Welcome to the southwest quadrant of the Western Slope of Colorado, with 300 days of sunshine, green valleys, vistas of 14,000’ mountain peaks, and the “Cowboy Way” of living. The Baker Farm in Montrose sits at an ideal 6000’ altitude, and is a peaceful oasis in the middle of ranch country with easy access to skiing in Telluride, National Parks, an all-weather airport, and the essentials of life and business, in Montrose and Grand Junction. ALL the enlivening outdoor recreation one can imagine, from rivers to mountains, and western deserts are at your footsteps enabling a vibrant active lifestyle.
The Baker Farm on 43.5 acres, more specifically, holds a gracious 4-bedroom family home, a comfortable and well-maintained Barn Master stable for horses, as well as a 4800 sqft storage barn, and hay pastures crossed fenced with run-in sheds for your various ”‘best friends”. Many, many trees have been planted on these lands by the current owners to develop shady pockets of inviting rest stops to sit and enjoy the 360-degree views.
The property development was inspired by a family history of winemaking in Napa Valley California. For an aspiring farmer, or an amateur with organic aspirations, there are two greenhouses, with irrigations pipes, and a pressurized water system supplied by 32.4 shares of UVUWA water, as well as two water and sewer taps, with the ability for a self-sustaining existence, or a bounty to share.
Of particular charm, is a private horseshoe swimming pond, fronted by a large natural rock patio, and bordered by Dolores Creek. The chicken shed is well built and fenced, protecting the whole backyard for your pets to freely roam.
A broad 300 X 225 riding arena, surrounded by hay fields, is ideal for the year-round riding of any equestrian discipline. The direct BLM access gate to the West Canal & Sims Mesa provides miles of trails through the neighboring ranch lands and mesas.
The neighbor’s 39 acres are also potentially available with 32+ more shares of water for additional water rights, pastures, and privacy.
Agricultural Zoning and reasonable county regulations allow for a variety of uses, including weddings, vacation rentals, or all kinds of hobbies or home businesses.
Tranquil and nurturing surroundings are awaiting those wanting to combine a balanced lifestyle with an industrious pioneering spirit, and self-sustaining reality.
