Located just outside of Hotchkiss, Colorado, is this beautiful mountain and country home with irrigated acreage, multiple outbuildings, and spectacular views. The property encompasses just over 20 acres and features some of the best water rights in the area (470 shares of Fire Mountain / .033 cfs of spring water) with a pressurized NRCS system installed in 2020. The main home is 3,650 sq ft with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The home’s bathrooms, bedrooms, and mudroom have been remodeled in recent years. Located on the south side of the property is the 2 bay garage with workshop, raised garden beds, small horse stable, and a 30x60 ft barn. Behind the main home is a 725 sq ft, newly renovated ADU that is used as a guest house / AirBnb rental unit. Unique to Colorado, the home also has a 40,000 gallon / 13 ft depth in-ground pool. The main residence is powered by DMEA electric, while the rest of the property is abundantly charged by a new solar system that can handle the guest house, barn, 2 RV hookups, and additional outbuildings.
The property has just over 15 irrigated acres, and is watered by pressurized sprinkler guns. The water is fed from Fire Mountain Canal water and runs through a newly installed NCRS piped system. This parcel’s water divide is upstream of the divider box used by other neighbors, providing for stronger water flow.. There is a small pond in the backyard that feeds the sprinkler system for the lawn and drip system for the raised garden beds. Overflow water not utilized by the pressurized irrigation fills a 13ft deep pool, which is kept clean with a sand filter.
Located on Sunshine Mesa, this property has only a few neighbors that maintain beautiful homes and hay pastures. The road up is well maintained by the county, and private roads extend on either side to neighboring properties. Unlike the bordering parcels, this property does not have any restricting covenants. It is a peaceful and private area with kind neighbors.
The 725 sq ft Airbnb rents out quickly and is a great income producing asset. The property also has 2 RV hookup sites with electric and water. The historic use of this property has been as a working farm for small livestock, hay, and plant production. There is plenty of acreage for cattle, horses, sheep, and other livestock. The water is plentiful for growing hay and running several greenhouses.
The property overlooks Hotchkiss, Paonia and Crawford with amazing views. The area is known for their orchards, vineyards, cattle farms, and plenty of delicious farm to table businesses. From summer to winter, you are only a short distance away from world class recreation. Locals enjoy fly-fishing the North Fork River, exploring the Grand Mesa and its 300+ lakes, sight-seeing the Black Canyon, or hiking & skiing the peaks of the West Elk Mountains.
