Your quintessential Colorado dream home awaits you in Weldon Creek! This custom-built mountain contemporary home is located minutes away from downtown Salida and Monarch Mountain ski area. The 4100 square foot home is masterfully designed to highlight views of Mt. Shavano and Monarch Pass, from every room in the house. The home sits on 12 acres and borders BLM and the San Isabel National Forest on the western property line. The large kitchen with island/breakfast bar, alder cabinets, custom granite backsplash, and stainless-steel appliances is open to the living area creating a wonderful space for entertaining. The living room comes complete with a wood-burning fireplace, 28-foot beetle kill tongue and groove ceilings, and windows that seem to rise to the mountain tops. The master suite is your own private sanctuary. The master bath has a unique feature you won’t find every day—its own gas fireplace! A double-sided gas fireplace connects the master to a space that can be utilized as an office, yoga studio, or even a nursery. Topping off the master you have a private walkout to a secluded patio complete with 2 propane fire pits and a built-in stainless steel hot tub. You’ll likely see deer, elk, coyotes, and other abundant wildlife while taking in the Milky Way during an evening soak. The main level guest suite sits off the kitchen with a full bath and patio access giving guests privacy and space found during a luxury vacation. The second level includes a large loft perfect for a game room or library overlooking the great room and opens to a private deck. Two bedrooms, one with direct access to the deck, and a full bath round out the upstairs level. An oversized laundry room comes complete with granite counters, alder cabinets, a utility sink, and plenty of storage. The laundry room connects to the oversized 3-car garage. You won't have issues storing your toys, skis, and vehicles. Don't sit around dreaming... come LIVE!
