Property Description

Nestled high on Hastings Mesa about 20 minutes from Telluride with towering mountain views lies a property of musical legend: Music Gardens Ranch. A visit to the ranch leaves no question as to its namesake. Hidden among its net-zero sustainable living features and custom treasures is a fabled recording studio that has been dubbed “Studio in the Clouds.” To name a few, Dierks Bentley, Neil Young and Jewel have recorded in the studio. It was designed by a rocket scientist to be acoustically perfect. Above the recording studio is the sound engineer’s apartment. An entire floor of the home is dedicated to accommodating the musicians or guests with three bedrooms, full kitchen, large living spaces and deck. The ranch is net-zero energy and is able to produce its own energy and food onsite with a 1200 square-foot greenhouse, chicken coop and agricultural grazing rights, gravity spring-fed water system. Almost all the materials are reclaimed or recycled materials. It has 96 electric solar panels, 46 hot water collectors and a 13,000-gallon tank of near-stream temperature to supply two miles of in-floor heat tubing. Passive solar energy is also gained through the windows in the greenhouse and energy loss is minimized through efficient insulation. The 90.5-acres stretches over two parcels of land. Parcel One on 41 acres includes the 11,672 square-foot primary house, attached 1,200 square-foot greenhouse/solarium, a 720 square-foot shed, a 1,280 square-foot barn, a 480 square-foot caretaker’s unit, a small writer’s sanctuary, a three-car garage and the “Studio in the Clouds.” Parcel Two on 49 acres has a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2,407 square-foot home, a barn and a shed. In the spacious primary residence, the main level has been opened up to encourage socializing around a living room, dining room, fireplace and large chef's kitchen. Five bedrooms and six full bathrooms give everyone a sense of comfort and privacy, as a large owner’s suite offers an attached office/library and private decks with access to the warmth, humidity and greenery of the greenhouse. It also provides access to a trout pond, multiple springs and a 2.5 mile-trail system traversing the wooded mountainsides, canyon and pastures. Music Gardens Ranch hits all the high notes for a private, sustainable mountain retreat. It’s one of those Telluride properties that comes along once-in-a-lifetime. It can never be replicated. There is only one.
