26 River Bend Court Antonito CO Real Estate

After driving down the Aspen-lined drive dissecting this 1.40 acre riverfront lot, you will enter this 3,334 sq. ft. mountain/river retreat through a custom-made Taos door. Walking directly into the great room, your attention will immediately be drawn to the 20-foot vaulted ceiling and three-levels of windows, the large, yellow pine, exposed logs and the diverse lighting fixtures that give this cabin both a rustic and urban feel. The great room is divided into two seating areas featuring built in book cases on one side and a 20-foot stone, wood-burning fireplace on the other. Sliding glass doors open onto the patio only steps away from the gold-medal quality water of the Conejos River. The open kitchen is a chef's dream, featuring granite counter tops; Wolf and Viking appliances; a hammered-copper, apron main sink and a second copper vegetable sink; a beer/wine under-the counter-fridge; a walk-in pantry and ample above- and below-the counter cabinet storage. The downstairs features stained-concrete floors that encase radiant heating for a quiet, warm and dust free environment. At one end of the first level, there are two bedrooms with a Jack-and-Jill bath. One of the bedrooms opens to the back patio and the sights and sounds of the flowing river. The other end of the first level features a separate dining area with two sets of sliding glass doors; one set opening out to the patio that runs the length of the home; and the other set that opens to the unique Outdoor Room with a wood-burning Kiva fireplace, chandelier, log siding and remote sound system (this room is not included in the total square footage calculation). The first level also includes a powder bath, a separate laundry room, utility pantry and mud room with four storage lockers for your outerwear. The double-car garage is attached. At the top of the open-log staircase you will find a reading nook and loft study with built in bookcases. As you cross the wood floors of the catwalk, featuring custom, mountain-themed metal artwork, you will notice how quiet and solid the upstairs floors feel. They are also poured concrete with embedded radiant heating. The master suite at the end of the catwalk features a vaulted ceiling, exposed logs, Jetta bathtub, a steam shower, walk-in closet and a balcony over-looking the river. A solid wall of windows opens out to the Aspen and pine forests of the San Juan Mountains. A fourth bedroom is off the other end of the catwalk between the reading nook and study. This one-of-a-kind river home has many other features including central vacuum throughout; four-zone remote sound system (master bedroom, great room, Outdoor Room and back patio) that can play three different music choices simultaneously; roof heating wire on the north side of the home; telephone remote-controlled heating and security system; 500-gallon buried propane tank and buried electrical service. At 8,650 feet elevation, this gated community enjoys snowy winters and humidity-free, 75 degree summers with stunning 360-degree, panoramic views of the fall Aspen color change. If you are a discerning buyer who is seeking a home that was designed to be lived in year-round, do not miss your chance to see this property. (Note: there is no For Sale sign on the property).
