Coldwell Banker Heritage House

SANCTUARY (sangk-choo-er-e) as described in Webster's Dictionary is a Sacred place. This Residential Wildlife Preserve is just that. The setting is one of what dreams are made of with over 5 ponds, live water, lush pastures and incredible views. The modest 3 bed 2 bath home has been lovingly maintained and is situated perfectly on the property to take in all the views and peacefully overlook the pristine grounds and mature landscaping. Many varieties of flowering shrubs,mature trees, perennial gardens and fruit trees dot the grounds while the Mountain Peaks and Colorado Blue Sky backdrop shimmers off of any one of the many ponds. Several ponds have different varieties of fish and are aerated by a large windmill that supplies oxygen. The property comes with 15 shares of MVI along with 1.41 CFS adjudicated irrigation water that keeps everything lush and green. The home has views from almost every window and is nicely heated by a forced air furnace or the beautiful fireplace insert when it's chilly and in the summer, shade from the canopy of trees with a nice mountain breeze do the cooling. The historic barn was purchased and moved to it's permanent home sometime in the 1970's and is great shape providing protection from the elements for livestock and equipment. Many varieties of bushes, grasses and trees were planted to provide food for more than 60 acre bird preserve that contain many platforms and birdhouses in the nesting rookery for the Blue Heron and hundreds of other species that call this paradise home. Down along the creek a covered camping platform was constructed evenings can be spent sleeping under the stars and listening to the water without having to be bothered by annoying ground insects. There is also a beautifully situated observation platform in place for birding when the migratory seasons arrive. The property is home to many other types of wildlife as well and can support cattle, horses or other species of farming or recreational livestock. A foundation exists from a previous homestead that is in great shape that would make an excellent detached garage or construct a second home for income or guest. So much potential, So much Beauty, call today and come see what paradise is supposed to look like.
