Property description

Enter San Juan Paradise @ 7900 feet. You'll be enticed to stay outside, as your jaw drops at the panoramic views. If you find that San Juan Paradise is booked, please still inquire - Cimarron Paradise coming this June -! Upon entering you will discover that views are endless in this upscale artistically custom decorated home with slate floors, a cozy fireplace, dining area, family room and very large kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Relax in the master's comfortable rustic king size bed and shower with pebble stone floor. You can see the reflection of Mt. Sneffels (a 14'000’ peak) while gazing in one of the master bath mirrors. If dry air and hard water don't please you, not to fret, the water is softened and the air humidified. As you make your way down the custom aspen railing to the guest bedrooms, you will first come upon the ‘Bear’ themed bathroom. This bath has custom cabinetry, a bath tub and shower. Enter next the ‘Winter Mountain’ bedroom, which contains all custom aspen furniture; 2 murphy beds, a flat screen TV and plenty of storage space. Across the hall is the 'Queen' room with lodge decor bedding, a desk and walk in closet. Behind the Queen bedroom is a laundry room with washer and dryer for your use. To maximize your outdoor experience in the pleasant weather months, there is a seating area on both the East & West sides of the patio, and a 3rd garden patio area mid level on the East side. There is a propane grill for your use and be sure to take advantage of relaxing in the excellent hot tub year all year round. San Juan Paradise does not disappoint!

Car: Recommended

Ouray County is simply awe inspiring - and San Juan Paradise is engulfed in it's beauty no matter where you are in or outside of the home. This is an ideal retreat for every type of traveler. Hiking, hunting, biking, golfing, snow shoe-ing, and cross country ski-ing right in the neighborhood. Relax in the hot-tub and be prepared to have your breath taken away by the magnificence surrounding you both day and night. Wildlife sightings are a daily treat, as are endless stars and the milky way. Exceptional Panoramic Views - San Juan Mountain Range to the South, Cimmarron Mountain Range to the East & Grand Mesa to the North! Enjoy evening alpenglow, every weather & star phenomena imaginable!

Upscale comfort - a 2000 sq' home facing the San Juan Mountain range is a cedar Lindal A-frame home with a 1500 sq' deck and hot tub. It is beautifully and artistically decorated with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a gourmet kitchen and sky wall. The main living area and master bedroom with a very comfortable king size bed are on the 2nd floor. Downstairs are 2 bedrooms - one with a Queen and another with the two single murphy beds and a Flat screen TV. The roads to your dream are all paved - ahhh. Town is a quick drive 1000 feet below.

A must see right in the neighborhood is Inspiration Point. Here you will feel as if you are standing on top & at the edge of the world. A not to be missed picture spot.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Owner’s have called Arizona and Colorado their home for over 2 decades. With passions as diverse as hiking, ski-ing, ice-climbing, ATV’ing, snow-shoe-ing and water sports. Originally from NJ, I personally fell in love with Ouray County when first coming to this area in 1984 as a teenager. I was so blown away & enamored with the beauty and the unique rugged majestic mountains, that I vowed to myself one day I would own a home here. Dreams do come true.

Why the Owner Chose Ridgway, CO, USA:
We custom built & designed our home in 2006 & have enjoyed it immensely over the years. After traveling all over Colorado every year since moving to AZ in 1989, my family agreed and were convinced that what I had recognized at 19 years old still remained true. This special place is where we determined to build our 2nd home. Life circumstances has prevented our using it as much as we have in the past. So this brings the choice of sharing our wonderful home with others who can appreciate its specialness rather than to let this jewel sit idle.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
The most unique benefit of San Juan Paradise is that you are surrounded by the mountains on 2 acres which truly gives you the feeling of being away from it all. Yet at the same time there are all the amenities close by & the comfort of being home. Access on an extremely well maintained paved county road makes getting here a breeze. You will want to get outside as much as possible and enjoy everything this area has to offer. If you prefer not to travel outside of the neighborhood, Village activity abounds and beckons with friendliness. Steps away to walking paths, snow shoe trails, hiking, cross country ski trails and roadways are very bike friendly. To maximize your outdoor experience while at home, enjoy dual seating areas on both the East and West sides of the home. Great care & pride were taken in personally designing, decorating and hand selecting every piece that went into the home. From the antler cabinet pulls, to the whimsical lighting, to the custom designed furniture, the list goes on.... I hope you enjoy San Juan Paradise as much as we have & encourage you to leave your comments in the guest book.
