Log home on the Arkansas River with cabin with water rights. The little town site of Maysville, Colorado was founded in the 1870's when Amasa Feathers began a stock ranch at the junction of the North Fork and the South Arkansas River. The By the 1890's, gold fever invaded the Monarch District and prospectors took over as cattle were forgotten. The South Fork of the Arkansas River runs 900 feet through this beautiful 9.46 acre parcel of land that sits in the shadows of 14,000 foot mountain peaks.
The one remaining chicken coup dates from the early and mid twentieth century when the property was a thriving chicken farm. The tall, weathered feed shed attests to the chicken farm days as well. There are even the remnants of the two-holer, which served its purpose back then.
A small, 600 square foot log cabin near the river was originally built in 1932 and later enlarged in the 1950's. The large log home, built in 2000 has 2142 square feet, with 2 large bedrooms, an office area, 2½ baths, large great room and kitchen, beautiful wood floors, utility room, in floor heat supplemented by a large wood stove, and lots of glass to view the wildlife and breath-taking mountain views.
The property also has a custom-built greenhouse, a detached two-car garage, and approximately 3 acres of pasture. Fishing access under the bridge is only 100 feet from the main log home and the large one acre pond adjacent to the river has often been stocked with local german brown, rainbow, and cutthroat trout. The property comes with deeded rights to the Paul Talley spring as well as an augmented well.
