The property was first settled in 1948, with the construction of a comfy but humble log home. The current residents built a custom stucco home next door to the original log home, and eventually joined the two homes together in 2006 for the sake of convenience, creating a total area of 3,702 square feet. The original home has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths; the newer stucco home also has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths; the combined home has a total of 6 bedrooms and 4 baths. The owners live in the stucco home, which has a main level master suite, two upstairs bedrooms & bath, a spacious living area with vaulted ceilings, sunny kitchen, and spacious verandas. The log home makes a nice mother-in-law apartment and has an excellent income history as an AirBnB rental. The home is served by two septic systems and the Ute domestic water company, as well as natural gas and high-speed internet.
This home has its own grid-tied 9.6-kw solar system with a contract to sell power back to the grid. The power bills for this property are very low. Adjacent to the solar panels is a vegetable garden enclosed by an 8-foot game fence to keep deer from nibbling the abundant vegetables grown there. The fields have about 6 acres of open meadows that the owners have irrigated for hay production, producing about 440 bales per year. The stocked fishing pond on the property has healthy populations of bass and other warmwater species.
The Redlands is home to two well-known golf courses—Tiara Rado and The Redlands Mesa Golf Course, which is known as the #1 public golf course in Colorado. Tiara Rado, a municipal course, is less than ½ mile from the subject property, and the Redlands Mesa course is less than 2 miles distant. The Colorado National Monument, which has hundreds of miles of hiking trails, biking trails, and spectacular scenery, is not even a mile to the south. The nearby Grand Mesa offers over 500 square miles of National Forest lands with 300 lakes, and snowmobiling, skiing, fly-fishing, rafting, mountain biking, horseback riding, and hunting.
