Cuerna Verde Mountain Retreat is a beautiful 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom home on 240 acres (shared), situated just west of Rye, Colorado with the Wet Mountain Range, Greenhorn Mountain Wilderness and San Isabel National Forest neighboring to the west. Built as a summer home in 1915, this 2,879 square foot home boasts incredible views, and it is a true reprieve from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The detail of an era that has passed is evident in this home yet the current ownership has improved all aspects of the home, bringing all modern conveniences. Enjoy a spacious galley style kitchen with granite countertops, dual Viking ovens and range top, and a large Sub Zero refrigerator. Eat in the quaint breakfast nook while larger groups can mingle in the spacious dining room with soaring ceilings and windows that bring the outdoor mountain setting in. Gather around the original fireplace in the living room to read a book, or play a game and simply enjoy being cozy in front of the fire. There are two master suites in this home, one on the main level, the other on the second story. The artistic tile work in all bathrooms mimic colors found in Colorado nature. You will find ample storage throughout with built in bookcases, cedar lined closets and drawers, and a large walk in master closet. Two laundry areas, an artist's studio, screened in porch and large deck with fantastic views of mountains and plains and truly makes this a comfortable mountain retreat. Additional storage can be found in the detached three car garage. This home will not disappoint and is ready to continue its legacy of gathering. In 1913, the non-profit Cuerna Verde Association was formed with 16 members. The association purchased 200 acres with the intent that each member build a summer home and share in the enjoyment of the surrounding private acreage as well as the thousands of acres of San Isabel National Forest that adjoins to the west. The association amenities include the exclusive use and enjoyment of, now, 240 acres, a barn area for equestrian activities, an outdoor swimming pool, and a caretaker for grounds, road maintenance and snow removal. Water is provided by a community spring. The Greenhorn Mountain Trailhead, meandering along a creek and into the mountains is at the entrance to Cuerna Verde. Additionally, Lake San Isabel is just a few miles up the road. Southern Colorado is a special part of the state. Recreation and enjoyment of the outdoors is easy from this home. Access to larger metropolitan areas is an easy drive north via I-25 to Pueblo (30 minutes), or Colorado Springs (1 hour). Don't miss out on this very special property! ****Due to the type of ownership that will convey, this property can only be purchased with cash***
