Welcome to “Fort Flag” Mountain Retreat with Income Potential! 224 N San Juan Avenue, known as “Fort Flag,” is located in the heart of Buena Vista. This unique property includes two log cabins — a cozy main house that is 2074 sq ft and a separate accessory dwelling unit (ADU) that is 483 sq ft. The property has only had 2 owners in its 100-year history and is ready for its next owner. Originally, the property was owned by one of the town’s first rural physicians, Dr. Green and the name Fort Flag was coined by him. The Big House was originally a single-story cabin and was built in 1922. The dining room was added in the 1950s, and then in the 1990s the kitchen and second story were added. Featuring two spacious bedrooms on the main floor, an expansive loft as the third bedroom, and two and a half bathrooms, this property offers ample space for relaxation and comfort. The beautiful, hand-built stone fireplace in the living room greets you as you walk through the front door, and offers the perfect ambiance. Entertaining is ideal in the kitchen and large dining room, perfect for hosting gatherings with friends and family alike. Enjoy the well-manicured outdoor space with beautiful cottonwood, apple, and lilac trees. The lush green yard includes a gorgeous stacked stone wall and complete landscaping. Take advantage of the back porch with a wood stove fireplace on cool nights year-round. The stand-alone ADU is known as the Little Cabin or 213 N Pleasant. It was fully renovated in 2018 and offers an excellent opportunity for rental income or accommodating guests. The little cabin has a living room, a full kitchen, one bed, one bath, and a private stone patio. Take advantage of the convenient location within walking distance of downtown Buena Vista, where you can explore historical sites, listen to live music and enjoy McPhelemy Park. This is your opportunity to live your mountain dream, recreate, and enjoy nature. Schedule your showing today and let the adventure begin!
