This property has access by private road to state land and is very close to National Forest where you can find some of the best big game hunting, snowmobiling, hiking, trout fishing, and more. The Jelm Riverfront Mansion would be perfectly suited for a retreat or a family vacation home.
The Mansion: The 9,000 square foot main house was updated in 2004 and has been extremely well maintained by the current owners. It is currently being used as their residence and is also rented out on an occasional basis for periodic income. The highlights of the magnificent home are its eight bedrooms (with additional sleeping space beyond this), a large Horseshoe kitchen that opens up to the dining room and sitting room, the distressed hickory wood floors and cabinets, the gorgeous hand hewn beams, and the ample amounts of storage that has been added to the home including a walk-in pantry. The Mansion also has custom hand-made hand rails throughout the home and a timeless river rock fireplace. The 3,000 square foot walk-out basement has an open concept and adds a spot for additional laundry, a wet bar, and much more.
The Ranch Style Home: The second home on the property would be perfect to live out of while managing the mansion or would be a nice rental to have some extra income. It is 1,540 square feet, 2 bed/1 bath, and has a 1 1/2 car garage. This home has been recently updated with new windows, a new furnace, and all new plumbing. There is a deck on the south side of this home that boasts some of the best views of the Snowy Range Mountains.
Outbuildings: The Mansion has an attached 3-car garage that is all insulated and has one 14-foot door for RV's, campers, or trailers. The other 2 doors are 8 foot. There is also an additional 1 car garage on the back side of the home. The ranch style home has an attached 1 1/2 car garage. The only other outbuilding on the property is a small chicken coop currently used by the renters.
Utilities: The Mansion is mainly heated by hot water heat. In addition, there are 5 gas fireplaces (natural gas) in the home, and 1 wood fireplace. Each room has its own thermostat to keep them nice and cozy! The ranch style home is heated by a natural-gas fueled furnace. The property has a 119 ft well that is permitted for commercial use and that provides for both homes, and 2 other wells for livestock. There are also 2 private septic tanks.
Wildlife and Recreation: The Jelm Riverfront Mansion is smack-dab in the middle of some of the best year-round recreational opportunities. From skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, big game hunting, horseback riding, and camping, the Medicine Bow National Forest offers miles of trails and thousands of acres of public land. The Laramie River that runs through the property is one of the main tributaries of the North Platte River and offers awesome opportunities for trout fishing. The owners are going to miss seeing big deer and moose on their property.
