A rare gem of a mountain sanctuary on almost 2 acres, this beautifully cared-for home high up in foothills, is an alpine gardener's dream. Nestled within a piñon-juniper forest with immaculately-tended gardens, rich with organic soil, this charming abode is perched on a hill at the edge of the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness. Epic views of the 14,000 foot peaks above await you from your rooftop deck. A covered entry leads you into the mudroom & through French doors to a bright, airy & spacious great room, with vaulted ceiling & exposed beams. The soft aspen adds a light & airy feel to the inviting living space. The kitchen boasts a chef's quality Blue Star range & a beautiful maple butcher block island, featuring extra storage. The harmonious architecture of this home integrates open-plan living with private spaces. In-floor radiant heat beneath Saltillo tile & Lopi Endeavor wood stove will keep you cozy in your blissful retreat. Bright sunshine from large windows on the south-west side of the house invites you through a broad archway to the guest bedroom & versatile sunroom (yoga studio, office, or guest suite), with serene views through the treetops to the valley below. A large wrap-around screened porch or 'catio', is ideal for bug-free summer living & keeping your pets safe, while overlooking your blooming flower garden. Upstairs features the cozy master bedroom loft, boasting brand new carpet & opening to the sweeping roof deck, with breathtaking 360 degree views of the valley & peaks of the Sangre de Cristo range. Follow a little path to the 144 sq ft heated, wired guest cabin (art or mediation studio) & a 220 sf attached greenhouse. This rare property boasts the best of all worlds: it is a sanctuary within easy reach of town or mountain adventure. Stroll across to South Crestone Creek Trail, through the woods to town in one direction, or hike into the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness with hundreds of miles of wilderness trails in the other direction.
