This spectacular newly built custom barn wood mountain home has one of the best locations available, nestled between the entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park, and Winter Park Ski Resort. Built from the wood of an authentic Grand County farm barn, this luxurious mountain retreat has some of the best views in the area, as you look out towards the Continental Divide and down valley towards Lake Granby, providing fantastic scenery from every window. This 5 star rental is very unique, and has won several builder awards in the Grand County Parade of Homes.
Nestled in an Aspen forest, the large rear and front decks provide exceptional viewing for wildlife in all seasons. The decks also include wrought iron furniture, and a professional Charbroil gas grill. Huge picture windows face directly into the forest, allowing for a very private setting. This mountain home is also situated right next to the famous Fraser/Granby trail system, which runs all the way from Winter Park to Grand Lake, and provides first class biking, hiking, and snow shoeing. The Granby Ranch Resort is also right behind the neighborhood, providing fantastic downhill skiing, snowboarding, tubing, fishing, hiking, golf, and miles of mountain bike trails, with several running right nearby. The resort also has a great restaurant for lunch and dinner.
The home has extensive wood beams and ceilings throughout, including barn wood pedestals in the bathrooms, with authentic copper mining pans as sink basins. The chef’s kitchen includes slab granite counter tops, Frigidaire professional line appliances, with the stove/oven built right into a stone surround. The kitchen and dining room provides seating for 12, with the large dining table and counter areas. This 4 bedroom home also includes a large bunk room for 6, perfect for 2 families to share, and rustic custom furnishings and décor throughout. The beds are all top of the line, including a sleep number bed in the master bedroom. Beautiful gas fireplaces are located in the master (right next to the jetted tub) and living room, with blowers for additional heat. The huge loft area is great for family entertaining, with a large sectional, desk area with wireless printer, and a 60” flat screen TV with surround sound, DVD player with movies, and several board games.
The lower level has a large game room with arcade basketball, and a foosball table with a removable top that also provides mini pool, table tennis, bowling, hockey, shuffle board, and chess. Also included in this room is another sitting area with a 50” flat screen TV, and a Wii game console with several games, which will entertain the family for hours. A full bathroom and laundry/mudroom are located in the lower level as well. A new hot tub is available under the rear deck, which includes a custom lighting package for evening relaxation. There is even a place to hang your towels and robes nearby, with a heater right above.
The heating system for this mountain home is radiant in-floor heat with separate climate controls, so all the wood and tile floors are continuously warm, which feels great during the winter season. The home is also equipped with ceiling fans, to keep cool during the summer season. We have completely equipped the home for families as well, including iPod/iPad docking stations, toys, free high-speed wireless internet, bikes, sleds, booster chair with tray, and a portable crib.
Our family lives in Castle Rock, just south of Denver, and we love coming to Grand County. We have been to many resorts over the years, and Winter Park Resort/Granby Ranch are one of the best.
We chose Grand County because everything is right at your front door, including ice skating at the pond, snow tubing, hiking, scheduled entertainment, and all of the various shops and restaurants, plus the views are amazing.
We have included several additional upgrades to the units that the majority of rentals in the area don't offer, including iPod docking stations, Wii game console with several games, free wired and wireless high speed internet, board games, DVD player with several movies, full game room with arcade basketball, fooseball and several other games, high-end custom furnishings and décor throughout.
