Hot Idaho Springs, Log, Creek frontage & Backs to Forest Service land! Charming log cabin in a great location just outside of Historic Idaho Springs. It sits on a beautiful, gently sloped lot surrounded by aspen trees and gets good sunlight. The lot backs up to thousands of acres of Forest Service land. Chicago Creek runs along the front edge of the property and there is enough room for a creek side sitting area. The log home has a rock and concrete foundation and the home seems to be very solid. The wood floors are beautiful and the large windows let nature in. The open kitchen has wood cabinets, good light, huge windows and opens to the dining & living rooms. The living room has two large picture windows and a stone fireplace with insert. Both bedrooms are good size and have vaulted ceilings. The full bathroom is good size, is partially updated. This home has many nice features but does need some work: There are some plumbing repairs that need to be done, the septic system will need to be upgraded and the garage needs a new roof. This home is outside of city limits and would make a great Aribnb or VRBO rental. This home is all about the Colorado lifestyle! Enjoy historic mountain towns, hiking, biking, skiing, rafting, fishing, local bistros, brew pubs, galleries, casinos, zip-lining, ATV & 4WD trails and much more all within a short drive. The garage will serve as basecamp for all your adventure gear. Just 35 min to the metro area, 30 minutes to skiing, 1.15 hr. to the airport and within 1 hour of 7 world class ski areas. This is a Cash only, fix up Property.
