Property Location

This property sits in the scenic Cochetopa Hills 15 miles to the west of the town of Saguache, Colorado.  Public lands surround the property on all sides - Forest Service to the south, and BLM land on the other three sides - giving lots of privacy and the feel of an even larger spread of land.  Though it is private, Colorado Highway 114 lies less than two miles away for easy access.

The view from the hillside shows the unspoiled and private nature of the property, and the beautiful land on which it sits.

Home Tour

The home sits on a sunny south-facing bluff overlooking a mixture of trees and grassland and across a small valley to forested hillside of douglas fir.  This picture shows a small shed at the far left, and a corral at the far right.

Stepping stones lead to the entrance of the home.  This picture shows the solar photovoltaic panels on the roof.  The rounded objects in front of the home are mini-greenhouses for gardening.  Rather than using tires on this home, Michael Reynolds designed a concrete wall due to the local geology of the building site.

Planters visible upon entering the home line its entire length of the front.   The sellers have used this space to grow a variety of edible and ornamental plants.  A brick walkway adjoins the planter with concrete floors beyond.

The great room occupies the east side of the home with a kitchen area in the back and the living area to the right.  Two large kitchen countertops below abundant cabinets provide ample work areas space for a dining room table next to it.  A SunFrost combination refrigerator and freezer allows food storage with minimal energy use.

The living space has room for a heating stove and cabinetry for an entertainment center.

Drapes run the back of the home concealing the systems areas and closets.

The first of the homes bathrooms sits just beyond the kitchen.  It features a shower.  Blinds within the glass allow for privacy or can be opened to bring in light.

A washing machine sits in the nook next to the bathroom.

The bedroom sits at the west end of the home.  Imagine waking up to the spectacular mountain views out the window.  The bedroom features its own bathroom.  This picture shows the tub through the door.

This view shows the other side of the bathroom.

A side mudroom leads to the back entrance of the home.
