BARNES RANCH BRING YOUR OFFER! OWNER IS READY TO MOVE ON! AN OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME ONLY COMES ALONG ABOUT ONCE A WEEK! THIS IS YOUR WEEK! The Barnes Ranch is a secluded masterpiece located in rural Custer County not far from Colorado Springs. This spacious log home can accommodate a large family with over 4,000 sq ft of living space including 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 family rooms, an office, second eating area, 2 extra-feature rooms, a beautiful open gourmet kitchen with loads of cabinets and storage and counter space, plus an extra-large laundry room. The heart of the home (and your first impression when entering) is the monumental stone fireplace framed by multiple windows that reveal the Sangre de Cristo Mountains beyond. This comfortable, sunny room with hickory hardwood floors accented in mosaic tile, opens to the spacious eat-in kitchen. With a lovely half bath for guests and separate log staircases leading upstairs and down, the heart of the home beats with a smooth rhythm. The Master Bedroom and bath are located on the main floor away from the tempo of family life. Roomy and natural-light filled with plenty of closet space, the bath has 2 sinks and a large shower. Three guest bedrooms and a full bath are upstairs and an additional reading/study or office area. The finished walkout basement includes a large office, a home-theatre room, a bedroom and a 3/4 bath. Additional rooms, as yet unclaimed and thereby un-named, are available in the basement. A wrap around deck with post-and-rail finish offers more room for entertaining, dining, star-gazing and mountain viewing. This is a beautiful, open, and friendly home in excellent condition with an attached 3 car garage opening up to a concrete pad for shooting hoops with your friends and family. Plenty of parking around the home for visitor's cars or trucks, and also for your Rocky Mountain toys. Like maybe an RV, a travel trailer, horse trailer, ATV trailer, construction equipment or who knows? But there is plenty of room! Take the driveway on down to the 2,400 sq ft steel barn with 4 Priefert stalls and exterior stall doors leading outside. Horse runs are not there but could be added. More than half of the building is enclosed with a finished concrete floor separate from the horse-stall area. Water and electric are in and once again there is enough room to shoot hoops with your friends and family when weather is inclement. An under-roof, run-in area on the east side of the barn could be used to protect ranch equipment or animals and is ideal for early morning warm sun in winter and weather protection year round. Go another short distance down the driveway and you'll find a large outdoor riding arena just waiting for horse and rider. There is also a detached run-in shed for animals near the barn. Property is fenced and cross-fenced. Water well is a 4 GPM domestic well for watering of livestock and owners have installed a 1500 gallon cistern to store additional water just in case demands are high. This is a fine one-owner property that sellers had built for themselves, and need I say they have a large, rambunctious and talented family?
