Dream home with dream views! This custom-built mountain rustic home is a luxury retreat in a stunning location just a couple of miles southeast of the small Colorado town of Crawford. With 5 bedrooms and 5 baths and 5,325 square feet of living space, this home has plenty of room for family and guests. Situated on a 14.89-acre lot, this parcel has roughly 6 irrigated acres for hay production, horse pasture, and greenery, and only a mile away from the nearest store and a couple of miles to the bank, church, or the Montessori school. The views from this property are just terrific, with stunning vistas of Needle Rock and the West Elks Wilderness laid out in front of the property.
The quality of construction in this home rivals that of high-end homes in Aspen and Telluride at a fraction of the price. It features 28-foot open-beam ceilings with massive Douglas fir timbers; over 2,000 square feet of spacious balconies; a custom kitchen with brand-new high-end appliances, including a 6-burner Viking range; a beautiful two-sided gas fireplace; wet bar and wine bar; 5-piece master bath with huge walk-in closet; theater room; 4 guest bedrooms; oversized 3-car garage; spacious dining room; and walk-out basement.
Crawford is known as “recreation central” with Crawford Reservoir, a 344-acre impoundment, less than a mile from the property. Anglers can catch trout, bass, perch, and pike, and it’s a water-ski lake as well. Hunting for elk and mule deer in GMU’s 53 and 63 is excellent, with hunters taking trophy-class game from the surrounding area due to access to thousands of acres of BLM and National Forest lands. Black Mesa, just a few miles south, is a favorite snowmobiling destination, as well as the Grand Mesa to the north. Skiers have a choice of going to Crested Butte a little more than 1.5 hours to the east, Aspen two hours north, or Telluride 2 hours south. It’s relatively close access to fly-fishing in the Gold Medal waters of the Gunnison River, riding in the West Elks, and even taking a wine tour in the nearby vineyards in Paonia and Hotchkiss.
This home has a unique combination of assets that make it very appealing. It sits at approximately 6,500 feet in elevation, ensuring an ideal climate. Not too hot, not too cold, and low in elevation for those who may have difficulty at higher elevations. Controlling 9 shares of water rights, the 6 irrigated acres can be used for raising livestock, gardening, and more. It’s only a mile to the nearest store, and two miles to Crawford, 11 miles to Hotchkiss, so it has easy year-round access. The views are just stunning—some of the most impressive views you’ll ever see—and it offers access to all kinds of recreation. The quality of construction is excellent and you’ll see a lot of value in this home!
