About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Welcome to Sponsel! And, welcome to an amazing mountain-top experience. Perched on a dramatically-situated lot on the face of Ram’s Horn Mountain in prestigious Windcliff Estates, everything about Sponsel proclaims that this is “one in a million” --- from the cocky tilt of its roof lines and its massive scale to the sloping wall of glass that is its façade. Just inside the leaded-glass front door is a plate-glass-walled vestibule that buffers the quiet interior from the out-of-doors, but immediately fixes one’s gaze on the wonders awaiting your pleasure just beyond. The living room at Sponsel is on a par with the lobby of a luxury hotel. In fact, to ever measure up to Sponsel, the luxury hotel would also have to have a magnificent, face-on view of Rocky Mountain National Park. Sponsel certainly does! And, this stunning Colorado spectacle is viewed through over a thousand square feet of glass that make the living room at Sponsel an architectural marvel! Its floors are rare woods laid in the rich manner of parquetry. A three-story wall of marble cradles a wood burning fireplace ringed by leather seating. A board-room-sized table topped with plate glass invites some serious hours of gaming. Did I mention the wet bar? The artful décor offers an occasional reminder that your host family, the Sponsels, are from TEXAS! But, when the fresh Colorado air is calling, there is direct access to the massive, wrap-around deck outside where lounging, char broiling, and dining are viable options.

The kitchen at Sponsel is a chef’s grandest dream come true. Surely the magnificent view of the Front Range (mountains --- not the stove!) ascending to the Heavens in Rocky Mountain National Park will inspire creative culinary endeavors. Stacked ovens, a warming drawer, a prep island worthy of an ocean, dramatic tube lighting, and every essential vessel and tool are readily at hand. (Near the kitchen is a laundry suite you simply won’t want to leave behind!) Sponsel’s formal dining room is accessed through massive plate glass doors. Set the waiting table with china and stemware beneath the tray ceiling and welcome the magnificent view pouring in through the west windows as a cherished guest at every meal.

There are optional ways to venture upstairs in search of the formal sleeping suites. The curving staircase is lined with marble. But, if need or choice dictate, an elevator strategically poised just off the entry hall can whisk you there as well. A pair of sublimely-elegant suites awaits. The master of masters features a mirrored wall reflecting the mighty king bed and the flickering fireplace. The lady’s dressing room and attendant closet space are big enough to justify a map. The vanity is embraced by three walls of glass. The marble bathroom offers a Jacuzzi soaking tub with majestic mountain views and a shower room with a dressing area. The suite boasts over 100 square feet of private deck. The ensuite queen bedroom facing the slopes of Ram’s Horn Mountain has a two-story ceiling dressed in wood, a glass wall with a view to the living lobby below, a bar, office, and library. Tall trees sway to the rhythms of the breeze just outside.

Take the elevator this time and it’s two stories down to the great family room with its wall of windows and mountains strutting in review, an enormous fireplace facing a sunken conversation pit of cozy seating, a wet bar, large-screen TV, gaming table, a full-sized pool table, and a hot tub. Nearby is a sauna suite complete with a dressing room, shower, and bathroom. An ensuite queen bedroom and an ensuite twin round out the sleeping configurations at Sponsel. The family room and the two bedrooms each have exterior doorways to over 700 square feet of outdoor patios and the views that they embrace.

Suffice to say, Sponsel is a jewel of a mountain masterpiece! And, the reviews tendered by visitors to Sponsel certainly underscore that assessment:
• “Absolutely gorgeous!”
• “The views are definitely amazing!”
• “We have been coming to Estes Park for 30 years, and staying at the Sponsel home was our best decision yet!”
• “The joys of our journey were amplified by the awe we shared by being in this house and in this place.”
• “Our grandsons have often asked about ‘the gorgeous house of windows high up on the mountainside.’ As luck would have it, this time around we were able to spend nine days here. Wunderbar!”
• “…..the feeling that you’re almost within reach of the stars at night!”
• “Amazing home. We have stayed here three times and intend to make it a lifelong tradition!”
• “Sponsel is an amazing architectural statement!”

Although Estes Park [Rocky Mountain National Park’s gateway community] is only 15 minutes distant by car, you will always feel securely tucked away at “Sponsel” --- separated from the “hustle and bustle” of people and their traffic. The Windcliff enclave embracing the “Sponsel” residence is a private residential community comprising 260 acres on the sunny western slopes of Ram’s Horn Mountain. It is served by a single entrance to private roads with no through streets or heavy traffic. It is truly a world apart!
