"Lakeside at Savage Ranch" is a scenic 35-acre property featuring a custom-built 6,300-square-foot lodge-style home, a private lake, two dramatic canyons, abundant wildlife, and private national forest access.The three-level home has four large bedrooms, large, luxurious bathrooms, and a gourmet kitchen featuring granite countertops, a center island (with vegetable sink), and a counter bar. The vast living room (measuring approximately 30x36 feet) has hardwood (birch) flooring and a handcrafted fireplace fashioned from local stone and featuring traces of silver and copper. The living room has a 10-foot ceiling (14 feet at its peak), and two walk-outs: to the 60-foot-long north deck, with its mountain views, and to the zero-maintenance south deck.The large, main-floor master suite has its own gas fireplace, a walkout to the home's south deck, a large en suite master bath, and a 7x11 walk-in closet. The upstairs (which has barely been lived in) has three large bedrooms (the largest approximately 15x20), each with its own room-sized walk-in closet; 9-foot ceilings; and a bathroom that's approximately 170 square feet all on its own. Additional home features include a metal roof, handmade wood doors, custom millwork throughout the home, custom closet cabinetry, directional lighting (ideal for highlighting wall art), dual-pane windows, and a spacious laundry room, complete with a utility sink. The home is equipped with a tankless hot water heater, and has central a/c, with two a/c units. The home's unfinished basement offers space for more bedrooms, living space, and workshop/office space. Basement access to the attached two-car garage adds significant convenience. The property offers an unmatched mix of adventure, tranquility, and privacy. A private, spring-fed lake occupies close to an acre when it's at its fullest, and attracts game and wildlife, including a heron that frequently visits. As the water level rises each year, a peninsula forms, creating a secluded sanctuary. A lakeside RV/trailer hookup site offers a great camping option for guests. (Lake photos and video will be available soon.)Two small canyons on the property feature dramatic rock formations, and carry seasonal creeks that help feed the lake. Hikeable/rideable trails lead from the lake to the property's interior. The western property line directly borders the San Isabel National Forest, with its thousands of acres ready to explore. Forest access is for landowners only; there's no forest access to the general public for many miles; as a result, game and wildlife thrive. Deer and elk are on this property on a near-daily basis. (This area is in Colorado GMU 84.)Approximately 5 acres around the house are already fenced, in part with zero-maintenance vinyl rail. And, there's ample level building space available for a shop or horse barn. Neighboring properties are all at least 35 acres, making for a peaceful, uncrowded environment. This area's well-maintained roads are easily navigable year-round. Keypad-coded, gated access ensures privacy and security. And, underground utilities (power, phone, internet) provide for a clean skyline and unobstructed mountain views.The property is less than 10 miles from the picturesque mountain town of Beulah (pop. 1,400), and under 25 miles to the services and amenities of Pueblo (pop. 110,000), home to a Colorado State University campus, two major hospitals, and numerous cultural events. The Colorado Springs airport is 73 miles north, generally just an 80-minute drive.
