This unique rustic log cabin in the woods has one main level bedroom and a closed off loft, a bathroom, and a workable kitchen. It sits on 6 plus acres with great views, a spring fed pond, space for your horses, and it borders the Pike Natl Forest. Its the getaway you've been dreaming of, or a great historic cabin on the property for your new home. There's a solar power system that is still producing a current but was struck by lightening, a gravity fed cistern that needs some work, connections for propane but no tank, and a chicken coop with a gravity rainwater fed pond for water that also needs work. This cabin was constructed long ago using hand-hewn logs harvested off the property. It has been re-chinked, and the addition built since then, thus the 1983 date (which was per Teller County) but its in remarkable shape considering. There is a root cellar adjacent to the cabin, a covered patio off the rear with wind breaks included so you can enjoy dining outdoors. The house was built with a post and beam construction and no settling or cracking has occurred- which is pretty amazing. The skylights in the original cabin and the addition have developed some leaks, which were sealed and haven't leaked since the repair, but they need more work. The solar collector is intact, the wiring is intact, and it needs battery maintenance/replacement (don't know which) and a new controller. The cistern is gravity fed and we're not sure what it needs. The propane tank was removed when the owners vacated several years ago, but could be replaced. There is a cesspool for the septic system, but should be upgraded if you intend to occupy as a primary residence. Owners lived in this home for 12 years, full-time, so it is live-able. It will take some effort, and some money, but the cabin could be made live-able....or leave it as-is and build another home on the lot.
