Property Description

Year round off grid living on 160 mountain acres! This property is the one. The drive up to this cabin is surrounded with spectacular views. As you pull up to the house and 2300 sqft garage/storage building, it’s easy to see how comfortable living at this altitude can be. Completely off grid, this house has two bedrooms, a full bath, a 3/4 bath, and an extra half bathroom in the basement. A wood burning fireplace in the living room serves as the main source of heat, but there is a supplemental propane heater in the basement. All of the standard amenities are available in the kitchen. A dishwasher, oven, and refrigerator are all built to run off grid. A 1000 gallon propane tank is owned and filled up once a year. There is a solar panel system as well that provides electricity to the home and shed. The large garage holds the panel for the solar system and a generator. Six vehicles easily fit in this space with room for a workshop and additional loft storage. The acreage is an in-holding surrounded by San Isabel National Forest and there is a grazing lease in place with a local cattle company. Water rights from a ditch and a spring are included in the sale. A unique feature is the original homestead cabin. It is still a functional bunk house space with a kitchenette, shower, and a pot-belly stove. The well includes a 1200 gallon cistern that is filled and used for additional pressure into the home. Perfect for quiet living away from the city, but still set up with all the modern necessities including internet service. This is true Colorado living.
