Newer Golden Eagle 2-story log home (built in 2008) with a home theater on an 8.29 acre lot that borders the Rio Grande National Forest on its north side.
This property has nice landscape work and an unusual Artesian well (a natural fountain in normal rainfall years) of great-tasting naturally cool water, a stream that flows during spring snow melt and a large hill on the lot that rises about 85 feet from the home's elevation at 8210 feet.
The River Island Ranch Property Owners Association the property is in has a large clubhouse and two extra cabins on the Island in the Rio Grande River for owners and their (extra) guests use. This RIR island and area also provides 3 miles of Gold Metal rated (by U.S. Fish & Game) trout fishing river access - to the longest stretch of this rating in Colorado, where less than 2% of the rivers and streams are rated at this coveted level.
The property has low property taxes since most of its land is zoned agricultural due to the ranch horses that are permitted to occasionally take a stroll around there.
The property also includes a refundable golf membership to the Rio Grande Club that is valued at $35K. The loan on the property is assumable.
The home is nicely appointed, has modern rustic furniture and a nice home theater.
The open kitchen is great for entertaining and features stainless steel appliances, a pop-up downdraft range hood and granite bar/counter tops with 4 bar stools. The dining room set can seat 6 people.
