Welcome to Lovely Ouray, Colorado!
"Switzerland of America"
Hiking, Jeeping, 
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 and would make a great vacation home...  a summer recreational retreat for jeeping, hiking, exploring, and/or, a winter wonderland hub for skiing Telluride, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and soaking in the Ouray Hot Springs,  a four minute walk from your new front door. 
In addition to photos below, here is a
LINK to a recent walk-through Video 

Now, why invest in Ouray Real Estate?

  • Because The City of Ouray has a limited supply of land and will soon run out of room for growth (think Sedona). Ouray has pushed up against its National Forest boundaries, and we all know how shortages create investment opportunities. 
  • Because it is the most beautiful place on earth.
  • Because it is still affordable. Our home in Ouray would sell for over 3 million dollars just 17 miles away (as the crow flies) in Telluride. 
  • Because of the numerous Hot Springs.
  • Because you can walk to so many trailheads from home.
  • Because you are tired of City Life, 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 or an alternate, more private Master Bedroom from the one upstairs.  Click on photos for a slide show in a larger format.

This home is almost brand new... grass now grows in the
lawn area and landscaping is done... complete with an automatic sprinkler system and drip irrigation for flower beds and potted plants outdoors. 
Here is another look at the "Blowout." The house looks right into
the heart of this colorful formation.

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
