Mountain comfort and modern sensibility come together in this beautiful, thoughtfully designed residence, located on Telluride’s east end, less than 1.5 miles from downtown. Sitting high above town with perfect views from every window, you can’t help but take in Ingram Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Mt. Ajax and hear the San Miguel River rushing below. The expansive views can be enjoyed all year round with the abundant use of glass and 2000+ sq. ft. of porch that wraps around the entire home. Utilizing reclaimed wood from an 1800’s Seattle factory and cabinet grade cherry for the flooring, the home is replete with light and the golden hue of custom made fir wainscoting. With an open floor plan, 25 foot ceilings and a massive stone fireplace, the home is spacious, comfortable and warm. Invite your family and friends to prepare meals together in the oversized kitchen and take advantage of both a gas and charcoal grill right off the kitchen deck to help with meal preparation. And when it’s time to wine and dine, set the table for 12 at the dining table and 6 at the kitchen table-there is plenty of room for everyone.
When you are not skiing, hiking, snowboarding, cycling, going to a festival or taking a yoga class, relax in the main floor second family room with a big screen TV and wet bar and send the kids downstairs to the rec room for Wii and board games. Or train the high powered telescope on Ajax and see your own climbing party on their way to the top! And, if you really need some Zen time, roll out your mat in the circular perch room and practice your meditation and poses to soft music piped through the house wide audio system.
Five bedrooms make the sleeping accommodations easy for a group. The master suite features a king bed facing a grove of aspens, an en suite bathroom with marble shower, large soaking tub, his and her double sinks, walk in closet, office and sitting area, and a balcony for taking in the stunning sunrises and incredible night skies.

This extremely private residence perfectly balances privacy with proximity to downtown Telluride. This residence has become a favorite with a past few families, with each one coming back for multiple stays.
