Land is standout feature of Orchard Mesa parcel
In a growing area like the Grand Valley, buyers often have to go farther and farther out to find peace, privacy and seclusion. Our unique property at 395 33 1/2 Road on East Orchard Mesa offers all three, and it’s just a short drive to major arterials that connect to every other part of the valley.
The home itself was built in 1986, and looks like it was intended to be a passive solar home. At this point, it needs a little TLC and work to really make it shine, but the sunroom off the kitchen will make a great spot for brightening up dreary winter days.
The truly unique aspect with this property is the land itself. The house sits on nine acres overlooking the Colorado River. Most of the neighboring homes, which can’t be seen due to trees and rolling hills, are at least a half mile away in the Bonnie Brook subdivision.
The property, which is long and somewhat narrow, is at the end of a private, gated driveway, at the west edge of the East Orchard Mesa area devoted to orchards and vineyards. The house, which was built more for comfort than a dramatic setting on the edge of a cliff, sits nestled in a little draw. It’s a short walk to the bluff, however, where the views are phenomenal in every direction. It’s not hard to imagine the wildlife and birds that also call the property home.
The property has a private spring which supplies irrigation water and the front yard has functioning underground sprinklers. Previous owners preferred to let the trees and natural vegetation grow, but the parcel directly to the east is a vineyard, so the land is suitable for grapes or other crops.
There are a couple of storage sheds on the property as well as plenty of room for RV parking, tractors, four-wheelers or snowplows.
With no covenants, homeowners are welcome to have poultry, horses or even a dog kennel. There’s plenty of room to run.
