Description

Bear Springs Ranch is a 55.3-acre property located at the base of Silver Mountain, near the scenic Cuchara Valley and the quaint mountain town of La Veta. Offering views of the Spanish Peaks and the unique, wall-like rock formations of the Great Dikes, the property boasts two custom 3-bedroom homes, versatile outbuildings, abundant wildlife, and private access to thousands of acres of BLM ground. The 4,332sf lodge-style log home features a Brazilian hardwood wraparound deck with awe-inspiring views of the surrounding mountains, rock formations and visiting wildlife (be sure to view the game/wildlife images in this listings photo gallery). Inside, the home has a custom kitchen with granite countertops and European-style alder cabinets; beautiful oak and custom tile floors; three bathrooms; custom-tiled showers; a jetted and heated Jacuzzi tub; a heated garage; and an enclosed porch wired and plumbed for a hot tub. Each of the three bedrooms leads outdoors to a private deck. A large loft space overlooks the living room, and makes for an ideal office or additional living area. A downstairs family room is wired for an overhead projection system, and offers ample space for an office or home gym. A wood fireplace complements an eight-zone in-floor radiant heating system. In addition to abundant storage space throughout the home, theres a hidden gun vault large enough for 20 or more long guns, many handguns, and ammunition; this space could easily double as a wine cellar. A ground-floor patio provides additional outdoor entertaining space. And a wraparound red-rock driveway offers convenience and ample parking. The 2,158sf ranch-style guest home has a beautifully landscaped yard and vast front deck, offering room for comfortable outdoor entertaining. The homes living space has an open design, with a custom kitchen leading directly to a dining area and sizable living room, and a full wall of windows perfectly framing scenic views of the surrounding mountains and rock formations. In addition, the home has a large, enclosed sunroom; a large master bedroom with a walk-in closet; two bathrooms; a jetted tub; custom tile floors; an in-floor radiant heating system; and a two-car garage with dedicated workshop space and workbenches. This property has been thoughtfully planned and designed for self-sufficiency. Solar power complements on-grid electricity. An automatic 14kw propane-fueled backup generator ensures the main lodge-style home is unaffected by any potential power outages. Cutting-edge microwave internet service offers a reliable high-speed online connection. In addition to its domestic well (for household use, watering livestock, and limited irrigation), the property has one 1,200-gallon and two 2,000-gallon underground cisterns for additional water security. The guest house shares the propertys domestic well, and has its own 500-gallon cistern, located inside the garage for easy access and maintenance. Outbuildings include a storage shed, a wood shed, and a versatile shop that, with the addition of stall mats, could easily be transformed into a horse barn. The property also has a productive garden space and a dog run. The ranch is moderately treed, with a variety of pines and pinons, and backs to one of the walls forming the Great Dikes. On a near-daily basis, the property is visited by trophy elk, mule deer and bighorn sheep, as well as wild turkey and other game and wildlife. And, ownership of this property comes with usage rights to a private BLM entry point (not available for use by the general public) located less than a mile away, offering access to thousands of acres of public land, limitless outdoor recreation, and opportunities to hunt some of Colorados most coveted big game. (This ranch is located in Colorado hunting unit 85.) World-class skiing is within easy reach: Taos Ski Valley and Monarch Mountain are each just two and half hours away. There are two golf courses just 40 minutes away. And, the Colorado Springs airport, with non-stop service to major cities throughout North America, is approximately 90 minutes north. Located in one of Colorados relatively undiscovered regions, Bear Springs Ranch offers unspoiled scenery, little traffic, and a landscape truly unlike any other. This quintessential Colorado mountain home would make an ideal family retreat or headquarters for hunting, fishing and skiing excursions, and an outstanding option for an outdoor-oriented buyer or group of buyers.
