Rare horse property offers a gorgeous view, opportunity for equine business or play
An Equine Oasis...
Sometimes when someone calls a piece of real estate a potential horse property, that might mean there’s an acre or so that could be fenced and a place for a barn that could be built. That’s not the case for our unique property at 2183 M Road. With 23 irrigated acres, two riding arenas, a five-stall barn, a hay shed, two tack rooms and a guest house, it’s a horse lover’s dream. There’s even a separate studio in the barn with a kitchenette, bathroom and a bed so owners have a place to stay when the mares are foaling.
It’s also a unique property in the amount of mature trees all across the property. A former owner wanted to plant an oasis in the surrounding desert and planted several stands of shade trees. One of the riding arenas is completely surrounded by mature shade trees, making it a cool and comfortable place to ride, even on the hottest days.
A year-round pond with an aerator adds to the property’s appeal, and the views of Colorado National Monument, Mount Garfield and Grand Mesa are one-of-a-kind.
The home was built in 1982 and newspaper pictures and online photos don’t do it justice. From the front, the home doesn’t appear spacious, but inside, there’s more than 3,700 square feet of living space, with a traditional basement.
Upstairs, the home features his and hers living areas, with the more informal living area off the kitchen and eating space. A pellet stove in the informal living area heats up the entire upstairs in the winter. A more formal living room sits between the sun porch and the formal dining area, and also has both a fireplace and a wall of windows with a sliding glass door to appreciate the views.
The sun porch could also work as an office, a library, an exercise room or whatever space homeowners need. The three upstairs bedrooms are all spacious and roomy, with plenty of closet space. The master suite includes a five-piece bath and access to a private patio.
The kitchen has plenty of work areas and plenty of cabinetry. Just in case there aren’t enough storage cupboards, there’s also a walk-in pantry. All appliances in the kitchen, as well as the washer and dryer in the laundry area, will stay with the house.
The current owner had new Anderson custom windows installed all over the house a year ago, which show off the incredible views to the south.
Downstairs, there’s a brand new 3/4 bath, a sitting area, a non-conforming bedroom and a large storage room.
The guest house is attached to the hay shed and includes a separate bedroom, a kitchen/living area and a 3/4 bath.
In addition to the shade trees, there are also a few fruit trees, raspberry bushes and strawberry beds on the property. The landscape around the house includes additional shade trees and flowering bushes and shrubs, giving the back patio a resort feeling.
This property could work well for multiple generations in one household or for anyone with a horse or other agricultural business. Sharon Vaughn with the Vaughn Clark Group at Coldwell Banker is listing the property for $950,000.
