Make your plans to come to Ridgway, Colorado and see this grand home located on a one acre Ponderosa covered lot. It was built by one of the top Telluride builders, and you'll find a home featuring many upgraded features, including spacious rooms, quality materials, and clever design. You'll love the oversized covered entry area, with its winding path leading to the grand entrance. Just inside the door is a large 8.5 x 15 foot foyer, which leads into the roomy 17x 22 foot living room, with its actual wood burning fireplace. Gorgeous doors lead out to the partially covered 18x22 foot patio, which is located on the south side of the home, so even winter days the space will be bathed in light. There are three very nicely sized bedrooms, but one of the home's most stately features is two master bedrooms. Most would consider the northwest bedroom the master, as it's slightly larger and has an amazingly appointed master bath-walk in tiled shower with double heads and a large 11x12 fully outfitted walk in closet. The other master is just slightly smaller, but offers not just an other walk in double headed shower, but also a deep soaking tub to enjoy after hiking the trails of the Ouray County area. The kitchen is extremely well outfitted, with a wealth of high end cabinetry, and stainless appliances, which include the refrigerator, dishwasher, stove top, and microwave-as well as double ovens. There's a tremendous set of storage spaces that you'll notice along its north end, which is a perfect pantry area. This is adjacent to the 3rd bedroom, located between the foyer and the kitchen.  While it doesn't have a private bath, it's nicely sized and has good storage and lovely views out the front windows. This may become a type of 'flex' room too if the third bedroom isn't needed. It would be an excellent office or workout room, media room, craft room or library. And it's sized to allow you to use it for your special purpose, but also be a great place for guest. The dining area for Bear Cub is located on the south end of the kitchen area, and doors spill out from the dining area onto the previously mentioned patio on the south side of the home. What a great layout for entertaining! Between the kitchen and the entrance into the garage is a very comfortable laundry area that is 10x11 and has a half bath along its north side. The washer and dryer will stay-and there's a good laundry sink too. The garage area is very nice and oversized. There are actually three bays, two used as a standard garage, and is roughly 25x25 and has good storage around the perimeter. There's an additional smaller garage door that opens to the third bay, which has been exclusively used as a wood workshop. It's another 325 sq ft-13x25, and could be a perfect spot for your golf cart, RV's, outdoor gear or of course your woodworking shop! The heating system is among the best you'll find, with high quality boiler and side arm, which provides not just home heating but also hot water. All is integrated into the same system, keeping your heating bills down The sellers brought natural gas to the home when it was made available, so no need to worry about whether the propane truck will arrive when you're gone. The home has metal tile roof, which is not just beautiful, but also sensible. There's quality stone work integrated into key locations, and the home has been fully landscaped with natural stone and decorative patio areas and walkways. This is a great year round home, but would also work as a summer retreat, a weekend escape or even a rental. The price point is sensible compared to other Ridgway Divide Ranch homes, and interest rates are as low as we've ever seen. So it's time to make this lovely Divide Ranch mountain home your next special place!
