Property Details

This beautiful and rustic mountain home is a must see! This home sits on just under 9 acres in a peaceful and private Aspen grove. The property is located between town and the ski resort in a small subdivision with no covenants (see plat) - short term rentals allowed. This Paradise is within minutes to world class fishing, hiking, skiing, snowmobiling and one of the finest golf courses in the State! There are three bedrooms with a large bonus room & two baths in this home which has a renovated kitchen with "wood-look" ceramic tile, hickory cabinets, granite counter tops, a butcher block island, a new stainless refrigerator and stove (dishwasher is only 2-3 years old). The living room is bright and sunny with tiled floors, aspen T&G wood vaulted ceilings and large picture windows looking out toward Engineer Mtn, the surrounding mountains and valleys. There is also a great wood stove to help keep the house warm and cozy in the winter. There are two bedrooms downstairs, a large bonus room and a laundry room; the bonus room has a separate entrance to the front of the house. The master bedroom is on the upper level and features wonderful views to the north along with a master bath on the same level with double sinks and new sink and shower fixtures. From the master bedroom, you can access a custom built spiral staircase up to a bonus area/study/art room that has it's own private deck. Down the hall from the master, there is also a beautiful sun room that makes for a perfect getaway for yoga, an office area or a reading room. The owners have taken excellent care of this house as the pre-inspection shows with nothing to fix. New in 2017: kitchen with granite counters, appliances, furnace (2017), hot water heater (2018), new washer and dryer, new smoke/CO2 detectors, wood stove bricks, bath fixtures, custom stairway, deck stain. As a bonus, the large south facing decks are large enough to enjoy with all your friends and features a large hot tub. The property also has a beautiful garden area with various flowers and an herb garden in the front with pockets of high altitude landscaping scattered about and a fenced yard. There is also a workshop/storage building just off the driveway. The owners have lived in this house year round since it was built and are now only moving to be closer to grandchildren. Truly, this property is a must see!
