Located just 4 miles from Winter Park on 3/4 acre, with breathtaking views of 13,000 ft Byers peak. Walk 30 steps beyond the driveway to catch the free shuttle to the town of Winter Park as well as the ski area.
This Custom home was built using a centuries-old construction technique called 'timberframing.' Timberframe construction is typified by its use of large, exposed beams and logs connected by handcrafted, mortise and tenon joinery. It has a rustic feel, yet, has all the modern amenities. It has a second family room in the basement that includes a big-screen tv with video games, DVD, stereo, etc, which is perfect for the kids while the adults enjoy the main floor great room, which includes 20 ft vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and a fully equipped media, audio center. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare that feast for your family and friends.
The surrounding area is a true Colorado gem, with over 600 miles of the best mountain biking and hiking trails. Walk to the fly fishing haven of the Fraser river or fish the headwaters of the Colorado River, just 25 miles away. Enjoy some of the country's most spectacular and challenging mountain golf courses. The winter is host to award-winning skiing and snow boarding at Mary Jane and Winter Park Resorts. The two areas spread across 5 mountains and 3,078 acres with 3,060 ft of vertical and an impressive 30 ft of snow per year. You can find terrain for everyone from the beginner to the most experienced adrenaline junky. Explore thousands of miles of snowmobile trails or make your own tracks in wide-open powder fields. You may choose from more exotic winter activities such as dog sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides, to a tranquil, relaxing spa visit at Devil's Thumb Resort. Get excercise by snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.
Our house is available for rent throughout the year. Call for availability and rates.
We chose to build in the Winter Park area because we enjoyed visiting so much as children. We believe it is the last of the true 'Colorado Mountain Resort Towns'. It has just enough amenities to accommodate most interests, while maintaining a mountain town feel. As soon as we reach the top of Berthoud Pass and view the great continental divide and the Fraser Valley below, our stress is lifted. Smell the fresh mountain air, scented with pine trees and you will understand why we enjoy the area so much. We hope you will as well.
Our house has the ideal layout for our family and friends. It has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with 2 complete family rooms. This allows us to enjoy the company of larger groups without feeling cramped. We love knowing that our kids are having fun in the basement family room playing, watching movies or playing video games, while the adults enjoy time together on the main floor. Mornings are a treat as the sun illuminates the 13,000 ft., snow-capped, Byers Peak framed by our large windows in the back of the house. The vaulted great room is accented by large wood beams and logs, giving you the feel of a true mountain getaway.
