“Schnetzler” is the top-story of the legacy Aspencliff Condominium duplex stunningly situated on the ramparts of Rams 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. “Schnetzler” 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.
“Schnetzler” 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 “Schnetzler” 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 “Schnetzler” 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.
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. The ensuite master bedroom boasts stunning views of mountains to the south. A queen bedroom overlooks the living room, the fireplace, and the views beyond. The twin suite completes the bedroom offerings.
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 “Schnetzler” — separated from the “hustle and bustle” of people and their traffic. The Windcliff enclave embracing the “Schnetzler” 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!
