Whispering Pines – a classy, secluded 6,000+sf custom log home, with barn and garage, nestled on 75 private acres (and add 37 acres for the adjacent BLM piece), in the quiet whispers of abundant Ponderosa Pines. While in a private setting, it is just off the paved road for easy year-round access. The newly updated (2020) 4 bedroom, 3 ½ bathroom main house offers cozy spaces and larger gathering areas. The great room faces due south to capture all day views of Lone Cone Mountain directly to the south, east to San Juan Mountains (and the slopes of Telluride), and fantastic sunsets over the LaSal Mountains to the west. Oversized windows everywhere maximize views with the daily sunrises, evening “Serengeti” light and vibrant sunsets.
Enjoy your views and company while preparing delicacies in the gourmet kitchen with a large island open to the great room, granite countertops and GE Monogram appliances. There is a lower level living area/games room with a full bar area, a soundproof media room, and a gorgeous new oversized deck. The equestrian will enjoy the 2,200sf (concrete – with padded stalls) 4-stall barn, 2 corrals, riding paths and property fencing. The 3 bay log and rusted metal garage provides ample storage for vehicles and sports equipment.
