Location. Sneffels view. Energy efficiency. Easy paved access. Quality. Style. Privacy. Acreage. Parking. Public land adjacent. Trees. Finding everything at once in Ouray County is exceedingly rare. Here it is. Set on 3.88 wooded acres on a south-sloping hill just 2 miles north of Ridgway is this beautiful mountain-style home, featuring 4 bedrooms, 3-1/2 baths, and 4 heated garages, lovingly built with enormous wood posts and beams, soaring tongue-and-groove ceilings, and all pointed straight south at Mt. Sneffels. The windows take in the winter sunlight for passive solar gain, supplemented by 9 zones of beautifully engineered in-floor hydronic heat and a whole-house humidifier. Only five houses comprise the neighborhood--all tucked in the HOA-protected trees for wonderful privacy--yet you are still allowed to park all your toys, with tree-shielded outdoor space for several trailers/vehicles. How rare is that? Whether from the loft, the open living area and kitchen, the expansive deck, the master suite, or the front guest room and second living area, the Sneffels Range looms large in the view. With new stainless appliances including a double oven and gas range and a large butler’s pantry and a rear deck for the outdoor grille, cooking and entertaining is a pleasure. The pantry doubles as a mud room (and also has a second set of laundry hookups available) coming in from the upper two garages, which incorporate a large workshop. The main floor master suite has a sitting room/office and walk-in closet and opens to the deck. The bath has a jetted tub, a double shower, and an auxiliary water heater. Guests have their choice of the lower half of the house—which could be a Mother-in-Law setup if desired--consisting of two bedrooms, full bath, living room with wet bar, laundry room and two garages, or the “secret” upper-level king-sized suite with full bath and huge loft living area. Built-in speakers in 8 locations keep you entertained and 7 ceiling fans, 2 gas fireplaces and 2 room air conditioners keep you comfortable in all seasons. Outside the home, the yard is xeriscaped, with flagstone paths and a dry river rock stream within the circular driveway. Pets can access their own fenced area through two pet doors via the lower garages, so their feet are dry by the time they come into the laundry room. An insulated shed/studio is equipped with a ¾ bath and 50-amp electricity and flanked by large decks. A 2021 Hot Springs Grandee top-of-the-line hot tub takes in the incredible night sky. Two RV-dump ports and both 50-amp and 30-amp RV receptacles are available. To the east lie the RAT Trails on BLM land and to the west lies the paved bicycle trail running from Ridgway State Park, through the Dennis Weaver Memorial Park to downtown Ridgway. Telluride is 58 minutes, Ouray 23 minutes, and Montrose shopping 28 minutes. Yes, you can have it all.
