This is a two year old home. It is only 9 blocks from the downtown park. It is located in a new private community and is 6 of 10 planned homes currently completed.There is private access to the Arkansas River just across the street for neighborhood use. Along the river, you will find a newly constructed path that will take you to a quiet fishing pond. Views of the mountains are beautiful from the path! You can fish in the river as well, or simply get in to cool off. You might catch rafters or kayakers' float by. I dropped the price a bit because there is construction in the neighborhood. Though previous construction noise has been minimal, we hope this will be incentive for you to stay with us regardless. We are licensed with the City of Salida for Short Term Rental Business : #0411.
We provide bikes for your use tooling around town. There is a Safeway six blocks from our house, a bank near the grocery store, and multiple shops. You can park you car in the garage and use bikes for all venues in town. Salida has more great restaurants than a town of it's small size can typically boast.
Our home has three upstairs bedrooms. The master suite has a queen bed, walk in closet, 4 foot shower, ceiling fan, and window facing the river. Bedroom two has a king bed and ceiling fan. Bedroom three has a queen bed and two twin lofts. There are no safety rails, please consider this when assigning bed to little ones. "Sleeps 9" means one person sleeps on the couch in living room. It is not a pull out sofa. Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a small bathroom with a shower only. There is a pop up crib available for little ones as well, however our home has NO bathtub. Our home does NOT have AC. There is a ceiling fan in the living room and we have box fans for each of the bedrooms for warmer summer months. Two of the bedrooms also have ceiling fans.
Downstairs is an open concept living area offering fully stocked kitchen, island/bar, dining, and living room, fireplace, pantry, laundry, and half bath. The kitchen has all new stainless appliances, microwave, and there are granite counter-tops throughout.
There is a front patio with porch swing, and a back patio in the small fenced backyard which has a wood fire pit for relaxing and star gazing at night. We recently bought a kiddy pool and shade for summer use. It is a great way to cool off! We have a detached 2 car garage you are welcome to use. It is not heated. It is half filled with townie bikes. Next to our neighborhood is the local baseball field you can use for tossing around the football or playing a family game of ultimate Frisbee!
