Buena Vista house description

Welcome to Mt. Ralphmore!

Absolutely the best in every way...location, scenic views & price. This mountain retreat is built in the Heart of the Colorado Rockies(more 14,000' mountains here than anywhere else in North America), breath-taking mountain views in every direction, best view of the famous Chalk Cliffs.

Overlooks & constructed on the banks of the beautiful Chalk Creek w/ floor to ceiling windows.. Enjoy the beauty (magnificent) & sounds of nature (bubbling creek below), watch the wildlife (deer, elk, fox) fish, hike or sit out on the 40' plus wrap around porch. The large screened in porch is great for outdoor eating and relaxing as well.

This is a warm & wonderfully built abode w/ all the comforts & amenities (maybe more) of home. With 3 full baths and 6 separate vanities, everyone gets accommodated.

Mt. Ralphmore is located just 15 min. & 23 min. respectively from the historic towns of Buena Vista & Salida, where charm, dining, shopping & galleries abound!

The San Isabel National Forest, St. Elmo (famous ghost town & great place to feed the chipmunks or rent jeeps/snowmobiles), Mt Princeton Hot Springs (Colorado's #1 hot springs)& the Arkansas River (great rafting or fly fishing) are all right here.

Monarch, Ski Cooper & Copper Ski Resorts are all 35-45 min. away, as is Leadville (lots of history there). Breckenridge is just a bit over an hour & Vail is 1 hr. & 30 min. Located 90 miles from Colorado Springs, flying in & out is easy.

Plenty of activities to enjoy year round. The best place to take a family, take a friend, take a break & take a vacation!

          Mt. home is just one mile from natural hot springs and all that has to offer. Kids and adults enjoy the year round pools and springs and spa. Another wonderful short and beautiful drive is on up the road to St. Elmo, old historic ghost town with seasonal offroading vehicles, feeding the chipmunks and antiquing. Great spots to sled in the winter months. Agnes Falls, another short drive up the road, one can hike up and see gorgeous sights all in under an hour.

          About the owner: We live in Dallas, have a career in real estate and a passion for design. We enjoy sharing what we have been blessed with!

          Why the Owner Chose Buena Vista:
          We have been coming to this area for over 40 yrs. We built in this particular area because it is in such close proximity to all that Colorado has to offer. The view is tremendous and the location fabulous. It just does not get any better than this!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The best home in the area w/ the finest views. A very warm inviting home that sits on three+ acres overlooking Chalk Creek, the Chalk Cliffs, Mt Princeton & Mt Antero. Hearing the bubbling of the creek or viewing the Chalk Cliffs at sunrise, walking down Bunny Lane or driving up to St. Elmo, memories for a lifetime will be made.
