The Mountain View is a beautifully finished 4,780± square-foot log home perched high on 35± acres just minutes from La Veta, Colorado. Featuring stunning views of the Spanish Peaks and prominent dike walls, the quality workmanship of this home makes it locally known as a special property.

The Mountain View lies in the gated Raspberry Mountain Ranch subdivision off Colorado Highway 12, the state-designated Scenic Highway of Legends. The elevation of 7,900± feet tends to have a great mix of milder winters and cooler summers. Views from almost every room in the house are dramatic and offer an angle of view seen by only a few lucky souls. The spacious home has four bedrooms but could be expanded to five or six. There are three bathrooms, including the well-appointed primary ensuite bath that, with the bedroom, enjoys its own floor of the house. A central gathering room gas fireplace compliments the study’s wood-burning kiva-style fireplace. The log exterior has recently been restored and re-chinked. The deck has been replaced with a maintenance-free synthetic surface. Previous owners have had horses. Though there are no existing equestrian facilities, it is permitted. Elk, mule deer, and various wildlife are frequent visitors to the property.

One of the most outstanding features of the area is its breathtaking scenery, with stunning mountain vistas, Cuharas River, creeks, and abundant wildlife. This environment provides ample opportunities for hiking, camping, fishing, skiing, and other outdoor activities, making it an excellent destination for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Just a short drive up the road, Cuchara Mountain Park offers limited skiing opportunities in the winter months.

Moreover, La Veta is a vibrant community that values the arts, history, and local traditions. Its downtown area is home to art galleries, restaurants, live music venues, and boutiques. Various cultural events and festivals occur throughout the year, including the Celtic Festival, Oktoberfest, and July 4th Art in the Park.

The people in this area are friendly and welcoming and honor the town’s heritage, as seen at the Francisco Fort Museum. Mountain people embrace a laid-back and relaxed lifestyle; La Veta is no exception, with a strong sense of community and camaraderie.
