About the property

Mountain Aerie--in Town

Brand new! Our beautiful new home, with open floor plan and decks facing the san juans, offers a peaceful, luxurious haven in the heart of the rockies--and walking distance 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 a new home with the rustic beauty of the san juans.

Ridgway's huge soccer field and tennis courts are steps away. Eco-friendly solar panels. But probably the best features are the huge windows with spectacular views of the mountains to the east and south! Grocery store, park, restaurants, and shopping are all within walking distance.

You will have the entire house to yourself--living/dining room, kitchen, and 3 bedrooms , plus two decks, the laundry room and entry, and 2-car garage. Includes a patio and fenced yard.

About Paula James

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.

Paula James purchased this house in 2015

Why Paula James chose Solar Ranch

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

The views are stunning! The home is luxurious, well laid out, very roomy. A quiet street but short walk to town and excellent restaurants, shopping. Hiking, biking, fishing, jeeping--all right here.
