1426 County Road 12, Ridgway, Colorado, 81432
Make your arrangements today to come see this custom designed home located on 12+ acres in one of Ouray County's most sought after locations-County Road 12 east of Ridgway. This home is an incredibly popular short term rental--and showings need to be limited to select days when there's gaps in the rentals, so read on-but plan on making an appointment soon by contacting agent/realtor! There is no better setting for your mountain lifestyle. The Sneffels Mountain views are as spectacular as you'll find, and you're just five minutes from Mountain Market, the Colorado Boy and Orvis Hot Springs. The access is perfect through Millionaire Valley to Owl Creek Pass and just minutes away from Ouray, Silverton and Telluride and the airport in Montrose. This is the personal home of one of our area's finest builders. The "Mountain Country Farmhouse" style was expertly designed and realized, with a historic feel created using recycled and thoughtfully created finishes. The main home is situated back, allowing expansive views toward the mountains to the southwest. The east and south sides have broad covered porches to enjoy your outside spaces, and a wealth of windows throughout the home help capture excellent mountain and valley views in all directions. This intelligent passive solar design keeps the home cool during the summer months yet warms things nicely and reducing heating bills during the winter. You'll absolutely love the mudroom entry, located on the northwest side of the home. This can be closed off, and leads to one of the seldom seen features in our area--a full, unfinished basement-ready for your storage, overflow or place for the kiddos to hang out. Here you also enter into a hallway leading to a guest bedroom or office on the south side. This is perfect for guests or as a flexible space. The oversized country kitchen is just inside the central core on the west side of the lower level. The appliances, custom cabinets and counters are all generously sized and masterfully crafted. The towering great room is toward the west side of the lower level, and you'll especially love the light and mountain views from this space. There's a gas fireplace located along the west wall, and you'll absolutely love the feel of the dining area, laundry and flex space separated from the main living level using antique-feel interior windows. This level offers so much-privacy, room to gather-room for 20 of your favorite friends, or just a spot to curl up and read your favorite book. A beautifully designed, curved stairway leads to the upper level, and the floor to ceiling library, sitting area overlooking the great room. Beyond the library are two guest bedrooms. One is on the east side of the upper level and the other is in the center on the mountain view side of the home. These share a country bathroom on the north side of the hall. The master is regal and brightly lit, and offers a huge walk-in closet just inside the entry, comfortable sizing with huge windows on three sides, and a rich master bath with custom vanity, walk in tiled shower and jetted mountain view soaking tub. The grounds are expertly landscaped, bringing in the country farmhouse feel, both inside and out. There's a lush lawn surrounded with custom welded metal fencing kept green with a full sprinkler system with drip system. This courtyard area is between the home and the beautiful, oversized garage/workshop, which has its own bathroom with hot and cold water. There's even a sweet little cupola upstairs for your meditation room, workplace or slumber parties! That special country feel is enhanced by the chicken coop, garden beds and horse stall with turn out on the north side of the property. This is the perfect spot for a few horses, alpacas-even a cow or yak! Make your plans to come see this fine home-built to combine the new and techno with the historic and soft. There's no finer location for you to realize your Colorado Dream than Ouray County!
