Pagosa Springs house description

5 MINUTE DRIVE FROM DOWNTOWN/25 MINUTES TO WOLF CREEK!!! Come enjoy our beautifully decorated home in “The Pines of Pagosa Springs”. PLEASE NOTE: TEMPURPEDIC KING MATTRESS, ANTLER CHANDELIER, RADIANT FLOOR HEATING, 1200 COUNT ITALIAN LINENS, BEAUTIFUL WOOD FLOORING THROUGHOUT, GALLERY-QUALITY ART, HAND PAINTED DINNER PLATES, FULLY FENCED 0.5 ACRE YARD, 4 COVERED DECKS SURROUNDED BY ADJACENT VACANT LOTS, FULLY ACCESSORIZED GOURMET KITCHEN. Just up the hill from Pagosa’s renowned natural hot springs and spa), near great golfing, fishing, Parelli Training Center, restaurants and a short drive to Wolf Creek ski resort, it's ideal for avid thrill-seekers, or those searching peace and quiet in a private Ponderosa-shaded yard.

Come enjoy beautiful sunsets with views of the foothills from one of four covered decks for relaxation. Over 60 surrounding mature Ponderosas and fans make summer temperatures just right (a portable SWAMP COOLER stored in master bedroom closet is available if needed for the upstairs). This three bedroom two full bath home sleeps up to EIGHT ADULTS or 6 adults + 3 kids: Tempurpedic King in master, Queen in downstairs bedroom; Queen pull out couch in living room and a full+twin bunk (100 lb max top bunk) in third bedroom. The master bath has a JET TUB for soaking after an exhilarating day of powder skiing. Home provides stereo system, wireless high-speed internet, CABLE TV, DVD/CD/Wii console+2 Wii remotes (in living room; for the Wii: BRING OWN FAVORITE GAMES); and an electric BBQ (DUE TO FIRE DANGER regulations). Park out of the elements in the garage.

Partake in three season access to the four stocked ponds (daily/weekly passes available at the rec center) or using the Fairfield Rec Center (daily/weekly fees apply). The more experienced angler may easily access the San Juan River, Lake Hatcher, and other blue ribbon trout lakes and streams. The home is just yards from the legendary Fairfield 36-hole golf course, a 3 minute drive from the recreation Center/pool and not far from amazing hiking in one of our country's largest wilderness.

Without the usual expense/hustle of comparable accommodations, come and stay at our affordable, accessible, clean and peaceful dream getaway. We love the hammocks hanging off the Ponderosas in the shaded backyard for lounging, bird/deer watching (several deer visit our backyard throughout the day in spring/fall), and the four covered decks (2 upstairs and two downstairs for just relaxing. Since our home is surrounded on both sides by four vacant lots, privacy is assured; and though the home offers all the advantages of the Pines subdivision (e.g. pool/rec center/shopping/restaurants/coffee shops/Tennis/mini-gulf/lakes/hiking etc), it feels like being in the woods....the deer sure love it. Together with the adjacent lot, there's now about a half acre, FENCED Ponderosa grove yard for your private enjoyment.
It's our wish that you'll truly enjoy your visit at our home:our family certainly does..........every time we're lucky to visit......

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Jim was raised not far from Pagosa Springs, in lovely Santa Fe, New Mexico, and hiked the Weminuche as a kid. His spouse is an East Coast transplant from Conn., who fell in love with Pagosa upon her first visit. Our home in the Pines of Pagosa is our dream-come-true-get-away from the bustle and noise of city life: where our children can watch Humming-birds feeding, the deer visiting in their own backyard or the occasional bear; it's where they can experience great fishing (our daughter holds a record of 16 fish at one sitting) not far from the house. In essence, a place where wonderful memories are being made to last a lifetime..............

                      Why the Owner Chose Pagosa Springs:
                      We love the outdoors and Pagosa Springs has wonderful year-round adventure opportunities. Peace and quiet are often interrupted by the wind chimes hanging off the Ponderosas. Humming birds come to visit whenever we fill their feeders.....Occasional deer graze amongst the ponderosas (we have a salt-lick by the rocks) and the pure mountain air is a treat as one just relaxes in the rock-strewn yard (the kids were so excited to find some fossilized rocks in one of the boulders out the back!!), each visit brings new wonders!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Plentiful powder and first to open Colorado ski resort at Wolf Creek Ski area in the winter, feisty trout in the summer, hiking among the largest US Wilderness, some of Colorado's most beautiful fall colors, water falls and mountain scenery. Year-round soaking in Pagosa Hot Springs with full spa options for complete relaxation.
