ABOUT THE LODGE (3,400 SQ. FEET AND FULLY FENCED)
Come stay and play at this unique beautiful custom-built mountain home! Situated on 3+ acres with 270 degrees views of the beautiful Pikes Peak mountain range and big rock outcrops, you are close to many attractions the area has to offer, yet far enough away from the “rat race” to really enjoy what a mountain vacation is all about. Enjoy the quaking Aspen, majestic Colorado blue spruce and the towering Ponderosa Pines of the surrounding area.
Built in 2004, this gorgeous home’s interior features include all the modern conveniences while maintaining the mountain rustic charm you would expect in Colorado. The high quality furnishings and decorative features have been specially selected throughout this lodge theme home.
Features include decorative metal and tongue and groove ceilings, stacked stone, natural slate and hardwood floors (with in-floor radiant heat) throughout. A fully equipped 500 sq. ft. gourmet kitchen is stunning with beautiful distressed alder cabinetry, Italian ceramic tile counter tops, double sinks and premium appliances all surrounding a huge multi-level center island with Boos butcher block. There is more than ample seating for the whole family to enjoy meals in the dining area that feature 20 feet of floor to ceiling windows with lots of light, beautiful scenery and one of the most gorgeous views of Pikes Peak in the area. The main living area boasts a floor to ceiling stacked rock fireplace and wood burning stove.
A king size, queen size and two twin beds provide sleeping accommodations for six people. All three bedrooms have private baths and an elegant powder room is available for your guests. Two baths include Jacuzzi jetted tubs, walk in showers and double sinks.
