Property description

This lovely home is snugly tucked into the very top edge of a 9,000ft. ridge, boasting spectacular 180 degree views over the Cimarron and the Sneffels ranges. The house is secluded at the very end of the road with it’s own cul de sac, hence no traffic other than that which is intended for this address.
There are two bedrooms upstairs one with a kingsize bed featuring a beautiful hand made quilt and ensuite bathroom and bidet, the second, also used as an office has a very comfortable full size futon and a full bathroom across the hall.
The main area upstairs incorporates large living area with gas fireplace, dining area and spacious kitchen, cathedral ceiling and full length windows looking out onto the wraparound deck to maximize the breathtaking views. There is a gas barbecue grill on the upper deck. The fully equipped kitchen with Italian porcelain tile counters, granite sink, fridge with ice-maker, second fridge for drinks, smooth top range, dishwasher and compactor is a cook’s dream. The large island has four stools and the attached dining area seats eight with built in leaves in the dining table. 
Phone, satellite flat screen TV and WIFI is available.
Large laundry has front load washer and dryer and Italian porcelain tiled floor, the main area has solid wood floors and Berber carpet in the bedrooms. We personally designed and custom built this home for retirement, an escape from the Phoenix summers and utilized quality materials for beauty and comfort. Custom made Roman shades at all windows and doors offer the most expansive views and extra insulation.
  Downstairs is a beautiful large walk out basement area with in-floor heat and Berber carpet, a small gas fire for ambience, comfortable queen size sleeper with down comforter and identical 180 degree views of valley and mountains with full bathroom - when we are in residence we use this for our family and friends accommodation. There are two fold away beds also available.
Roads are open all year and there is much to offer for recreation in every season whether you are looking for a relaxing break from the world with a glass of wine on the deck or a good book by the fire, enjoying stunning sunsets or high energy sports in the mountains! The fabulous Telluride ski resort is less than an hour drive for snow sports in winter and hiking and biking and jeeping other seasons. Cross country skiing and snowshoeing from the door.
The famous Swiss- like town of Ouray is only 30 minutes drive, offering unique stores and restaurants and trailheads for hiking, biking and ATV’s
The National forrest is only minutes away.
The little town of Ridgway is 8 miles down the mountain, offering quaint stores, antiques and a variety of restaurants, including first rate Thai food and the award winning Colorado Boy Brewery with their fabulous pizzas. Bicycle rental and fishing excursions are available in the town.
Our friends and family have enjoyed many wonderful vacations with all there is to offer locally, excellent restaurants, unique stores and antiquing for the less energetic.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We are each from coastal regions, one from Boston the other from Australia so our first love may have been the ocean but the lure of the cool mountains and the opportunity for family and friends to also enjoy winter sports made this location ideal. We needed a retirement escape from the oppressive heat of the AZ desert summers and everyone who has ever visited in any season has fallen in love with our mountain retreat.

Why the Owner Chose Ridgway:
In the mid 1990's we visited friends who had a cabin on this unique ridge overlooking pine and aspen forested valleys and mountain ranges. The first morning when we awoke to find three large bucks with huge antlers snoozing outside our bathroom window sold us on the area, the breathtaking views only cemented this goal! Since then we have observed multiple examples of the local wildlife, birds from tiny finches and brilliant bluebirds to Golden and Bald Eagles, elk, mountain lion and Black Bear. Our visitors highlight is likely to be a bear sighting!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are only about 10 homes with this unique position and views and the enticement of living in a pristine forest of wildlife, the laid back lifestyle and a wonderful climate was irresistible so we determined to seek a lot on this same ridge. When this two acre lot came available, in spite of the challenges of building up here, we jumped at the chance to purchase the property and then with great care and loving attention to detail we built our home here in 2000.
