409 acres Cortez, CO

Montezuma County Tom Morse Legacy Properties West Sotheby's International Realty

Type: Acreage w/House 3 Beds | 2 Baths | 3093 SqFt

409 acres of secluded canyon with a creek running through it is a rare find! Envision this private domain; a beautiful valley interspersed with meadows and majestic cottonwood trees, flanked by canyon walls with no other homes in sight. This is Trail Creek Ranch! The incredible beauty and seclusion of this property must be experienced firsthand to be understood. Listen to the quiet the only sounds you hear will be birds and the rustle of the breeze in the trees. Imagine never hearing a road or unruly neighbors, consider not seeing any lights at night - just the moon, planets and stars. So spectacular! The peaceful solitude will calm your soul and the natural beauty delight your senses. Trail Canyon itself has a long history in the area and encompasses fifteen hundred plus acres of meandering creek, meadows and rock formations. Trail Creek Ranch has water rights to keep the valley green and sustain agriculture or stock. With only two other property owners in the entire canyon, miles away and having no access through the ranch, there is total privacy. The property is adjacent to BLM and two other conservation easements. The surprising bonus is you are only 20 minutes to town, not an hour or two. Mirroring the uniqueness of the location and land is the home that has been built there. Thoughtfully and professionally designed this attractive super-custom rammed earth, off-grid, home is crafted to meld into the natural environment and packed with creative and efficient details. The main house is 2570 square foot and absolutely luxurious to live in with lots of light, contemporary flair and all the comforts of living in town. The home is heated with a solar hot water system plus a woodstove for cozy ambiance. With satellite phone and internet service... you are still 'well connected' when you want to be. The neat 523 sf studio/shop next to the house, a detached carport and a large equipment building complete the ranch compound. Also on the property is the historic, restored, Trail Canyon (1921) stone homestead and corrals with original stoves and features. This glimpse of another era shows that self-reliance is no stranger to this canyon. State-of-the-art systems provide the self-sufficiency to live in this amazing environment. The solar hot water system is provided by a large bank of panels, and backed up with propane if needed, for toasty in-floor heat. Electricity is also solar powered by with Kyocera PV panels and battery storage with a propane generator for back-up. The color-inlaid, rammed earth walls are 24 thick to maximize heat retention and to keep cool in the summer. Unique local and recycled materials are used throughout the structures with unbelievable attention to detail. The deep well is pumped by separate solar panel system into a 2000 gal holding tank for ready use. All this innovative technology supports living in comfort and total privacy. Then just turn off the lights at night and enjoy the dark skies and quiet! You will think you were at an exotic retreat, far from it all.

