Welcome to Winding River Ranch, your classic Colorado equestrian and fishing retreat on the Florida River. This well-loved property was used a family retreat for multiple generations. Suitable for a summer vacation spot or build a large custom estate and live here year-round, this estate is unlike any other. Enjoy 800 feet of private Florida River frontage on nearly 18 acres in a breath-taking peaceful setting. Enter the property through the gate and follow the curving drive through the irrigated pastures, perfect for a horse set up. Surrounded by mature cottonwood trees, and perched on the banks of the Florida River is a warm and cozy rustic cabin. Enter from the homey front porch into the entryway which leads to the two car garage and a bedroom. Upstairs you will find a great room, adorable galley kitchen and full bath. The cabin was hand-built by a master woodworker and has tons of charm - built in shelves, tongue and groove ceiling, wood sculptures, wood burning stoves upstairs and downstairs, even a cute whale weathervane on top. This cabin could also be expanded or kept as a guest cottage. Three separate structures on the property serve as a barn, shop and a garden shed. There is capacity to park and store 4 vehicles, machinery and all calibers of outdoor gear. In the cabin, two overhead garage doors creates an indoor/outdoor living space with built-in wood-burning fireplace. The grounds are gorgeous - there is a covered picnic area with fire pit and tee pee, horse shoe pit, grassy river bank, picture perfect for fly fishing your own personal fishing hole or having a romantic picnic. The upper pasture is 11 acres and is fenced and has pipe irrigation and hay fields. There are several choice building sites to build a new home. This is a magical place for folks of all ages to come and enjoy the Colorado lifestyle.
