Prime opportunity for those seeking a homegrown lifestyle to own a 4.85 acre Horse Property just outside town with wide valley views.
If you have been searching for a home and property well suited for horses/animals, within 15 minutes from town, and that won’t break the bank; you’ve likely been disappointed or have missed an opportunity due to the competitive nature of the market right now. Chances are, most homes you’ve seen are either too far out of town, situated on parcels of dense sage brush, outside your price range, or are already under contract/recently sold.
The property at 294 Pashuta, however, offers nearly five acres of pasture with seasonal ditch use ready for horses/animals, located just 10 minutes from town in a spacious neighborhood boasting expansive valley views, and is the most affordable property of its kind on the market.
But don’t just take my word for it. Come on out and see for yourself.
Country living with an accommodating location
The first thing you will notice approaching the property is the country feel of the neighborhood. That’s because many folks out here are just like you in that town living just doesn’t fit the bill. You need some elbow room to spread out equipment, vehicles and other toys. You need a place where the kids have ample space to play, race around on dirt bikes, or can just be kids without actually venturing too far from the house. You need a place that can support the homegrown, country-esque lifestyle you lead. And you will find all of this at 294 Pashuta.
A place the horses can call home
The yard space immediately surrounding the home is somewhat of a blank canvas for you to mold into whatever fits your needs. You’ll also appreciate the 30’x12’ shed for additional storage of equipment and tools.
Whether you’re a current or aspiring horse owner, or simply like the idea of utilizing the land you live on, the pasture space will certainly come in handy. A corral area for the horses is ready for use with gates, 3 board fencing and shelter already in place along with plenty of room for expansion. The pasture has a ditch running right through it for seasonal irrigation use. This is also a practical set up for raising a heffer or two, chickens, pigs etc.; especially if you have kiddo’s involved in 4H. In fact, the current owner hasn’t made a trip to the grocery store for meat in years.
Beyond the corral area opens up to roughly 4 more acres of quality pasture ideal for horse grazing and riding. Shared irrigation rights in place throughout the neighborhood with a ditch running right through the pasture to help keep things fresh during the season (typically early May-July).
But the horses and animals aren’t the only ones who have it good here.
Sound & functional living
Much like the essence of being out in the country, the house offers simple and functional living as well. While you won’t find top-of-the-line cosmetic finishes throughout, you will find quality, reliable upgrades such as a recently replaced well pump, heating system, and appliances.
The 17’ x 14’living room is illuminated by natural light streaming in from big, east facing windows and the vaulted ceilings throughout keep everything feeling nice and open. Here you’ll also enjoy the added comfort of wood floors with radiant in floor heat as well as a main level master bedroom.
You’ll appreciate the like-new tile and appliances in the kitchen/utility room including a recently replaced energy efficient boiler. The attached 2 car garage offers additional storage and/or convenient vehicle parking. Anyone who has spent a few winters in the Gunnison valley can attest to how invaluable a garage is, especially one that is attached. No longer will you have to brave the -20 morning temps, post holing through 2 feet of new snow to dig out the truck and scrape windshields.
Private access to incredible National Forest & Wilderness Areas
If any of this is starting to sound appealing, it gets even better. As part of Castle Mountain Irrigation, Road and Recreation Association, Ohio Meadows Subdivision property owners are offered access to thousands of acres of Gunnison National Forest as well as the West Elk Wilderness through Wilderness Streams, located at the upper end of the Ohio Creek Valley. Why is this so special? 1) Private fishing access on Pass, Ohio and Castle Creeks. 2) This access point shaves off roughly 4-5 miles in reaching more remote areas like Castle Creek, Costo Lake trailhead, and much more. Backcountry enthusiasts can reach these same areas from the Swampy Pass trailhead, but will be in for a 5 mile hike first, whereas coming from the Wilderness Streams gate; you’ll have roughly a 1.5 mile approach. In short, World class hunting, hiking, backpacking, and fly fishing are what these thousands of acres worth of Gunnison National Forest/West Elk Wilderness are comprised of.
Ample space, useful pasture, big views, peaceful neighborhood, with the added bonus of primo access to world class hiking, fishing and hunting. Priced at $425k, don’t miss this opportunity at that conveniently located horse property you’ve been after.
