Activities & Amenities
Situated on 40 scenic acres outside the tranquil mountain and farming community of Rye, Colorado, this authentic replica of a 17th century Cotswold cottage is one of the most unique properties available in the Rocky Mountain West. The home features stone construction and a slate roof, as well as hardwood floors and numerous architectural elements that exude the environment of a traditional English country home.
A stately great room, with its majestic fireplace and exposed beams, seemingly transports visitors back centuries. A spacious, well-appointed kitchen, complete with a large island, offers modern conveniences while maintaining the home’s unique character. French doors lead to an expansive brick terrace with unmatched mountain views.
Upstairs, the master bedroom includes a reading area, and an en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. The full basement includes a wine cellar (complete with an antique suit of armor), a spacious vault, and abundant remaining space for an office, home gym, workshop, and additional bedrooms. The home has landline phone and internet service, radiant in-floor heating, and an ultra-efficient electric thermal storage system. (Construction notes: the home is built from stone, concrete, and steel; has double-wall construction; and 8-inch foam insulation.)
(The home’s numerous antique furnishings (including furniture, cabinets, paintings, rugs, silver, sculptures, and more), predominantly from the 1700s, are to be included in a sale. A comprehensive list is available to qualified buyers.)
Adjacent to a walled garden, a separate guest house, built from cedar and designed in the style of an 1850s American farmhouse, features a loft and an antique stove, and can comfortably sleep at least three adults. (Furnishings are included.)
A small greenhouse is attached to the home. The detached one-car garage includes workshop space. And, an enclosed courtyard, just west of the main house, provides outdoor cooking, dining, and entertaining space.
The remainder of the property includes approximately 30 acres of woods and 10 acres of open meadows, offering ample space for future barns, stables, and pasture. The property has a productive domestic well, allowing for household use, watering livestock, and limited irrigation.
Located just over one mile from a paved county road, the property is accessed via a well-maintained private road with keypad-gate access. The San Isabel National Forest is just two miles west, and Pueblo is 30 miles northeast. It’s a quick 77-mile trip (generally just over one hour) to the Colorado Springs airport.
