Imagine postcard views from every window of this custom designed and built 4 BR home. The Collegiate Range, Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Buffalo Peaks, and a pine and aspen forest along Cottonwood Creek provide an exceptional setting for this 4,600 sq ft home. Welcome your guests under a timber-frame portico and bring them into the dramatic entry foyer with 18’ barrel ceiling that is perfectly centered on Mt. Princeton. The adjoining great room has a 3’ x 4’ wood-burning fireplace with sandstone hearth; the wall of windows is anchored by Mt. Princeton and surrounding peaks. Arches and half-walls enhance the open floor plan. The gourmet kitchen is designed for entertaining with space for 3-4 people to be involved in food-prep and conversation. The main floor office with double “French doors” is spacious enough to accommodate two desks, a credenza, and sitting area. Three decks, two of which are timber-frame style, are situated to take advantage of dramatic mountain views and provide a magical setting for friends and family to gather – or to just contemplate the surrounding beauty. The newly painted master suite includes an intimate gas fireplace, a contemporary soaking tub and an oversized walk-in shower with a window overlooking Cottonwood Creek. The 1,600 sq ft finished lower (Garden) level includes two ensuite bedrooms, a great room, and wine room. The 1,400 sq ft unfinished portion provides substantial storage space, room to expand, and a steam-room with shower accommodating 4 people. Other features that provide convenience and comfort: a three-car oversized attached garage with easy access shallow steps, whole house central vacuum system, whole house attic fan, ceiling fans in main level bedrooms, in-floor radiant heat on both levels with 9 zones, and a half bath between the laundry room and the kitchen. Closing to be on or after July 30, 2021. The adjacent lot, Lot 21, is available at a discounted price of $135,000.
