Remodeled in 2012, this custom timber-fame home is located at the base of Wilson Peak on East Wilson Mesa. The house sits on 60 acres and borders National Forest. You can walk out the front door and access a superb trail system, which connects our property to the Wilson Mesa Trail. During summer months the hiking, horse back riding, and mountain biking possibilities are endless. During winter, one can enjoy cross-country skiing and snow shoeing on the same trails. The property boasts a well-stocked, stream-fed trout pond, a mere five-minute walk from the front door. A fenced pasture with lush, native grasses is the perfect place to keep your horses, should you care to head out on a high mountain ride through aspen and pine forests. The home is oriented toward the South to maximize the solar gain that streams through the large windows of our sunroom (also known as the “moon room”). It sits on the edge of a large meadow with stunning views of Wilson Peak and Sunshine Peak.
The house is a comfortable 2500 sq. ft with an open floor plan. As you enter from the north, you’ll come through a generous sized mudroom with ample hooks, and storage for all of your outdoor gear. Walk through a second door and you enter the main living area with timber frame construction throughout; kitchen with vaulted ceilings, dining room, and a cozy living area with a beautiful soapstone wood stove. The modern, industrial-style kitchen has brand new appliances, granite counter tops, and bar seating around a large island. Upstairs is a bedroom with a queen bed, bunkroom that sleeps 6 people, and full bath. Back down the stairs and through the kitchen to the East is the “original” cabin where the TV room, bedroom/sunroom, full bath, and upstairs master bedroom lie. The sunroom has a queen pull-out sofa. The master bedroom has a king bed and half-bath, which are accessed by a spiral staircase.
During the summer months there is a large outdoor living space with a deck and patio, which look out across the lush meadow and directly at Wilson and Sunshine Peaks.
There are many kids in the family, so there are plenty of toys. Should you be bringing younger children, we have a pack-n-play and changing table. We can also help line up trustworthy baby sitters as a number of our good friends work and teach at the pre-schools and elementary school in town.
This home is available to rent at all times of the year.
