The Redlands Mesa Golf Course community was the premier neighborhood when it was first developed and brought to market almost two decades ago, and it remains one of the premier neighborhoods in Grand Junction. Every home is unique and custom, and every view is spectacular.
The golf course consistently ranks as one of the best in the state, and the clubhouse and restaurant reopened in early March after a renovation. This is not a community that rests on its laurels, but rather, is one that continually seeks to give golfers and residents a top-notch experience and lifestyle.
The neighborhood is a great destination for those who love to play golf, and it’s also for those who want a lock-and-leave lifestyle with a low-maintenance yard, as the development was the first in the area to require a water-wise, xeric landscape in the front. Sunday morning tranquility isn’t disturbed by the roar of lawnmowers, since the turf at Redlands Mesa is confined to the golf course greens, not the neighbor’s side yard next to your bedroom window.
Homes like this week’s featured property at 358 High Desert Road have landscape that blends in well with the high desert surroundings, with shrubs, flowering perennials and smaller trees that don’t require much water or maintenance to thrive. The home at High Desert, like many of the other Redlands Mesa homes, also makes the most of dramatic rocks and boulders and has a great fire pit in the backyard overlooking the golf course.
As much as this home has to offer outside, it’s the interior of this home that gives it such great value. Built into the side of a slope, the home has all of the main living on the upper floor. With more than 5,500 square feet of living space on both floors, the home has more than enough room for a family, entertaining, hobbies or even multiple generations.
The kitchen is perfect for gourmet chefs, with a five-burner dual-fuel stainless steel range, along with the convenient pot-filler on the wall behind the stove top. Other appliances are also stainless and are all top of the line. A spacious walk-in pantry, along with plenty of other storage and work spaces, make it a great functioning kitchen, while the granite countertops, custom ceiling, cabinetry and wood flooring make it a great looking kitchen. There’s an informal eating space in the kitchen, as well as a separate formal dining room.
The kitchen looks out over the living room, which has enormous windows that bring in the great golf course and Grand Mesa views. A fireplace separates the living room from the formal dining room.
There are two additional bedrooms upstairs, in addition to the master suite, and each bedroom has a walk-in closet and private bath.
The master suite has access to the upper patio and also enjoys fabulous views of the golf course and Grand Mesa. The room has a gas fireplace, and the five-piece master bath has an enormous walk-in shower with double shower heads.
Because no one wants to schlep laundry up and down the stairs, the house has two laundry areas, with the bigger laundry room upstairs, and a smaller laundry area downstairs, where there is an additional bedroom suite.
The lower level is enormous, and could easily be either the home base for older parents, or the home base for some entertaining memories. The wet bar could easily be an entire kitchen, as it already has a sink, refrigerator, microwave and plenty of storage. There’s also a separate wine cellar next to the bar area. A game room is large enough to accommodate a pool table, and there’s also space for an office area and a grand piano on the lower level. A theater room with a projector and drop-down screen make it a great place for watching movies or sports.
There are various levels of club memberships at Redlands Mesa, and the listing agent, Alyssa Roberts with Christian Brothers Realty, is willing to offer a one-year golf membership to buyers who come with acceptable offers.
Roberts is listing this unique golf course home for $1,295,000, and the sellers welcome all reasonable offers.
