Offered fully furnished, this beauty enjoys many artistic details and features hand-hewn, reclaimed wide-plank wood floors and a impressive rock fireplace and mantle anchoring all of it.

Other features include a beautiful designer lighting package, built-in surround sound, new appliances in the kitchen, a spacious 2-car garage and a dedicated laundry room. The home is on a domestic water well and septic system. The home’s exterior was recently stained (July 2014) and the Star Mountain Ranch fishing pond was stocked with trout. Also, Carbon Creek fishery enhancements are underway.
Star Mountain Ranch is a 1,500 acre development comprising 33 mountain homesites, each ranging from 35 to 40 acres. 375 acres of common ground provide Star Mountain Ranch owners private fishing, horseback riding and elk and deer hunting. There are two private gated entrances and owners enjoy year round access and underground utilities to each homesite. Gunnison, Colorado is located 30 minutes from Star Mountain Ranch.
The Star Mountain Ranch fishing amenity includes a private and stocked pond and a stretch of private water on Carbon Creek. The Star Mountain Ranch pond is approximately 1.5 acres in size. It was stocked with Rainbows and Cuttbows in May 2014. The current size of trout are from 11″ to 18″. The pond may be used for sport or owners are able to keep what they need for eating. Any method of lures, bait or flies is allowed. The Star Mountain Ranch pond is very good for children, novices or just people that want convenience.
The first phase of a several year project has begun to improve the fishery on Carbon Creek. The HOA has cleared the first 1200′ which is approximately 1/3 of the stretch of Carbon Creek on SMR property. With out any habitat improvements, Carbon Creek is already a productive stream full of Brown and Brook trout. Trout up to 14″ with most being around 8″ have been caught this summer. This stretch of Carbon Creek is fly fishing only and restricted to catch and release fishing.
