Mesa Cortina house description

Located in the heart of Summit County, discover the beauty of Colorado's pristine mountains, rivers, lakes and wonderful people.

With views of Lake Dillon and mountain peaks, the house has great views of Buffalo Mountain off the front deck porch swing and Keystone Ski Resort off the double decks in the back with ourdoor jacuzzi that seats 8.

This 4000 square foot home has five bedrooms, including a main-level master suite with king bed and dual sinks in attached bath. Upstairs there is a spacious full bath and two bedrooms, one with a large queen (views of Keystone) and one with a set of twins (with a deck that faces Buffalo Mountain). In walk out basement level, there is a full bath and two bedrooms- double bed in one room and a set of twins in the other. All bedrooms come wih luxury linens and down comforters. One more queen sofa is also available which allows you to sleep a total of 12 people comfortably.

With five bedrooms spanning three floors, there is plenty of room for multiple families or couples while still feeling like privacy is maintained and not 'over-crowded.'

Located 3 houses down from the national forest trailhead, you may want to go on a hike in the summer to enjoy a picnic or a cross country/ snow shoeing adventure in the winter.

This house is less than 15 minutes drive from three major ski resorts- Copper Mtn, Keystone and Breckenridge, two minutes to the extensive shopping at the Silverthorne Outlet Mall and local dining. Sleeding can be done locally in our neighborhood or at the Frisco Nordic Center.

This home has two seperate living areas - perfect for adults upstairs and the kids downstairs. Both living areas have multiple couches/chairs with large flat screen TV/DVD players and movie/book library (adult and kid variety). The upstairs living area also has a gas fire place. The gourmet kitchen has brand new stainless steel appliances (frig, oven, d/w & microwave) and is well equiped with all 'foodie' preparation devices (blender, crockpot, mixer, cookbooks and all gadgets). The dining table comfortably seats 8-10. There is a large gas grill located off the main floor back deck (with table & chairs for outdoor dining). Connecting the two car garge to the kitchen is a large mudroom for skis/hiking boots and plenty of hooks for jackets etc. There is also a second fridge for beer/wine storage.

Our eight person hot tub is located off the back lower level deck. It offers beautiful views of Keystone, Lake Dillon and surrounding peaks. A full size laundry room and an office with accessible computer (house has high speed wireless internet) and crib is also located on the lower level.

Parking can comfortably accomodate 5 cars and snow plowing service is included. We can provide information on catering/home chef services if interested.

This house is located at the very top of Mesa Cortina and feels very private and off the beaten path. The only vehical traffic is from local house owners. This more than anything provides a very peaceful escape from our fast-paced lives.
