Drive to the end of the quiet cul-du-sac in Silverthorne's finest neighborhood, and there you will find a magnificant three million dollar estate situated on an acre of wooded mountaintop. As you enter the impressive double doors and feast on one of many large Remington bronzes, your eyes will immediately be diverted to the great room with its 30 foot ceilings and huge, South facing windows showcasing the Raven golf course, Lake Dillon, and the magnificent mountains in the distance. If it's cold outside, you might rush to the woodburning fireplace and light a roaring bonfire! If anyone in your party is musically inclined, they can entertain on the Yamaha grand piano!
Though we have provided pictures of the estate, we urge you to access a virtual tour of the property. Simply go to www.slifersummit.com, type in property number U32586, and hit search. On the next screen below the picture of the home, hit details, and then hit virtual tour. The home is listed for sale at $3.0 million, but there simply is no market for homes this large and expensive. Thus, we expect to keep it as an occasional rental for the next few years.

The magnificent estate is located in the Three Peaks golf community, overlooking the Raven Golf course, the best mountain course in Colorado. Sitting at 9120 feet, the vistas are simply stunning. Besides the Raven, Keystone's River and Ranch courses, and the Breckenridge course are nearby. 30 minutes away, there are numerous Vail Valley courses as well.
Summit County offers world class skiing, the earliest in North America and usually the latest (many years we ski until July 4!) Within a few minutes of the estate are 5 ski resorts, Loveland, Arapahoe Basis, Keystone, Breckenridge, and Copper Mountain. About 30 minutes west is Vail, Beavercreek, and Arrowhead. Two hours away is Aspen. Colorado is renowned for its 'champagne powder', and the multitude of terrain will please beginners through experts!
For sailors, kayakers, fishermen, and pontoon boat cruisers, Lake Dillon's marina is 5 minutes away.
For fishermen, especially fly fishermen, the entire Summit county area is blessed with excellent trout fishing water in differing habitats. Running through the town of Silverthorne is the Gold Medal Blue River, and the Colorado River is a short drive away. Numerous fly shops offer float trips in the Blue, Colorado, Eagle, Roaring Fork, and Frying Pan rivers.
Year Purchased: 2003
About: I am a cable TV executive who retired in 2000 to live in the mountains. My wife and I are avid golfers, skiers, fishermen, hikers, bikers, and all around outdoors people who can enjoy all these activities at our doorstep.
Why Three Peaks: We built this home in 2003 and have enjoyed living in the mountains tremendously. However, as my wife and I are getting older, we are skiing less, and decided to purchase a home in Florida to spend part of the year. Thus, we have decided to lease our home to discerning individuals who would like to experience the best of the Colorado mountains, no matter what time of year.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate: We spent in excess of $3.0 million building this estate, and you will immediately notice the attention to detail. The kitchen was built for a gourmet chef, with top of the line appliances including rarely included items such as a warming oven, and sub-zero refrigerator drawers. Each of the 7 1/2 baths have unique tile work, and the large logs throughout the home add stately grandeur. The great room, with a 30 foot ceiling that showcases the spectacular views, also has a 20 foot log burning fireplace and a grand piano.
The National Forest begins 500 yards from the home, with great hiking trails in the summer, and snowshoeing in the winter. The nearby golf course offers cross-country skiing.
