This Lake Pagosa lakefront home with tremendous mountain views is ideally situated with additional space bufferon the side and front, giving the illusion of even more than the ¾-acre lot the house currently sits on. Although all the Pagosa Lakes are appealing, Lake Pagosa is undoubtedly the most desirable and the least attainable – there aren’t many homes that change hands on this fabulous, trout-stocked lake. Year-round fishing, paddle boarding in the summer, and when the conditions are just right (early cold without too much snow), you can skate until February. If we get a lot of snow early, it’s a great lake for X-country or snowshoeing. Enjoy a main floor primary bedroom while guests or kids can be upstairs with their loft for reading, movies, or just relaxing by the woodstove. Open floor plan with an abundance of windows for lots of natural light and passive solar benefit. Huge new deck for enjoying a glass of wine while taking in the Alpenglow setting on Pagosa Peak. Maybe even see the Bald Eagles, prevalent around this lake, “fishing” for their dinner. This home is a perfect home for family or guests, but with the additional space buffer, it is also great for those wanting privacy and a cozy lakefront cabin. Tank-less water heaters give instant, on-demand hot water. The garage currently has an enclosed workshop; however, walls could easily be removed to provide additional garage space. There are many paved roads for easy, flat biking and bike path access, or get on your mountain bike, and you’re less than 2 miles to a National Forest access gate. Just 5 minutes to City Market Shopping Center, Walmart, Pagosa Mountain Hospital, Pagosa Springs Golf Course, and all resort amenities, including the Ralph Eaton Recreation Center. Fish the four private trout-stocked lakes of the Pagosa Lakes Resort area, play tennis, or ride your bike on the resort paths. Pagosa Lakes Resort amenities are exclusive to homes or landowners of this area. Within a 15-minute drive, you can be in downtown Pagosa Springs, where you can soak in the Pagosa Hot Springs or walk along the San Juan River walking path. If that is not enough, enjoy 2.5 million-plus acres of San Juan National Forest just minutes in any direction you drive. The tenant requests 24-hour notice on showings.
