HILLTOP RANCH ECO-FRIENDLY HOUSE ON 160 ACRES IN-HOLDING An exceptional opportunity to own a rare 160 acre in-holding, within the highly coveted trophy Unit 61. This ranch offers you an environmentally conscious, custom built solar adobe home (with 2 garage/workshops) on 160 private acres in Southwestern Colorado. The ranch is an in-holding completely surrounded by BLM and Uncompahgre National Forest lands - and positioned to capture spectacular mountain and canyon views from every direction. Enjoy your mornings observing the glowing sunrises over the San Juan Mountains, and evenings that offer vibrant sunsets over the LaSal Mountains to the west. Wrights Mesa own signature mountain, the Lone Cone, sits visible to the south, and the Uncompahgre Plateau to the north. Enjoy the peaceful lifestyle in the heart of nature! The 2,000sf home and the adjacent 2 garages are highly engineered to live off the grid without giving up any comforts. Solar power, rain catchment & storage systems, back-up generator and propane tank will keep your costs and maintenance issues low in this very energy efficient property. The main house has an enclosed front entry hall, great room with kitchen, three bedrooms, two baths, and a large glass enclosed sunroom with flower beds, overlooking the expansive vistas. Straw bale construction, adobe finishes, wood and stamped concrete floors, and new custom blinds on every window. The 1,000+ garage/workshop (with an additional storage room) sits close to the main house - a great working space with fabulous southern light from the bank of windows. An additional 2 car garage sits nearby, with extensive windows allowing great natural light. Private and serene, this property makes the perfect home and/or retreat. Step outside on your oversized patio to enjoy the lovely light, long sunsets and pristine surroundings that make this such a special property. A quick 15 minutes to the town or airport of Nucla, or 40 minutes to Norwood, provides shopping and dining options. Telluride to the east, with its legendary skiing, golf and Mountain Village Resort, and the playgrounds of Moab to the west, are each located just over an hour's drive, while either Grand Junction or Montrose are a 2-hour drive.
