Seldom does a Cucharas River property in La Veta come on the market, let alone one that has exceptional privacy, two homes, an art studio, insulated outbuildings, 1.7± acres, a high-fenced yard, and much more. Soak in the hot tub on the deck with the river flowing below you and a wood fire roaring in the porch fireplace. Open your bedroom windows and let the peaceful river sounds rock you to sleep.

The property features a custom 1,750 square foot, two-bedroom/two-bathroom home on the river. An updated two-bedroom/two-bathroom farmhouse is currently used as a nightly rental generating a profitable income. A beautiful historic dairy barn has been converted to a heated art studio. Fenced garden areas, landscaping, an insulated workshop, a one-car garage, woodstoves, an outdoor fireplace, and front and back porches compliment the setting.

An easy walk or bike ride will take you into La Veta, a quaint little town with no traffic lights or franchise businesses. It has several restaurants, a couple of live music venues, a very cool mom-and-pop grocery store, a yoga studio, art galleries, a microbrewery, a coffee shop, and some of the most stunning views in Colorado. The Spanish Peaks and Sangre de Cristo mountains frame the lush Cucharas River Valley.

A short nine-mile drive up the valley on Colorado designated Scenic Highway of Legends takes you past dramatic dike rock wall formations to the little mountain village of Cuchara.
