The WayUpHigh Ranch offers tremendous recreation and seclusion for those who want to live in a gorgeous mountain paradise. A beautiful log home along with a large barn, detached garage & greenhouse all complete this property. The custom, full-scribe 2+ bedrooms/1.5 bath log home is handcrafted with massive Douglas Fir log trusses & beam work throughout with an unfinished walkout basement adding an additional 1140 sf of potential living area. This unique 40-acre property of aspens, pines, and wildflowers is situated on a knoll bordering national forest with outstanding views of the Fossil Ridge Wilderness Area and surrounding mountain ranges. Located in the middle of GMU 55, this property offers excellent hunting opportunities for both elk & trophy deer. There are miles and miles of 4x4 trails to explore without the public congestion of other areas. Ride to Almont for dinner, to the Taylor river for fishing, or simply enjoy yourself in the backcountry beauty viewing the abundant wildlife. Great horse setup with power to the barn, an automatic horse waterer & horse-safe smooth wire perimeter fencing on entire property. Imagine being totally self-sufficient with no HOA covenants! Seasonal access by car, winter access by snowmobile, tracked vehicles, or other OHV. Potential location near the home for a helicopter landing. Close to both Crested Butte and Gunnison, this property can easily work as a hunting retreat, corporate getaway or even a year-round home! Listing Agent must be present for all showings.
