About this property

Nothing else in Ouray County compares to this impressive Mountain 'Cabin' with 4696 square feet of heated living space. The home was built in 2009 by the owner as a culmination of over 40 years of his global building experience. Designed to fit the mining, historic, and natural aspects of its surroundings this totally 'off the grid' home is located midway between the towns of Ouray and Silverton and just south of the Ironton townsite. Its architectural features include exposed steel beams, corregated rusted metal, red cedar siding, covered and poured concrete decking, and beautiful stone masonry. The total under roof square footage is 7532 square feet, made up of 4696 square feet of livable space, a 680 square foot garage, and 2156 square feet of covered decks. There are 9 bedrooms and 6 full baths arranged around a massive great room with huge gourmet kitchen with expansive granite counters and top end stainless appliances. The dining and living areas have cathedral ceilings and share two fireplaces and tongue and groove native aspen paneling. There is another large family room downstairs as well as a loft overlooking the great room, so the large gathering areas allow plenty of space for people to gather without feeling crowded. The master bedroom has its own fireplace and luxurious master bath featuring separate vanities with granite tops, travertine shower, and jetted tub. Power is provided through an amazingly designed computer controlled photovoltaic system with 18 solar panels on the roof oriented to maximize solar exposure. These charge a battery bank, and the power is inverted to create typical 110 power as it enters the home. A propane powered backup generator automatically kicks in the rare event the charge runs low. The sale includes three mining claims, situated in some of Ouray County's most scenic spots. Their names are the Emma, the Joker, and Joker #2. The sale includes all three parcels, totalling 26 acres m/l. Red Mountain Creek flows through the property, and the well known landmark--the Joker Boardinghouse-is on the property and included in the sale. Recreational activities are absolutely limitless--hiking, jeeping, hunting, snowshoeing, rock hounding, photography, back country skiing, downhill skiing at Telluride, Durango Mountain Resort, or Silverton Mountain, hot spring soaking--all are within a short walk or drive from your home. This high country cabin home and retreat is accessible year round-the highway is plowed to within just a few hundred yards of your front door. Can you find a
