Crestone house description

This tranquil 3BD/2BA home is nestled in the trees on several acres in the Sangre de Cristo mountains at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac that backs to a large open greenbelt. The magnificent views stretch from the forest to towering mountain peaks and out to the wide open San Luis Valley.

Our 2 story home has 2 bedrooms upstairs (1 with queen, 1 with 2 twin beds), and 1 bedroom downstairs (queen). The living room can accommodate two additional people, one on a floor futon and one on a small sofa that unfolds to a single bed. There are 2 bathrooms (one on each level) and the upstairs bath has a steam shower. It is a peaceful, beautiful home, nicely decorated, with an open floor plan and many outdoor areas to enjoy.

Sip your morning coffee on the downstairs deck watching deer wander through your backyard. In the evening, enjoy a glass of wine from the covered balcony, watching the sun set over the valley and the San Juan mountains. At night step out on the upstairs deck and have your breath taken away as you gaze at an infinity of stars above the mountain peaks. Later, take a steam shower and relax in front of the fire after cooking dinner in the open-floor plan gourmet kitchen.

Our home has everything you need to provide a relaxing, rejuvenating retreat, or to simply be your comfortable base camp from which to venture into the great outdoors.

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: We love the mountains and getting away from a busy life to recharge in nature.

                          Why the Owner Chose Crestone:
                          The first time we each came to Crestone we were overwhelmed by the serenity and the beauty. It just felt right to have a retreat in this magnificent place.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The best thing is the quiet, the mountains stretching all around as far as the eye can see. It is wonderful to look out the window and see deer walking by. Sometimes I just want to sit in front of the fire watching the natural world go by, without leaving the house. It is always wonderful to arrive and difficult to leave.
