Winter Park, CO 80482
You'll fall in love the moment you cross the threshhold of this modern home - the peaceful vibe of this open floor plan with vaulted ceilings has much to do with its connection to the outdoors through its floor-to-ceiling windows and actual proximity to the slopes - so close you can actually hear them calling.
One glance at the postcard-worthy views of the Slopes and Continental Divide and you'll be positively entranced; be prepared to experience an immediate urge to either soak in the hot tub and count the moguls, or you'll want to heed the call, heading directly to the mountains to experience the thrill of the outdoors, or maybe just to slow down and take a deep breath of fresh air?!
This two-level floor plan exudes a rare combination of warm mountain opulence with optimal flow, from the clean lines of its candlelit, tiled entry to the wide open expanse of the great room with its rough-sawn plank flooring, stone-surround gas fireplace and magnified mountain backdrop - the ambiance created is beyond compare.
The gourmet kitchen has slab granite countertops and high-end stainless steel appliances, including a gas stovetop with five burners and a hood. The custom soft-close cabinets are abundant and deep enough to store small kitchen appliances and most anything else you would desire. Your inner chef will rise to the occasion, and an audience can easily gather around to dine on your culinary efforts between the kitchen's island and the solid wood dining table. An ample pantry allows for easy stocking of staples and favorites plus the large laundry room around the corner has shelving for extra storage.
Grill out on the deck between bouts of relaxation, or relax on the patio with six-person hot tub and customized gas fire pit.
The main level rounds out with a powder room, the above-mentioned laundry room, and a heated, oversized 2-car garage with enough clearance to park most any truck or SUV, with extra room for toys, sporting equipment, etc.
The naturally-lit, airy timber staircase leads to a second living area which boasts a suspended flat-screen tv, a cush couch, coffee table and ottomans ~ watch a movie or cozy up with a classic. Around the corner, there's a bunk room with two sets of aspen twin bunks, a dresser and a large closet, plus nearby, you'll find a bright, handsome full bath with soaking tub - it's a very conducive layout for navigating a full house. The 2nd bedroom suite has views of the slopes and its own bath with granite counters, a pebble-tiled mosaic shower and glass door.
Gaze at the mountain from the king bed in the primary bedroom ~ its ensuite bath has dual basins with granite counters and a gorgeous custom shower with built-in bench and glass door. The closet is very spacious with extra nooks for storage.
The hot tub is right out the door, along with a few chairs and a gas customized iron fire pit.
This furnished duplex is located in Lakota, which is one of Winter Park's most prestigious neighborhoods known for its unparalleled slope and mountain views. The Arapahoe National Forest is so close that you could snowmobile or bike directly from this home, and the Fraser River Trail is about a mile away - this is paved and travels into downtown Winter Park and beyond. The world-class Winter Park Resort is just a stone's throw away, so no matter the season, being near the Resort offers endless opportunities for recreation and fun. Downtown Winter Park with its shops and restaurants is only a five minute drive away, and from DIA, it's about 90 minutes door-to-door.
