Ridgway house description

Enjoy the Wild West minus the wild: The Art Barn is the impeccable combination of the western spirit and modern luxury.

With a contemporary kitchen, wireless internet, two and a half bathrooms, floor heating, two fireplaces and two bedrooms (1 is a loft) you can feel like a cowboy, minus the chafing.

The Art Barn is solitude in its purest form, as well as a truly stunning and unique property nestled on San Juan Mesa, Colorado, surrounded by the LaSalle Mountains. Minimalist, with clean lines, light wood and floor-to-ceiling windows, it is the perfect blend of western cool and modern aestheticism. About 40 minutes from Telluride and 25 minutes from Ridgway, the Art Barn is the ideal place to get away from it all and enjoy nature. Inviting decks let you see as far as Utah, and overlook a sloping meadow that alternates between glittering snow, colorful summer wildflowers and striking fall hues of gold and orange.

A true, tranquil paradise, elk and deer roam by in herds, the quiet nearly complete—the grass really is greener here. All this, along with a state of the art 1000-square-foot, fully equipped artists studio make it the ultimate getaway for writers, artists, musicians or anyone who just wants to relax. The studio was designed with artists and sculptors in mind—its floor-to-ceiling doors can be opened fully to move large objects—but it can easily be transformed into additional bedrooms.

However, should the mood strike, visit the beautiful old mining town of Telluride for award-winning dining, upscale shops and boutiques, as well as a huge array of spas and health services.

If it's adventure you seek, there's no shortage of options nearby. From hiking and biking to skiing, heli-skiing and whitewater rafting, there's no adrenaline rush you won't get here.

              Location

              The Art Barn is a truly stunning as well as incredibly unique property nestled on San Juan Mesa, CO, surrounded by the LaSalle Mountains. Inviting decks let you see as far as Utah, and overlook a sloping meadow that alternates between glittering snow, colorful summer wildflowers and striking fall hues of gold and orange.

              A true, tranquil paradise, elk and deer roam by in herds and the quiet nearly complete.

              However, only about 40 minutes from Telluride and 25 minutes from Ridgway, the Art Barn also allows you to be social and go out on the town should the mood strike. Exchange your quiet paradise for award-winning restaurants, unforgetabble skiing, a huge array of spa and health services as well as upscale shops and boutiques. In town, organize anything from heli-skiing to whitewater rafting, or, explore one of themany many hiking and biking trails.

              Whether it's utter silence and meditative nature you seek, adrenaline pumping adventure or even five star-dining and spas, the Art Barn is for you.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: I was originally born in Austria and have lived in Vienna, New York, Paris and Munich over the years. I am an independent gallerist and an art dealer, hence you will find a lot of contemporary art in and around the Art Barn. Having traveled the world, the furniture is a wonderfully eclectic mix collected from all continents and cultures. My family and I have a home nearby. We try to split our time equally between living in the USA and Europe.

              Why the Owner Chose Ridgway:
              We built this home with a well-known Austrian architect. The Barn is both utterly luxurious with top-of-the-line amenities, as well as totally eclectic, full of contemporary art and with furniture from all over the world. It is also completely private—you won't see anything but herds of elk and deer. Having grown up near the Alps, we still prefer the rugged and limitless freedom of the Rocky Mountains, and the Barn perfectly showcases this ruggendess, and is built to highlight and blend in with the surrounding nature. The view is completely one-of-a-kind, and the sunsets are second to none.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Peace, solitude, nature, luxury of space and complete and utter privacy. There's also a fully equipped artist's studio.
