Description

This is a very special property with approximately 1/2 mile of Dolores River frontage. Historically known as "The Potato Patch" early settlers farmed potatoes which were transported by the train up the Dolores River Valley to Telluride and down to Dolores. The 93.5 acres is comprised of 2 tracts; (1.) 85.9 acres and (2.) 7.60 acres. The property is bounded on the east by National Forest. The lay of the land is a mix of irrigated pastures and varies from flat river bottom and benches to steep Aspen covered slopes. The views from the home which occupies a higher bench expand from the Aspen and Cottonwood framed pastures across the valley floor to the pine forests and red sandstone cliffs. Truly magnificent. The improvements consist of a 2 level 4 bedroom home; 40' x 50' equipment shed/shop with loft, outbuildings, coral, RV site with hook ups and old settlers cabin (not habitable but adds color)

The property is ideal for a family wishing to escape from the rush, pressures and realities of the work-a-day world to a place where time stands still and your primary sounds consist of breezes in the surrounding "quakies" (Aspens),

rush of the river and other sounds of nature. The lifestyle opportunity here is unsurpassed. The pastures are ideal for maintaining a number of horses and/or cows. It is just a 20 minute drive to the amenities of Dolores to the south or about 45 minutes to the mountain resort town of Telluride which boasts big mountain skiing and numerous year around festivals in an old Rocky Mountain mining town atmosphere. This property is ideal for year around living or to be used as a mountain retreat. Plenty of room and beautiful sites to build additional homes if desired.
