This enviable home, while not visible to the world, has been accented and placed for the ultimate level of privacy and entertaining, yet not being over built. At + - 3600 sq ft, the residence possesses the optimal size and is surrounded on every-side by paver decks & gardens. A 2/3 finished basement provides a large storage area and plenty of space for supplies. A plethora of storage abounds. The seller is retired from the nursery business and his green thumb that even Busch Gardens would envy, will leave the new owners with the gift of a mature, groomed mountain garden and lawn. The carefully manicured landscaping is truly special. The strikingly beautiful collection of flowers creates an atmosphere bathed in peace and relaxation.

It's literally everywhere.

While the current owner has traveled and hunted in over 50 countries, South San Juan Basin Ranch is the sanctuary he searched the world over for. He has managed the property meticulously in an effort to promote the population of humming birds to bull elk, and everything in between.
