THE GUEST HOUSE: The Main house conversion into an Airbnb in 2018 has been very successful. As the Guests arrive, their mouths prop agape as they see the grandeur of their accommodations. Hundreds of the post-stay reviews attest to the relaxation and peacefulness the property offers. They love hearing the steam train whistle echoing between the cliffs! Their 'private space mostly faces away from the Owner-occupied Loft, so there's not a sense of personal space crowding. The 2007 Constructed LOFT: From the vaulted ceilings in the Great Room, exit thru double sliding doors to the East facing deck that overlooks the Animas Valley and Red Rock Cliffs. Suspended from this amazing deck are the steel supports for the 17 flower plantersself-maintained by drip irrigation. The explosion of flower color, along with the red and tan cliffs in the background will be the scene of many BBQ's with family & friends. This open concept floor plan with separate bedroom and office is designed for two to enjoy working from home. Exit the West facing bedroom, and step onto the porch featuring a delightful pergola with mature flowering vines. Slide into the hot tub and admire the colorful cliffs that are directly behind you.

The adjacent four car garage has 2 floor drains to keep things tidy. The boiler supplies the in-slab heat for the garage, as well as the Loft upstairs. The entire garage space is also humidified, in order to keep your RV/vehicles upholstery and rubber parts from deteriorating. Many cabinets and benches will convey. The entire foundation was overbuilt, over insulated, and over protected against water migration.
