If you are looking for the most private piece of paradise in Lake Vallecito, look no further! One and a half acres nestled in the middle of a gorgeous pine forest full of EVERgreens including incredible giants like the Ponderosa, Douglas & White Fir, Engelmann, CO Blue Spruce, & Bristlecone. Enhancing the 50 shades of green, owners have planted 3 colorful Honey Locust and 3 Maple trees, 3 Chokecherries, Elm, Purple Sandberry, several Quaking Aspen, Butterfly and Lantana bushes, over their 17 years in residence. Incredible views of nothing-but-nature await you from all directions; the deck, lawn, jacuzzi, or by the firepit, not to mention, out every window! The backdrop consists of the San Juan mountains including the Weminuche Range. Step peacefully back in time in this well-preserved retro 2-story mountain cabin with its intricate ornate wood trim and velvet wallpaper! The open floor plan allows everyone to be involved whether in the cozy living room with its stone wall fireplace, kitchen, lava/wagon wheel bar, & dining area all with new double-paned windows, kitchen door, and slider. All 4 bedrooms (2 up, 2 down) have ample closet space & big windows. There are 2 full bathrooms with windows, on each floor. Outside, there's a wooden carport, a 20 x 10 Zircon cargo/storage van, a wooden shed, and a 25' tall RV/camper port rated for heavy snow. Leave your curtains open for the most comfortable and unique stargazing experience ... from your own warm bed! The Rocky Mountain skies are crystal clear! This tree and wildlife sanctuary is a dream come true for birders, tree huggers and nature lovers, and with 3 ancient deer runs through the property, its a safe haven for all kinds of critters, including Golden Mantle Ground Squirrels & Least Chipmunks, who are sure to steal your heart. The lake is only a 12 minute walk away, and the Vallecito Creek is just below. There's nothing like falling asleep listening to Great Horned owls call to each other and waking up to bird symphonies. Living here is like being on an eternal vacation. Motivated Sellers!
