A rare find in Western Colorado. The in-town location of this 20-acre historic farm belies it’s very rural character. The luxurious 3BR/3BA 2,500 sf 1896 Victorian was built for one of the founders of the town and maintains its status as a pinnacle property to this date. The sale price of the home includes beautiful furnishings with period pieces. Classic architectural detail throughout includes bay windows, pocket doors, 9 1/2 ft. ceilings, original woodwork & floors, original hardware, and stained glass accents. Spacious kitchen with tile floors and a tin ceiling. The stately en suite master bedroom features a walk-in closet and soaking tub. Recently updated foundation and mechanical systems, high-speed optical internet, and city water, sewer and trash collection provide the comfort of modern living. A 5.48 kW solar PV array generates electricity via a net metering arrangement with the local energy provider. Water rights from the Duke Ditch are some of the oldest in the region, dating from the 1890’s and providing water from April 15 to November 1 in an average season. Gated pipe irrigates the gently rolling hay fields, maintained under the national organic protocol, and producing up to 3 cuttings/season. Excess irrigation water feeds the sprinkler system that maintains the large landscaped yard and organic gardens. The property includes a 2-story fruit shed, 65-HP John Deere 2550 tractor and all implements, 10-HP Mainline rototiller, corral panels, solar electric fence, various hand tools, plus bee-keeping equipment.
