47940 E Highway 160 Bayfield CO Real Estate

Are you looking for a Colorado log home and guest house with the potential for an equestrian estate on a private - yet easy to access - property? This beautiful 20 acre parcel is accessed from Hwy 160, just east of Bayfield. Enter the private, gated driveway and cross Beaver Creek as it winds through several acres of newly seeded pasture land. The winding driveway then climbs the treed hillside to the gorgeous log home. The front entry greets you with large timbers, stone walls, and a large alder entry door. This wonderfully maintained home is clean and well lit. You will be impressed by the gigantic reclaimed beams highlighting the interior space, and you will be drawn into the cook's kitchen. This kitchen is a true masterpiece with granite countertops, Viking Range, GE Monogram double refrigerator, double ovens, microwave and warming drawer. There is plenty of storage in the custom alder cabinetry, as well as extra pantry, refrigerator, and cabinetry space in the adjacent utility room. The kitchen is open to the dining and living areas and features a two sided gas fireplace that can be enjoyed from any location in these main rooms. There is an adjacent game room, which is cozy and fun, and has a gas stove of its own. French doors lead from the game room to a covered back patio area which overlooks the back lawn, landscaping, and aspens. The main bedroom is well appointed with the main bath that has dual vanities, a huge custom two headed tiled shower, and a bubble tub that will make you feel like you are bathing in champagne! From this main bedroom the French doors lead to a large deck overlooking the front yard. The 2 other bedrooms in the home are cute and nicely appointed. The bunk house is highly functional, with a cute gas stove, and a private bedroom. Everything that was done for this home was built with longevity in mind from the tile and hardwood floors, to the fine trim work and huge beams, the high efficiency forced air furnace, and tankless water heater. The metal roof is about 8 years old, the decks are composite decking, the full perimeter is fenced. You will not be disappointed with the efforts this seller has put into this property. The homesite is private and elevated, and offers views of the forested mountainsides adjacent to Severn Peak to the north. Park your RV or other large toys in the open driveway. There are multiple outbuildings including a detached 2 car garage with additional carport spaces, a greenhouse, and a couple of other storage buildings. And there is a small corral and a couple of stables. By the way, there is no HOA!
