Property description

Our beautiful home, with an open floor plan and decks facing the san juans, offers a peaceful, luxurious haven in the heart of the rockies--just a 5-minute walk to downtown. Restaurants, shopping, hiking, and winter sports at your door.

Close to town but facing the mountains and community park, this airy, spacious home combines all the luxuries of the new with the rustic beauty of the san juans. Ridgway's huge soccer field and tennis courts are steps away. Eco-friendly solar panels and led lights. But probably the best features are the huge windows with spectacular views of the mountains to the east and south!

You will have the entire upstairs living room, kitchen, two bedrooms and two full baths to yourself, plus the downstairs laundry room, entry, and garage. Only a small downstairs space (for family use) is off-limits.

Ridgway is an authentic western town surrounded by gorgeous wilderness scenery and opportunities. Get lost in the mountains or hang around and meet our eclectic mix of locals.

Solar ranch is on the south side of ridgway, facing the mountains and home to a park and recreational facilities--but walking distance to downtown. You get the best of both worlds--a quiet neighborhood adjacent to a charming, thriving community center. Grocery store, park, restaurants, and shopping just 5 short blocks away.
* famous orvis hot springs just 2 miles from town
* ouray 10 miles from ridgway
* telluride 45 minutes away

We'll meet you at check in, answer questions, and be close by if you need us. We also provide detailed written information about our area. We live just two doors away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We moved here from Austin, TX, in 2009, and quickly became involved in local activities. We love to hike, visit with neighbors, and contribute to the community. I'm a retired attorney, grew up in small town in the Texas panhandle, and Don was a home inspector and Air Force brat.

Why the Owner Chose Solar Ranch (Ridgway, CO, USA):
We moved to Ridgway because we love to be outdoors and there's no more beautiful place in the world to hike, enjoy neighbors, and hang out in town. We built this beautiful house, just two doors from our home, and have lovingly furnished and landscaped it. This is our retirement income, but we want it to also create great memories for all of our guests. We used to take our vacations in this area--beautiful times with our family in the most gorgeous scenery you can imagine. We want to give our guests just such priceless memories.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The huge living room, comfortably furnished, gives you an ideal space to spread out and gaze at the mountains in every direction. The well-stocked, sunny kitchen and dining room are part of the living space and let you prepare and enjoy your meals without ever leaving the family. Two decks, one off the living room and one off the master bedroom, offer spacious outdoor areas for meals or just relaxing and taking in the outdoors.
