The Sangre De Cristo Mountains rise majestically to the east of this lovely home surrounded by beauty of nature all year. In the mornings, watch sunrays spill over the mountains and run across the valley floor. In winter sunlight flaming like torches on the snow capped peaks will take your breath away. The summer sun softens the forested slopes to velvety green. This home is warm and inviting in the winter, the perfect place for a hot cocoa after a frosty walk or building snowmen. In the summer it is a cool oasis with established landscaping, strawberries and other food plants. In the front a patch of vibrant russian sage erupts into riots of purple flowers in late summer, filled with the contented hum of bees. Irises and wildflowers provide color throughout the growing season. Hummingbirds, and other birds are calming yet fascinating. Fence lizards make friendly neighbors, as they scamper around and hide in the rocks. The single story open plan interior is flexible and practical, ready to be made your own. Two ample bedrooms on opposite sides of the house suit those who love the morning sun and those who revel in the stunning valley sunsets, scarlet orange and purple stretching across the vast mountain sky fading into a midnight expanse of star drenched heavens. The Milky Way arches luminously across the inky dome clearly visible from this international dark skies community. A third room makes a great office or third bedroom. Two full bathrooms mean you'll never have to wait. This house is adaptable and welcoming, waiting to be your home and sanctuary. The lot backs onto greenspace and the area provides a variety of beautiful walks. The community is surrounded by National Park, Wildlife Preserve and several natural hot springs for exploring and outdoor activities. A short drive to the charming town of Crestone, offers restaurants, art gallery, groceries, gas, and more. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
