Mountain Cabin For Sale
Million-Dollar View Dominates This Great Getaway
Imagine a getaway in Southern Colorado
just an easy drive from Texas
For Sale by owner
It features 35 acres. It has a Million-Dollar view of The Spanish Peaks and Sangre de Cristos. It has a modern cabin built in 1984.
In fact, if this spectacular view was located in California near Lake Tahoe or Aspen or Vail, the price tag would be much more than a million bucks. You can have it for a lot less. A wealthy Californian would just pick another building site on the 35 acres and use the existing cabin as a guest house.
Do not settle for a lot or a building site that doesn't have both views -- The Spanish Peaks and Sangre de Cristos. If you are going to live here or have a cabin getaway why would you buy without getting the best view possible?
No other lot in the entire, huge Big Pine Ridge subdivision, has a better view than this lot. There are at least three properties for sale at Big Pine Ridge that are more expensive and don't have this great view. Front porch has the unobstructed panorama and leads to a hot tub for nights under the clearest sky you have ever viewed the constellations. In our many years here we saw two comets with the naked eye.
Water, electricity, phone lines all completed. A detached oversized garage (24'X 28') is also included.
Casa Wahatoya is a beautiful, modern cabin built in 1984 on 35 acres with a million-dollar view of the Spanish Peaks and Sangre de Cristos. It's only four miles north of Weston, Colorado on Highway 12, "The Scenic Highway of The Legends." You are only 10 miles from geologically inspiring Stonewall, where you drive through one of the dikes, or volcanic arms, that radiate out from the Spanish Peaks like spokes on a wheel.
You are only 12 miles from beautiful Monument Lake and another mile to North Lake. It's a trout fishing paradise. Continue north on The Scenic Highway of The Legends to Cuchara, a tiny tourist-ski town located high in the mountains at 9,000 feet. Here you will find and old west town with a few shops and restaurants.
The cabin is cozy and comfortable with a fireplace for winter stays and a porch to enjoy the view in the summer and watch the hummingbirds stage air battles. Wildlife seen in the area include bear, fox, bobcat, mountain lion, mule deer, elk and countless kinds of birds including bald eagle and red-tailed hawk. (Don't leave food out in the summer or Mr. Bear will visit).
The cabin includes dishwasher, microwave, cook-top range, satellite TV, and all the other conveniences. The sleeping loft has creative home-made beds (with lots of unseen storage) that allow you to stay in the sack and see the awesome views. Both these two queen beds have twin trundle bed that slide out from beneath. You could sleep eight upstairs.
Once you are settled in, you can go for hikes down the road or along Big Pine Ridge, which is anchored by huge sandstone rock formations and ages-old juniper trees hugging to the ridge line. Sit on one of these rocks and enjoy an incredible sunset looking west toward the Sangre de Cristos. Looking south you can see all the way to New Mexico, just 20 miles away.
The view includes Ponderosa pines, Engelmann Spruce, Douglas-Fir, Pinon pine and scub oak. You are in the pinon-juniper elevation at 7,500 feet with countless barrel cactus, pickly pear and others. No need for air conditioning because of the altitude.
This boondocks location is about 100 miles from Pueblo and 150 to Colorado Springs. Trinidad is 30 miles away and has Safeway and Wal-Mart grocery stores. Trinidad is a historic old mining town that still has evidences of the Old West. Bat Masterson and Doc Holliday hung out here, an important stop on the Santa Fe Trail.
