A search of properties in the surrounding area might return plenty of luxury homes on small acreages with restrictive covenants or larger acreages with not-so-luxurious homes. This western Colorado ranchette has the perfect balance of both. Located just 5 short miles east of Bayfieldalong US Highway 160, this ranchette property offers excellent access and amazing seclusion. The view from the highway reveals a beautiful meadow with the meandering, seasonal Beaver Creek running through it. Beyond the automatic gated entry stretches the paved drivewaycomplete with a heavy duty bridge crossing the creek. The paved drive winds along the meadow and climbs the gentle hillside to the homelocated in a beautiful ponderosa pine forest. The wooded hillside blocks the home from the highway and creates a tranquil and secluded setting. The perimeter of the property is entirely fenced and has the potential to make an excellent horse property. This western Colorado ranchette home was once the foremans house of a large western Colorado ranch. Originally constructed in the 1980s, the home has undergone extensive remodels and additions through the years. From the outside, the modest log exterior seamlessly blends together leaving no evidence of the various evolutions. The stone wrapped entry complete with solid post and beam construction frame the beautiful oversized alder front door. Upon entering the home, the luxurious western flair is quite obvious. Vaulted ceilings and exposed 200 year-old reclaimed beams salvaged from the Rico, CO area, frame the interior of the home. The quality of the remodel is instantly revealed with the high-end finishes and quality touches throughout. Stone tile and wood floors, solid alder doors, quality wood clad windows, and the stone hearth on the two-sided fireplace off the kitchen are just a few of the qualtiy touches throughout this western Colorado ranchette. The kitchen is the heart of this custom home starting with custom knotty alder cabinets topped with quality slab granite countertops. The tiled backsplash glows with under-cabinet lighting and accent lighting above the cabinets creates a nice display of indirect lighting. The list of GE Monogram appliances includes a double refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, double ovens, microwave and warming drawer. A commercial exhaust hood is mounted over the Viking gas range. An informal eating area is located just off the kitchen with a formal dining area and sitting room located conveniently off to the side. The main house is just over 3,
