$339,000 • 10 acres
The Ridge Haus Retreat consists of 10+/- Acres in a private gated community Boulder Ridge Estates, just north of the Colorado/Wyoming Border approximately 9 miles west of US Hwy 287. The property boasts a 1024+/- SF well maintained cabin with a large deck, firepit, hot tub, kids cabin, and detached garage. The property is located halfway between the vibrant towns of Fort Collins, CO and Laramie, WY being within an hour drive of both towns. Being at an elevation of approximately 8200’-8500’ feet the property can be accessed most of the year via well maintained dirt roads. Close proximity to thousands of acres of Roosevelt National Forest and an additional 20 acres of Boulder Ridge association ground makes this a very desirable recreational paradise with plenty of space for recreational activities.
IMPROVEMENTS: Perhaps the Ridge Haus Retreats greatest asset is a 1024+/- SF 3BR, 1BA Cabin that has been kept in exceptional shape over the years. The amenities in the cabin are three bedrooms two with king beds and one with a queen, a loft with two queen beds, gas fireplace, updated kitchen, and a built-in bar with a beverage refrigerator. The Cabin has a large wood deck with a BBQ area, hot tub, and a gas firepit all in pristine condition. A separate outbuilding with a washer, dryer, and chest freezer is connected to the deck as well, being only a few steps from the cabin. Going uphill behind the main cabin a staircase leads up to a newly constructed kid’s cabin. A quick hike up the road leads to the detached garage/shop and the well house. The well house contains a 300-gallon water tank that is filled by the water well on the property and is gravity fed downhill to the properties residence. This steep downhill grade builds pressure in the water line and makes the water pressure at the cabin ideal. Water quality from the well is exceptional. The property is on grid power and none of the buildings are off-grid. Overall, the improvements on the Ridge Haus Retreat makes the property second-to-none for a small mountain recreational retreat.
LAND AND WILDLIFE: The Ridge Haus Retreat consists of 10+/- Acres of transitional high-country terrain from the expansive prairie to forest land. These transitional areas are oftentimes wildlife magnets due to the overall diversity of plant life and terrain. The acreage on this property is no exception with Lone Tree Creek running north through the west-end of the property and a rising ridgeline of Ponderosa, Lodgepole, and Aspen trees quickly gaining elevation running east. Large rock outcroppings characterize the east end of the property and breathtaking views of the Laramie Valley and Snowy Range Mountains can be had here. Wildlife that inhabit the property are Mule Deer, Elk, Moose, Bears, and a variety of small game species and birds. Lone Tree Creek which runs through the property has good populations of brook and rainbow trout for fishing. Renovated beaver ponds on the creek stocked with trout are just a short hike downhill for fishing.
