This luxury horse property near Montrose, Colorado has a great set of assets for the equine enthusiast. The home is spacious and inviting, with 3,619 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, a formal dining room, sunny breakfast nook, large family room with wet bar and patio, an attached 3-car garage, and a detached 24×26 2-car garage. The grounds are well landscaped with mature trees, pressurized underground sprinkler system, stamped concrete walkways and patios, and manicured flower gardens.

This home is located in the Leatheridge subdivision on the west side of Montrose, an established neighborhood with mature trees and landscaping. The area is known as Spring Creek for the clear mountain stream that flows through it. With its rural charm, horse properties, hay farms, cornfields, and small cattle ranches, it has a distinctly agricultural feel to it. Since it’s only a few minutes to downtown Montrose, it is one of the favorite neighborhoods in the area.
The home and horse improvements are situated on a separate 1.63-acre parcel situated in the Leatheridge subdivision, while the hay meadow is divided into (2) separate 8.5-acre parcels, each with its own water tap and a dedicated access easement. Small farm acreages are highly sought after in the Spring Creek area, and these parcels are unencumbered by any homeowners’ association or covenants—a rarity these days. The parcels have excellent Tri-County irrigation water, delivered by gated pipe.
The recreational aspects to this property are excellent. Outstanding elk and deer hunting in Colorado GMU 61 and 62 are just up the road on the Uncompaghre Plateau. The San Juan mountains provide scenic views just to the south—as well as world-class skiing in Telluride and Silverton. The soothing hot springs of Ouray are less than half an hour distant. The gold-medal waters of the Gunnison River are within half an hour’s drive. Hundreds of miles of mountain trails await the serious horse enthusiast.
Montrose is a gateway to the San Juan mountains and the Uncompaghre Plateau, two vast mountain ecosystems. The Black Canyon of the Gunnison is just east of town, with world-class fly-fishing. Telluride is a little more than 45 minutes south, while Grand Junction is an hour north. The town has big-box stores such as SuperWalMart and Home Depot; an excellent regional airport with direct flights to several major US cities; and an excellent hospital and a VA clinic. Yet the town keeps a rural feel, and the surrounding neighborhoods of grain farms, hay meadows, cattle ranches, and orchards provide a beautiful pastoral setting. Quality of life is high in Montrose, Colorado.
