Attention birders and wildlife watchers- this house is not just a home- its a lifestyle. Drive down a dead-end road to this modern ranch style home located on 5.5 acres with a private canyon bordering a forested and undeveloped 200 acre Bureau of Reclamation tract. Due to the abundant water in the canyon migratory birds, heron, deer, foxes, and birds of prey all utilize this canyon. The front of property facing the road is fully fenced with 3 separate gated entrances. There is a large animal pen in front with an oversized door that is perfect for pets or livestock. Fruit trees include mature apple trees, dwarf peach tree, apricot & plum trees along with Pinyon and Juniper forest. An established raised bed tea & butterfly garden fully fenced in the back yard offers lots of opportunities for viewing hummingbirds and butterflies. A large fully amended raised bed vegetable garden is located on the SE of home and offers master gardening at its finest! The home boasts an oversized garage that could be an excellent workshop or car storage! Attached to garage is a 2 room, 315 square foot apartment with full bathroom, hot water tank and private entrance.

The house has forced air heating and central air conditioning along with red oak flooring and tile throughout. Attached to the living area is a roomy dining room with huge windows that overlook the private canyon. The kitchen features an open concept with lots of cupboards and counter space, including a breakfast bar perfect for entertaining.
