AN OPEN INVITATION:To come see for yourself and get to know this
Massively Sized Home Situated On Creek-Side Setting in Highly Sought After North Elk Meadows
What’s the one thing that everyone wishes for when buying a home, yet rarely finds??
We’ll get to that in a minute, but first, if you have been looking for a home offering abundant room to accommodate a big family and all the guests, but have found others to be just too small, or too far away from the amenities of town, then you need to get your feet on the ground at 104 Mallard Point.
Located just a couple miles North of Gunnison in the coveted North Elk Meadows neighborhood, you’ve got the peacefulness of a secluded setting, yet you’re just minutes from town. Right through the back yard runs Ohio Creek, which creates a soothing ambience for relaxing mornings and evenings out on the custom built patio in addition to the half mile of shared fishing rights you’ll have for a healthy population of brown and rainbow trout.
With 4,416 square feet of living space plus giant 3 car garage, the home is set up for hosting and providing plenty of elbow room for all the family and guests.
Mountain lifestyle, Mountain Community: The best of both worlds
Beauty, Recreation, and an easy-going way of life; that is the essence of the Gunnison-Crested Butte area and why people are inspired to be here. At any given moment, you are surrounded by mountain views. An array of opportunities to connect with nature are literally within minutes in any direction, whether that’s hiking among summer wildflowers as tall as you are up in Crested Butte, fishing our 3 main rivers, countless small streams, or two big reservoisrs, world class mountain biking trails, secluded wilderness campsites… the list goes on! The small towns of our community; Gunnison and Crested Butte were founded on mining and have “rich” histories. Experience Cattleman’s Days in Gunnison; an exhibit of the community’s ranching heritage and culture for 117 years now and going strong! Crested Butte is the official and undisputed wildflower capital of the state and has hosted an annual wildflower festival each July since 1986. Whatever their interests are, your guests and family are sure to be amazed by this Colorado gem, that is, The Gunnison Country!
Tranquility and Pride of ownership…
Is what the North Elk Meadows neighborhood is comprised of. This is an established community with a mix of mid-aged and newer homes. The meadow and creek side settings along with generous spacing between homes create a “country-type” feel. This area is ideal for families and seasonal residents who want that country feel, but would also like to be able to make a quick round trip to the grocery store in under 30 minutes.
Custom Built Dual Master Suite
It can be difficult to find exactly what you’re after in any given home. As was the case when the current owners purchased 104 Mallard Point. It was originally a 3,400 sq. foot home with all 3 bedrooms upstairs. To better suit needs, the comfort and convenience of a main floor master suite was added— two of them, in fact! The 1,000 sq. foot addition is currently used as a unique dual master suite set up featuring two 18’X 23’ rooms with walk- in closets and in floor radiant heat; providing ultimate comfort for guests and owners. The rooms converge into two custom “his and hers” style half baths along with a spacious shower. BUT-- use your imagination with this. It could also be used as a master suite with separate dressing room or home office.
Abundant Room to Accommodate those you care about
But it doesn’t stop there. The large den area is currently utilized for dining/lounging, but could easily be expanded into a full on entertainment center everyone could enjoy. Upstairs you have the comfort of yet another master suite-style set up with a 13’ X 13’ bedroom as well as a full bath and his/hers sinks along with another spacious walk-in closet. Across the hallway are two more 9.5’ X 13’ bedrooms that share their own full bathroom.
Just when you think there couldn’t be any more house…
the size of this room will leave you in awe and looking out the windows to figure out how it was fit into the floor plan. A 28’ X 22.5’ room with huge closets offers a multitude of uses. Most will likely see it as a media room filled with games and a big TV/projector where kids can remain occupied for hours on end. However the options are plentiful such as : abundant studio space for the musician and or artist, home business center, sportsman room ( fly tying, gun racks, mounts, etc.). The canvass is truly blank on this one and ready to be customized and utilized by the right folks.
Enjoy The outdoors without leaving home
If you love the outdoors, yet need/would rather stay close to home; you won’t have to worry about missing out!
Perfect for those summer nights with cold beer, cookouts, cocktail parties, Sunday brunch, or a place to dive into a good book — out back you will find an amazing, custom built 44’ X 25’stone patio area that exquisitely completes and compliments the serene Creek-side setting you have. This patio has more than enough room for you, family and guests to spread out and enjoy the fresh air. You’ll also appreciate the custom awning for added shelter.
Exclusive Fishery Awaits
The reason many people/anglers don’t know much about Ohio Creek is because it runs through private ranch lands for nearly it’s entirety in length. That’s just another reason having it right in your back yard along with about .5 mile shared rights through Norh elk Meadows is so special. Ohio Creek supports a good resident population of mostly Brown and some Rainbow Trout. Ohio Creek support abundant life of aquatic insects, so the fish are eager to take an array of dry flies during summer hatches along with good ol’ lures like panther martins and kastmaster. Where do the fish come from? Well, since Ohio Creek joins the Gunnison River just a few miles down stream, many fish make their way up from there—including some larger brown trout during the fall spawn. Additionally, some of your neighbors up and downstream have been known to stock some fish in their sections that can make their way into your stretch.
104 Mallard Point is currently being offered at $800,000.
Who knows? In regards to pricing, perhaps you would have the same thought process in mind, or have experienced something similar. You buy a property, enhance it with a couple hundred thousand dollars worth of improvements, such as, in this case, the 1,000 square foot dual master suite addition and the 44’ X 25’ custom stone patio. Then, when it comes time to sell, you arrive at your asking price simply as a function of what you’re “in it” for. Would you really consider starting out any other way? Do you know anyone who likes to lose money? Neither do I.
If you’re wanting a top of the line kitchen, brand new carpets, and a plethora of other high-end cosmetic features, unfortunately, 104 Mallard Point may not be the property for you as it is geared more towards SIZE, FUNCTION, and SETTING.
However, the one thing everyone wishes for in a home, yet rarely finds, that 104 Mallard DOES have?
A motivated seller!
Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s practically up for grabs, but, you know how it goes. You find a suitable property and make a move only to find out that the seller is NOT motivated. He’s got it on the market and if it does sell for the price he’s looking for, GREAT, if not, no big deal.
You see, the current owner of this property has had it about 10 years, used strictly as a seasonal residence. Admittedly, he is not tied down to the property, but personal life and changing circumstances have shifted priorities and evolved into a need to move on. As a seasonal owner, the need to stay closer to his year round residence has made taking care of this property a growing challenge. Needing attention, supervision, matinenance etc. So much so that he feels it is keeping him from truly moving on to the next chapter. Because he feels this way, he is motivated to move the property. He has no problem in helping the buyer make the right deal for everyone involved. Simply put—somebody, sooner or later, will be the one to do just that and enjoy all the benefits and future possibilities of this great property.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to see this fabulous setting and how much space and accommodation the home offers!
