Private Homes, Ski Ranches house description

This stunning log home is nestled privately amidst aspen and spruce at 9700 just 20 scenic minutes from Telluride and 10 minutes from the Telluride Ski Area parking in Mountain Village. From the comfort of the cozy interior or from a lounge on the spacious wrap around deck, youj will bask in the views of Sunshine Peak , Wilson Peak and Dallas Peak. You are sure to see deer and elk wandering regularly through the property.

Imagine your ascent to this home along well-plowed winter roads. At the corner of Skunk Creek Rd and Mt. Wilson Way, you will turn into a plowed driveway. Drop your luggage just inside the door and explore your new home away from home.

On the entry level, you will find a large foyer, a laundry room with full sized washer and dryer, a large bedroom with two twin beds, and a lovely bedroom with a queen sized bed and a beautiful burl bench. The home's second television/DVD/VCR entertainment center is also located in a common area on this level. There is a full bath here as well, situated off the hall between the bedrooms.

Now, up the stairs. Natural light floods through the large picture windows, washing over the dining and living room areas. A pass-through fireplace stands at the ready in the center of the room, well stocked with wood and matches. A well-appointed kitchen with granite countertops sits off to the right. The top of the line stove easily converts to an indoor grill if it is too chilly to use the grill on the deck. A coffee grinder, coffee maker, tea kettle, microwave, and dishwasher offer all of the comforts of home, and more. There is also a study on this floor that contains not only a sofa bed but a desk and printer. A 3/4 bath is situated off the study. And how about that view! Can't you just see yourself now on that roomy sofa, surrounded by mountain vistas, the fireplace blazing, and a good movie or football game on the flatscreen?

Our tour continues up to the next stair landing to the private master suite oasis that occupies the entire third floor. Can you imagine waking up in that comfortable bed to a window view full of Colorado turquoise sky and aspen? The master bath is complete with dual sinks, shower, and tub. Plenty of towels will be found here as in every bathroom.

The decor hints of clean-lined Italian sensibilities and you will see the classic southwestern lodge style and Native American art. Quiet, understated elegance greets you in every room. Shelves of books are scattered throughout the house and a stack of games can be found in a downstairs bedroom. There is plenty of room and storage space for all of your gear.

This beautiful house may lure you away from the outdoors, but once you are motivated to leave there is hiking right out the front door. Should you need to drive much on the snowier days, a four-wheel drive vehicle is certainly recommended, while front wheel drive will work well on milder winter days. Relaxing on the deck, enjoying the ambiance of a crackling fire and a wonderful meal, or preparing to shop, hunt, ski, or fish - this is the perfect launch spot for your vacation.

See you on the slopes!
