Looking for privacy and seclusion? Stone House Ranch at Eleven Mile is a 156-acre private retreat ideal for the avid outdoorsman, gentleman rancher or as the favorite family gathering spot. The property is located within a five-minute drive to Eleven Mile Reservoir, arguably one of the best trout fisheries in the state. Both Eleven Mile and Spinney Mountain Reservoirs (located another 10-15 minute drive) provide numerous other recreational opportunities (boating, kayaking, hiking, etc.). One of the best fishing streams in the Western United States extends between Eleven Mile and Spinney Mountain Reservoirs and is aptly named the "Dream Stream". The southwest corner of the Stone House Ranch parcel is directly abutted by BLM land that extends south and is contiguous with over 20,000-acres of Forest Service Lands. These areas encircle Thirtynine Mile Mountain and are excellent deer and elk habitat as evidenced by the wildlife traffic along the southern site boundary.The 1,494 square foot ranch style home/cabin underwent an extensive interior and exterior renovation in 2012 and shows pride of ownership. The floor plan consists of a three-bedroom, three (full) bathroom design with a well-appointed kitchen and shared dining/living area. Kitchens and bathrooms feature granite or marble countertops with wood and tile throughout. Other custom finishes include a mudroom at the main entrance, Kraftmaid Cabinets, upgraded windows, bath fixtures and lighting, stainless steel appliances, including a Fridgidaire Professional gas range, vaulted ceilings and kitchen pantry. The rocks utilized on the exterior of the home and detached garage were gathered on the ranch, completing the insulating concrete form (ICF) construction. Heat and electricity are fully-integrated off-grid sources (solar panels, redundant generator and propane). The property also contains a 1,040 square foot combination shop/garage that includes a tandem bay allowing for RV/trailer or boat storage. The upper level of the garage contains a finished storage room (square footage not included). A small room off-of the garage houses the solar related equipment and generator.The site contains gated access off of Black Mountain Road/CR 116 and is perimeter fenced. In addition to the BLM and Forest Service lands further to the south, a large ranch borders the southern and eastern property lines. The parcel is afforded good southern exposure with spectacular views provided in all directions: Pikes Peak, Eleven Mile Reservoir, South Park, Thirty-Nine Mile and Black Mountain and the Collegiate Peaks. The most prominent view is afforded from the outdoor patio where both Eleven Mile Reservoir and Pikes Peak provide the perfect backdrop. Properties offering this many surrounding recreational opportunities and views, combined with the right combination of improvements, don't come along often.
