Activities & Amenities
Rural life on the land describes this very private horse property located in the high country of central Colorado. This property is a rare find in Chaffee County having 40 acres with no homeowners association, covenants, power lines or other intrusions to restrict your enjoyment of the land. Offering ultimate privacy, while being only 10 minutes from downtown Buena Vista. The property is fully fenced with a corral, stalls, loafing shed and a barn with insulated tack room and workshop wired for 110 and 220 with ample storage and plenty of work space for many projects. There is abundant wildlife for viewing or hunting, with mule deer, pronghorn antelope and elk traveling through the property during much of the year. The County road is regularly maintained and snow is plowed by the County in the winter. This road is not a through road which provides for very limited traffic throughout the year. An additional benefit is that the property located across the County Road is owned by Adventures Unlimited which creates a wonderful view shed that is unlikely to ever be obstructed by future development. The home is built of Swedish Cope Manufactured logs, which are cut to be very uniform and provide for a very secure fit between the logs. The "Man Cave" area is 384 Square feet that is perfect for your pool table/game room, or to accomodate guests and the wood stove provides for that extra mountain feel. The loft adds an additional 130 Square feet of relaxation area with great views of Mt. Princeton. The exterior was refinished in 2018 and the decking was refinished in the spring of 2019. The home is move in ready and includes a cord of fire wood, ladders for maintenance and window cleaning, a propane generator for backup power, a snowblower for clearing the driveway, a lawn mower, propane grill with tank, and a 1000 gallon main propane tank to take advantage of lower summer fuel prices. Finally, the layout of the property allows for huge mountain views as well as down valley views, while maintaining the privacy and shelter of the tall pine trees to the North and West side of the home.
Buena Vista is an Outdoor Recreational Paradise. Elevation Outdoors Magazine recently released a poll rating Buena Vista as the “Best Mountain Town in the Rockies”, beating number two by a huge margin. With 85% of the County being public lands, the outdoor opportunities are boundless. From hiking (Chaffee County has the highest concentration of 14,000 foot peaks in the country), to Rafting and Kayaking on the world renown Arkansas River. The only thing holding you back is your imagination.
