If you are looking for a luxurious western Colorado off-grid retreat with complete Prepper property attributes, you need not look any further. The Red Cone Retreat was constructed with complete self-sufficiency in mind--inside AND out. The compound has one (1) share of Lone Cone Ditch water for irrigation which is piped underground in 4" PVC to the property from a head gate located on the National Forest about 1/3 mile away. The ditch water is used to water the large fenced vegetable garden, complete with numerous fruit trees and also fills two small ponds for additional water storage. Water from the ponds can be pumped to water the numerous planted trees surrounding the off-grid retreat as well as the numerous flower gardens around the house and in the tranquility garden. A detached, wood stove heated and insulated, 4-car garage provides plenty of room for storage of equipment, vehicles and tools. There is a 10 x 10 loafing shed and the property used to house the owner's horses for use on the incredible equestrian trails, hiking trails and biking trails into the National Forest--right off of the property. A small greenhouse allows for winter vegetable gardening or starting vegetables prior to planting season.
