761 Messinger Place

Like new, gorgeous mountain home on just over 2.5 acres with fabulous views of mountain meadows and snow capped high peaks in the Southern Rockies. With 3 large master suites and 2 lovely living areas, there is plenty of space for you and your family and guests to enjoy the peace and quiet of mountain living in luxury. Lots of light from the many windows. The nice kitchen has a cozy breakfast/dinner nook. Most furniture will stay at no cost, if the buyer wants it. The million dollar views of meadows, mountains and wildlife can be enjoyed right from the big, covered deck. The oversized 2 car garage is beautifully finished and offers plenty of space for a workshop. The house has high speed Internet, electric, a private well with excellent mountain water and a septic system with leach field for very easy maintenance. This is a perfect home for remote working! Forbes Park is a pristine, secure, gated community at 8500 to 9800 ft altitude with several small lakes, gorgeous meadows, fantastic views and wildlife galore. Most meadows are 'common areas' for everyone's enjoyment and can not be built on. The sub-alpine climate offers a wide variety of evergreens and aspen and wildflowers everywhere. The roads are maintained all year long, snow plowing is included in the low association dues. There are several ski areas at about 2 hours distance; Toas, Red River, Monarch and Wolf Creek. Fishing is close by at Mountain Home and Smith Reservoirs, and at Lathrop State Park. The Sand Dunes National Park is only 40 minutes away. Hunting is not allowed in Forbes Park, but you have direct access the National Forest from Forbes Park. Come see for yourself and you will fall in love!
