BUTTERCUP FARM – Fall in love with this 3BR/1B fully restored country home. Handcrafted barn-wood kitchen cabinets accented with rustico metal, harmonize this open, comfortable and warm country-kitchen. Sun-filled windows line the south kitchen wall and the views of the majestic Collegiate Peaks are stunning! The living room is off the kitchen and walls are lined with floor to ceiling windows & views. Double glass doors lead from the living room to an outdoor patio-deck and shade vega for parties, grilling, rocking and reading. A beautiful natural moss-rock wall and bench line one wall of the living room and a wood stove insert keeps this gorgeous room cozy in winter. This handcrafted rock beauty is the centerpiece of the home (if there had to be just one) and each room has some unique feature to be pondered and admired. Each bedroom is mountain-country perfection and the love that radiates from each small detail in every room will warm your heart. The master bedroom and bathroom are on the main floor and reveal custom handmade additions that make this country home unique. Just wait until you see the man-cave (or game-room/bar/saloon/trophy/race/ride/compete room if you prefer). What a fantastic place to let it loose and have some fun with family and friends!
Even the eclectic finish on the Buttercup Farm home is eye-catchingly unique! Curb appeal is enormous, combining xeroscaping with lush, golf-course-green grass, harmonizing colorful flower-beds with a rusted wagon-wheel fence. The inconsistancies definitely work! They create an overwhelming desire to enter the property and make yourself at home, an invitation hard to resist. The farm home has a metal roof and uses native rock, wood siding and wooden shake-shingles to a beautiful effect. Wood decks surround three sides of the home and create outdoor living spaces of privacy and beauty.
There are 6 outbuildings of various sizes on the farm. The 1,200 sqft metal shop/garage built in 2008, is very stout. Frame is metal I-Beam and well insulated to the metal skin and roof. The floor is a 6″ concrete pad for heavy use and there is a wood burning stove, good lighting, 110 & 220 volt outlets. The new wood barn has a finished space that the owners use for milk storage but it could easily be converted to an office or small apartment. The contented cows enjoy their barn, loafing shed and multiple corrals and hay storage along with a wash area for the ladies. The acreage is completely fenced and crossed fenced, totalling 4.32 acres.
The location of BUTTERCUP FARM is also unique and very easy to access. Residing just north of the Arkansas River and Highway 50 on a county-maintained road with few neighbors, big views and lots of quiet. Howard, Colorado is a great location and BUTTERCUP FARM is just a few minutes walk to thousands of acres of BLM with endless ATV, mountain bike or horse trails! Mule deer hunting is also very good. The farm is only minutes from the Arkansas River, famous for great fly fishing, white water rafting and kayaking. Located 15 minutes from Salida where you’ll find lots of recreational activities, fine dining and shopping. Monarch Ski Resort is 45 minutes away for snow skiing and snow mobiling in winter. Breckenridge and Copper Mountain ski resorts or just over the hill and there are several natural Hot Springs nearby from which to choose. There’s nothing better than relaxing in a hot-spring after a long, sweet day of snow-skiing, fly-fishing, horseback riding or mountain biking. Colorado Springs Airport is only 2 hours drive and DIA is less than 3.5 hours.
