There is more than meets the eye at this very special country home! It is close to Cortez city limits (approx. 2.5mi) and has been well built and lovingly maintained. The home sits on 10+ acres with pastures, outbuildings, and ponds that are stocked with fish. The home was built with superior quality using kiln dry lumber, thick-walled concrete foundation and a partial stone exterior. A paved driveway serves as access to the home from Road M. All bedrooms and bathrooms are on the upper floor above the oversize heated garage. The bathrooms are equipped with Corian surfaces and updated fixtures. The custom mirrors give the space a bright and modern feel. The home has wool carpets that are still as soft and resilient as when they were installed. On the west side of the house, the ground floor has an open concept living room, dining room and kitchen all flowing together with the front door opening to a covered porch. Through the kitchen and laundry room the back door opens to a covered patio with space for outdoor dining. The east side of the house has a ground level two car garage with an extended roof that could serve as a carport. There is a large finished basement that has endless potential to be used as; a media room, another family room with plumbing for a wet bar, or this space could be separated into multiple bedrooms or a large office. The landscaping surrounding the house includes fruit, and shade trees. The gravel driveway north of the house takes you to the outbuildings and ponds. The steel barn is a one of a kind structure with seven stables, a tack room, overhead hay storage space, water, electric, and attached garage with dual roll up doors. Behind the barn are other outbuildings; a boxcar turned chicken coop, a stick frame built shed, and a metal storage building which could be used as a garage. It currently holds several seasons of wood for the fireplace. Pipe fencing, corral fencing and custom metal fencing are installed for animal runs and grazing options. Beyond the outbuildings are two ponds which are fed by a spring flowing year round. One of the two ponds has a aerator to keep the prod from freezing over in the winter. There is a pump house near the ponds which could be tied into the irrigation setup. The 12 shares of MVI alone are a valuable asset to this home, but in addition there is an extensive irrigation structure in place with headers, surface pipes, spigots and sprinklers.
