Hear the sounds of Priest Creek as you cross a private bridge to arrive at this spectacular home nestled in the hills of Priest Creek Ranch. With views from the Flat Top Mountains to the Ski Area and beyond, the tranquil, park-like setting of 36 acres features a creek-fed pond and wildlife viewing such as elk and Sandhill cranes. The grounds are a gardener’s paradise with landscaped and natural areas as well as an irrigated, fenced garden. Outdoor living spaces are in abundance. Enjoy soaking in the hot tub or relaxing by the outdoor wood burning fireplace.
The 9,245 square foot house, designed by architect Joe Robbins, has many custom features that make this home a private, mountain retreat only minutes from downtown Steamboat and the Ski Area. One-of-a-kind details, such as the hand-carved front door, welcome you inside. A great room with a two-story, stone fireplace, exposed wooden beams, pecan floors, and expansive stonework is the heart of the home. An open kitchen features alder cabinetry and a Wolf double oven. Just off the kitchen is a breakfast bar with a seating area, built-in Miele coffee station, and a private deck with awning to enjoy your morning coffee as you watch the South Valley come to life. A study with vaulted ceilings, fireplace, and extensive wood shelving is the perfect at-home office, or a great place to curl up with a book.
The windows of the main floor master frame the Steamboat Ski Area, and open to the sounds of the creek as it flows by. The master suite is an escape in itself with a fireplace, air conditioning, soaking tub and private deck with sunset views. The upper level features two bedrooms with a shared bath. The lower level of the house is built for fun. Gather in the living area with fireplace and wet bar to watch the game while the kids play in the bunk room, which comfortably sleeps 8. Four queen-size beds each have a private loft area, with storage and a sink. An extra-large bathroom with room for everyone completes the space.
Down the hall, the adults can relax in the wine room with a favorite vintage. The room has a 1,500-bottle capacity, and includes a built-in wine bar with granite counters and a seating area. Two garages, with capacity for 7 cars, protect all of your vehicles from the elements and provide excellent workshop space. From the dog wash to the greenhouse, there is room for all of your pursuits, including horseback riding. Priest Creek Ranch has a community barn for your horses, as well as 300 acres of trails.
