Nestled in the cottonwood trees, in a yard with a place for a pond, & watered by a 500 foot deep artesian well, this is the historic Willow Springs home. Built in 1910 & originally, when trains ran through Moffat, operated as the Forbes Hotel, this historic home is steeped in local history. The property is zoned for both commercial & residential use. It will serve as a large residence, or as a business location with many possibilities. The building has fiber optic internet service! It is only a few blocks from State Hwy 17, and situated on the quiet east edge of town with beautiful views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The property spans 2.67 acres, encompassing an additional 29 town lots, mostly to the east on the open far side of Broadway. This land could be developed or left as a green space protecting mountain views. Downstairs are two living areas, a large dining room, kitchen with commercial grade cookstove, walk-in pantry, 2 refrigerators, large laundry room, a bedroom & bath. Upstairs are 8 bedrooms & 2 additional bathrooms. This singular property has original wood floors, doors, molding & antique light fixtures. The upstairs bedrooms are plumbed for sinks. Four of the original cast iron sinks are still in place. Two high-efficiency forced-air furnaces were installed in 2019 (1 on each level) along with double-pane windows installed throughout. Insulation was enhanced & electrical improvements were made at that time also. The metal roof is in excellent condition. On the grounds is a pond area with a newer rubber lining. The well permit allows for filling the pond, watering for livestock, and household uses. An original 4-seater outhouse now used for storage, & a large metal building (damaged from fire) previously used as a shop & art space, complete the property. This is a great opportunity well situated between the town of Crestone, the Sand Dunes, & 3 hot springs resorts, Willow Springs is ripe for its next incarnation! Let your dreams fly!
