Property Description

Against the majestic backdrop of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in Southern Colorado, home sits on 10.7 acres of groomed horse pasture. Located in the cattle ranching community of the Wet Valley just outside of Westcliffe. This special home’s overall design and features are based on actual conversations the home’s designer had with movie legend, John Wayne. The home’s creator often remarked: “This is the house John Wayne would have built and lived as a real Cowboy”. The home is a true 1880’s period re-creation featuring hand crafted wood moldings and trim made from locally cut Red Spruce along with period antiques, which add to the authentic feel of a stately Victorian Western Ranch Home of its day. The home is designed around its main feature, the large-scale fireplace with 6’ high mantle flanked by ceiling high bookcases stocked with leather bound masterpieces. Home’s wood beamed cathedral ceiling and open floor plan enhances its spacious feel suitable for John Wayne’s tall stature. Banquet size dining room with a magnificent Mountain Views is suitable for family gatherings, entertainment, and special events. First floor Primary bedroom has privacy access to spacious kitchen, laundry room, and garage. Two bedrooms upstairs with bathroom and open loft entertainment room overlook the stately fireplace living area below. Dormer Bedroom provides Walk in Attic access. Home is decorated with John Wayne memorabilia, books, photos, paintings including the desk lamp from the sheriff’s office in True Grit. Replicas of Wayne’s trademark cowboy hats, scarf, money roll gun belt and vest hang in the home’s entry. The home presents a McClintock movie set flavor and is a true tribute to John Wayne’s memory. Owner has made a major investment in land improvements with regular cutting of seven fenced acres of horse pasture with 3 stall loafing shed and equipment room. Attached oversized Double Truck Garage and separate Workshop and don't forget the 1,415 sq ft unfinished basement.
