The L Carly Ranch is a charming 2BR/1B log-sided cabin cleverly located on 16.31 acres of land that border BLM. The owners set the home deep into the acreage for maximum privacy, keeping an open meadow buffer between the home and road while maintaining its unique view to the Rocky Mountains. Several small outbuildings round out the property along with a 10gmp well, septic, electric and phone. The entry to the cabin is quite charming and the deck off the west end is protected and adorned by tall Ponderosa Pine. The west end of the cabin is filled with windows for beautiful views over the property and off to the soaring mountains in the distance. An addition was added that currently serves as a large family/entertainment room with complete privacy from the home. Carpeted with closets and plenty of windows, plus a bay window and a loft with a ladder complete this large room that could serve new owners in multiple ways. The driveway comes in from the north across the grassy meadow buffer, and south of the cabin is BLM, making it very private and woodsy. There is room for a horse or two, barn and corrals for the equestrian, and lots of roads to ride. The L CARLY RANCH is not too big and it’s not too small. I would say it’s just right.
Located in Custer County north of Hwy 96 and west of Hwy 165. Accessed mostly by state hwy and county maintained roads, the distance on un-maintained roads is appx. 1.75 miles. Enough distance to keep out the multitudes but not enough to make it a rough going. Just right.
Land is mostly level and good soil, tree cover around the cabin is excellent. Driveway is straight and raised up enough to keep it dry if owner keeps the snow off in winter. Plenty of privacy and views along with an excellent well producing 10 gallons per minute. Well is in house use only.
The Arkansas River is under an hours drive north for some of the best fly-fishing and white water rafting you’ll ever enjoy. Lake DeWeese is only 5 minutes north of Westcliffe and boating and water skiing are popular as are kayaking and shore fishing. The Sangre de Cristos offer high mountain lakes stocked with trout for those who want to hike into a more private setting and the pristine nature of the scenery is beyond your wildest dreams. If you’re lucky you might be visited by a herd of mountain goat wandering down from their lofty perches to drink from the cool, high, lakes while you’re fly-fishing, so don’t forget your camera. Winters will find the hardy folks out on Lake DeWeese, ice fishing in their shanties, the radios playing a favorite tune. Monarch Ski area is an hour and a half drive from Westcliffe with excellent snow skiing and each fall hunting enthusiasts from all over the country descend upon Westcliffe to test their skill against the Elk, Mule Deer, Bear, Turkey and Lion that populate Custer County.
Home, 2 sheds, electric, water well and septic system, satellite dish, outdoor fire pit, sidewalks and covered decks. Covered deck entry into mud room and electricity is set up to switch over to a generator system should grid go down.
The L CARLY RANCH would make a nice full-time residence or a second home. It is well-built and well-cared for, with only the normal maintenance regarding the log siding at this altitude needing to be done.
