Property description

In the early 1990's, the Estess family of Houston, Texas bought this breathtaking, beautiful waterfront lot on Sun Valley Lake, on the western edge of Rocky Mountain National Park, three miles north of Grand Lake Village, Colorado. After years of dreaming of the wonderful vacation home we would build there, we worked with an architect to design and build this lovely lakefront home.

The striking two-story design blends into the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside, and includes hand-hewn pine logs, many large windows showcasing the scenic lake views, a covered patio, a covered porch and an open deck. Interior features include a Kiva fireplace, hardwood floors, a large kitchen with all of the modern amenities, 3 full bathrooms with a jacuzzi tub in the master bath, and a laundry room. The home is lovingly furnished with Southwestern style décor, and will sleep up to 8 people comfortably.

Estess Keepsake was officially opened in May, 2005.

A dream home away from home, Estess Keepsake welcomes you with 2,700 square feet of living space, that offers everything you could possibly need to enjoy the perfect vacation.

The covered porch, covered patio and open deck with large gas outdoor grill and picnic table provide ample opportunities to get away from it all, absorb the quiet beauty of the lakefront view and mountain vistas. Motors are prohibited on Sunset Valley Lake, allowing you to watch the local wildlife in the serenity of it's natural habitat, undisturbed.

In cold weather, you can continue to enjoy the view from the warmth and comfort inside the home through the large windows in the living room, dining room and kitchen that face the lake. The great room is kept warm and cozy by an attractive and easy-to-use Kiva fireplace that utilizes gas logs.

The house is now equipped with hi-speed Internet for your convenience.

The kitchen has a convenient breakfast bar on the central island, and is equipped with all of the modern amenities, including a trash compactor.

In addition to the open floor plan of the main living area, there is also a private sitting room with three couches that is equipped with cable TV, VCR and DVD player so the whole family can enjoy their favorite shows and movies. A game table and games are also provided. The sitting room has a complete lakeview and opens to the covered patio for ease of entertaining.

The master bedroom is also equipped with private cable TV, VCR and DVD, as well as a king-size bed and windows that open up to allow in the fresh air. The large master bath includes a shower, dual vanities, and relaxing jacuzzi tub.

The guest suite has a queen-size bed and a private bath, and there is a third bedroom with double bed and bunks and a bathroom across the hall, that is perfect for the younger members of the family. Two couches can also be converted into single beds for additional guests.

In all, there are accommodations to sleep 8 people comfortably, and three full bathrooms providing bathtubs and showers, as well as a powder room. There is no need to wait in line for restroom access.

Finally, there is also a laundry room for your convenience, and there are telephones both upstairs and downstairs with an answering machine so you can stay in touch.

We invite you to experience your vacation in the ultimate comfort and convenience provided by Estess Keepsake.
