Property description

Colorado at its best! Relax and enjoy our unique home built around an historic 1890's log cabin in the townsite of Eldora. In 2005 our home was lovingly remodeled & expanded. Impeccable craftsmanship & high quality materials have been blended into the original cabin adding in modern comforts while retaining its old mountain charm.

Featuring barn wood kitchen cabinets, bamboo floors, reclaimed cypress beams and unique, cozy sunroom offering expansive views up and down the Eldora Valley. Large master suite with French doors, sauna, jetted tub and steam shower. Great views from master of Eldora Ski Resort and the mountains beyond.

With breathtaking views from every window, a river running through the Eldora valley floor, national forest surrounding our home, and the Indain Peaks Wilderness Area entrance less than 1/2 mile away, you too can experience one of the world's best kept secrets!

With spring/summer comes great hiking and mountain biking right from our home. During the autumn months the foliage is amazing with aspen trees surrounding our property ablaze in Fall color makes any outdoor activity an exquisite experience. During the winter months the snowfall makes for numerous activities just outside our door such as snowshoeing, backcountry skiing, sledding and of course Alpine, Telemark, and Nordic skiing at Eldora Ski Resort. (5 minute drive from our home...OR with skins on your skis, the hearty can actually ski to the front or back chair lifts directly from our door!)

**Please have 4WD or AWD to park at upper parking area for our home during the winter months.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I'm a mechanical engineer by training and trade, and I've been working in the Aerospace industry for the last 25 yrs. designing satelites and scientific instruments for astronomers, climate scientists, and earth remote sensing. I love to ski, climb, run, bike, hike or do just about anything else in the mountains and wildernesses of the world whenever I can. I've been lucky enough to travel the world often for work and adventure, and fortunate enough to have my health and good friends to meet some incredible people and experiences along the way. I have a 7 yr. old daughter who is the love of my life and is constantly pushing me towards and reminding me of the priorities and balance I'd like to someday hoepfuly attain and have enough time left to maintain in this wonder we know as life.

Why the Owner Chose Nederland:
Having experienced the wild and natural beauty of the Eldora valley when I was a college student at CU, I always felt a pull to return to the area and wake up to the sound of the nearby river and the views of the mountain every morning. Often, after either a day hike, bike or ski, I would drive through the Eldora valley looking at the mountain homes and imagining what it would feel like to call one of them 'home'! Then, by chance, a home that I/we had always been quite fond of came on the market just when I was ready to buy. Within a month I was moving in just as the surrounding Aspen trees were at the peak of their Fall Aspen glow and glory! Heaven on earth! Now I run it as a VRBO rental for others to enjoy too.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Perfect silence, gentle wind through the forest, elk slowly meandering through our land, mama fox and her kits playing on the rocks during the early morning hours, black bear on the deck looking for the hummingbird feeder for a sweet snack, the agility, speed and beauty of the hummingbirds flitting furiously during the summer, lulling sound of the river during the spring melt and on through the summer, the night sky kissed with star brilliance everywhere, the rare sighting of our local bobcat calmly and quietly walking along the snow covered ridge, the moose family in the meadow, a chance to observe, appreciate and simply be a part of it all.
