Description

Mountain Bird Ranch encompasses approximately 610 acres, with an end-of-the-road location in the awe-inspiring Blanco Basin just 35 minutes southeast of downtown Pagosa Springs. The primary residence was custom-built for the famous singer Dan Fogelberg, who fell in love with the sweeping vistas of this serene location. The ranch consists of towering aspen groves and pine forests, scattered stands of gambol oak, lush open meadows and pastures, beautiful lakes and ponds stocked with trout and bass, and seasonal streams to support horses or cattle and a myriad of wildlife species, including resident herd elk and mule deer. This exceptional property features a 7,568 SF five-bedroom main house with five baths and a 2,994 SF five-bedroom guest house with five baths, both taking advantage of the incredible views of the Continental Divide. The primary residence has been completely remodeled, and the guest house is currently being renovated. Other features include a heated, year-round 12-stall horse barn, indoor riding arena, and a large workshop for equipment and hay storage. This property offers complete privacy in an Alpine-like setting at 8400' to 8920' in elevation, and it is the highest privately owned parcel of land in the Blanco River Basin. The National Forest borders the ranch on three sides, offering a recreational gateway to one of the most beautiful mountain areas in all of southwestern Colorado. In addition, miles of well-designed private roads provide easeful access to most of the property to take advantage of the dramatic views as the sun rises and the sun sets. Approximately 6.75 miles of perimeter fencing, plus one-quarter mile of new interior fencing, surround the property adding designated boundaries to support livestock. The enchanting primary residence reflects gracious Old World living elegant yet cozy and casual. Constructed with entertaining in mind, the home is surrounded by beautiful stamped concrete walkways, lush garden areas, a back deck, an exterior porch, small balconies, and an outdoor patio with a built-in fireplace plus unobstructed views of Square Top Mountain. The new custom victorian style iron railings add a luxury touch and feel to the home's exterior. Enjoy the clear Colorado starry nights with complete privacy and nothing but the sound of nature. This home is an entertainer's dream and includes a stunning chef's kitchen, multiple breakfast nooks, private suites, a formal dining room, sitting areas, and a grand living room with a stacked stone fireplace. In addition, the luxurious and intricate woodwork and stained-glass windows throughout the home provide a unique rustic mountain elegance aesthetic. The flooring consists of new premium 100 oz carpet, imperial red granite tile, Perlis granite tile, inch solid hickory, and oak wood floors. The cabinetry and trim are custom-made using " solid Oak, and the interior wainscotting is solid Douglas fir tongue and groove. The exposed beams and posts in the kitchen are solid Missouri red oak. Subzero, Wolf, and Kitchen Aid appliances; all new in 2017. New unique granite countertop with a "leather" finish on granite. Antique 18th-century European fire-back used between Wolf Range and Vent-a-Hood. Interior and exterior doors are Douglas Fir except for the front entrance, which is Oak. Enjoy soaking in the outdoor hot tub or sitting in the sauna after exploring the surrounding mountains. The property is being sold turnkey, including ranch equipment/vehicles and the furnishings that are a mixture of Dan Fogelberg's original furniture and antiques and the current owner's furniture; much of it is new. Also included are Fogelbergs China dishes, a 90+ bottle wine collection, and a vinyl album collection. Mountain Bird Ranch is a rare opportunity to own a piece of history in a private and pristine setting that glorifies Colorado mountain living at its best!
