Description

located in a valley, where in 1862 Colonel John Francisco proclaimed that ''This is paradise enough for me,'' sits a charming and eloquent compound that is timeless and possibly one of the most beautiful settings in southern Colorado. 441.42 acres of optimal ranch land sits along Hwy 12, the Scenic Highway of Legends. Views of the Spanish Peaks, the Devil's Stair step, Raspberry Mt. the Culebra. Range and the other surrounding mountains are absolutely breathtaking, and not to be missed through the large glass floor to ceiling walls on the south, east and north side of the main house. The glass walls open to the deck that overlooks the Cuchara River as it meanders, over a mile, through the property, gathering in the front entry pond, the bridge pond and spilling down gentle waterfalls.The main house has been masterfully planned with birds eye maple flooring, custom cabinetry made from reclaimed barn wood, and antique metal roofing. Upstairs is an open loft, accessible from cantilevered stairs that add drama to the open living area. A 20 foot kiva fireplace tucks into a corner, not to take away the drama from the windows, and provides a lovely, flickering fire on cold and snowy days. The cozy master suite, with a roomy walk-in closet, is connected by a walking bridge overlooking the river and where rustic dry stack retaining walls weave their way behind and around the main house and the master suite unit.Down the treed lane is the stunning carriage barn with three stalls, a wash stall, and a delightful ranch manager apartment upstairs.In addition, there is an equipment barn with six stalls, including the high bay working areas. This main barn also contains a guest suite, office and an art/pottery studio. Both barns feature in-floor radiant heat throughout. There are approximately 150 acres of beautiful mountain meadows, nine river hay meadows and one large upper meadow that has well water piped to three upper stock tanks. The upper meadow includes a round pen and two working arenas. German brown trout, rainbow trout and brookies are stocked in a 1.2 acre pond. This truly is paradise enough!
