Property description

This 5 bedroom, 4 bath home is located in a beautiful, mountainous neighborhood at the base of what is known as 'Old Man Mountain' It is just 5 blocks or 1/2 mile from the west end of downtown Estes Park, and only 2 blocks to the river walk trail that goes through downtown all the way to and around Lake Estes. It is also close to the north entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park.

The interior of the house was completely remodeled in the spring of 2013. It has all new cabinets with stone tile countertops, all new appliances, all new tile, fixtures, and faucets in the bathrooms, and new bedroom carpet, and hardwood floors in the kitchen, dining room, and living room. Besides being very tasteful, the home has a warm, cozy, mountain feel to it.

The property has a hot tub that seats 6 people, has 38 jets, underwater lights, bucket seats, foot jet and a lounge.

On the property are mature ponderosa pine trees and some truly amazing rock formations that provide wonderful privacy, play and family photos. The deck on the back side of the house is surrounded by rocks and trees and invites a peaceful, quiet outdoor living experience.

Old Man Mountain is a popular hiking area close to downtown Estes Park. It is one of the oldest and largest sacred Native American sites in Colorado. The area has many sloping rock walls and ledges, which offer access to the top. The view of the Estes Valley is well worth the hike/climb.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Hi, we are Mick and Judy Scarpella, the owners of the home at Old Man Mountain. In March 2012 we were blessed to find this magical property but it needed some major attention. So, we spent four long months tearing everything out and putting it all back new. Then we added a Family Room. The end result was better than expected. We love to come here and hang out when it is not rented. Old Man Mountain feels like home with the added serenity of wild creatures that seem to feel as much at home on our property and the surrounding area as we do. Just today, we were getting ready to go home to Fort Collins when I walked out the garage door and found myself staring at a six point Bull Elk munching grass. We have a pesky little pine squirrel living under our storage shed. I named him Sam. He showed up as a baby when I was doing the remodel and made me laugh. Now I threaten to transplant him because he chews the new growth off of our ponderosa pine trees. I also love the wild turkeys. They march through like they own the place and look at us like we are a nuisance. Judy and I grew up in Fort Collins, Colorado so Estes Park and RMNP have been in our blood for a long time. I (Mick) have spent many days--and nights--on the high mountain walls, ice falls and steep snow slopes along the continental divide. Look up from Estes Valley, you will see those black walls and near vertical snow slopes. You will also see the climbing areas of Lumpy Ridge, the Craiges and the rugged east face of Longs Peak, referred to as 'The Diamond'. One would be hard pressed to find a place amidst this natural beauty where I haven't stretched myself on something scary. Now I enjoy hanging out at Old Man Mountain with Judy. Drinking a cup of coffee in the morning while looking out the dining area window or sitting on the deck makes both of us grateful for our Estes home. The only enhancement we need is our grandchildren climbing on our rocks, filling the air with laughter.

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park, CO, USA:
We looked at seven or eight properties on the day we started our search for a second home in Estes Park. We came back to this one because it felt right. We could look past the needed remodel and see the potential. But it was the property that really drew us. The rock formations, the old growth ponderosa pines and Old Man Mountain rising up across the street felt like it had history with a sense of permanence.
