This stunning mountain escape is just minutes from downtown Pagosa Springs on paved roads, surrounded by Pine and Aspen trees with incredible mountain serenity and privacy. This property boasts eye-catching architectural features, breathtaking views, and the opportunity for exploration on 8 acres with trails. The home is situated to capture the San Juan Mountains' views beautifully. You can genuinely feel surrounded by nature with abundant natural light and striking vistas from nearly every window. In addition, the recently renovated and expanded back deck provides unbeatable outdoor space to take in the sights, listen to the wildlife, and enjoy the year-round Colorado sunshine. Exposed beams alternate throughout the home with recessed lighting overhead and pine flooring—an example of how the home's design blends modern style with rustic mountain charm. The kitchen is thoughtfully laid out to allow for your choice of large celebrations or intimate dinners. A generous granite top island provides additional prep space, in addition to the plentiful custom cabinets and drawers. The eye-catching 1918 Glenwood Gold Medal oven is the main focal point in the kitchen, adding a little vintage mountain flair to the space. The living room with an expanded ceiling and free standing gas fireplace is open to the kitchen and dining area, creating warmth and ambiance every season. French doors open to the expansive back deck, which could arguably be the best feature of this property. The primary bedroom is upstairs with vaulted ceilings and access to a private balcony— space is abundant, including the walk-in closet. The luxury bath includes a large jetted tub, a separate tiled shower (that includes a wet sauna), and a large sitting bench. Rejuvenate with enchanting views from each window. Outside, lovely rose flagstone walkways and gamble oak surround the home. An excellent variety of wildlife on the property (red fox, lynx, hummingbirds, and deer) can be spotted throughout the year. In addition to the freshly painted main home, the property includes a recently painted and finished 1,070 square-foot guest home with rustic mountain style and wood burning fireplace. A unique feature of this property is the original airplane hanger that can be used as another garage, storage, workshop, or space to house all recreational toys (and/or that can be built into another guest house or living area). Included in the oversized attached 2-car garage is a dog washing station and plenty of room for storage. The property also boasts a Geodesic Growing Dome, perfect for growing your own vegetables and herbs. Two parcels are included in the purchase price, allowing the future owner an excellent opportunity to preserve the view and add additional outbuildings, a horse set up, or a second home. In addition, this rare location has reasonable covenants and no monthly HOA dues. Far from any big cities, Pagosa Springs is the Ute Indian word for 'healing waters'. This town is well known for its refreshing and rejuvenating natural, hot mineral springs and riverside hot pools; it also has fine restaurants and a hospital. Two city parks straddle the San Juan River, encompassing a river walk and picnic areas. The area is also known for its world-class fishing rivers.
