Hotchkiss CO luxury log home and horse property on 70 acres 

The Laroux Creek Ranch is a luxury log home and Colorado horse property on 70 acres located between Hotchkiss and Cedaredge in the southwest part of the state, about an hour southeast of Grand Junction. The ranch has an appealing combination of easy living, gorgeous views, irrigated hay meadows, horse facilities, and a well-built, comfortable log home with a large great room and a stunning kitchen. The home has a green energy component to it, with radiant in-floor heat supplemented by solar hot water panels. 

Quality improvements on a Colorado lifestyle property 

The Laroux Creek Ranch has a very nice set of improvements for the buyer seeking a comfortable mountain lifestyle with recreation, gardening, and agriculture. The home is a very comfortable 3,447 square feet, with a large and spacious master bedroom, a stunning 600-square-foot chef’s kitchen, and a large great room with vaulted ceiling supported by carved log rafters. The massive natural river rock fireplace extends to both the interior and exterior of the home and speaks of hearth and home. Horses are a welcome amenity on the Laroux Creek Ranch, with horse pastures and a 3-stall horse barn with separate paddocks. The horse barn has simple wrangler’s quarters, with a sleeping room and ¾ bath. For machinery and storage, there is a metal-sided utility barn with 3 garage bays. Lastly, the original 1894 homesteader’s farmhouse has been remodeled with some of its original furnishings to provide a 1-bedroom, 1,050-square-foot guest house.

Redlands Mesa is known as a great place to garden and “go green” 

For those who are familiar with the agricultural bounty and mild climate of western Colorado, Redlands Mesa is a prime destination. Local farmers grow honey, hay, beef, lamb, dairy, fruit, wine grapes, hops, elk, bison, and many more crops. The combination of mountain spring water irrigation, cool nights, hot summer days, and a long growing season makes for a gardener’s dream. This property is no exception, with a well-engineered system of drip irrigation lines going to the grape trellis, herb gardens, raised garlic beds, and landscaped flower gardens. The property has approximately 17 acres of grass/alfalfa hayfields served by engineered gated pipe irrigation lines. You can easily grow enough hay to feed your horses and have enough to sell a few tons as well. 

Hunting, fishing, mountain biking, rafting, hiking, skiing, mountain biking, boating--western Colorado is a recreation paradise 

If you’re looking for ground zero for Colorado recreation, this is the spot. Deer inhabit the property year-round, and elk love the nearby mountains. Horseback riding, hiking, fishing, boating, camping, kayaking, skiing—they’re all on the list. Telluride, Aspen, and Crested Butte are all about 2 ½ hours away, and Powderhorn, a local ski area, is a little more than half an hour. Grand Junction and Montrose, both of which have big-box shopping, car dealers, and regional airports, are less than an hour away.
