Professionally remodeled in 2021, this stunning country home located in a beautiful farm and ranchette neighborhood just outside of Hotchkiss Colorado is a one-of-a-kind offering. Originally built in 1909, the home was constructed of massive blocks of quarried stone. The current owners bought the home in 2007 and began a major restoration project. The owner is a well-regarded local remodeling contractor, so he was the perfect man for the job. They added substantially to the footprint of the house and made major mechanical improvements, such as adding a geothermal heating and cooling system.

The field immediately to the west of the home is approximately 4 total acres of high production hay ground. The southern acreage totaling 16 acres is completely high-fenced to keep deer out, and has four pressurized zones of irrigation provided by a sand media filter and irrigation pump.
