Description

Mountain Bird Ranch is the former home of recording artist Dan Fogelberg who fell in love with the sweeping vistas of this serene, alpine location. Located 35 minutes southeast of downtown Pagosa Springs, this beautiful estate encompasses approximately 610 acres, with an end-of-the-road location in the awe inspiring Blanco Basin. The property sets between an elevation of 8400' and 8900' and is almost entirely surrounded by National Forest. Improvements include a stunning 7568 sq-ft main house, 2994 sq-ft guest house, large indoor riding arena with horse stalls, mechanics shop with attached barn and; a 2000 gallon capacity fuel shed. Terrain on the ranch is gently sloping and covered by groves of aspens, fir spruce forests, scattered stands of gambol oak, lush open meadows and parks, a beautiful lake, and ponds stocked with trout. Seasonal streams support horses, cattle, and a myriad of wildlife species. San Juan National Forest and Wilderness Areas border the ranch on three sides, offering private access and a recreational gateway to one of Colorado's most beautiful mountain areas. Several miles of private roads provide access to most of the property, and the views of the nearby peaks from the ranch roads are simply spectacular. Approximately 6.75 miles of perimeter fencing surround the property, providing an excellent barrier to control livestock. One-quarter mile of new interior fence separates the approximately 490-acre parcel used for grazing from the 120-acre parcel that contains all of the ranch buildings. The enchanting primary residence, custom-built for Dan Fogelberg, has been recently remodeled and updated. The home reflects gracious Old World living, elegant yet cozy and casual. This home is an entertainer's dream and includes a stunning chef's kitchen, two breakfast/lunch nooks, private suites, a formal dining room, multiple sitting areas, and a grand living room with a stacked stone fireplace. Other amenities include a professionally designed recording studio, a workout room, downstairs bar, and a billiard room. Luxurious and intricate woodwork and stained-glass windows throughout the home provide a unique rustic mountain elegance aesthetic. Floors are covered with premium carpet, granite tiles, and solid hickory/oak planking. Cabinetry and trim are custom-made using solid oak. Douglas Fir is used for the overhead beams and interior wainscotting. The exposed beams and posts in the kitchen are solid Missouri red oak. The 2017 Kitchen appliances are Subzero, Wolf, and Kitchen Aid. The kitchen countertops are unique granite with a "leather-like" finish. An antique 18th-century European fire-back is used between the Wolf Range and Vent-a-Hood, adding to the warm ambiance. Interior and exterior doors are all Douglas Fir except for the front entrance, which is Oak. An oversized 3-car garage is attached to the home via an elevated breezeway. Above the garage is a spacious finished office/apartment with bathroom. Beautiful stamped concrete walkways surround the home, including lush garden areas, a back deck, an exterior porch, small balconies, Victorian style iron railings, and an outdoor patio with a built-in fireplace. Enjoy soaking in the outdoor hot tub or sitting in the sauna after exploring the surrounding mountains. The guest house is currently under renovation. Renovations of the 5 bedroom, 4-1/2 bath home include new countertops, sinks, toilets, tubs, flooring, paint, interior doors, and exterior trim. The property is offered turnkey, including ranch equipment/vehicles and home furnishings. The furnishings are a mixture of Fogelberg's original furniture, antiques, and the current owner's furniture. Also included are the Fogelberg's China dishes, a 90+ bottle wine collection, and a nearly 1000 vinyl album record collection. Mountain Bird Ranch is a rare opportunity to own a piece of history in a private and pristine setting that glorifies Colorado mountain living at its best!
