695 Ute Drive Pagosa Springs CO Real Estate
If you are looking for a special, unique and one-of-a-kind horse property and a place that can pay for itself: Red Horse Farm is it! Red Horse Farm is located in a quiet, peaceful valley right below Broken Off Mountain. The drive to City Market is a short 15 minutes. Red Horse Farm sits on a corner property that borders the green belt and covers 2.24 acres. National Forrest and BLM is close by. You can trail ride right off the property! The property features a large circle driveway. There is plenty of parking space, 2 RV hookups with septic access, one electric RV hookup. Winter maintenance is excellent since the Metro District Shop is right down the road. Just up the road is a large neighborhood pavilion that features a volley ball court and a frisbee golf course as part of the 110 acres Green Belt that is open for use to hike and trail ride. The property is set up as a Natural Horse Habitat with 2 Horse Habitat Shelters and about a quarter mile of trail system for the horses. The pastures multitask as a 20x60 meter riding arena and a 120x200 feet playground. There is also a 80x80' riding arena with good footing and drainage for those rainy monsoon days. The footing was just installed last year. All fencing is horse safe with electric tape/electrobraid. There is also a tie/wash rack. The main area of the house features a country kitchen with a cool sliding barn door, a front and back mudroom (the back mudroom has a shower, toilet, sink and washer/dryer hookup so nobody has to tromp thru the house with muddy boots!) The great room boasts 25 foot ceilings and a large wood stove that heats the majority of the house. If you love to entertain... this is it: The 15 ft long table makes having guests a breeze! Upstairs is a loft area with book shelves, two bedrooms (one with the absolutely coolest built in loft bunk bed!) and a very unique 3/4 bathroom. The sliding glass door opens to the upper deck which overlooks our beautiful valley, the fire pit and garden. The studio has a private entrance, it's own bathroom and additional kitchen/living area. The studio bedroom can be access from my main house as well. Red Horse Farm has always enabled me to pay my mortgage by renting out the studio or offering long term rooms to Parelli students. Since the house is a former barn, most of the interior walls are not load bearing and it would be easy to choose a different layout, including accessing the two upstairs bedrooms from the studio. Over the last 5 years I have landscaped the yard (which is adjacent to the Natural Horse Habitat and allows so wonderfully to be a part of the horses life): Gravel walk ways, a sunken stone fire pit, rock lined beds, bushes, perennials and annual flowers. The wild sunflowers that come back every year make the back porch a heaven for humming birds and all kinds of finches. The blue birds LOVE my yard and leave feathers for me all the time! :-) The attached garage will house my son's VW Beetle. I've turned it into a wood working shop. The property has a 13gpm well and a 1800 gallon cistern (numbers were given to me by the previous owner) with livestock and outside watering permit (up to one acre). You can keep your backyard green, even in the dryer months. No water hauling here! And this is not all! In 2014 Red Horse Farm received a completely new, slate grey metal roof, along with rain & ice shield, new plywood and additional new roof insulation. The exterior walls were also upgraded with more insulation. In addition, the plumbing was upgraded in 2011. The plumbing was designed to be easily winterized. Now is YOUR time to buy Pagosa Springs' one of a kind Property that can pay for itself!
