Dennis Weaver’s Eco Ranch & Mountain Retreat

 

The Weavers call it Sunridge! This stunning 20-acre Southwest Colorado Mountain Property takes advantage of the area’s abundant natural solar. The energy-efficient home can be totally off the grid or conventional  Outbuildings, including studio and renovated historic cabin, could be used as guest quarters. Every window offers magnificent San Juan Mountain views. Dennis Weaver’s Eco Ranch & Mountain Retreat includes an apple orchard, cottonwood groves, organic gardens, and water rights — and a river runs through it! With ponds, meadows, and pastures, Weaver’s Eco Ranch is perfect for horses, llamas, or other animals. Sunridge would also make a lovely Mountain Retreat for fishing, hunting, golf, or skiing. The property is close to Telluride Golf & Ski Resort, Ouray Hot Springs, Ridgway State Park which offers boating and swimming, and kayaking, and the Dennis Weaver Memorial Park with miles of scenic trails for hiking and biking. Regional airports at Telluride and Montrose offer easy airport access for both commercial and private aircraft. Click here for area activities.

Key Features include an energy-efficient, sustainably-bult 7,300 s.f. home with two garages and a separate Quiet Room or chapel. The restored historic cabin and studio are both fully equipped and can serve as separate guest quarters. In addition there is a two-story barn, workshop, hay sheds, and greenhouse. The spacious main home has six bedrooms, six bathrooms, two offices, a library or media room, game room, spacious kitchen and dining area, workshop, and a sweeping staircase leading to the dramatic upper floor entrance. The master bedroom features a rock-walled   jaczuzzi tub with views and his and hers walk-in closets. Custom stone, wood, and tile work throughout complement the feeling of open space and light, enhanced by skylights and a wall of south-facing windows looking out toward Ralph Lauren’s ranch and the Sneffels Range. Indoor vegetable and fower gardens beneath the windows range the length of the house, which also includes multiple patios and decks on all levels. Click here to see more of the home’s interior.

The pond is perfect for boating and fishing. The pastures can be home to your horses. The shed is used to store hay, and the historic barn serves as a workshop. The studio can function as a guest house or rental apartment. The greenhouse and garden offer a great opportunity for organic gardening. With its perfect setting, main home with 6 bedrooms and two separate guest quarters, the property would also be suitable for a B&B, wedding venue or corporate retreat.  Click here to see more of the entire property and click here for suggestions of prime use.

There’s more! Because it is in Ouray County, Sunridge’s property taxes are much more affordable than in near-by Telluride, and it has easy, year-round access to shopping, services, and air transport in Montrose, only about 35 miles north. At less than $1 million 5 (reduced from $3 million), Sunridge is also the most affordable large property available in the entire area!
