Escape to the simplicity and solitude of mountain living at this gracious retreat in Illium Valley. Bordered by USFS and 15 minutes of Telluride & Mountain Village, the mountain modern farmhouse and improvements are nestled into 20+ acres directly across from the South Fork of the San Miguel River/Nature Conservancy's South Fork Preserve, known for fishing, hiking & birding. This private river valley retreat has a reclaimed timber 2-bedroom farmhouse with classically modern interiors, comfortable living spaces and open floor plan. The main level opens to a stunning entertaining courtyard surrounded by mature aspens, pines and irrigated perennial gardens. Adjacent to the home are raised organic garden beds, flagstone pathways, a hilltop firepit, and hiking trails leading into the forest.
