If high quality custom features in a home that celebrates the history and natural resources of the Ouray, Ridgway and Telluride areas is important to you, this masterfully created Rocky Mountain Southwest Style home will quickly become your new favorite retreat in the Uncompahgre Valley! It's located east of the little town of Colona on 2 irrigated acres, and offers stellar Cimarron and Sneffels Range views. The original builder was much loved homebuilder-Kurt Quadri. The current owners-also well-known throughout the area, have taken it to the next level. Throughout the home they've reached a level of quality and uniqueness that is unmatched. You'll love the 18 inch thick true adobe walls and blacksmithing features. Antique woods and stone from famous and sometimes 'infamous' structures have been integrated throughout. This is one of those special spots where you spot something new and lovely each time you walk through. The entry into the 2 acres is prominent-with remote ironentry gate leading into a circular drive that provides access for your guests and your toys. You'll especially enjoy the landscaping features-with beautiful trees, stone and relaxing patio areas offering huge views of the mountains and Uncompahgre Valley. Entry is through two very special antique doors-the one off of new covered concrete patio is from a famous hotel-check it's doorbell inset into the door handle! The other on the south side leads into the richly warmed porch through the refurbished door of the Ridgway Fire Station! Either approach leads in to an incredibly comfortable and rich mountain space. The east entry leads into a sitting room with a massive stone true fireplace-highlighted by a mantle taken from the ridges overlooking the Ridgway Reservoir-do you see the whale? The glorious gourmet kitchen has some of the finest granite you'll see, along with fully outfitted cabinets and pantry areas. These are gracefully outfitted with antique wood fronts with copper accents. The nearly new Thermador range and oven is impressive, as are the other quality appliances. Be sure to check out the gallant hood-unlike any other that you'll see. In addition to the custom woodwork and metals you'll love the inlaid handmade tilework along its perimeter. The nicely sized dining area is fully surrounded by windows and rich woods for full views to the south and east. The living room is down just two steps and is so gracefully appointed. The floors are richly finished brick, and the integration with the soft warmth of the adobe bricks is especially inviting. The home has three kiva style fireplaces-this one has a beautiful Hearthstone woodstove back vented for energy efficiency and beauty. The three fully appointed bedrooms each have private baths, and you'll have a difficult time determining your favorite! The primary bedroom is roomy and has patio doors that open to a lovely concrete patio on the west side of the home. Its bathroom is beautifully appointed with antique inset features and walk in showers. The guest bedrooms are similarly styled-with tumbled travertine flooring-beautiful antique woods and even the antique marble sink from the Herron House in Ridgway-Infamous! While this home is unlike all others, perhaps the setting and features of the two acres will be of primary interest! There is an oversized garage area with woodshop and studio/craft area, a 4 stall storage building outback that would be horse friendly-there is no HOA! You'll absolutely love the craft and workshop building-currently used as a blacksmith shop. All this located located just 20 minutes from Montrose or Ridgway, one hour from Telluride and just minutes from thousands of acres of public lands. Make your plans to come see this impressive home today. Be sure to take the time to soak in the very special features and make it your year-round forever home or your seasonal escape.
