Property description

Located at the base of Mt. Elbert, Colorado's highest peak near the village of Twin Lakes, this home is the place to bring a large family or group to enjoy all the best of Colorado. There are many 14ers within 1/2 hour. We are your 14er central. The home is adjacent to a Colorado Wildlife Refuge which is home to a large elk herd. You will see many creatures just outside the door and across the valley. It is a short walk to the ghost town of Derry.

In the summer there is fishing a quarter mile away at Forebay Lake. Great boating can be had ten minutes away on the Twin Lakes. Golf, white water rafting, zip lines, hot springs and lots of shopping in the surrounding towns of Leadville and Buena Vista make for variety and excitement. All around us are historic mining sites, creeks and rivers and endless virgin forests.

We are also within a half hour of Ski Cooper or an hour of the major resorts of Breckenridge (where you can see International Snow Sculpting), Copper Mtn, Keystone, Vail, Beaver Creek and Monarch if you need the world class experience to round out your summer or winter vacation. If you come in winter we can offer a discounted snowmobile tour for the ride of a lifetime.

This home itself is a work of art with massive log beams, a towering rock fireplace and huge windows facing Mt. Elbert and the sunset. There are several separate gathering areas for the group to break up into special interests. The second kitchen down by the pool table means party food is readily at hand. A wrap around deck is big enough for everyone to enjoy the amazing views, the sunshine and the wildlife. The kids can frolic over the acreage without disturbing the neighbors-their aren't any.

My favorite part is the peace and quiet. If you can get everyone to settle down after the exciting day then listen to the birds and the wind as the sun goes down. You will be amazed as the stars then begin to appear or the full moon rises and lights up the area till flashlights are unnecessary.

Once in a lifetime a home

of this quality, complimenting an irreplaceable piece of land in a unique setting comes available for vacationers. Built by a master craftsman this log home is The Rocky Mountains the way it should be lived in. Located at the base of Colorado's highest peaks and backing to National Forest and a wildlife refuge- you couldn't ask for more privacy and serenity than you will find at this estate. Over 5000 square feet and located on 22 acres.
