288 Marys Road, Ridgway, Colorado, 81432
Long or SImpressive 3332 sq ft estate home located on lush 1.4 acre parcel right in the heart of the beautiful valley between Ridgway and Ouray. This is one of those unique places that people have followed for years! It has lots of room, has been well maintained and loved and no HOA to tell you what you can park, the color of your siding, or how long you keep your garage doors up! Additionally, the property is watered by a well to allow you to keep things green and the costs down. Tri County water is the domestic drinking water source, and it's integrated into the sprinkler system on the south side of the home. A concrete entrance road widens to a large parking area on the east side of the home, giving you lots of room to park your RVs, trailers, ATVs and other goodies. This access continues to the south and fully encircles the house, giving you a unique feature--both the upper and lower levels are walkout! For those with access challenges, this is tremendous and even simple tasks of unloading groceries become easier because of this setup. The main, upper level includes very roomy gathering spaces, including a kitchen with a wealth of cabinetry, twin pantries,good working areas and an additional eat-in portion as you head to the dining room. There's a nice mudroom that leads out to the parking area on the east side of the home. The living room and dining rooms are generously sized, and will provide so much room for your loved ones to gather. The living room is on the east side, so it stays cooler in the later afternoon. The wood fireplace will take off any potential chills in the fall and winter. Connecting the living room with the kitchen is the dining room in the southwest corner. It's wrapped by a host of windows to bring in great light. The primary entrance is on the east side to the left of the garage doors. It's expansive and allows views to the living level upstairs as well as to the family room, storage area and oversized laundry downstairs. The 1080 square foot garage enters from the north side of the entry, and the whole lower level serves as a great private space for visitors, or perhaps a long or short term rental. The family room on the south side of the entry has its own fireplace, and wraps around to a large storage room, that's essentially the size of the dining room upstairs. In the past it's been used as a workout room. So the family room and storage room could make a nice living space that could be used as an apartment. The laundry is roughly the size of the kitchen upstairs, and has extra room for a fridge, freezer, other storage and the relatively new water heater and hot water heat furnace system. There's a 1/2 bath in the laundry area conveniently located just inside the home from the garage. The former owner loved the mountains and back country of the area and the garage is arranged for rock projects and outside toys. There's not just room along the sides for three cars, but also there's additional depth. This will be your base for all Ridgway and Ouray have to offer. The property is elegant and green and has many willow and fruit trees as well as conifers. There's a large garden area and the property has been fully landscaped and terraced. The back portion of the 1.4 acres is still natural, providing good privacy. This is a legacy type property--the previous owners shared many lovely times with each other as well as with family and friends. Whether a full time residence, part year escape from the heat, weekend escape or income property, this home on its lush acres has what you're looking for! Make your arrangements to come see it today!
