Ridgway chalet description

Beautiful Mountain retreat with breathtaking views. This home sits at 9,000 ft in the San Juan mountains with great hiking, biking and snow sports from the front door. It has 3 bedrooms - large master with queen bed, 2nd bedroom has queen bed and a bunk room that sleeps 4 in built in bunk beds. This home also offers a great room with 21 ft ceilings, walls of glass, a large stone fireplace and state of the art entertainment center, an open kitchen w/stainless appliances, concrete counter tops, large bar, dining table for 10, a screened in porch, over 1200 sq ft of decks with postcard views, an outdoor wood burning fireplace, loft with sectional seating and 50 in' tv and pool table and an on the lower patio there is an outdoor shower and hot tub with privacy and amazing views.

I built this home in 2008 as a place to eventually retire and when designing and building I took great care with the custom details. I used natural local materials such as reclaimed barnwood for floors and beams, natural biodegradable stains and stone from the local mountains.

The views from every window, porch and deck are amazing. From the east and south decks you can enjoy spectacular views of the Cimmaron range and the San Juan Range. From the front porch and north screened porch you will enjoy the serenity of the beautiful mountain stream cascading through the front yard.

Whether you are looking for a summer, fall, winter or spring retreat - you will love the beauty of this setting and all it has to offer.

                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 2008

                                  About the owner: My son and I are avid outdoor enthusiasts. I built this home for he and I and someday his family to enjoy. My son and I come up here to enjoy the fresh air, wildlife and adventure whenever possible. We enjoy all four seasons here. We love to hike, bike, kayak,ride quads and motorcycles and ski and snowboard in the winter. We also really enjoy all that Ridgway, Ouray and Telluride have to offer. I'm in the tourism business and in all my travels this is still the most beautiful place I've found I plan to someday retire in this home but until then I will reside in Carefree AZ.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Ridgway:
                                  10 years ago we visited our friend's ranch in Ridgway and initially fell in love with the beauty of this area and the quint towns of Ridgway, Ouray and Telluride and all the fun bars, restaurants and shops they have to offer. Then we discovered all the endless adventure and we were hooked.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                                  Views, peacefulness, views, incredible weather, views, wildlife, great outdoor activities, adventure and views
