Everyone Talks About This Grand Junction Colorado Home
Sooner or later everyone asks the question, "What's up with that stone house on Orchard Mesa?" It sticks out like a sore thumb. In recent years it has become harder to spot due to the thick shrubbery planted around the yard's perimeter.
History On This Grand Junction Colorado House
According to Realtor.com, this home at 2702 B 1/2 Road was built in 1908. You'll immediately notice the amazing stonework. I drive by this house several times a day, and for as long as I can remember, it's been a single-family dwelling.
The Word Is Out
This property first appeared on Realtor.com over 200 days ago. Within a matter of minutes, word of its sale blew up on social media. At that time, the asking price was $995,000.
This house really is magnificent. According to Realtor.com, the property features:

When was the last time you heard of a price actually getting lower? Right here, right now, I'm actually afraid to open my Xcel bill. It's sitting on my desk, haunting me, tormenting me with images too unbearable to mention.
Just when I thought we were all going to have to go out and get third and fourth jobs, along comes this bit of good news. While $899,900 is a big chunk of money, it's certainly better than $995,000.
As I Always Say...
I am not a realtor, am not affiliated with the listing agent or any other realtors, and have no interest in this property. Put simply, this awesome house caught my eye at Realtor.com, and I couldn't help but think you might be interested as well.
