Description

Are you looking for an incredible recreational getaway home? This is remote, yet relatively easy to access. This one of a kind home and property sit on an 8.9 acre mining claim in the heart of La Plata canyon- 3 miles behind the Mayday Forest Service gate, but only a 1/4 mile off of the maintained county road. The parcel is completely surrounded by Forest Service, and Bedrock Creek flows right through the middle of the property. Wildlife, including bighorn, deer, elk and bear frequent regularly. This area is a recreational wonderland and you can hunt elk from your front door! The location offers immediate access to hiking, fishing, hunting, biking, ATVing, back country skiing, gold prospecting and crystal hunting. At over 1800 square feet, the spacious 2 bedroom/2 bath home has room to spread out, with large decks and patios overlooking your own private wilderness. Although partially underground, the home is very light and bright due to the large front windows that face east. The home is completely off grid and powered by PV and propane-- but nonetheless has all of the conveniences of any other home, including internet and Direct TV. The owner has a 10 Kw PV solar system in place. There are also 2) 1000 gallon buried propane tanks that the seller owns and will transfer with the sale. There is a legal well which is approximately 100 feet deep. There is a legal septic on the property sized for the 2 bedroom home. There are security shutters and screens that allow the owner to lock this property down when it is vacant. Because the home is partially underground, it is very efficient and easy to heat (and to cool) with a propane heater and a woodstove . There is some work to do on the second bathroom, which has been gutted but with the plumbing and wiring are in place. There is a hard rock mine on the parcel that has produced gold ore in the past - and the mine is still open to explore. Experience the feeling of living in a remote area, with the convenience of an easy location - it is only 15 minutes to Kennebec Restaurant, Hesperus Ski Area, a gas station and the Hesperus Post Office. The owner has the key/access code to the Forest Service gate in the winter to access the property via snowmobile or ATV. The owner has lived several winters in the property, and there are other residents that live year round past the Forest Service gate at Mayday. There are peek a boo views of the surrounding mountain peaks, and the creek will lull you to sleep as it rushes alongside the home. Follow the creek down to Bedrock Creek waterfall. Come experience this unique and thoughtfully planned property imbedded in all that Nature has to offer! Easy to show. Brand new water heater 5/25/21
