Description

Featured in the Wall Street Journal, this is a must see for those wanting Colorado Mountain Living. Cherokee Park Aspen Lodge is a custom built, off-the-grid luxury home on a property that was homesteaded in 2001. The land is approximately 35 acres surrounded by Roosevelt National Forest and State Land. This luxury mountain home is private and secluded, sitting at 8650 ft. of elevation, the property has breathtaking views of the Mummy Range and Roosevelt National Forest in all directions. Surrounded by lodge pole and blue spruce pine forests and massive aspen groves, the property also features seeded forage pastures for horses and sheep. Excellent rotational grazing practices have been implemented for 15 years and pasture grass is available for 8 months of the year. Property is completely fenced in with 10 strand field fence, reinforced with cattle panels and an interior buck and pole fence for horses; horse, dog & sheep safe (no barbed wire). An outdoorsman's paradise, you can access the National Forest directly from the property by 3 different gates in the perimeter fence. Moose, elk, deer, mountain lion, bobcats, wild turkeys and more are seen daily on the property and surrounding forest areas. Come enjoy endless horseback riding or hiking trails, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, 4WD and off-roading, hunting, hiking, trout fishing in streams, beaver ponds and high mountain lakes and more!

The house itself is a modern day marvel, featuring 4747 sq feet of luxury and sustainability. Constructed using SIPS (structural insulated panels), hard coat stucco exterior and rocks from the property, plus all exterior wood posts and accents were harvested from trees on the property. Inside the home has 2 complete and separate living quarters with the main house featuring 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a main floor master, gourmet kitchen with professional appliances, an open concept great room/dining/kitchen, loft with guest area, year-round sun room, hand cut sandstone counters throughout and oversized laundry. The guest rooms and master feature their own fireplace. The garden level apartment features 1 bedroom, 1 study/sewing room, living room, 5 piece bath, kitchen and laundry, plus a beautiful patio with stunning views. Can be used as a separate living quarters or use as a game room or guest house. The home also features 2 car garage and car port, indoor/outdoor dog runs, attic storage, 2nd story composite deck, outdoor shower and solar hot tub.

The property also includes a metal, pole barn complex (50x30) with hay loft, lean-to and corrals; heated/insulated workshop, custom chicken coop with protected outdoor area, automatic frost free waterer, propane connection, 12vDC Solar system, stalls, tack room, concrete floors and hot water. There is also a horse arena (100 x 60), outbuilding (12 x 14) and insulated Tuff shed (10 x 12).

The property is 100% Off-Grid, powdered by a Photovoltaic solar system (owned), designed and installed professionally by Alternative Power Enterprises in Colorado in 2014 with 5.7KW 48V DC of power. The system also features a 1000 w/hr wind generator providing AC power directly to the house. Automatic backup generator system is run by Outback/Mate Software and visible and manageable online with Optics RE Software so you can monitor the system from anywhere online! The house is so energy efficient with its R44 value (from the SIPS) and the automated heating system that no temperature adjustments are ever needed - the house remains a consistent 69-70 degrees year round (this can be adjusted based on preference and the computer will reset). Between the thermal mass of the stone on the house, the in floor radiant heat system and the

SIPs, the house uses virtually no backup heating from the Prestige boiler - it runs mainly on solar hot water. Propane use is less than 1,000 gals per year for the last 14 years. 1,000 gal propane tank buried on the property and not visible; filled 1-2 times annually. The Well was permitted and dug in 1968, is 280 ft deep with a water table at 30 ft and provides a minimum of 15gal/min of clean, untreated water making it a truly exceptional well that is suspected to be tapped into an aquifer!
