Country living at its best. Great views of Pikes Peak with a short, scenic drive to Colorado Springs or the local military bases. Less than 2 1/2 hour drive to ski slopes and Denver. The yard is fenced with a combination split rail and rod iron fenced yard w/ sprinkler system. The home is a comfortable 3800SF home that has open floor plan with 20' vaulted tongue and groove ceilings and cedar logs in great room. Three bedrooms are on the upper floor, while the lower level has a walk-out basement with one large bedroom and a great office area/family room. There are French doors going into the den with lots of light and room for studying/relaxing. The bar area is perfect for entertaining - dishwasher and hickory cupboards in bar make entertaining easy and fun. Speaking of entertaining, there is a huge room big enough to hold a massive theater system and room to still put a pool table. Also, there is a huge storage room with 7,000lb gun safe as well as a large storage area/safe area underneath the staircase. Most appliances are included. The home has custom wood-blinds throughout the house and carpet in basement and bedrooms. There is ceramic tile in kitchen, laundry room, bar and bathrooms. Central heat and AC with ceiling fans throughout the house offer both cool summers and warm winters. Not to mention there is a gas fireplace surrounded by a beautiful slate fireplace. The roof is less than 4 years old and the house is wired for a hot tub. The entire estate is less than 3-miles to nearby schools and 2 miles to small town of Ellicott. The 40 acres has the seasonal Upper Black Squirrel Creek running the length of the property north to south. Wildlife abound, including mule deer, pronghorn antelope, coyote, fox, jack rabbits and cottontails. Looking east from the back of the house overlooks acres of wide open spaces with large farms and ranches. The 40-acres is fenced/cross-fenced and ready for horses/livestock. Also included, is a permitted irrigation well. We had the well tested and it pumped 125 gallons/minute. It needs to be re-lined and the pump needs to be updated, but it could be put back in use to irrigate. As with any water rights, we suggest buyer due diligence as to the possible uses of the water right and irrigation well. Come see this exceptional property.
