Car: Necessary

While there is plenty to do at 'Belmont Del Norte', the property is also surrounded by so many attractions, you will be hard-pressed to find time to discover them all. An hour east, discover the majesty of the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve and the nearby Zapata Falls. The town of South Fork is 15 miles west of Del Norte, and offers world-class fishing on the Rio Grande River. Another 15 miles west lies the historic mining town of Creede, home of great shops, restaurants and the world-famous Creede Reporatory Theatre. Eighteen miles south of South Fork, with Colorado's most snowfall, Wolf Creek Resort awaits downhill and cross-country skiers. After a long day of skiing, relax in the many hot springs in nearby Pagosa Springs.

The town of Del Norte is a short 5 mile drive. Guests can shop for groceries at Jack's Market, gifts and baked goods at the Mennonite-owned Columbine, spirits at Wild West Liquors, and old treasures at several antique shops. Great food can be had at Boogies, Country Inn, Three Barrel Brewery and the Windsor Hotel.

We love the town, and its proximity to other areas. Within a couple of hours, you can visit Durango (which has the Silverton Railroad), Pagosa Springs, Salida, Lake City, the historic town of San Luis (c.1851), the Wheeler Geologic Area (formed by caldera eruptions 25 million years ago) , Creede (with mining history and museums) and several small villages. Taos is 2.3 hours away and Santa Fe only a 3 hour drive.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We have been enjoying Southern Colorado for many years, so decided the time was right to 'bite the bullet' and buy our own place. After scouting homes all over the valley, in Creede, Lake City, and Southfork, we found our piece of heaven on a mountain south of Del Norte. Yes, the town is wonderful, and our property is beautiful, but it was the people of the town that ultimately swayed our decision. We feel this was the place we were destined to be. Originally from Stillwater, Oklahoma and Fort Worth, Texas, we are glad to call Southern Colorado our second home. We love getting to know new and interesting people, and look forward to welcoming you to 'Belmont Del Norte'!

Why the Owner Chose Del Norte, CO, USA:
After four days of looking at many traditional homes, Our realtor kept suggesting that we look at this "unique" property!" Being a straw bale, solar, contemporary home. . . . . we did not think it would be for us. Luckily, we had a very stubborn realtor and we finally said, "let's just look and make her happy"! What a great decision that was. Driving up to the property, we were sold! The home is unique, being adobe/stucco , with contemporary styling, reminding one of Northern New Mexico. Built by a master builder in 2008, and designed by his artist wife, it is truly a work of art. Yes, the home is beautiful, but the land is what we ultimately fell in love with. Majestic rock formation tower over you, as you hike or snow-shoe. While there is plenty of room to roam on our own property, we are surrounded by thousands of acres belonging to the BLM and National Forest Service. Hundreds of miles of trails for hiking, snow-shoeing, cross-country skiing or riding your ATM or snow-mobile are accessible from the property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Besides the beauty of the home and the land upon which it sits, 'Belmont del Norte' is the perfect house for entertaining. The fully equipped kitchen has a huge island for seating of least 6, and the dining room table has room for 12. With the large living room (with the fireplace and hearth) and the den (with the box-style heating stove), there is room to spare..
