Property Description

This little one acre slice of heaven is more than initially meets the eye. The location is one of the best in Salida, conveniently located a short bike ride from downtown (there’s a paved bike trail on CR 120 and a bike lane on CR 145) yet situated in a quiet rural setting surrounded by lush green pastures and backed by sweeping views of the entire Sawatch Range. The 3 Bedroom 2 Bath modular home has been updated with newer electric, new stucco, new windows, and a tasteful and cozy interior with big windows to take in the 360 degree views. Spacious bedrooms and a sunny bonus room make this compact home feel larger than it is. An enclosed concrete patio has plenty of room for multiple seating and dining areas, raised beds for vegetables and flowers, and an elevated pad that would be a perfect spot for a hot tub. To the east are unobstructed views of the Arkansas Hills and S Mountain. The property is fully fenced with 3 separate pasture and paddock areas there are no covenants here, so bring your goats, donkeys or llamas! Behind the 2 car garage and workshop is a small attached barn, so you can check on your animals during a winter storm without going outside. In the barnyard you will also find a loafing shed, a fenced heirloom apple orchard and chicken coop, and a 16×20′ storage barn with double doors, built in shelving and a concrete floor. There’s plenty of space out back to park an RV, trailers, and more (did we mention no covenants?). In front of the home is a pasture perfect for grazing your animals, and two large gates so you can fully enclose it while you are home. The historic use well permit allows you to keep the pasture irrigated all season long without restrictions. A 24-foot long covered front porch with recessed lighting is THE perfect spot to enjoy an evening beverage and watch the sunset. Come and see why this charming property is truly a unicorn in disguise; you’ll never want to leave! Seller is a licensed broker in the state of Colorado.
