Welcome to Casa Dorado – your Mission Styled Colorado Mountain Home…. Privately tucked away in the tall pines of Alpine Lakes Ranch. Great room features a double-sided river rock fireplace surrounded by red oak floors, tall windows for natural light and open living spaces. Lots of great areas for multiple home offices, library, theater room, maker spaces and more. Stunning glass atrium with fireplace allows views for as far as the eye can see all the way into the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) acreage. This spot is perfect for relaxing and waiting for the Elk, Deer and occasional Bobcat to stroll by or perhaps a Bald Eagle to land in the high treetops. Rooms currently used as hobby rooms and dens could easily be converted to additional bedrooms. Main floor master features its own private deck entrance to slip out to the large hot tub to wind down for the night. Guest bedrooms on opposite side of the home allow privacy for family and friends. Head upstairs to nearly 1,000 square feet of finished space just waiting for a new creative owner to make it their own. This space is ready with Twin Sized bunk area benches with storage below. This room would easily accommodate a transition to private bedrooms, guest apartment or the most amazing game and theater room you can imagine. It’s finished off as one great big room with lots of light but could easily be repurposed to a variety of uses. Plenty of covered and open decks allow the opportunity to bask in the warm Colorado sun or take a bit of cover when the afternoon rains come in. The land lends itself to multiple options including a cleared area for a barn, stable, guest house, RV storage, mountain toy garage, workshop or archery range. Oversized garage perfect for a workshop, storage everywhere you look inside the home and garage. This property would certainly lend itself to a “Guest Apartment” and perfectly suitable for multi-generational living. Located in Alpine Lakes Ranch; an area encompassing 8600-acres of larger ranch parcels, this expansive ranch community is about 20 miles south of Pagosa Springs.

Parcels are 35+ acres with a variety of terrain. Altitude ranges from 7000 feet to about 8500 feet. The POA leases the ranch for cattle grazing so participating property owners enjoy the tax advantage of Agricultural status.

Wells are managed by the Alpine Lakes Ranch Water Company, which is owned by the property owners. The owner of this home is the current President of the, water company. Electric is underground. The San Juan National Forest is less than a mile away where you can enjoy 2.5 million acres of hiking, biking, 4-wheeling, hunting and more. Schedule your tour today!
