Price: $550,000
City: Bayfield
Type: Stick Built
This wonderful hand hewn white oak log home in the woods is just waiting for new owners. The home sits at the highest point of the property offering great views of the snowcapped La Plata Mountains. It would be great for a family and even has a guest quarters/mother in law apartment on the lowest level. Keep your camera nearby as you will see turkey, elk and bear to name a few of the neighbors! Up on top is a large barn or RV storage shed, without water or electricity, but easy access from Highview Road. The subdivision, Homestead Ranches is a “tight-knit residential community" where, the parcels range in size from 10-35 acres, so there’s plenty of privacy but the neighbors all watch out for each other. This home is on a well with a new pump and the seller installed an 1800 gallon cistern for both back-up storage and fire suppression; this cistern also has a new pump installed for additional peace of mind. The home has amazing decks on 3 sides and views of the La Platas. This 1993 log beauty is extremely well built and has a nice flowing floorplan. The master bed and bath are located on the upper level and there is an open loft that is currently being used as an office, but could also make a great reading area. The main level has a large kitchen, with an under counter wine fridge and wet bar, an open living area complete with woodburning catalytic stove that the seller uses as the primary heat source and a open dining room. The three large redwood decks on this level are accessed from French doors or the front door in the great room. Also on this floor is an office/den and a 3/4 bath. As you descend to the lower level you will find a bedroom, sitting room (which could also be a bedroom), and a full bath. The basement has a private entrance from a large redwood deck. The two-car garage is accessed from this level as well. Go down one more level and you will find the guest apartment, with high quality washer and dryer, and ¾ bath which can also be accessed externally from it’s own deck. This home offers good value for it’s size, quality and acreage. While many subdivision roads in this County are maintained by a homeowners association, this property is bordered by a County maintained road, which saves you money. It also borders greenbelt on the eastern side. The home is equipped with a backup auxiliary power system in the event of a power outage. Must see to appreciate! Home is all electric and wood, LPEA Avg. $230, High $465, Low $65
