This country home is private but only 9 miles north of Steamboat in the scenic Elk River Valley. The home has sweeping views of several miles of the Elk River corridor, Sleeping Giant and the Flattops. The property is loaded with wildlife; deer, moose, bear and smaller game frequent the property. A resident elk herd can be spotted almost daily during the fall, winter, spring and early summer before traveling to the higher reaches on the nearby conservation ranches. Improvements consist of a 3,360 s.f. home with plenty of windows, a new roof, and Zirkel wireless high speed internet. The horse barn has 6 stalls and a tack room with water. A 40x60 building provides ample room for hay and equipment storage or indoor riding. Water is piped to a corral near the arena and to two pastures south of the home. The 3,750 s.f. shop has heated concrete floors, hot/cold water, 1/2 bath, upper platform storage, 220 electricity and three 14-ft. doors. An outdoor exterior wood boiler provides an excellent, inexpensive alternative heat source. The 10 GPM domestic well supplies the home, outbuildings and pastures. The property is quiet and private but is only 9 miles from Steamboat and 7 miles from Clark. Recreation is close: Christina fishing area and the Red Dirt trailhead are only 2 miles south; Mad Creek trailhead is 4 miles south; Greenville Mine and Sand Mountain USFS access points are 7 miles north. The views are really spectacular; nearly all of the land in the view area is conserved and will not be developed. The variety and prevalence of wildlife is unlike anything in the area: there is little to no pressure on the wildlife as they move from the 2M acre Routt National Forest through the large, conservation ranches to the lower elevations of the Elk River Valley. More acreage can be available and the Seller is a licensed Colorado agent. Google maps incorrectly shows the alternate access as a USFS triail. It is a private road with no public access.Status: Active Under Contract
