About the Property

Estate, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Nearly new spacious 5250 square foot custom vacation home atop 52 acres in the Rocky Mountains! A wonderful family retreat and one of the most tranquil places in the world. Enjoy dinner outdoors on the balcony overlooking magnificent views of the Gunnison Valley, layers and layers of mountain peaks as well as a forest filled with prolific trees. Relax and take pleasure in the awe-inspiring views out of every window throughout the house. It is like you are on top of the world, nestled in the middle of paradise. Local caretaker available to assist with your needs!

The home's amenities include a theatre room (with sattellite television and XBOX); giant chess set; telescope; arts and crafts room; small library stocked with local books; closet filled with board games; and arcade room with television, game table, air hockey, pinball, skee ball, full-sized, upright console that houses classic arcade games and a jacuzzi on the balcony looking out at Whetstone Mountain.

As you drive through the forest and approcah our front porch, your mind will wander as you feel relaxation setting in and visualize yourself on the rocking or swinging chair enjoying the outdoors and local wildlife.

Welcome into our beautiful vacation home via a grand entry with a custom made staircase made from local timbers and antique pieces.

The children's desire is to run to the right of the entry to the Arcade Room. Inside they will find Skee Ball, a pinball machine, air hockey game, game table for poker or other card games, arcade console, television, queen sofa bed and full mini kitchen which includes a refrigerator, sink, plates, glasses, dishwasher and microwave oven. The Arcade Room has its own private balcony and jacuzzi. This authentic game room may be the reason your children ask to keep coming back each year!

If you proceed straight down the hallway from the entry you will encounter the theatre room to the right, the guest room to the left and two children's rooms further ahead.

The Theatre Room allows the whole family to sit together, crank up the sound system and watch movies on DVD, sattellite television, Pay Per View or play with the XBOX or Play Station gaming systems. Another heaven for children.

The guest room contains a queen bed with its own private full bathroom and balcony looking out at Mount Crested Butte.

The two children's rooms are layed out as follows: bedroom 1) has a bunk bed and pull out trendel to sleep three people and a full private bathroom and bedroom 2) has a queen bed with a full private bathroom.

To the left of the entry way you will find a second entry to the house via a mudroom.

The mudroom allows access to the two car heated garage which is big enough to park trailers if desired and a full laundry room that contains storage, a laundry shoot from upstairs, sink, washer and dryer. Outside the laundry room window is a beautiful view of Mount Crested Butte.

Climbing the stairs to the second floor you will see spectacular views from every window. At the top of the stairs, you will enter the Great Room with a large fireplace and panoramic views of the Crested Butte Valley. This Great Room is comparable to what you would find in a 5 star hotel ski lodge.

The Great Room possesses a telescope to enlarge the views or to look to the sky, a large scale chess set overlooking the Skyland area and a stereo system with an Ipod that contains over 10,000 songs. The music system can be played throughout the house and the volume adjusted in each room. Or you may simply cuddle up on the couch, or in a comfy chair, and read a book with a raging fireplace or on the expansive balcony while watching the sun set over the mountains! The room also offers original artwork of the famous American painter Charles Wysocki.

The balcony off the Great Room has a BBQ and picnic table so the family can enjoy a beautiful outdoor dinner or happy hour. At night, you must enjoy the shooting stars that appear right above your head through the telescope or even the naked eye.

Off of the Great Room and to the right at the top of the stairs is the Arts and Crafts Room that can also be used as a fifth bedroom The room has a double bed with a pullout trendel bed, craft table, chairs and lighting to allow one to take pleasure in their hobbies late into the night. The room also has beautiful french doors that open up onto a private balcony looking out at Whetstone Mountain.

At the top of the stairs is the dining area. This oval table allows maximum dialogue by allowing all parties to contribute to the conversation. The table has the capacity for twelve people to enjoy dinner together.

Immediately past the dining area is the gourmet kitchen. This elaborate kitchen was designed for a gourmet chef and maximum efficiency. The kitchen contains a Dacor 6 burner stove, Sub-Zero Refrigerator, two small drink refrigerators, a Dacor oven and convection oven, microwave oven, two dishwashers, two sinks, an island and plenty of counter space. The kitchen is stocked with almost any appliance you would need and is open to the house so the chef does not feel excluded from the rest of the company.

Across from the kitchen is the breakfast nook that seats 6.

The master bedroom has breathtaking views through each window and is a true romantic retreat! The room offers a king size bed; fireplace; original artwork of Charles White, french doors opening to a balcony and a master bathrooom with a jacuzzi bath tub, his and her sinks and dual heads in the over sized master shower.

Step outside the home and into the forest to explore the Rocky Mountains!

Outstanding restaurants of all cuisines are only a 10 minute drive to the historic town of Crested Butte!

The Country Club has a first class golf course. Enjoy skiing, rafting, hiking, fishing, the Blue Mesa and local horses.

The town has events all year long including music festivals and art shows. Book your trip now!

Year Purchased: 2006

Why Crested Butte, CO, USA:
On a vacation with my wife, we fell in love with the beauty of the mountains of Colorado. We bought a view lot and eventually built our custom dream home.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
There is no better family time then the peace and quiet the mountains offer that allow you to focus on outdoor activities, playing games together or enjoying a movie night after a day of skiing, rafting or hiking. Walk out your front door and into the forest to explore the mountains of Crested Butte. A secluded 52 acre 5000+ square foot mountain home where you never see your neighbors and have the biggest backyard / playground imaginable as the development backs up against the national forest.
