Now THIS home has soaring views in all directions! This stunning home on 35 acres overlooks the picturesque Pine River Valley, the Town of Bayfield, and the mountains beyond, where you can enjoy the scenic beauty that makes Southwest Colorado so special. With abundant irrigation water and no covenants, this property enjoys the convenience of living close to town as well as rural amenities. This home has been lovingly custom built and maintained with high quality features, including grand leaded glass door and sidelights at the entrance to the home, dramatic curved staircase, two-story walls of windows, Brazilian cherry flooring, crown molding, elegant gas fireplace, and this is just the beginning. The main level comprises all the daily living of the home, including an open living and dining room, private office, family/great room, fully equipped kitchen, main bedroom suite with adjoining laundry room, and powder room for your guests. The kitchen is warm and inviting, with a large island, custom cherry cabinets with deep drawers and wine rack, slab granite countertops, new Bosch refrigerator and dishwasher, 5 burner cooktop, double ovens, trash compactor, butler’s baking area and walk-in pantry. Notice the handsome curved molding, wainscot and built-in storage in the office. Right off the great room you will find the main bedroom suite, which opens to the deck in the back of the home, close to the hot tub, where you can have a relaxing soak under the stars. The spacious bathroom boasts a 5-piece bath, with separate vanities, large tile shower, separate jetted tub, and huge walk-in closet with built-in safe. The laundry room next to the master closet includes Maytag front-loading washer and dryer on pedestals, sink and refrigerator/freezer. Upstairs are two separate areas: one has two bedrooms with connecting full bathroom, and the other is a great den and pool room, with bar sink and refrigerator, and panoramic views of the valley below. Comfort is key here, with central air conditioning, full house water filtration system, and HVAC air filtration system as well. The huge deck alongside the entire back of the home is built to take in the natural setting, with custom-built seating, planters and see-through railing, and is the place to be outside the home. The home has low-maintenance stucco siding which was just completed in 2021. Detached yet close to the house via a brick and concrete walkway, you will find a roomy three car garage that also has a fabulous heated workshop with double doors, storage room above the length of the building, pantry and lawn equipment storage rooms, and a lovely concrete apron that matches the walkways. The exquisitely landscaped grounds are done right, with drip irrigation systems and mostly perennial flowerbeds, plus two greenhouses and raised garden beds if growing things is your delight. A variety of fruit and evergreen trees have been planted. Enjoy the soothing sounds of the water feature with waterfall and bridge. The matching heated storage building houses the well pump, and a Generac generator is installed for any backup power needs. The property has been fire mitigated, and irrigation water is provided through the Arrowhead Project (irrigation shares held for 3 properties). Two acres of the property is fenced around the home, with plenty of paved parking, and an electronic gated entry with wrought-iron gates (including lovely live flowers planted on the gates). This home is conveniently located 20 minutes from the airport and Mercy hospital, and 30 minutes to Durango. This one-owner home is a special and rare opportunity. Seller owns over 70 acres and the home can be sold on the larger parcel for $1,495,000 or on 35 acres for $1,250,000.
