This custom handcrafted Dovetail Log home on 2.7-acres in the Rainbow Placer Subdivision near the historic town of Tin Cup, Colorado. Situated in a gorgeous setting surrounded by tall evergreens with incredible views towards the Continental Divide with Willow Creek and Lake Louise just below and bordering the Gunnison National Forest on two sides. Built by Henry Wood's Native Sun Construction out of Lake City, this home was built from standing dead Fir logs from Montana, hand-hewn to 10-inch square logs. Dovetail log construction is a very old log building technique and it is still a practical and efficient way to build beautiful, enduring log homes. The exterior has Eldorado stacked stone wainscoting on the lower walkout. Interior details include hand-hewn beams throughout and timber stairs with hand-peeled stair spindles. Featuring three bedrooms and two bathrooms including the master suite with an outside balcony to enjoy the wildlife and views. The gourmet kitchen has a large timber center island with stainless appliances and Knotty Alder custom cabinets. Some of the interior finishes include hand-hewn beams throughout, exposed square log joinery, and aspen tongue and groove ceilings. The high-quality construction throughout includes Sierra Pacific Windows, 10" foam panel insulation in the ceiling, metal roofing, and insulated concrete foam foundation. The efficient in-floor radiant heat combined with a hand-crafted Eldorado stone fireplace with a Regency WarmHearth insert are all designed to keep you cozy on those chilly nights. There is ample room and covenants allow for a garage and additional outbuilding in this subdivision. Enjoy private access to over five miles of private high-alpine fly fishing on Willow Creek that is stocked on a yearly basis. Grandchildren will enjoy fishing in the stocked trout pond nearby and moose and deer are not an uncommon sight. The historic town of Tin Cup and the surrounding area of Taylor Park has become well-known as the best ATV and snowmobiling area in the state! Most likely you will see many adventurers riding ATVs, UTVs, dirt bikes, and jeeps in this area as there are lots of old mining towns and places to explore such as Mirror Lake and Tincup cemetery. You can also venture over Tin Cup Pass to St. Elmo or even head over Cumberland Pass into Pitkin. There is a multitude of activities to do in this area including world-class fly fishing and whitewater rafting on the Taylor River, exploring old mines, big game hunting in area 55, snowmobiling, and even ice fishing or boating on the Taylor Reservoir. This property is an easy five-mile snowmobile ride up the park from the Trading Post in the winter and an easy two-wheel drive road during most months. Taylor Park Reservoir is about five miles away and offers excellent fishing for Kokanee salmon, five species of trout, and Northern Pike.
