Vast views with peaceful privacy. This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, split level home is perched on a hill overlooking the Collegiate Peaks and historic Salida. As soon as you walk in, you can feel the easy vibe of this house. The main floor includes a very well maintained, bright & sunny kitchen. Enjoy your meals by the two huge picture windows looking out to the western views. A wood fireplace on this level will keep everyone warm on chilly evenings, adding charm and ambiance to the room. Through the sliding glass doors is a large floating deck in the backyard. It makes a nice outdoor extension of the indoor living area and is a perfect spot for a firepit or a porch swing to take in the sunrises and sunsets, or for watching meteor showers. The bedrooms upstairs are surprisingly large and the closet space is ample. A beautifully remodeled bathroom in the master bedroom feels like a five star hotel accommodation. Laundry is located conveniently near the bedrooms. Downstairs is a large garage that could be converted into additional living space. You won’t have to sacrifice storage because the six foot tall crawl space offers incredible extra room to hide Christmas decorations or other items you need handy but out of site. Three acres of land without any HOAs and a domestic well that allows for 1 acre of outside watering and additional dwelling units offers this property great use and growth opportunities. This is a truly special house and location. Only minutes from schools, easy access to the Methodist Mountain Trail System for Mountain Biking and Hiking, and a short ride to downtown Salida, this will make a comfortable permanent home or weekend getaway from the city. It is move-in ready with a few new windows, freshly painted decks, new water heater and pressure tank, new hardwood floors in guest bedroom. Come see this one today!
