Located in prime canyon/mountain land SW Colorado, property is within minutes to 2 hours of so many recreational activities. 4 wheeling, raft and hike in Moab; ski in Telluride; hike, hunt & then fish the wild streams of the San Juan Mtns; fish & boat at McPhee or a bit further is Lake Powell.

Off the grid, house electric will run off either the solar or the newer generator & both are wired into house. 12 volt solar system consists of 4-6 volt batteries, 24 watt inverter w/480 solar watts capacity on roof. Generator only has 50-70 hours on it & supplies 5500 running watts.

The bath house has a washer and dryer (staying) and a toilet. A small greenhouse, another storage building & an additional wood storage shed complete the oubuildings.Another option would be to create a bunkhouse in the garage or reefer to be able rent out to hunters or others. There is also ATV ramp which allows easy loading!
The log home has a great deck faces toward Dolores River Canyon & LaSalle Mtns and the pictures just don't give the view justice. The rock patio between the house and the garage has been well done & includes a fire pit. The owner has groomed the landscaping with beautiful flowers, several raised garden beds, 2 apricots & 4 apple trees, shade trees & ~20x75 garden area tilled & fenced, and a compost bin. 5 rain barrels are strategically placed to capture rain/snow runoff.

As you can tell, there's more here than I can describe adequately so come take a look!
