Fantastic horse property for the serious amateur or professional. You can work all year long in this place because of the 70’ x 140’ indoor riding arena! Only minutes from Delta on paved roads, with a well maintained gravel driveway. All aspects of this property have been carefully thought out, from the well constructed and heavily insulated home to the arena building with its’ many uses and storage options. Great views all around, and you don’t have to climb up a mountain to see them!
Ranch style, single level home with unfinished basement. Three separate covered porches, two in front and one on back side of the house. Front door porch has RealStone covered pillars. Exterior is traditional stucco with synthetic top coat and shingled roof. Insulation is closed cell, blown foam. LED light bulbs installed in most light fixtures. Living room, master and third bedrooms have in-ceiling speakers installed for tv sound. Heating by ComfortCove radiant heaters and two propane fireplaces. Evaporative cooler on roof. Apartment and home each have Marathon hot water heaters. Domestic and well water available.
Fully finished garage w/ bench, partially lined with PolyMax boards, two 12' doors and dog door.
Open concept kitchen and living room areas. Kitchen has Hickory cabinets and laminate flooring. Home has laminate, carpet and vinyl flooring. The bedroom doors are a beautiful, glossy Alder wood, and there are Alder window sills in the living room area. Stairs down to the basement are at the edge of the kitchen/dining area. Mendota fireplace in living room has a sparkling RealStone border around it, which really sets off the room nicely. Master bedroom also has a small, wall-mounted Lopi fireplace as well. Large, walk in pantry with lots of shelves. Big laundry room with utility sink, clothes hanger and storage cabinet. The two smaller bedrooms have walk-in closets and share a full bathroom. Master bedroom has a large, walk in closet, garden viewing area with door to the garden porch, bathroom with two sinks and a large walk in shower that has a shower head at each end. All appliances inside the home and barn apartment will stay with the property (exception is the freezer in the garage).
Backyard garden has three planter areas with sidewalks around them, fenced with chain link. Between the house and garden is a fenced area with pea gravel, which is used as a dog pen. Basement is unfinished, but offers lots of storage space.
The arena building serves various needs, and has two frost free hydrants (one at NW corner of building, one at SW corner of indoor arena). South Side: Graveled open equipment storage with 220 electric outlet for vehicle or trailer storage, open on east end (24' W X 40' D). For company or farm help, the building has a finished 1BR/1BA apartment with full kitchen on the south side of the building. There is also an unheated, 320sf living area directly adjacent to apartment door. Fully finished/heated tack room (480sf). Finished carport/wash rack area (414sf) with access to hot/cold water from the apartment. Enclosed equipment area (20' X 12'), which backs up to a large foaling stall that adjoins indoor arena area. The large indoor riding arena (70’x140’) comprises the central part of the building, and has wood chip footing and 3 rail welded pipe fence. The north side of the building is comprised of an open, roofed hay and equipment storage area (24' D X 140' L).
Five large, outdoor horse pens, each with a run-in shed, a small 6th pen has panel fence. Two pens have Richie automatic waterers, pipe/electric/horse fencing, and a frame built 3-sided horse shed on a concrete footing. The 3 horse pens on the north side have well water from 2 separate frost free hydrants, with access to electric outlets at the same locations. Steel frame sheds are 12'x12' and 12'x36'. Wood frame sheds are (14’W X 14.5’D).
The 15 acres of grass/alfalfa fields up front have produced up to 3,000 small bales in a year. Watering of the irrigated hay fields and other "irrigated" tree/grass areas is accomplished via an underground pipeline (which brings water from the two ditches for the property). Two ditches (one piped) serve the property, and the water travels throughout the property via an underground pipe system. I have compiled a book describing the whole irrigation system, complete with photos, so you’ll know how everything operates.
The property is only 15 minutes away from Delta, on county roads, and an hour to 1 hr 15 minutes away from towns with airports (Montrose or Grand Junction). Convenience, landscaping and a well thought out horse operation make this property very desirable . Views of the Grand Mesa, West Elks and San Juan Mountains make this a peaceful and serene setting.
