Grand Junction house description

This charming 70's A-frame sits on 2.5 acres of high desert that borders Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land. It has fantastic views of the Grand Mesa, the Bookcliffs, the Colorado National Monument and the lights of downtown Grand Junction at night!

The Gunny Loop trail is within 100 yards of the house and provides access to the Tabeguache trail system for miles of mountain biking or hiking right out the door! The west entrance to the Colorado National Monument is about 10 minutes from the house. Downtown Grand Junction with all it's shops, restaurants, and activities is about 10 minutes in the other direction! The Colorado and Gunnison Rivers are within 2 miles and two rafting companies are headquartered in the Grand Valley. Wineries, museums, theaters and golf courses are nearby.

While the house sits in a high desert, high alpine environments are as close as an hour away. The Grand Mesa provides beautiful scenary and access to many activities including hiking, fishing, downhill and nordic skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing. Telluride, Aspen/Snowmass, and Beaver Creek are all about 2 1/2 hours away.

Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park are within a 2 1/2 hour dirve to the west in Utah. The Black Canyon National Park is about an hour and a half drive to the south. There is literally something for everyone!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1976

              About the owner: My late husband had this house built in 1976. He loved living here while teaching in the local school system. I'm from Tennessee and this house has been our vacation home. It has served as our base for a wide variety of activities in the area while also serving as a peaceful retreat. I hope you find it to be the same for you.

              Why the Owner Chose Grand Junction:
              My husband chose to live and teach in the Grand Valley because of the beauty of the area and the wide variety of activities available from this location. I chose to continue to enjoy this area for the same reasons. I love this place and have found that the kindness and friendliness of the people in the area is equivalent to what we call 'southern hospitality' in Tennessee!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The trails in the canyons behind and across the street from the house make it easy to just go out and take a walk or ride a mountain bike. It is so special to start and end each day with these awesome views as the lighting changes across the valley. At night the moon rises over the Grand Mesa and the stars are so bright! We've gone up the road a few miles to parking areas for trail heads and watched meteor showers and other astronomical events in complete darkness. At bedtime the lights in the town in the valley sparkle amid the silhouettes of the mountains all around.
