Property Description

This spacious home is a perfect artist or musicians' retreat. 2nd home, get away at the base of the Sangre de Cristos or a quiet abode. Inspiring. Featuring a fenced garden, horse stall, workshop areas, as well as an interior studio with sink station and recently updated living areas - offering many options for creative pursuits, entertaining, outdoor activities and enjoying the relaxed day to day pace of this corner of The Valley. It is situated a half mile from the New Mexico/Colorado border - an hour’s drive to the artist community of Taos, New Mexico – and an hour's drive North to Alamosa, Colorado (home of Adam’s State University). This makes it conveniently situated for ventures to either state. It is 3 miles from the Rio Grande Gorge – just down State Line Road, and within a 20 – 30 minute’s drive to Wild Rivers, Valle Vidal, Ute Mountain, and Red River (a bit farther afield) Opportunities and an outdoor play ground are waiting. Jaroso, Colorado is a unique mix of generations, farmers and ranchers, outdoor enthusiasts and creative entrepreneurs and artists. Begun in the early 1900’s as part of the Southern Colorado railroad, Jaroso was once a bustling business community. Today, some of it’s original founding families remain – raising animals and some of the most nutritious alfalfa, hay, potatoes and other vegetables in the country. For it’s small size, Jaroso boasts a Post Office, Seed Company, a bakery, and a hotel. Each year in the Fall, it is part of the Rio Costillo Studio Tour – highlighting the artists and arts of the valley to which it belongs. Ceramics, sculpture, drum and instrument making, jewelry, painting, music all have their representation in and around this small town. There is even a pink adobe church that serves as a concert and recording venue for musicians from around the United States, and as far afield as Africa. The Southern end of the San Luis Valley (the largest Alpine in the United States) boasts never-ending high-desert skies, wildlife, and mountain silhouettes in every direction.
