Property Description

$400,000 Price Reduction!!! The River House on Danni Ranch is a hidden treasure possessing all the beauty and majesty that Colorado has to offer; a recreational wonderland throughout all seasons of the year. In the summer, step outside the door of the magnificent log home to relish in world-class fishing on the East River or saddle your horse to ride out your gate through millions of acres of the surrounding Gunnison National Forest. With an abundance of aspen groves, the fall is breathtaking to take a hike through the historic Danni Ranch where large herds of elk roam the hills. In the winter, a short fifteen-minute trip up the mountain presents exceptional downhill and Nordic skiing or ice skate on the lake just steps from your fence line. On sunny spring days, take a bike ride through the lower mountains or jump in an ATV to watch the beauty of the season unfold among the endless array of trails. These incomparable opportunities are a significant and rare gem to be realized in a single property. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; once you see it, youll be hooked.

This spectacular estate is hidden among the cottonwoods along the East River making it extremely private, yet only 12 minutes to the quaint town or Crested Butte. Being one of 19 homesites in the historic Danni Ranch gated community, it enjoys access to the 800 feet of East River that traverses the property along with an additional 700 feet of improved fish habitat in the river that is part of the ranch. The impressive log home brings together old and new with its marvelous character and elegant updates. The great room is quintessential mountain living with a fabulous 2-sided rock fireplace, massive log beams and soaring ceilings. Entertaining is ideal with a wonderfully open floor plan and enough space to easily sleep up to 16 guests. An impressive screened porch sits along side the river, a darling guest house allows for those guests that want to stay a bit longer, and a beautifully designed stable with garage space and a shop allow for all of your hobbies. All of this on 35 acres of fenced and cross-fenced lush meadows ideally situated between the flowing river and the towering mountains. It doesnt get any better than this.
