2 W Montezuma

Cortez CO, 81321


Imagine yourself immersed back in time. It's the 1930's, the dust bowl is over, irrigation water is flowing into the City of Cortez from the aqueduct and the town is bustling with cattle ranchers, bankers, architects and entrepreneurs. The founding fathers designed Montezuma Ave. to be the center piece of our new 50 year old town as it is the highest point in the city limits. 2 West Montezuma was the second home built in the central block at the corner of Market St. and Montezuma Ave. This 4 Bedroom 2 Bath Tudor Revival style home is 1 of 2 homes of this architecture located on Montezuma Ave. The kitchen has been upgraded with higher end appliances and numerous upgrades and a high level of quality maintenance has embraced this home throughout the years. The roofing has recently been replaced with high quality shingles, ice and water shield membrane and switched heater tape that also warms the rear entry porch. There is elegant separate dining that is just off the kitchen with a view of the beautiful central fireplace in the living room that's covered with the original wood flooring. Upstairs are 2 Bedrooms and a bath plus a bonus room that makes a great office or playroom. This home is supported by a partial basement that is clean and dry and you'll see the quality work that was recently done replacing the sewer line. The current owner had a very high quality privacy fence constructed that creates an excellent private back yard with lush grass, shaded by large vine covered shade trees and irrigated by the automatic sprinkling system. There is off street parking in the detached garage that has a garage door opener and electrical power. As I stood in the front yard covered with crunchy leaves this fall, I was humbled by the grace of this home and I could just imagine myself in a time back then, staring out of the living room window watching Model A's drive by and listening to big band music on the Radio. Be the next of just a handful of people to own this important part of Cortez history.
