12665 Hwy 62 Highway Snow Drift
Ridgway, CO 81432



This property is one of the most beautiful properties in North America! In all my travels I've never seen such beauty. Strategically situated, right on Colorado State Highway 62, Snow Drift is just 10 minutes from Ridgway, 20 minutes from the Ouray hot springs, and 30 minutes from Telluride, making this property the best location of the entire San Miguel / Ouray county area. Snow Drift Ranch is the only ranch that includes the very top of the Dallas Divide! "The Dallas Divide was recognized as the #1 Fall Foliage Spot in the entire state of Colorado by Colorado Life Magazine (Sept/October 2016) surpassing Aspen, Vail, Steamboat, Telluride and all others in the state." There are views of the Sneffels Range and Cimarron Ranges out every window. This beautiful home is easily accessible year round, as the driveway turns out onto HWY 62, yet far enough off the highway to offer total privacy, making it perfect for seclusion, family, friends, or company business. And, since the nearest full time neighbor is miles away, you can count on a gorgeous, pitch black night sky free from any light pollution all year round. The home was built in three phases and is truly an engineering marvel! Built by one of the best engineers ever to graduate from MIT and Harvard, it surely couldn't be easily replicated. The original home is built of hand hewn logs, and has the look and feel of an old world log home. The second and third phases of the home blend well and have modern amenities with high quality finishes. Overall, there are 4 plus bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 2 full kitchens in the main house and additions. There is a very large steam shower, and luxuriously finished handicap bathroom on the main level. There is even another luxurious steam shower off the current master bedroom. Offices are found at each wing of the home. There's a very large room on the top floor of the newest addition that would be great for large family gatherings, or could be used as a large conference room. There is also another conference room and library area on the main floor of this addition. It is directly adjacent to complete guest quarters located within the building, a sanctuary that offers a private living room, bathroom, steam room and bed room with an astonishing view of Mount Sneffels right out of the window. There is a very large heated workshop that is connected to a two/three car heated garage with an epoxy-coated floor and two remote controlled, commercial grade garage. The huge workshop, large enough for another vehicle, is se
