Property description

Red Fox House

This house sits at over 11,000 feet in elevation on one acre in Valley of the Sun with a beautiful view of the sunrise and Pikes Peak in the distance. The secluded location is a perfect place to relax, yet it is within 15 minutes of both Alma and Fairplay in Park County. Breckenridge ski area and the many shops, restaurants and hiking/biking trails it offers is only 25 minutes away over scenic Hoosier Pass.

The home has an open concept kitchen, living room and dining room with a large deck on the upper floor. There are two bedrooms and one bath on this level. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other has two twin beds. The lower level is a walkout with large windows open to the east and lots of light. There is a large living area, bedroom, and bath with large shower on the lower level. The bedroom has a king size bed and there is a day bed with trundle in the living area. No bunk beds here.

Amenities in the home include a well equipped kitchen, gas fireplace, telephone with free US and Canada long-distance service, wireless internet connection and a detached, oversize 2-car garage. There is Direct TV service with DVR connected to the TV in the living room and one bedroom on the upper level. The lower level living area has a TV ready for watching VHS tapes or DVDs. The home is heated with a forced air gas furnace plus electric baseboard heat in the lower level to keep you toasty warm.

Park, Summit and Chaffee Counties offer a wide variety of outdoor activities just minutes from the house including skiing, snowboarding, cross-county skiing, snow shoeing, sledding, tubing, ice climbing, camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, white water rafting, golf, mountain biking, mountain climbing, 4-wheel and ATV trails. There are several fourteen thousand foot peaks to climb an easy drive from this location including four near Alma and Fairplay. The town of Fairplay has a recreation center, skate board park and BMX track. The National Forest Service office in Fairplay can also help to point you in the right direction for many of the available activities in the area.

This central location give you easy access to the many outdoor activities Colorado has to offer. During your stay you may even be visited by moose, elk, red fox, rabbits, various squirrels and chipmunks. But if you long for the city lights, Denver is only a two hour drive away.

A 4-wheel drive vehicle is recommended for winter travel since the home is at over 11,000 feet and has a steep driveway. The driveway is plowed during the winter months but may still be icy or snow packed. Please be aware that high altitude sickness can occur at this altitude if you or your guests are not properly acclimated. This is alpine living and even in the summer the nights are quite chilly so pack accordingly.

Some of the local attractions with estimated times to get there:
 Alma – Lincoln Falls (ice climbing), Mosquito Pass (4 wheeling) – 15 minutes N

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Born in Indiana I moved to Colorado in 1968 and fell in love with the beautiful mountains. I simply had to stay and enjoy all they had to offer. Work kept me in the Denver area until 2006 when I finally purchased this home and moved to the mountains full time.

Why the Owner Chose Valley of the Sun (Fairplay, CO, USA):
This beautiful mountain location is too wonderful not to share.
