Bernadette Stech, Paonia Realty, 970-261-5928, email@example.com, www.paoniarealty.com: On beautiful Pitkin Mesa just 5 minutes from the town of Paonia, CO., is a striking 1917 two story farm house. One of the most private properties in the area, you access your home via a long gravel driveway. You pass through an 8ft swinging gate, and then on past the hayfield with big mountain views. The home is located on the SE corner, the most secluded spot on the property. As you walk the grounds, one thing you won t notice is neighbors. Surrounded by trees, including three towering pines that must rise at least 120 vertical ft, it is an idyllic private country setting. A covered porch surrounds the South and East sides of the house, facing beautiful mountain and valley views. The rolling farmland in the distance makes it feel like Tuscany or something you would see in Provence. The home has been completely renovated to maintain the farmhouse feel but upgraded with modern conveniences. The interior style is rustic French country. Three downstairs rooms have natural plaster walls and ceilings with classic French colors. There is a roomy gourmet kitchen with a commercial Viking stove, and a Viking Range Hood, strong enough for indoor grilling. Beautiful custom cabinets are covered with Italian Carrara marble, Black soapstone, and a massive rare Beech wood counter, custom built and salvaged from a Pennsylvania barn. Five windows and two glass doors brighten the adjacent breakfast nook. The living/dining room runs the entire width of the house and has a working fireplace with pillared mantle. There are two bedrooms downstairs, one with a private entrance and its own small covered porch. Upstairs are three bedrooms and two full baths, including a private master suite with an office/den and balcony. Outside are many patios, porches and decks, wrought iron railings, a gazebo, one-car garage/shop, and a new chicken coop. There is a huge raised-bed vegetable garden with over 20 large raised beds. Nearby is a mature asparagus patch, large patches of raspberries, blackberries, and a small orchard with cherry, apple, peach, nectarine, plum, and almond trees. Peonies and flower gardens abound. Plenty of irrigation water from Fire Mountain Ditch takes care of the hayfields. An irrigation pump and an underground sprinkler system takes care of the gardens and the grounds around the house. A classic old barn stands alone with outdoor hay storage and semi-finished interior space with power and a wood burning stove for heat. There's a bonus building separate from the main residence, which is heated, nicely finished and set up as a workout room and family home theater. This is a one of a kind property. The chance of a lifetime. The 4.3 acres bordering the west side of this property is also for sale. Combined price for both parcels is $875,000.
