and out of the way until you're ready to hit the hills or the reservoir! Make your plans now to come hear the Whispering Pines of Ouray. But hurry-this one will go fast!
