Although the house was designed with propane heat in mind, the current owners installed this wood burning furnace, which can heat the entire house. The property has plenty of fuel.

The kitchen has both a stand-alone freezer and a refrigerator, (with fronts that match that kitchen cabinetry) since running to the grocery store a couple of times per week isn’t really a good option for homeowners of this unique property in Collbran.

Those who’d like to be a remote location, away from it all may find a perfect fit with our unique property on 60 3/4 Road in Collbran. It sits at the end of a private road and borders national forest land in some places.

Real Estate Weekly has featured several unique properties over the last few weeks, and as we wind up our unique properties series, we’re featuring one of the more remote, yet comfortable homes in the series.

The property at 10392 60 3/4 Road in Collbran includes 35 acres at the end of a lonely county road, which adjoins national forest land. At 8,000 feet, there’s not much growing other than trees, but there are a lot of trees, as well as several fenced pastures for horses, streams, a pond and several outbuildings.

The 4,350-square foot house is uniquely rustic and modern, built with two-foot round logs brought in from British Columbia, tongue-in-groove walls and floors and plenty of room for everyone in the home’s five bedrooms. The home has an upstairs area where two of the bedrooms and one bath are located, as well as a walk-out basement, where there are two more bedrooms, a bath and a huge family/recreation room. The prize of the family room is a custom bar where friends and family can gather. 

On the main floor there is an atmosphere of rustic sophistication. The living areas are spacious, with large windows that look out over the amazing views. A rock fireplace fills one wall and the soaring ceilings open to a second story balcony. The gourmet kitchen is a wonderful gathering spot. Appliances include a six-burner Wolf stove and oven, with a built-in griddle as well as refrigerator and large freezer, both of which are in the kitchen. Since the house is 15 minutes outside of Collbran and an hour away from grocery stores in Grand Junction, it never hurts to have a freezer in a handy location. The kitchen also has plenty of cabinetry and countertops, including a large island in the center.

A large front porch sits across the entire front of the house and the back deck holds a hot tub. There is a three-car detached garage next to the house, as well as a separate RV-sized heated shop, a potting shed and a tack shed. A three-sided, roofed horse barn provides shelter in inclement weather.

The house has both propane for heat and a newer wood-burning stand-alone furnace that sits outside. The furnace can be used as supplementary heat or it can be used as the only heat source, if homeowners don’t mind chopping wood and feeding the furnace. The property provides an endless supply of firewood.

Although the home could make a nice second home for those who want to have a remote escape, both previous owners have lived there year-round, as do the closest neighbors, who take turns clearing the one-mile stretch of road that is not plowed in the winter.

The property has direct access to hiking, horseback riding, skiing and snowmobiling trails on the adjacent national forest land. It’s a great opportunity for those who want to truly be away from it all when they’re at home and who enjoy the outdoors.

For more information about the home or a tour of the property, call Steve Fleming with RE/MAX Two Rivers at 241-3939. Fleming is listing this one-of-a-kind home for $1,275,000.
