$825,000 • 38.3 acres
Mountain Top at Dome Rock was built to maximize both privacy and surrounding views. Constructed by the owner/contractor, the end-of-the road and up top placement provides views of Dome Rock within the Dome Rock Wildlife Management Area (W.M.A.), the Four Mile Creek valley and several outlying mountain ranges. The 38.3-acre property is directly adjoined on the north, east and south by larger acreage private ranches that have been placed in conservation. Immediately adjacent to these ranches are the Dome Rock W.M.A. and Mueller State Park public lands that combine to total for approximately 12,000-acres. The Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument just to the north contains an additional 6,000-acres of public lands (see links below). Current ownership maintains a verbal agreement with the parcel owner to the north granting walk-in access to the Dome Rock W.M.A. The topography of the Dome Rock W.M.A. supports one of Colorado's largest populations of big horn sheep, which are frequently viewed scaling the rocks and roaming the hillsides. Good numbers of trophy elk and mule deer move through the property, with occasional whitetail, black bear, mountain lion and turkey sightings. Detailed information can be provided regarding big game hunting availability and requirements in management unit 581 and from the subject property.Land:The larger tract consists of two contiguous parcels totaling for 38.3-acres. The large parcel at 36.0-acres increases in elevation from the main entrance. As shown on the provided maps, the log residence was placed in the far northeast corner of the tract in maximizing views and open space areas. Topography consists of various rock formations, native grass meadows and pine and aspen tree-lined draws that serve to attract wildlife. The smaller parcel of 2.3-acres is situated at the entrance to the larger property off-of Navajo Trail. As a separately platted parcel, an owner would have the option to keep the lot and metal shop building attached to the larger tract or sell the 2.3-acres to a third-party as a separately developable homesite.Improvements:The well-maintained log home was constructed in 2006 by the owner, an experienced log home building contractor to the area. It totals for approximately 3,032 total square feet and consists of a ranch design with garden-level basement and attached two-car garage. The main level floorplan contains the master suite with five-piece custom bathroom, additional half-bathroom, living room with large stone fireplace and woodstove, kitchen and laundry room. There are two decks, accessed from the master suite and kitchen/dining room that provide perfect gathering areas for enjoying the unique views. The lower-level plan includes three bedrooms, full bathroom, living/recreation room with wet bar, mechanical room and storage. The fourth bedroom contains a large walk-in closet (current use is an office with adjoining workshop/craft room). Electricity is provided via recently upgraded solar panels and a newly installed fully-redundant back-up generator.A 36' x 48' (1,728 SF) shop building was also constructed in 2006 on the lower parcel. The over-sized 12' x 14' overhead door will accommodate storage of the largest of RV's (including diesel pushers) with abundant remaining space for toys and other equipment. Located just 25-minutes from the city of Woodland Park and less than one-hour from Colorado Springs, this is a must-see Colorado home providing one-of-a-kind views and privacy.
