Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

“Alleman North” is the top-story of the legacy Aspencliff Condominium duplex stunningly situated on the ramparts of Ram’s Horn Mountain in prestigious Windcliff Estates.

The raison d’etre for every residence at Windcliff is to stand high upon the firmament, stare unblinkingly towards the west, and drink in the majesty of the Rocky Mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park. “Alleman North” excels splendidly in that regard.

The entry is flanked with a dramatic, ascending wall faced with Rocky Mountain moss rock. As you enter the great room, you are greeted by a wondrous view --- stacks of mountains standing shoulder to shoulder just beyond the western wall of windows. The mountains are impressive in their mass and in their near proximity. Directly in your field of view, Long’s Peak rises to 14,259 feet to where wisps of clouds attend its brow. It is but one of 72 mountain summits breaching the 12,000 elevation mark in Rocky Mountain National Park. “Alleman North” has a front-row balcony seat to drink in the spectacle! Venture out onto the west deck. Directly below you is the protruding mass of exposed granite that constitutes Buser Park --- a cherished piece of real estate held in common by all the residents of Windcliff Estates. Peoples of the Arapaho and Ute nations once stood here to survey the vast hunting grounds spread before them in the valleys far below. Walk out to the precipice at Buser Park to watch the eagles soar or to be drenched in the majesty of a Rocky Mountain sunset.

The living space at “Alleman North” is a picture of comfort and repose. “L” in this household stands for “leather” and for “lounging.” Curl up in front of the view --- or the massive wood-burning fireplace and hearth that anchor the living room. A spectacular panoramic print of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains names the twenty-two tallest peaks framed in the front windows and details their heights. Fine art prints by Albert Bierstadt, Bev Doolittle, and Don Marco adorn the walls. Books and games await your hours of relaxation. The kitchen at “Alleman North” is tidy and inviting. It is equipped to accommodate your most-creative endeavors. The kitchen window affords a perfect view up the ramparts of Ram’s Horn mountain to the band of white granite grinning handsomely at the world. This noted landmark is affectionately labeled “Teddy’s Teeth” in honor of our toothsome 26th President of the United States --- Teddy Roosevelt. A wine “Honor Bar” invites you to complement your meal with a fine bottle of red from the Tuscan hills or the vines of Napa Valley. Please just replace it with an equal bottle of your choosing for the enjoyment of guests to follow. The formal dining room features magnificent views to the west and to the south, and awaits the pleasure of your company. You also have the option of dining out on the west deck where the grill is close at hand and Windcliff’s perpetual parade of wildlife awaits your sighting.

Three bedrooms are a half flight up the stairs. Historical photos adorn the walls of the hallway. They depict the travails of travel on the roads and through the passes of a more-challenging age in the Rocky Mountains back at the turn of the 20th Century. The ensuite master bedroom boasts stunning views of mountains to the south and a Broccini painting in oil. A queen bedroom overlooks the living room, the fireplace, and the views beyond. The twin suite is watched over by a captivating Carl Brenders portrait of a wolf that fixes you with the unwavering gaze characteristic of the wild and the wily.

A profound Native American Blessing is inscribed on the wall at “Alleman North:” “May the warm winds of Heaven blow softly on this house, and may the Great Spirit bless all who enter here.” It would seem that He has, judging by the remarks inscribed in the Alleman’s guest book:

“The view was more than we could have dreamed of!”

“…..from the words of DESIDERATA we saw mounted on the wall: ‘Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.’”

“The view from the balcony is absolutely breathtaking!”

“The whole front room overlooks the beautiful Rocky Mountains and offers one of the best views in town!”

“The views are incredible! You would be hard pressed to find another place in Estes Park to even come close.”

“The views are unrivaled.”

“We enjoyed the peace and the quiet and the close proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park. Windcliff is a wonderful place to stay.”

“The aspens were in their full glory and the weather was perfect. It was our best stay ever!”

A SPECIAL CONSIDERATION: 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 “Alleman North” --- separated from the “hustle and bustle” of people and their traffic. The Windcliff enclave embracing the “Alleman North” 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!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Exceeded all our expectations! Stunning view from the deck, where we sat for breakfast and dinner each night - no point in going out to eat with a view like that. Well equipped kitchen, spacious bedrooms, everything very clean. One of the mattresses in the twin bedroom very uncomfortable, but other than that everything was perfect. Will definitely return if back in the area. Perfect location for easy access to Rocky Mountain National Park which is gorgeous.
