Description

This rustic, two-level vacation home in Sangre de Cristo Ranches is located 10,000 feet above sea level, overlooking the steep valley of El Poso Creek in the magnificent Sangre de Cristo Range of Southern Colorado. The wide-open floor plan features a living room with a spectacular fireplace, huge wooden beams, stained millwork, and an eat-in kitchen with a large dining area for gatherings. A primary bedroom and full bath complete the main level. The lower level features three bedrooms (one non-conforming), one bath, and a game room. This home has a sturdy metal roof and newly installed "hurricane shutters" on large windows for security purposes. An efficient propane gas system powers furnace and kitchen appliances all while lighting is powered by a solar panel system. Water comes from a 2000 gallon refillable cistern. Nearby San Luis (Colorado's oldest town) and Ft. Garland provide essential supplies, restaurants, and postal outlets while Alamosa and Walsenberg include most larger town amenities, including medical. The property is located about four hours from the Denver Metro area. The famed Sand Dunes National Monument sits a few miles north at the base of the spectacular Blanca Range. Famous resort town of Taos, New Mexico is an hour's drive southwest with the increasingly popular ski town of Red River, New Mexico an hour's drive directly south. The area is a sportsman's paradise just minutes from exceptional fishing for brown trout and native Rio Grande Cutthroat trout on El Poso and Culebra Creeks, as well the Rio Grande, Conejos and Red Rivers. Wildlife abounds with frequent sightings of white-tailed deer, elk, bighorn sheep, bobcat, wild turkey, coyotes, and black bear. Steller's Blue Jays, colorful finches and other mountain birds abound, and the seasonal hummingbirds are delightful. Historic hiking trails and off road ATV trails are plentiful. Isn't it time for your your mountain home that is truly at "the top of the world"?
