9 Bed Mountain Country Home
The peak-to-peak Continental Divide Mountain Range views at this home must be seen in person. This multigenerational home offers main level living, several bedroom/bathroom ensuites and spacious rooms for large gatherings. A naturally rich outer fills high windows and every room has a view. The designer kitchen also holds ample dining space. Situated within 2 hours of Denver, this turnkey home includes an RV-equipped large garage, workshop, smart-home technology and an adjacent land parcel.
Big Mountain Views in Peaceful Mountain Country
From inside to outside, the home features sweeping views of the Continental Divide Mountain Range. In fact, at least ten of the Colorado’s 14,000’ peaks starting with Mt. Shavano in the Sawatch Range through the Collegiate Peaks all the way up to the Decalibron can be observed. This home is centrally located between Breckenridge, Buena Vista and the front ranges of Colorado, with an abundance of public lands and forests all closeby.
Here, only the wildlife are likely to be your uninvited visitors due to the property being surrounded by privately owned, residences and ranches. Within a short drive, there are amazing outdoor opportunities that include the infamous Colorado “dream stream” fishing reservoirs: Tarryall Reservoir, Spinney Reservoir and Eleven Mile Canyon. There are also at least four State Wildlife Refuge Areas closeby: James Mark Jones, Tomahawk, Four Mile and Cline. World-class Breckenridge ski resort is also an easy day trip from this home. Mountain biking and wilderness camping is all available in nearby forests.
Enjoy peaceful sunrises and sunsets from the View Tower Suite that was designed to capture infinite views of the Continental Divide. The lofted suite functions as an art studio, a study, meditation room, or simply a quiet space to gaze at the wondrous wildlife. The View Tower Suite was a labor of love that used all repurposed materials from the original construction of the home.
Multiple Gathering Spaces for Entertaining
The great room is extraordinarily versatile with the 26’ vaulted ceiling, natural light at all times of day, fireplace, and unique balconies on the solid 14” lam beams. The extra wide front door and rear French doors make for easy access and terrific traffic flow no matter how large the group. The fireplace chase and hearth were installed with a manufactured fieldstone from Sunset Stone in Castle Rock, Colorado. The hog wire balcony was designed to complement the “lodge” feel and large picture windows for early morning light from the east and afternoon sun in the west.
The space is central to the flow and vision of the home being hospitable, accommodating, and relaxed. The kitchen boasts a huge prep space of a 45-square foot island, two sinks, two ultra-quiet steel-tubbed dishwashers, a smart, Wi-Fi enabled double oven (new Jan 2020), oversized electric cooktop (2017), and tons of cabinet space. The cabinets are Kemper Choice, soft-closing, solid maple and include two corner lazy-Susans, a spice and utensil pull-out (at cooktop), and appliance garage.

Between the bay doors, a 220-v RV plug is wired, as well as additional 30amp 220v outlets on the northeast and northwest corners for a welder or other high voltage equipment or EV station. Due to great ceiling height and spacious tandem and width parking spaces, multiple large vehicles can comfortably park inside the garage. The mud room is well designed as a transition space from the great outdoors into the interior space, just off the kitchen. The mudroom provides a half bathroom with optional hookups for laundry facilities.
