Nestled among towering Ponderosa pines, majestic spruces, and quaking aspens, this newly remodeled home on the banks of Fall River offers an idyllic setting for a mountain retreat. Although it is only minutes from shopping and dining in downtown Estes Park, this home’s peaceful and private location will make you feel like you are miles away from your nearest neighbors.
Tucked between massive boulders and shaded by mature pines, fresh landscaping welcomes guests with cheerful mountain varietals, including stunning purple lupines and aspens whose leaves gently rustle in the breeze. A glimpse of the rushing river seen through the breezeway between the house and garage draws you out onto the brand new, spacious deck overlooking Fall River and the forested bank beyond. Spying the gas grill and an alfresco dining set that can seat four, you are already looking forward to relaxing evenings outdoors. You also anticipate lingering over your morning coffee or tea on the flagstone patio with Adirondack chairs that is just steps from the rippling river, or up on the deck’s loveseat.
Entering the home, you find the entryway thoughtfully designed for neatly storing jackets, bags, boots, and hats -- all the accessories that come with a mountain getaway! The home’s stacked, front-loading washer and dryer and all the laundry supplies you could need are also tucked away here.
Stepping into the kitchen, light and airiness wash over you. With a vaulted ceiling and a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over the river and open onto the deck through two sets of sliding doors, this open-concept kitchen, dining, and living area brings the outdoors in. The sleek white cabinets, cool blue-gray glass backsplash, and warm butcher block countertops work together to suffuse the room with serenity. Stainless steel appliances, including a gas range, microwave, and dishwasher; a full complement of cooking supplies; and, a selection of cookbooks ensure that you will be able to prepare the perfect meals for you and your guests. The extra large butcher block island with four stools that tuck neatly underneath to save space doubles as a countertop dining table with river views.
Flowing seamlessly from the kitchen, the living room invites conversation and relaxation, either beside a roaring wood fire or while enjoying the sights and sounds of the river and forest just outside. Flanking the stone fireplace are two cozy armchairs and a matching couch, which converts to a bed that can sleep two, along with a wall-mounted flatscreen TV with a DVD/CD player that can offer entertainment on quiet evenings or rainy afternoons.
The master bedroom welcomes you to your own serene, private retreat. Windows on two walls, dressed with flowing floor-to-ceiling drapes, offer views of the impressive rock formations and lush pine forests just outside and wash the room in natural light. The clean lines of the modern furnishings, including a king-size bed, open shelving, and a wall-mounted TV, enhance the room’s calming effect. The spacious en suite, full bath with tasteful tile work and a stone-counter sink encourages pampering. Finally, you can stow away your suitcases and clothing in the large cedar closet featuring a rack for hanging clothes; it also houses space heaters and extra pillows.
Whether you are planning a romantic escape or are looking for a peaceful home base for your mountain adventures, the clean, modern design of this home’s interior and its unbeatable riverside location ensure an unforgettable stay in Estes Park.
