Tari Horse Farm has been well-maintained and thoughtfully-improved for both horse and rider, with living spaces including a 4-bedroom, 2 ½ bath Victorian-era main residence that has been tastefully renovated, a 1 bed, 1 bath guest house (aka “The Icehouse”), and a separate office with attached ranch manager apartment. A 5-car garage detached garage sits nearby. The graceful main home features a gourmet kitchen, hardwood floors, a master suite with marble bathroom and private balcony, radiant heating and cooling, and a granite fireplace. The grounds beside the residence are dotted with fruit trees and large, mature landscaping, as well as verdant gardens and a large water feature with koi and a serenity pond.
Equestrian spaces are highlighted, first, by the classic red stallion barn, with its large paddock and double foaling stall and separate vet clinic and wash rack. A second barn houses 10-stalls with turnouts and is connected to a third metal hay barn that measures 48’ x 120’.
The stately farm entry is lined with white panel fencing, which also attractively delineates the numerous pastures, paddocks, and riding areas.
Tari Horse Farm is located in the Colorado River Valley, west of Glenwood Springs, where it sits at a wonderfully moderate elevation of 5,500 feet, so it partakes of both the mountains surrounding it to the east, north, and south, and the high desert to the west. This region averages 260 days of sunlight per year. High temperatures in the summer can reach 90° and January lows can drop to 10°. The average lows in January are in the mid 20s and the average highs in July are in the mid 70s. The climate here is arid, averaging 12 inches of rain and 39 inches of snow per year. The dry temperature makes both summer heat and winter cold more tolerable. But best of all, since Tari Horse Farm is located in western Colorado below the headwaters of several streams, melting high country snows supply the area with bountiful irrigation water.
Tari Horse Farm is located in the pastoral and idyllic Peach Valley, a rural area of farms and ranches that sits between New Castle and Silt, CO, along the main stem Colorado River at the western edge of the Rocky Mountains. Peach Valley has long benefitted from its moderate climate and elevation (5,500 feet), reliable irrigation water, and convenient access to I-70, which parallels the Colorado River here and allows for Tari Horse Farm denizens to easily access places like Denver to the east or Grand Junction to the west. Shopping, a hospital, and a burgeoning restaurant scene are only 15 minutes to the east on I-70 in Glenwood Springs, where the famous hot springs pool is also located for healing weary post-ride bodies. Aspen and Vail are both about an hour drive. Airport choices include Eagle/Vail (45 min), Aspen (1 hour), and Grand Junction (1 hour), with a terrific private airport also in Rifle, just 15 minutes away.
