Welcome to Glad Dog Ranch – nestled against the picturesque Missionary Ridge, this exceptional home in the acclaimed Animas Valley will be treasured by the next homeowner. A wrought iron gate opens onto the black topped drive leading to this well cared for cedar sided home set on nine cross-fenced acres. The large open living room presents a floor-to-ceiling panorama of red cliffs and the Hermosa backcountry. The stone gas fireplace warms cool winter days and nights. Step up to the spacious dining area with French doors that frame the eastern red cliffs and forested land. The efficient kitchen with a granite island and a small desk area also reveals incredible views. The main floor has two guest bedrooms and a full bath, powder room, and a large office area plus a TV viewing area. Two sets of stairs lead to the Master suite with more dramatic views from the glass enclosed shower and Jacuzzi tub. A library area, as well as another office/hobby room and a very large bonus room, all showcase peaks and valleys, oaks and aspens, evergreens, eagles and hawks. The upstairs deck overlooks a two-stall horse barn and enclosed tack room, a round pen with sand footing, and a large storage building. Living close to nature will be easy and rewarding when surrounded by such beauty.
