Comfortable living in this spacious ranch-style home in the country. Situated just 3.2 miles southeast of Hotchkiss, this well-maintained home is close to town, shopping, schools, and the medical clinic, yet private and quiet, with simply spectacular views. The home is all on one level with no stairs except for the sunken family room. It has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, country kitchen, a large storage and hobby room, family room, and living/dining area. Total lot size is almost 3 acres, with about an acre of irrigated lawn. The views of the West Elks are protected, in that no one can ever build in front of the views, and the large lawn is irrigated by 1.3 acre feet of Smith Fork Project water. The home has an oversized 2-car attached garage, as well as a detached 2-car garage/shop building for projects and more storage. Domestic water is provided by Crawford Mesa Domestic Water Company, which is known for its crystal-clear water from mountain springs. The home is heated with natural gas and cooled with a central evaporative cooler, and a wood fireplace is present as well. Utility bills are low. Recent updates include new laminate flooring. This is a well-built home. The new consolidated high school for the valley, North Fork High School, is a short 2-minute drive from the property.
