This spectacular log home is located on a sunny, south-facing site overlooking the fourth hole of Raven Golf Club in the prestigious Eagle's Nest Golf Community. From the first glimpse of this magnificent home nestled in the aspen groves, it creates an impression of warm, comfortable, Colorado style. The attractive appearance on the outside provides a preview of the high quality and outstanding amenities on the inside.
This dramatic, well-appointed, custom home provides a luxurious mountain retreat for our discriminating guests. The design evokes the feeling of the great National Park Lodges, yet feels warm, cozy and comfortable for gatherings of family and friends. Our home incorporates state-of-the-art design features, high-quality materials and finishes, premium appliances and plumbing fixtures, state-of-the-art home electronics and four-star resort-quality amenities.
The Great Room and Dining Area: As you enter the home, the log-walled entry vestibule/sitting room opens up through a pair of wide French doors into the dramatic (25-foot high) Great Room and dining area with its floor-to-ceiling masonry fireplace, open vaulted log and timber ceiling, and rustic walnut floors. The large windows and doors open up to the south-facing deck and the spectacular golf course and mountain views beyond. A dramatic log truss, log posts, and wrought iron and wood railings further add to the drama and character. The Great Room also features a mini-bar for convenient entertaining.
The Kitchen: The gourmet kitchen is adjacent to and connected with the Great Room and functions well as the social center of the home as well as a great working kitchen. It features glazed maple cabinets, granite countertops and two prep areas--each with a sink, disposal and generous counter space. The kitchen island and curved granite breakfast bar provide extra seating for seven. A mini-bar off of the Great Room has an ice maker and under-counter refrigerator beneath decorative glass doors and shelves for stemware. The kitchen appliances include a 48-inch, (six burners and griddle) Wolf gas cook-top, separate full size Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer, Wolf double convection ovens, warming drawer, a Sharp convection microwave and two Asko dishwashers.
The Loft: A generous loft above the kitchen provides additional secluded space with an office retreat, a reading room and additional sleeping space for guests (two queen sleeper sofas).
The Lower Level: The lower walk-out level features a family entertainment area that includes a pool table, a big screen home theater/music listening area, a complete bar with seating and an historic oak back bar. A lower deck offers great southerly views of the golf course and the continental divide, and provides shade and weather protection for year-round access to the spa/hot tub.
The Master Suites and Bedrooms: The home features two generous Master Suites with separate steam showers, jetted tubs and double sinks in maple vanities (one on each level). An outdoor spa/hot-tub (seats eight) is located outside the lower level master suite. A stairway connects to the spa from the main level master as well. A third master suite convenient for guests is located just off the Great Room on the main level. Two additional bedrooms and three full bathrooms are located on the lower level.

About the owner: Margaret and I have our primary home in Denver and use our log home for a home base while we pursue a variety of our favorite recreational activities (like golf or skiing) with friends in the beautiful Rocky Mountains.
Why the Owner Chose Eagles Nest: I had a lifelong interest in building a home and became interested in log construction while working in a number of National Parks throughout the west. We had the lot in the established neighborhood of Eagles Nest which we purchased many years earlier. I designed the home to achieve a sensitive fit on the land and to take advantage of the beauty of the lot and the setting. It is sited to maximize the spectacular views and capture the abundant sunshine available at this prime location in Summit County.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The hand crafted log home style gives it a unique, warm and cozy feel while offering generous spaces comfortable for large or small gatherings of family and friends. The home is very dramatic with its 25ft ht log ridge and truss in the great room. The home has a warm and inviting ambiance throughout yet each room has its own character and feel. It has amazing amenities and quality built-in and has a rich mix of old and newer custom made furnishings. The diverse collection of art and decorative objects compliments the overall decor. The location is central to all of the great things Summit County has to offer including the ski areas of Copper Mountain (our personal favorite), Keystone, and Breckenridge. The large mahogany deck faces south and overlooks the 4th hole of the Raven at 3 Peaks golf course with views of Mount Baldy, the Continental Divide and the Keystone Ski slopes beyond.
