Private house on 10 acres, off the beaten path but with easy access to 285. Super quiet and private. Lots of wildlife seen everyday. Heated by wood stove, cooled by fresh mountain air. Lots of great outdoor activities nearby. NON SMOKING
The house is a simple home on 10 acres, it was built in 1979 by a man who was "earth friendly". When you first walk into the home you will see his unique passive solar heating system. The main floor has large windows which show off an amazing southern view and on clear days you can see Pike's Peak off in the distance.
There are no fences on our property, you will see lots of wildlife, deer, fox, rabbits, birds, humming birds, wild turkeys, occasional black bears, raccoons, mountain lions and the neighborhood dogs Blue and Zeek. Blue and Zeek stop by very often, they are both very friendly to people, other dogs and children. Blue is a bit intimidating looking, he is a 90lb black pit bull who "smiles' when he comes to say hi. We've found them both to be very friendly to all people and animals.
The house does have satellite wifi with a very limited amount of bandwidth, we use this to make internet based calls, imessaging, (website hidden) messenger, (website hidden) or for simple web searching/(website hidden). If you are hoping to video stream this internet connection is not for you. When the data limit is reached for the month, it is throttled back to dial-up speeds. Because of this we do not guarantee the wifi will work when you visit.
There is no landline at the property and cell phone reception varies from company to company. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. The property is right on the edge of coverage area for most providers.
NO SMOKING in the house.
House broken dogs are allowed.
