With a vaulted tongue & groove aspen ceiling the spacious Great Room is open to the living room, dining area, and kitchen, creating the ideal space to interact with family or guests. The home is detail rich with walnut floors and beetle kill pine trim, along with energy efficient in-floor heat and CAT-5 wiring for those needing to work from home. You won't believe the phenomenal views from the many oversized windows that take in panoramic scenes of the pasture, 2 creeks, and forest. Guests can stay in their own private 725 square foot living quarters just down the hill. The guest quarters include a kitchen, 3/4 bath, private bedroom, and living room within a 1,380 square foot fully insulated and heated Morton building.

Opportunities to own 40 acres that back to National Forest are becoming more rare. Accessed off County Road PP46, you can continue uphill along the Forest Service road to beautiful secluded Mosquito Lake and continue back along the Bonanza loop past numerous mines to the ghost town of Bonanza. Once you're back home, you can cool off in the creek, relax by the firepit, and enjoy the peacefulness only found in an alpine setting. The pasture is currently part of a grazing lease, affording you lower taxes and a beautiful rural backdrop.
This home is being offered partially furnished, with all appliances, including a steam sauna. If you are looking for a secluded mountain home to retreat to, this property may be the one for you!
