Welcome to the Winding River Ranch, your classic Colorado equestrian and fishing retreat on the Florida River. This well-loved property was used a family gathering place for multiple generations and is a magical spot - full of memories of family campouts, fishing, and outdoor picnics. 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. Enjoy fishing or a cocktail while sitting on the grassy banks of the Florida River. There is a covered barbecue spot adjacent to the cabin for a cookout. Plenty of room for horseshoes, volleyball, camping, horseback riding, gardening and hobby farming. Enter the property through the gate and follow the curving drive through the 11 acres of irrigated pastures, perfect for a horse set up.The rustic 1 BR cabin was hand-crafted by a woodworker and artist and is tucked behind a graceful stand of Cottonwood trees, close enough to enjoy the sounds of the river. The cabin is 864 SF with a 2 car garage, or use the heated finished garage as living space and you can enjoy 1440 SF. Enter from the homey front porch into the entryway which leads to the two car garage (or bonus room) 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 and the septic system is designed for 4 BR. This is a magical place for folks of all ages to come and enjoy the Colorado lifestyle.