37.1 acres Cortez, CO

Montezuma County Bob Bernhart Vanguard Realty

Type: Acreage w/House 3 Beds | 2 Baths | 2142 SqFt

The Setting: This is a fabulous, self-sustaining horse property in southwest Colorado just two miles south of the town of Cortez. There are views of the Abajo Mountains in southeast Utah, the Chuska and Carrizo Mountains in northeast Arizona, west to the Sleeping Ute Mountain, northeast to the San Juan Mountains near Telluride, east to the La Plata Mountains and, around two miles to the south, the north escarpment of Mesa Verde National Park. At night you can see the city lights of Cortez. The views are spectacular. The property is located on a quiet dead end county road and most all of the properties on the road are agricultural. Deer can occasionally be seen crossing the property and eagles and hawks cruise the sky. There are numerous archaeological sites on the property. Several manos and metates will be left for you as tokens from the ancestors. The Home: The home, which was built in 2008, is located conveniently distant from the county road and is situated so as to take maximum advantage of the wonderful views noted above. For maximum livability, the home has a single level with a total of 2,142 square feet of living space. There are: two ample bedrooms; one full bath; plus a master suite with five piece bath that includes a large corner tub and a glass-enclosed shower; a large great room/dining room combination; a kitchen with peninsula workspace and a breakfast nook (with mountain view); a laundry room with space for a washer, dryer and upright freezer; and a terrific library/den with fireplace and wood floor. To enjoy the morning sun and eastern views there is a 960 square foot (80 by 12) deck. To enjoy the sunsets and western views there is a 112 square foot (7 by 16) porch. To bring the outdoors indoors there are three sets of sliding glass doors on the east side of the house: a set in the master bedroom, a set in the library/den and a double set in the great room. Other distinctive features of the home are: - The exterior of the home is interlocking vinyl siding. This feature, along with the vinyl windows, provides for very low maintenance and allows for the home to be washed down annually instead of painted. - Heat is hot water baseboard. The high efficiency boiler is fired by propane which also provides hot water. - House water is public and sewer is septic. There are also twelve shares of Montezuma Valley Irrigation Company water (personal property) that are used to irrigate the hay field. - The roof is contractor grade architectural composition shingle. - There are three ceiling fans: one in the library/den, one in the master bedroom and one in the great room. The house has a whole house attic fan. All interior doors are louvered which means that bedroom doors can be closed for privacy while being cooled by opening the window after turning on the attic fan. The house is wired for an evaporative cooler but it has not been installed. In the years we have lived in the home we have relied on the attic fan and never really needed to have the swamp cooler installed. There are vinyl sunscreens on the east & west windows that provide insulation in the winter and aid cooling in summer. - All doors have nickel plated latch handles as opposed to door knobs. - Toilets in both bathrooms are water efficient Toto Toilets. These toilets allow for two levels of water to be used for waste evacuation. - All faucets are high end Delta faucets. - All kitchen appliances are stainless steel Kenmore Elite and include: gas cooktop, microwave, side-by-side refrigerator with drawer freezer, dishwasher and a built-in convection/bake wall oven. There is also an under-cabinet AM/FM radio and CD player. The pedestal-style washer and dryer are by LG. - Cabinets in the kitchen, baths, hall and dining room are all Kraft Maid cherry with nickel pulls. All surfaces for these cabinets are granite. Cabinets in the laundry are also Kraft Maid but are white with oak trim. - Skylight in library/den with opening window. - Oversized two car garage with workbench. - Flooring is mostly ceramic tile and wood with carpet in one guest bedroom. The Ranch Property: The total acreage of the property is 37.1 acres. Of that, twenty acres is a producing hay field. Production has been 4.02 and 4.13 tons per acre in 2012 and 2013, respectively, or over 2,500 each of 65# hay bales. This should be sufficient to board several horses and have some bales available for sale. The pole barn is 48 by 96 and will easily accommodate all of the hay produced plus provide storage for the tractor and implements. Included in the barn is a 16 by 24 tack room with a loft which is currently used for storage. There are about five acres of horse pasture with electric fence and more pasture could be carved out of the remaining acres. On the west side of the barn is a 64'by 80'corral. There is also a 75 by 100 stock pond. The twenty acre hay field is irrigated via a 640 side roll irrigation system, with mover, which distributes the twelve shares of agricultural water that are available to the property. Both of these items are personal property for appraisal purposes. To help maintain the property, a 2008 Kubota L4240HSTC tractor, with cab, is also available (personal property). The tractor has just 605 total hours on it. Implements included with the tractor are: end loader, articulated rear blade, 50 gallon sprayer, box scraper, 8 front-mounted hydraulic augur, 7 spike harrow and a brush hog mower. Price and Financing: The asking price for the home, barn, producing hay field, and the pasture acres is $499,900. If the buyer is a qualified veteran, the current 3.25%, 30 year mortgage is assumable ($389,000 current balance). The personal property items (wheel-line irrigation, irrigation water and tractor) are available on separate bill of sale. Terms might be available for purchase of the personal property items. Contact Listing Agent for individual prices. No extra cost for the views and quiet! As required by the Colorado Real Estate Commission, Listing Agent discloses that he is also an owner of the property. Listing Agent will co-op on commission with any licensed real estate agent. Any offers should be presented on approved Colorado Contract to Buy and Sell Real Estate. If buyer is from outside Colorado, Listing Agent is willing to facilitate the deal as a Transaction Broker.
