Welcome to Whispering Pines River Ranch, your quintessential mountain retreat. Lock and leave, or live year-round, this estate located just below Lemon Dam is unlike any other. Enjoy 1400 feet of private Florida River frontage on nearly 32 acres in a breath-taking mountain setting. Enter the property and head into the warm and cozy 1750 square foot log cabin. This main home underwent an elegant remodel in 2008 with the utmost attention to detail. Enter from the homey covered front porch into the entryway overlooking the Gourmet's kitchen, complete with an over-sized island, granite countertops, KitchenAid stainless steel appliances and a generous dining space with vaulted tongue & groove ceilings. Perched above the kitchen and dining area is a quaint loft space, suitable as guest sleeping quarters or an additional office/den. Just off the kitchen is a gorgeous full bath and a guest bedroom. The main home also enjoys a comfortable and cozy den, perfect for snuggling up on those snowy winter nights. Privately located on the west wing of the home, the master suite bodes grand vaulted ceilings, fireplace, exquisite bath with soaking tub, walk-in closet and access to the back covered porch. Each room of the main home features a propane stove with digital thermostat in addition to electric baseboard heating, powered by the solar system installed in 2015. A separate 3200 SF barn structure on the property serves as a truly one-of-a-kind multi-use space. Constructed in 2013, the fully heated lower level is comprised of 2100 SF. Accessed on both ends of the building by over-sized overhead doors, the space is currently used as a rec/media room, custom office space, and has the capacity to park and store vehicles, machinery and all calibers of outdoor gear. The overhead door access creates an indoor/outdoor living space providing access to the covered porch with stamped concrete and built-in wood-burning fireplace. The 1100 SF second level of the barn serves as private guest quarters with an additional gourmet kitchen, living area with custom built-ins, a second laundry room, full bath and two additional bedrooms. A 3-car detached garage also sits on the property and was recently remodeled in 2016 to include lots of built-in shelving for storage. Part of the total acreage includes a 4 acre, unimproved lot on the river that has a well permit and is build-ready for an additional home or structure. The property features an additional 3 building sites, 2 septic systems, 2 propane tanks, security cameras with live feeds in 8 locations, surround sound in both the main home and barn, exceptional high speed internet hardwired from house to barn, no restrictive covenants or HOA and countless other amenities. Additionally, the property was featured in the 2014 Durango Wedding Magazine. With the abundance of exceptional features and creative design, a mountain estate of this caliber must be seen to truly appreciate. Schedule your showing today!
