and allround 
Recreational Capital of The World

This, can be your new "Gym"

Hello, we have a beautiful home for sale in Lovely Ouray, Colorado. It is perched overlooking town, Fellin Park, and newly remodeled Hot Springs Pool and Gym. This View Home would make a great vacation home...  a all-season recreational retreat for jeeping, hiking, exploring, winter backcountry skiing/snowshoe trips or convenient hub for skiing Telluride or snowmobiling the millions of acres of surrounding National Forest Lands.  Then go soak in the Ouray Hot Springs, only a four minute walk from your our front door. 
In addition to photos below, here is a

Why invest in Ouray Real Estate?

  • Because The City of Ouray is surrounded by National Forest and only a limited supply of private land remains. There is little room for growth (think Sedona) and real estate shortages in beautiful places creates investment opportunities. 
  • Because it is the most beautiful place on earth.
  • Because it is still affordable. Our home in Ouray would sell for well over 3 million dollars 17 miles away (as the crow flies) in Telluride. 
  • Because of numerous Hot Springs.
  • Because you can walk to trailheads from home.
  • Because you are tired of City Life, traffic, congestion, crime, noise, pollution, crowds, high taxes, commutes... and so on.

Here are a few photos of our two-home family vacation compound that we had for sale. The one on the right SOLD recently, but the one on the left is still for sale.  It's an upscale three bedroom, 3 bath... or,  you can use the downstairs Bed Room as a "Mother-in-law studio apartment" (fully self contained with private entrance), or use it as ab alternate, more private Master Bedroom...as opposed to the master B R upstairs.  Click on photos for a slide show in a larger format.

This home is almost brand new... the 
lawn wraps around left to the back, and is complete with an automatic programable sprinkler system, plus a drip irrigation zone for flower numerous flower beds and potted flowers outside. 
Here is a view of our "VIEW," taken out our front window. It's called "The Blowout," a multi-hued volcanic formation that our house looks directly into.

Lost the Christmas Spirit? No Snow where you live? This could be your vacation home/family retreat. Ouray has an in town Sledding Hill and a Rope Tow Ski slope that the kids or grandkids can walk to. Then go soak in the Hot Springs Pool... it's just around the corner from our driveway. 

Or, you can go watch Ice Festival Climbers in Box Canyon all winter... maybe learn to climb yourself.

We are in our 60's and still enjoy going on long snowshoe treks up on
Red Mountain, only 8 miles away. Then, of course, go for a soak in the Hot Springs

Newly expanded and remodeled Hot Springs only a five minute walk
