Dreaming of a mountain home? Solitude? End of the road privacy? Unparalleled access to public land? Live water? A large home and guest house to gather with family and friends? Never before on the market, this spacious lodge-style retreat set on 40 acres at the base of a dramatic canyon offers everything you have been looking for and more. Hike along Birch Creek through the aspens and evergreens. Watch wildlife from the large wraparound deck. Invite your friends over and race your snowmobiles in the field. Bring your horses, bring your toys! Access national forest privately from the back of the property and adventure into nearly infinite acreage. With no CCRs and total seclusion bordering public land on three sides, this is a dream property for the recreational and nature enthusiast. The spacious residence is three stories and offers distinct living and gathering areas on each floor -- perfect for a large family, corporate retreat or gathering spot with friends.
The main level boasts a two-story living room as well as a dining area and a sitting area off the kitchen. A large master suite offers the ease of first floor living as well as privacy and plenty of room to retreat. The main level also has an office which can be used as an additional bedroom.
Upstairs, the home has a large family room, huge en-suite bunk room, two bedrooms with attached bathrooms and a utility room. On the lower level, the home has two additional bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as more gathering space with a large family room and an exercise/playroom. There is also a cute playroom under the stairs as well as a large storage closet and laundry room. The lower level has added function for a mountain lifestyle with a large mud room accessible to the outside and adjoining the oversized garage that can house 3 cars (or a bunch of your toys!)
Across the creek, down the driveway, you will find the guest house and additional garage space. The guest house offers an open layout but has the space to create two-bedroom living quarters. The guest house's attached garage is oversized. Further down the driveway, toward the entrance gate, you will find a third garage which functions more as a shop and equipment storage.
The land is a perfect mix of flat and mountainous terrain covered in aspens and evergreens while also offering some open field spaces. Birch Creek runs through the property, from the national forest, entering on the eastern boundary, running alongside the home and to the lower western boundary. There is a small bridge next to the house to cross the creek as well as a main crossing below with culverts where the driveway crosses.
The land is bordered on national forest on one side and state land on two sides. Near the forest gate there is an extremely large boulder which is a stunning visual feature but could also be a fun challenge for a rock climbing enthusiast. The back forest gate opens into the canyon which is truly breathtaking and has dramatically steep walls. A true gem, almost like hiking right into pristine national park land! The current owners created a track around the land for four-wheelers or other ATVs which also makes an excellent walking or jogging path.
Between the stunning and completely unique land and the spacious home and ancillary buildings, this offering is a once in a lifetime opportunity you do not want to miss!
