About the Property
Privacy, Silence, Unwind in park like setting. Single to Family Retreate Home
Quiet and peace abound on these 3.5 acres and paths lead you to Spanish Creek. The home brings the outside in and views of the old trees and the sculpted Phoenix round house. (Additionally available, sleeps 2)
Comfortable "Green" two story post and beam structure with straw bale insulation making it cool in summer and warm in winter. The two roomy bedrooms upstairs accessed by a wide circular staircase provide magnificent views of the fourteen thousand foot Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the Great Sand Dunes National Monument - along with a relaxing jet bath tub to restore your body.
On the first floor you will find a well stocked kitchen, small bedroom, bath with shower and living room with sliding door access to the patio bringing the outside in and a view of the sculpted Phoenix on the owners small private space.
Warm and cozy with radiant floor heating, a wood stove in the sitting/dining room and solar thermal installation keep energy use low. Sip your morning coffee on the downstairs sun watching the birds fly through your backyard. In the evening, enjoy a glass of your favorite beverage watching the sun set over the San Juan mountains. At night step out on the upstairs deck and have your breath taken away as you gaze at an infinity of stars above the mountain peaks.
This Casita has been enjoyed as an incredible meditation retreat space, romantic get-away, writer's workshop and more. If have additional guest and would like to consider renting this home for an extra dwelling please let me know in your message that you are interested.
