3,892 SF newly renovated single level home with 350 feet of Arkansas River frontage located less than 10 minutes from downtown Salida, Colorado. This is a rare find in Chaffee County and some of the best Arkansas River frontage in the valley with no highway noise and level, easily accessible river frontage. Home features an expansive great room with vaulted ceilings, natural wood beams, and a wall of windows looking over the river with the Sawatch Mountain Range as a backdrop. Main living area includes 3 large bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, modern kitchen, pantry, and laundry room. Radiant hot water baseboard heat, woodstove, and heat/cool mini-splits plus hot water in-floor heat in the bathrooms provide multiple options for year round comfort. The attached studio suite with a full bath, office and bonus room provides a second living space for relaxing, entertaining, or a private area for visiting guests. Outdoor living space includes large decks front and rear, enclosed hot tub area, and an observation deck overlooking the river and the massive 360 degree mountain views. The attached garage/shop is massive with a footprint of 40 ft x 68 ft (2,270 SF) including room for 3 to 4 cars in the main section, separate office/workshop, and two large bays with 12 feet doors and loft storage. Plenty of room for your RV, toys, or workshop. The lower river frontage, easily accessible by stairs or gentle path, is literally larger than a football field and the lush green grass and trees is reminiscent of a manicured park. Unobstructed views of the Arkansas River, The Sawatch and Sangre de Cristo Mountains from everywhere on the property, inside and out. 350 feet of calm water creates a private oasis for relaxing, fishing, and easy put in/take out for rafts and kayaks. Year round access on paved roads. Low utilities courtesy of the grid-tied photovoltaic solar installed in 2020 (owned). 40 acre BLM parcel directly across the road for dog walking, etc.
