The towering trees that stand sentinel over the grassy meadow can tell the historic story of the stagecoach stopping to water the weary horses in the Wilsey Ditch while the riders talk of how nice it would be to have a cabin just on the edge of this meadow where you could watch the big horn sheep come down the mountain to graze.
Fast forward to 2013. That same stagecoach road is a driveway. The same ditch runs through the property. The same grassy meadow is still the salad bowl for big horn sheep, mountain goats, deer, and other wildlife. But now there is the riders’ dream cabin, BigHorn On The Wilsey. A 1300 SF, custom quality built, immaculate 3 bedroom, 2 bath home. Designer colors on the walls bring the outside in. Go to any window and it becomes a frame for the beauty of nature~tall pines, quaking aspen, willows, and astounding mountain views. The shady front porch is the place to relax on a hot summer day. A leisurely walk down the drive yields a view of the Wilsey Ditch and grassy meadows. A plethora of wildlife drink from the ditch. The bighorn sheep viewing meadow is on the other side of the drive. While everyone else parks their vehicles for a few moments hoping to see bighorn sheep, you will have a front row seat to the mountains they traverse in order to reach the meadows. The cabin and its 2 acres are surrounded on 3 sides by USFS. No neighbors in sight. No noise. 100% nature.
