Come and experience luxury and raw beauty that you rarely find interwoven together in such a way. This is a home for entertaining and to enjoy with a huge kitchen, lots of counter space, big windows to take in the view. The entire second floor is the master bedroom, it is large and spacious. There is another bedroom downstairs with loads of windows. The apartment over the garage has the third bedroom. There is a cozy courtyard on the side of the house with a grill. The front patio takes in the entire mountain range. The house and guest house sit at the base of the escarpment of the Uncompahgre Plateau facing the Northern edge of the highest mountain range in the continental United States. The view is spectacular, the setting is private, cozy and comfortable. The gardens are lush and verdant; the mountains are rock and ice covered. The escarpment is dry and arid. All these varied climates come together here in Pleasant Valley at the foot of the Sneffles Range in the San Juan Mountains.
Easy driving distance to the Ouray or Orvis Hot Springs, Telluride, and shopping at the quaint town of Ridgway. Drive the Million Dollar Hwy on the way from Ouray to Silverton, or for something more exciting drive over Last Dollar Road to Telluride. Hike up the Blue Lakes trail, and if you are up for it continue on to climb Mt. Sneffles. From here it is a day's journey to Durango and/or Mesa Verde.
The view of the mountain range is out over the ranches of Ouray County, these vast ranches span thousands of acres. Below the stunning mountain backdrop, it is pastoral with cows and horses in the fields. It is a short 7 minute ride into town on county road 24 which is maintained year around. The access is easy and simple. It is a 45 minute ride to Telluride to the South or 45 minutes North to Montrose to the airport. Built to the highest standards of finish, the home gets its name from the many hummingbirds that frequent the gardens in the shade of the Aspen trees searching for nectar from the many flowers in bloom all summer long.
