About this Ranch
The Nelson Farm is 75.45± acres of farmland located in Olathe, Colorado. The quiet community of Olathe is famous for sweet corn and is in the Uncompahgre Valley which is known to be a very productive region where farming and livestock abound.
The farm has 66.9 shares of UVWUA irrigation water including upgraded concrete ditches and gated pipe. Other features include a pond, year-round water, a loafing shed with tack room, a chicken coop, a large lawn with a full sprinkler system, and a spacious parking area. The huge 50’x125’ fully insulated red-iron shop offers four 14’x18’ overhead insulated doors, loft storage, a half bath, three-phase power, 220 power, a wood stove, and a negotiable 2-post car lift. This unique property is currently planted in corn and a grass/alfalfa mix. If you don’t want to maintain the field, there are options to lease out the land or the seller would consider a boundary adjustment if a different acreage if preferred.
The 5,814± square foot luxury home is a remodeled 50’s farmhouse with a huge addition built in 2005. Be welcomed into the roomy foyer with a convenient half-bath leading to the large southern great room. It’s nothing short of stately with a cathedral ceiling, a magnificent floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, giant windows, stained concrete floors, and access to the large concrete patio area which is great for entertaining. The northern living room boasts more large windows, a tongue & groove ceiling, and a woodstove with a beautiful, stacked stone surround. From here, a locally crafted, Italian metal semi-spiral staircase takes one up to the 400± square foot office with hardwood flooring, oak cabinetry, and access to a balcony overlooking the great room. Back downstairs, the Tuscan-style kitchen is fit for a culinary master—all stainless with two islands (one featuring bar seating and one with a prep sink), a commercial-grade gas range housed in a special brick wall, a single and double dishwasher, and a mix of canned and hanging lighting. Passing through the laundry room leads to the master bedroom. Big and cheerful, it accesses the large back patio and contains a bathroom with dual sinks, a glassed-in shower with travertine tile, and a jetted soaker tub. From there is a hallway with four more bedrooms, a full bath, and a three-quarter bath. Finally, a third living area lies next to the kitchen. You’ll have a difficult time deciding where to eat or lounge due to all the choices! Plus, a large storage room grants welcome space for hiding your extra treasures. The home also offers two air conditioning units and three propane tanks. On the southern edge of the property is an incredible building site with great views - you must see the property in person to truly appreciate it. Home and shop can also be purchased with only 5.5 acres. Schedule your private viewing today.
