13921 County Rd. 326 Pagosa Springs CO Real Estate

TRANQUILITY AWAITS. TIRED OF THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE? EXTREMELY RARE opportunity to own your own UNIQUE MOUNTAIN A FRAME CHALET situated on 2.98 acres which fronts approx. 300 feet of the Upper Blanco Canyon River in the most sought after location in all of Archuleta County. The Blanco Basin is located in the southern San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado. It's a magical place surrounded by majestic mountains filled with lush evergreen forests and Quaking Aspen trees. The views are breathtaking changing with the seasons, from verdant green in the summer to golden patched mountains in the fall turning snowy white in the winter. The Rio Blanco that runs through the Blanco basin is fed by springs and small streams originating high in the mountains that slowly wind to the river. The Rio Blanco, is home to several species of trout including Rainbows, Cutbows, Cutthroat and Brookies. Most anglers are fly fishers and practice catch and release, keeping the fish population stable. The river runs through private land and permission to fish the waters must be obtained from the land owners. Immediately north of and adjacent to, the Majestic Mountain properties, is federally owned land including USFS land and a portion of the San Juan Wilderness area. Fishing and hunting are permitted to all who have access to those areas. Numerous trails lead into the federal lands. It is not unusual for hikers to venture far into the basin to camp for a few days or to hike over the mountains and descend into the Pagosa Springs area. Other hiking and horseback touring areas go east of the Blanco crossing high country including the continental divide. Treks in that direction will end in New Mexico in the area near Platoro Lake and the Conejos River. Wild life in the San Juans, includes deer, elk, mountain sheep, bears, mountain lions, coyotes, bob cats, marmots, weasels, snowshoe hares, beaver and many other animal and bird species. The area is truly a nature lover's paradise. The cabin is located at an elevation of 8200'. Ringed with beauty and immersed in tranquility this place is like no other. Slightly west of the cabin the owners have built a huge fully insulated 1500 sq.ft.+/- garage, one side of the garage has large doors that will accommodate most RVs or trailers. Large doors are located on each end of that side of the garage allowing pull through access. The other door is large enough for most vehicles. At the far end of the non RV side of the garage is a small enclosed office space. There is also a space to park an RV or trailer with an electrical hookup nearby. Water is also available for the RV guest. The approximate heated space in the cabin is 1188 sq.ft. The cabin has three levels. On the main floor level are located the kitchen, dining area, lounging area, laundry room and full bathroom. The main floor can also be used as a sleeping area with the addition of hide a bed furniture. The second level is a sleeping area and is comprised of two open rooms. The third story has only been used for storage. To incorporate it into a living area would require building better access to the loft area.

Modifications and additions would have to be made to make it habitable in the winter. The entire main flooring was replaced when the new floor joists were installed.
