I had a lot of fun photographing and videoing this spectacular riverfront land on the Blanco River with lush grass and 99 percent usability. This is just minutes from downtown Pagosa Springs, CO and would be an ideal spot for someone with horses or wanting to grow crops commercially. It would also be a great spot for an RV park or a fishing enthusiast. The lush meadows could be irrigated from the river and 99 percent of the property is usable.

Check out the video above for more stunning scenes from various parts of the property. Below I have embedded three additional videos showing more detail of the property interior. Call today for a personal tour of this amazing riverfront opportunity in Pagosa Springs, CO.



Mention the majestic aspen trees of Pagosa Springs, Colorado and most of us think of the amazing fall colors we experience in the gorgeous Pagosa landscapes.  But spring is equally exciting for us locals.  Watching the tulips bloom, the grass begin to green and the leaves budding is a sign that a long winter has indeed ended.

Below are photos I took last night as I prepared to put Evan to bed.  Mellane was very excited to see that the aspen were just starting to bud in our yard so I thought I would take a few shots for her.  Little did I know that I would spend more than an hour photographing this unfolding of nature’s spring brilliance.

Pagosa Springs, Colorado demands that you venture outside.  Enjoy the photos and please call me for the best of Pagosa Springs real estate.

The lush landscaping includes aspen, blue spruce, autumn blaze maple, crab apple, May day and cottonwood trees. The covered patio features a gorgeous rock fireplace and the soothing sounds of the San Juan River which is a very short walk from the home.

This was another perfect morning for the downtown balloon launch. I had a very busy day scheduled at work but had time to shoot a few quick shots off of our back deck. Check out the third photo. It’s looks like a couple was getting married during the launch. I also caught a rare photo of a balloon hovering over Main Street.  You can also see the Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership morning ceremony as well.

The living room and dining room have giant southeast facing windows to enjoy the views and capture solar exposure during the winter months. The walls are 12 inches thick which equates to a 30 percent reduction in heating expenses.

The six acres is heavily wooded with deer paths leading to a sun-filled meadow on the property. Additionally, the home is equipped with a whole-house vacuum system and the 1,000 gallon underground propane tank conveys with the sale (not rented) so you can buy your propane from whichever company is offering the best rates.
