New in 2008, this 6000 square foot estate home is sited on three acres in the Colorado Rocky Mountain foothills, and has a 360 degree view from its many panorama windows. Raspberry Mountain, Mount Herman, and Elephant Rock are among the sights. Deer and foxes meander through the property's fields
and woods. The neighborhood is very quiet, and all the neighbors have custom houses on at least 2.5 acres.
The huge upstairs master suite has a gas fireplace, his and her sinks, walk in closet, and a two person jetted corner window tub. A recumbent bike is placed in the bedrooms turret, so one can overlook the eastern vistas while exercising. A second master is on the main level. There are two other spacious upstairs bedrooms.
Downstairs, oak floors cover the living room, formal dining, family room, eating area, and kitchen. The spacious family room, open to the kitchen and bay window breakfast area, has a raised stone wood burning fireplace. The living room features a vaulted ceiling with wooden beams and great mountain views out the huge windows. The formal dining room seats eight. The gourmet kitchen has slab granite counter tops and an island with all new stainless steel appliances, including two stoves. Most of the furniture is also new. It has a three car garage, large deck with a gas grill, and unfinished walkout basement.
Restaurants, grocery stores and shops are five minutes away, and the Air Force Academy is a 10 minute drive. Pike National Forest and Monument Preserve are within walking distance; both have many hiking, biking, and horse trails.
As our reviews demonstrate, there are many 'must-do' activities nearby, including visiting the U.S. Air Force Academy and Garden of the Gods (both free), and returning to the house after your day's activities should be very relaxing. If you like.
