This is one of the most meticulously maintained rural properties you will ever see. From the hay fields and irrigation ditches to the barns and homes on the property everything noticeably well cared for. The property consists of a main home that was built in 2006, a historic guest cabin that was all built by hand by a previous owner, a mechanical barn, an equipment shed, an equipment barn, a shop with 3 garage doors, a greenhouse, a concrete basketball court, irrigated hay fields and 1800 feet of private fishing water on Cochetopa that has been improved with the introduction of over 900 boulders to create the ultimate fishing habitat. If you are looking for a place to escape the hustle of town life this is it. All the luxuries you could ask for while being in a beautiful and quiet setting with lots of elbow room. The views from the main home are expansive, and give you a real sense of the western heritage of the area. The home has 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, a beautiful kitchen with granite countertops, solid wood floors and a 1900 square foot garage! The home is heated with radiant in floor heat, but also has forced air heat and A/C just in case. The house has great wireless internet system that produces speeds significantly higher than you can get in Gunnison! There is a large solar and battery system to help keep the home running as green as possible. The home and garage also have a fire suppression sprinkler system. Step out onto the screened in porch for year around comfort outside. There is also an outdoor patio that is home to the BBQ grill. Just a few steps away is your garden and green house so you can grow your own food. The guest cabin was built in 1977 and updated in 2006 with Pella windows, an attached screened in porch and radiant in-floor heat. The rest of the 3 bedroom 1.5 bath cabin was left original, just the way it was built. The outbuildings consist of a mechanical room (624 square feet), a multi bay shed (507 square feet), a huge shop building (1215 square feet) and an equipment building (552 square feet). The irrigation system has been improved upon, and you can open or close the system by hand without every breaking a sweat. The irrigation is from two ditches, the Mitchell Ditch and the Home Ditch. The hay fields produce on average 750-900 small square bales of high quality hay a year. Perhaps the highlight of the property is the private fishing water on Cochetopa Creek. The creek has been enhanced by Steve Beltz a well known and respected hydrology expert. There is a complete plan that was designed and built to create a superior fishing environment. Over 900 boulders were specifically placed throughout the creek to create riffles, eddies and drops that all help to bolster the fish habitat. On top of all of this, the property joins BLM lands on three sides. This is just an overview. You have to see this property to really understand all that it has to offer.
