River and Mountains Abound!
Endless possibility on this 5 acre river estate in the center of Colorado surrounded by the most spectacular mountain vistas anywhere. This unique property sitting on the banks of the Arkansas River includes a historic 3-story brick Victorian house (listed on National Historic Register and currently used as B&B), separate 1,301 sf cottage, a historic barn with opportunities for expansion and deeded water rights. Extensive updates in 2003 included remodel/redecorating of the 6 bedrooms & 6 bathrooms of the brick house, landscaping on the immediate acres surrounding the houses and redecorating of the 3-bedroom/1 bath cottage. This property would continue to work successfully as a Bed & Breakfast or other possible uses: corporate, artist or family retreat; base camp for fishing, rafting, hunting, biking, skiing, or other 4-season outfitters; cooking school; art school; or horse property. This property is limited only by your imagination. Located just 3.5 miles from historic downtown Salida.
The secret is out… Salida is located in the center of Colorado surrounded by 14,000 ft mountains and is a hot-bed of mountain biking, skiing, fly-fishing, kayaking/rafting, hot springs, arts/culture and numerous other recreational opportunities. Two hours from Denver and Colorado Springs, Salida was recently featured in US News as top ten retirement community in nation. Salida has also been featured in Outside Magazine as top 10 best place to live, work and play. Other notable mentions are Esquire, Men's Journal, Home and Garden Network, 50 best Art Towns in US, CO Real Estate Journal, and repeatedly in Denver Post/Rocky Mountain News. Salida's downtown historic district has enjoyed a rebirth of development over the past few years and has become home to a large and still growing artist community. A new $36M hospital was recently completed. Plans are underway for two new 18-hole golf courses, and master development plans exist for the new 200 acre Vandaveer Ranch development on the east edge of town. Salida’s 4-season climate and 300+ days of sunshine p/yr support its ”Banana Belt” nickname; a perfect destination for families, sports enthusiasts, and residents alike.
