Dont pass up this immaculate, well cared for log cabin amongst the trees and surrounded by wilderness. Located in Sargents, Colorado, just off Hwy 50 in the subdivision of Deer Haven Estates, youll enjoy the HOA conveniences of snow removal for year round access, shared water and sewer, and sense of community, yet have the seclusion and privacy you desire in a park like setting. Just as the name states, it is a haven for deer as the back of the subdivision borders Gunnison National Forest, including this 1 acre cabin thats for sale.
This 2 story tong and grove log home was built in 1986 and is 2043 sq ft. It features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a matching tong and groove log detached oversized 1 car garage plus a shed with electric and concrete floors. With double doors on both ends of the shed, you can drive your snowmobile, ATV or bikes in and out with ease! The HOA has a well and central sewer system which it owns and maintains and is included in the HOA fees. Youll want to enjoy your morning coffee or evening glass of wine on the screened in/glassed 40x8 porch/sunroom, which faces the backyard and the national forest because theres a good chance you might see a family of deer or other small wildlife lingering about.
The owners have owned the cabin since 1990 and only use it on average for 6 weeks per year, so it is in tip top shape! Many updates and additions have been done over the years including the great room with fireplace was added in 2013 with the metal roof over the original cabin replaced to match the new addition. Carpet, kitchen appliances, and many light fixtures have been replaced, kitchen cabinet refaced and upstairs bath renovated all in the last 6 years. Exterior logs were stained in 2015 with a second coat applied in April 2018. Finally, natural gas was installed in Deer Haven Estates HOA in 2012, thus the cabin is heated by natural gas forced air, there is a gas cook top oven, and the fireplace is gas but can be converted to wood burning.
