Get your slice of mountain paradise right along the Arkansas River! This unique property began as an iconic restaurant known as The Prospector that served the Leadville area for 50 years. Now, rezoned as a residential property, the current owner has spent the last few years updating the property with new systems and an artistic touch centered around the original mining theme of the property. Inside the home, you will find a wide open living space that once hosted weddings, proms and date nights. A central fireplace and woodburning stove add to the mountain ambiance and keep the space toasty in the winter while large windows capitalize on amazing mountain views. The former bar has been converted into a unique designer kitchen with hammered copper sink, copper backsplash and modern appliances. In addition to the 3 large bedrooms (one of which is currently used as a studio), there is plenty of room for overnight guests. There is also a huge amount of workshop/storage space, including a walk-in cooler and one car garage with overhead door. Outside the home, the Arkansas river is just a few steps away and wildlife abounds. Property adjoins the 180 acre Headwaters Ranch public access easement to over 3 miles of fishing along the East Fork of the Arkansas River. Owner has installed 2 RV hookups, and the all new septic system installed in 2018 was overengineered for 6 bedrooms, allowing for future expansion of the property. If you are looking for a mountain property, this one checks all the boxes: mountain views, river access, multiple acres, close to town, new systems and located near world class skiing and outdoor recreation. This property has also recently been successfully used as a vacation rental property receiving many 5 star reviews and providing solid additional income for the owner.
