Never before has there been a property that combines an architecturally sophisticated contemporary home with top of the line equestrian facilities and expansive, irrigated flat acreage, all while being surrounded by private and scenic BLM land - yet just minutes removed from charm and conveniences of Basalt. This incredible 37-acre horse property features panoramic views of Basalt Mountain and The Crown and provides access to thousands of acres of horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking trails and hunting right out your back door. The 5,000 square foot, 4 bedroom main house was built in 2015 by Doug Hayes and designed by Doug Rager with award winning, ultra-high energy efficiency in mind and had been deemed the ''most efficient house of it's size'' by CORE. It was designed for solar gain and has high-efficient, floor-to-ceiling windows. Other green features include: passive solar, LED Lutron lighting, smart thermostats and double insulation. If that's not enough, the living room features an actual 'living wall' which is both acoustically functional and aesthetically pleasing. The exterior features spaces and inviting outdoor spaces to take in the meticulously maintained landscaping, swimmable pond, and multiple waterfalls, all strategically placed to be audible from all areas of the home.
Hollyhock Farms was purchased in late 2014 when the property consisted of a 1-bedroom bungalow, 2-bedroom cabin, hay barn and equipment barn - all of which have since been extensively renovated. The main house, new horse barn, and indoor & outdoor riding arenas were built in 2015-16 and outfitted with top of the line ranch infrastructure and features too innumerable to list. The new barn consists of 4 stalls, wash stall with infrared heater, grain room, heated tac room/office, large storage attic and a fire suppression system. The multiple horse pastures are fully fenced and irrigated from the Home Supply Ditch water rights. Each pen and pasture is equipped with a frost-free automatic horse watering system for year around convenience. Simply put, Hollyhock Farms is a rare and exceptional Masterpiece!
