Property description

Byrd is a three-story, stand-alone condominium home cascading down a steep embankment in the midst of prestigious Windcliff Estates. The “great room” at Byrd is just that --- absolutely “great!” It boasts beamed, cathedral ceilings and a generous spill of light from a row of clerestory windows. Picture windows frame the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park in all their glory. The Byrd condominium is furnished throughout with exquisitely-restored and tasteful antiques. A towering burled armoire discreetly houses the home’s entertainment center. The first of two wood-burning fireplaces has a place of honor in the great room with seating to enjoy a good fire or the warmth of good family and friends. The kitchen is modern and spotless. The antique dining table is a masterpiece. They make the idea of “dining in” rather than “going out” appealing and fun. A beautiful deck spans the entire facade of Byrd and offers a 180-degree panorama of the sky-piercing peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Take a deep breath. Repeat…..then repeat again. Here is some of the freshest air in the world --- air without additives! If Rocky Mountain air could be bottled or canned, it would top the market! The main deck offers seating for each member of your traveling party with the promise of evening shade from sheltering trees. Whether you are relaxing, refreshing, or dining --- the mountains are forever in your presence. Convene out here in the late afternoon when a symphony of clouds gathers for a cacophonous cymbal and percussion extravaganza as prelude to a mountain shower to herald the gathering dusk.

With a family name like “Byrd,” it is inevitable that you will find a “bird” theme running throughout the dwelling. In art and sculpture you will find pheasants, nesting
chickadees, eagles, hummingbirds, ducks, geese, sandpipers, roosters, and chickens (with the added adage, “The rooster crows, but the chicken delivers”). Step outside
--- away from the paintings and the pottery --- and gaze skyward to where a soaring red-tailed hawk pirouettes on the wind. Borrow the Bird Book from the plentiful collection of volumes in the library to see how many species you can catalog in the course of your visit. And, every morning that you awaken here you will be taught a new song by a feathered friend coursing or courting in the boughs outside your windows.

Venture one level down at Bird to experience the king-sized master ensuite bedroom, a guest room, and a TV lounge. This level features another grand deck with park-style seating. Descend yet another level to less rarified air, a quilt-covered king-sized bed, and a lounging area replete with a flat-screen TV and the second wood-burning fireplace. Step outside to a flagstone patio nestled among granite rocks, shrubs, and trees. A picnic table on an elevated plateau awaits your casual pleasures. And, whether you enjoy the waiting hot tub by day or by night, the mountains or the stars will be at your fingertips.

Messages to the Byrd family in their Guest Book include the following:

“Lots of memories made here.”

“Even got a wildlife adventure at your property with wild turkeys, assorted birds, deer, elk, and even a large black bear.”

“It was great to come ‘home’ to the hot tub after a hard day’s trek in the mountains.”

“After an exciting drive up the mountain, we were greeted by all of the love and creativity invested in your beautiful mountain home.”

Thanks to the Byrds, it’s little wonder that the world flocks here. And, as the little plaque on the wall says, “If you’re lucky enough to be in the mountains, you’re lucky enough!”

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 “Byrd” --- separated from the “hustle and bustle” of people and their traffic. The Windcliff enclave embracing the “Byrd” 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!
