Peace Valley Ranch located on the valley-floor has been lovingly cared for and is surrounded by glorious 360 degree views. This home has been lovingly cared for since it was built in 1888 and remodeled in 1997 and 2006. The original character of this home and outbuildings has been carefully preserved. Horse property on less than 80 acres is extremely hard to find on the valley floor today. This ÃƒÂ¯Ã‚Â¿Ã‚Â½grandfathered-inÃƒÂ¯Ã‚Â¿Ã‚Â½ property and its pastoral desirability is truly exceptional. The neighboring ranch is under conservation easement which means your west and south views are protected forever. Your north and east boundaries are bordered by a 320 acre plus cattle ranch.
The ranch house on 17 acres is tucked into giant cottonwoods and the country charm is enhanced with white, wooden fencing and carefully restored outbuildings. The 2518 SF home with 4 very large bedrooms and 3 baths can accommodate a large family or provide lots of room for guests. The sunny, welcoming kitchen and dining area with their expanse of windows invite you to sit awhile and take in the panorama of the towering Sangre de Cristo mountain range.
The upgrades feature refaced kitchen cabinets, new countertops and many new windows. Tile has been added to the kitchen/dining area and both downstairs baths. The remodeling includes not only the interior of the home but also the well, a commercial septic, and metal roof on the home. The large mudroom and utility allows convenient access from the backdoor private deck. And outbuildings include a 1260 SF barn with large loft. The barn is sectioned into a 330 SF garage, a 510 SF Barn and a 420 SF feeding room with troughs, stalls and direct access to the corrals. Other outbuildings include a workshop, a woodshed and a chicken house. Totally fenced and cross fenced the property has excellent grass from the run off irrigation of the neighboring ranch and a wonderful small pond. Access to the National Forest is very close and you are just minutes from the Rainbow Trial. And the Old Colony Trial Head is already being cleared for good access this summer.
Peace Valley Ranch has it all and is conveniently located just seven miles from Westcliffe, on a county-maintained road. This unique and beautiful piece of Westcliffe history is priced at $439,500.
