About the property

Mountain Views from house & deck on a secluded 2 acre lot on a quiet cul de sac

Our private, single family, dog friendly home on 2 acres is conveniently located four miles north of Winter Park Ski Area in the Winter Park Ranch Neighborhood of Fraser. It is on the free Winter Park Ski Area bus route. The backyard has a fenced area to keep the dogs in and the moose out. This area is accessible from the main living area, the master bedroom, & the garage.

The three bedrooms include a large Master Suite with a king sized bed, large dual head shower with bench, and two person Jacuzzi tub. The second main floor bedroom includes a queen bed and an adjacent full bath. The third bedroom is very large and is located on the first floor with twin bunk beds, a full-size bed and an adjacent 3/4 bath. The first floor also offers a second living area with sofa, TV, table and two chairs. This makes it a great place for a second family, a multi-generational group or to set-up the kids. It also offers privacy to a potential third couple.

The rear side of the property features a deck facing west with unobstructed views of Byers Peak. Access the deck from the master suite, the dining area, or the garage/fenced portion of the yard. The main living area features a gas fireplace and is open to the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is neatly organized and fully furnished with all the cooking utensils, pots and pans you need to cook a gourmet meal. For the coffee aficionados, there is a Starbucks Barista Espresso/Cappuccino maker. A crockpot means you can have dinner waiting after a full day of outdoor fun.

The entire property has radiant floor heating including the oversized two car garage. This is the most comfortable heating system you will encounter. No drafts and warm floors keep your feet toasty all the time. This also means there is no need to cart your gear into the house after a long day of skiing. Boots will dry and be ready to go the next morning for another day on the mountain. Pull right into the heated garage and close out the cold behind you. If you need to tune your skis or have toys like mountain bikes and snow mobiles you can work on them in the cozy garage. The garage has a work area and work bench including a bike stand next to the two car parking. Should Fido need a bath after romping in the woods, hot and cold water are available right in the garage.

The house also features a large laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer.

There is excellent hiking and mountain biking from the front door. A single track connects you to the red gate network of trails to the east or use the trails that meander along the Fraser River to get to town and connect to Winter Park or to the west side of US40 where there is another set of trials near the St. Louis Campground. We've ridden and/or hiked the majority of these trials and would be happy to discuss them with you.

About Michael Neilands

Like many Coloradans, we are Midwest transplants that love it here. We hike, mountain bike, snowshoe, nordic and alpine ski. After playing, we love to cook and hang out with friends.

Michael Neilands purchased this house in 2014

Why Michael Neilands chose Winter Park

This property allows us to pursue all of our passions like hiking, biking, snowshoeing and skiing. The views provide a great backdrop. The heated garage allows us to separate the skis, bikes and muddy boots from the house. The interior walls were white when we started but we have added our own color palette.

What makes this house unique

Multi-family or multi-generational lay out and dog friendly with a large fenced in yard. You can also stay warm during the winter and pull directly into the heated garage.

Fun weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our recent stay at Footloose Moose was wonderful. The home is comfortable, spacious well stocked and welcoming. We were able to bring our sweet dog with us for our last minute getaway which made it even more fun.

Thank you for sharing your home.

Spacious and Private House

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely extended stay with our dogs during Februray. The house was perfect to ski during the week and enjoy some afternoon / weekend activities in the area. Huge heated garage was a favorite of us and all our guests. Would definitely stay here again the next time we vacation in Winter Park or Fraser with our dogs or a larger group.

Very spacious with great mountain views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! This is great space, the kitchen is large and open. Our group could socialize while meals were being prepared. The yard is fenced so, our dogs played in the snow whenever they needed out. Nice BBQ on the deck if you like grilled foods. And, it's on the bus line if you don't want to drive to the mountain. We're already talking about going back next year!
