Property Description

WHY MONTROSE? Every imaginable outdoor adventure awaits you just minutes from this home - fishing, skiing, hiking, biking, traveling, fine wines, international cultures and cuisines, etc. It's quick to drive up to Telluride or over to Crested Butte for world-class skiing, or a short trip up to the family-friendly slopes at Powderhorn Ski Resort. Since Montrose is a farming community, as you drive to and from town you’ll enjoy pastoral views of green fields, cows, horses and other livestock, and a highly sophisticated network of water irrigation channels … everywhere you go you’ll see bubbling flowing water. WHY THIS HOUSE? "Oh give me land, lots of land, underneath the starry skies..." :) This home feels like it is “out in the country” even though it is just minutes from the quaint Old Town Montrose. Perched on the highest spot of land in this subdivision (and the largest lot size, at 0.39 acres) you’ll be mesmerized by the big blue sky and views of the surrounding mountains. It is super close to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, for your endless exploration. And the two major roads (Hwy 550 & Hwy 50) which connect Montrose to other parts of Colorado are near enough that you can get outta dodge quickly when adventure calls. Completed in 2020, this home is practically brand new … and it is picture perfect and ready for immediate move in. It was built by one of the most respected builders in our area: Michael Bussing of Cypress Homes. When you first arrive, you’ll be captivated by the xeric landscaping which consists of gorgeous multi-colored decorative gravel, placed to create the look of a flowing river! The curb appeal of the home is highlighted by modern ledgestone and stucco finishes. The cool front porch will likely become your favorite hangout spot - protected by an ample-sized porch roof, it has a HUGE view of the Sneffels mountain range to the south, and of the Uncompahgre National Forest to the west. As you enter the home, your eye sweeps upward to the vaulted ceiling over the Great Room, and off to the side you’ll discover an upper shelf to hold your favorite decorator items. The kitchen is hiding just beyond the wrap around bar punctuated by decorative pendant lights hanging down, forming an eye-catching entertainment setting. Once inside the kitchen, you’ll delight in its large practical layout and the all-stainless appliances … it is fabulous for foodies and cooks feeding a crowd. Next to the kitchen is a dining area that spills right out to the backyard via a sliding glass door … awesome for indoor/outdoor gatherings. As you walk around a corner, you’ll find the Master Bedroom which is quietly located on the opposite side of the house from the guest bedrooms - its two windows make it bright and sunny, and the Master Closet has an efficient organizer system built in. The Master Bath feels decadent with dual sinks and brushed nickel trim. Throughout the living areas of the home you’ll enjoy maintenance-free LVT (luxury vinyl tile) with a handsome wood plank pattern, and carpet in the bedrooms for barefoot comfort. Your climate is fine tuned via central air heat and AC, plus a stylish stainless ceiling fan in the Living Room. This floor plan is highly practical with two linen closets, a broom closet, and a pantry in the kitchen ... plus the oversized laundry room doubles as a mudroom when coming in from the garage. The extra-spacious back yard is ready for you to transform into your own personal paradise … it is a blank canvas waiting to be painted upon! The backyard has large mature trees that spill over from beyond the fence, providing abundant greenery and home for many birds. And the Seller is already underway putting in a new fence on the east side of the backyard, to provide privacy for your outdoor living area. This is a unique opportunity to purchase a new picture perfect home that is ready to move into immediately. Don't miss this one, call right away!
