Historic Downtown Pagosa Springs Home overlooking the San Juan River with views all the way to Wolf Creek! This is the original Hersch family residence dating back to 1903 (the Hersch's founded Hersch Mercantile, now Goodman’s Department Store). Located on 5 city lots with completely unblockable views of the San Juan River, the Pagosa Hot Springs, the east range of the San Juan Mountains all the way to Wolf Creek! Also includes a 4-plex apartment that hasn’t seen a vacancy in 26 years! Enjoy PHENOMINAL VIEWS while the apartments help make your payment. Massive Pines and Spruce provide privacy for the main home along with over 75 lilac bushes! The owner has meticulously kept the lawn (and home) as well as gardens, patios and various walk ways throughout the property. Although you are in town, you will feel like you are in your own little private forest. Workshop, garden shed, toy garage and greenhouse for the “maker” or hobbyist. Inside the main home, you will find gorgeous oak hardwood floors as well as Blue Beetle Kill Pine ceilings giving this the true Colorado rustic lodge feel. Large, newly remodeled kitchen with multiple workspaces, new convection oven, and gas cooktop as well as “dining with a big, big view” – inside or out on the large covered deck. Newly renovated bathrooms in the main home also provide a view to the mountains. Did someone say “PARTY”?? Gotcha covered in a BIG way here! Above the garage, you will find a full on party room, large enough for a big crowd and even a band! Authentic regulation size Vintage Shuffleboard, pool table, ping-pong, bar, kitchen and full bathroom – this is the room it’s hard to leave! 4-plex apartment includes two 2-bedroom units and two 1-bedroom units with full kitchens as well as coin-operated laundry, shared parking and patio for outdoor dining, grilling or socializing. The dense old growth pines provide plenty privacy for the owners and tenants. Two of the tenants have been there 16+ years and of course would love to stay. Large decks surround the home and various patios, firepit and other shaded and open seating areas provide a home as nice to live outside as inside. The owner has painstakingly improved and kept this home in tip-top shape. It will provide a new owner a wonderful opportunity to live relatively maintenance free for years to come; in fact there will be ample time to perfect your shuffleboard, garden or woodwork… or just read a book in the hammock as you listen to the San Juan River make it’s way downstream. You will not find another downtown property like this. In fact, in 23 years of business in Pagosa Springs, we’ve never seen anything so unique in town. The home is easy to show, however tenants must be given 24-hr notice, so please plan accordingly. As an option, you could tour the home and property and see pictures of the apartments and schedule a tour of those in the future if this property meets your objective.
