Property Description

Donna M Whiskeman, RE/MAX Cimarron Realty, Cell: 970-729-0273,, It’s morning. The sun has just exploded over the mountain. Whitehouse Peak is bathed in light, the lake is quiet, the birds are singing & you are enjoying it all, along with your first cup of coffee, on the deck. The absolutely stunning setting at the end of the road & overlooking Lake Lenore is one of a kind. The house sits on a sunny ridge surrounded on three sides by a 64 acre greenbelt that is home to Big Horn Sheep, Deer, Fox, Lynx, Turkeys & a dense forest of Douglas Fir and Aspen. The south side borders Dexter Creek. The “taken down to the studs” renovation in 2008 saw the main level redone with a beautifully laid out kitchen complete with unique stonework, Alder cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless appliances & a view of Whitehouse from the kitchen sink that makes doing dishes a joy! There is a warm inviting dining area & an open great room made more charming by its hand troweled walls, wood flooring & stone fireplace housing a thermostatically controlled pellet stove. This level also includes the office with its promontory window and sweeping view in three directions, the huge master suite and elegant bath with double vanities, a full tile shower, a jetted tub and two walk-in closets. The spacious and extremely functional laundry room, one additional bedroom and bath complete the main floor. The lower level was also renovated into two other spacious bedrooms with walk outs and a beautiful bath. Accented with vaulted ceilings, oak flooring, tile tub and shower surrounds and floors, custom ironwork and many rustic touches, this is one of the most charming, warm homes you will ever see. The exterior was redone in 2019 with Alpine insulation and metal siding along with other significant upgrades. Maintenance is not an issue! The two-car garage is oversized and the always needed storage space upstairs as well as an alcove for all the “toys”. Attached is a 15’x25’ workshop, every man’s dream and ready to accept a woodstove to make completing winter projects comfortable. The home is offered furnished except for a few treasured pieces. Added to this spectacular house and setting is the community of Lake Lenore itself. There are 26 leasehold homesites, many of which have been in the family for generations. Owners each have a 1/26th membership in the 180 acre Conservancy which includes the private 15 acre lake, home to a healthy rainbow trout population and wonderful for boating; a gazebo perfect for lakeside grilling and entertaining, numerous hiking trails and a property tax structure that has you paying taxes only on your home and out buildings. Land taxes are paid by the Lake Lenore Company which also holds significant water rights for the entire community. Your investment is protected as no commercial activity is allowed which also includes NO short term rentals. The Lake Lenore location offers ideal accessibility: 5 minutes to Hwy. 550, 10 minutes to the Ouray Hot Springs Pool, 15 minutes to Ridgway & all it has to offer. Montrose, with its airport, stores, shops, medical resources and numerous restaurants, is a scenic 45 minute drive. It’s evening. The sun is setting over Whitehouse Peak painting the landscape with Alpenglow, the birds are quiet, the lake is still, the rainbow trout you caught this afternoon is in the kitchen ready to be cooked for dinner, Dexter Creek is babbling and the glass of wine you are enjoying on the deck signals the end of a perfect day. Life is Good!
