Perfect home for a family with lots of cars and toys
Room to work & play
While most of us in Western Colorado have a car, there are plenty of motorheads with a collection of cars and toys. The problem is that most homes have enough space for a couple of cars. Worse, some HOAs have a rule against extra cars, boats or jet skis parked out in front of the house.
What’s a guy with a project car, a classic car, a pickup for hauling stuff, a car to use every day, a boat, an RV, and a couple of four-wheelers supposed to do?
He could build a garage in the back yard, he could annoy his neighbors with his collection parked all over the yard, or he could rent a storage area somewhere. He could also take a look at our unique property out on 10 Road in Mack, where there is ample garage space to store the classics, work on the projects and still have room inside the garage for storing the toys and for the cars that get driven everyday.
No one buys a house just to get a decent garage, and there’s a lot to love in the house itself. Built in 1994, the home has more than 2,400 square feet, with three bedrooms, two baths, an enormous family room and the great room concept in the kitchen/dining living area, with 20-foot ceilings in the living area. The house also has a sunroom facing the southwest, with a door that opens to the living area. If that door is open in the winter, the warmth from the sunroom will keep most of the house warm.
The master suite is upstairs, where there is also a large storage area that could also be a great playroom for the children or grandchildren.
There’s a large pantry behind the kitchen and a huge family room on the main floor, as well as two additional bedrooms and a bath.
The home sits on almost nine acres and is surrounded by farmland and desert. There is a natural irrigation pond with year round water, and there are also two cement ponds on a hillside, with a fountain on the top pond, flowing down via waterfall to the lower pond.
Those who remember the cement pond in the Beverly Hillbillies may be sad or delighted that at our unique property in Mack, the cement ponds aren’t really swimming pools. They do, however, make a large, one-of-a-kind water feature that attracts blue herons to the property and doesn’t require weekly cleaning or a daily application of chemicals to keep the water clean.
With this property, however, it’s the garage and the shop that make it stand out. From the front, the three-car detached garage seems large, but when you walk inside, you realize it’s downright cavernous. It’s also built into the side of a hill, and has a separate garage space downstairs that’s accessed from a circular staircase in the garage or a driveway on the side from outside the garage. The upstairs side bay is large enough to accommodate an RV.
In addition to the large garage, there’s a larger shop that has its own car lift, bathroom and man-cave balcony. The shop also has heating and air-conditioning.
The property also has a lean-to in the back, which could be used for additional equipment storage or possibly a shelter for animals.
Although this property has no farmland attached to it, there is an adjacent 50-acre parcel that an owner would be willing to sell, if the new owner of this home has an interest in farming.
Bernadette Fuoco with Sierra Realty is listing this unique property for $625,000.
