Your mountain paradise awaits at this two-home property located at the base of the breathtaking San Juan Mountains in Ouray County, Colorado, and the possibilities are endless! The main house has been remodeled in a modern rustic style. Its expansive 9,000+ square feet boast 8 bedrooms and 5.5 baths, a cook’s kitchen, large great room, family room, game room, multiple fireplaces, and a 900 sq. ft. garage equipped with an RV door plus plenty of storage areas for all of your adventure toys. The caretaker’s house, also updated, contains an additional 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 2,000+ square feet of living space. At the moment, this property is being used as a lucrative short term rental (financials can be provided upon request). You could keep it as an ongoing short term rental property, however, it would also be excellent for use as a large family home. Having the caretaker’s home on the property dramatically expands your options of living and working at the same location. Nestled in the trees, with views of the mountains and the soothing sounds of a seasonal stream called Cutler Creek that runs along the southern edge of the property, this is the perfect property for indoor and outdoor living in all seasons. In winter, cozy up by the great room fireplace and watch the snow fall outside the floor-to-ceiling windows. In summer, host a cookout for family and friends on the huge wraparound deck, perfect for entertaining. Located halfway between Ouray and Ridgway (less than 10 min. from each), this property is the ideal jumping off point to all the best activities the region has to offer — hiking in the National Forest, 4 wheeling, fishing, cross country skiing, boating, hunting, and soaking in the many local hot springs. Ouray and Ridgway each host summer concerts, craft shows, and other events. And just down the road is Telluride, which is known for its many festival offerings, including the Jazz, Bluegrass, and Film festivals, to name a few. Make this property your home, business, or both—let your imagination soar. If you’re looking for luxurious mountain living and a great investment, this is it! *PLEASE walk through this home virtually in 3-D by simply clicking on the "branded virtual tour" link.
