Incredible Custom Colorado Mountain Luxury Home

  • UNDER CONTRACT! Asking $1,200,000

Experience the most incredible panoramic mountain views anywhere in the world from every room of this stunning Windcliff Estates luxury home!  Majestic views of the Rocky Mountain National Park saturate every living space of this amazing architectural creation.  Meticulously designed  by renowned area architect Jim Vandervorst, every detail and aspect of this home is designed to provide views, luxury and lifestyle without compromise — truly contemporary mountain living at its finest!

Located just 4 miles from Estes Park, set privately apart off scenic HWY 66/Tunnel Road is the 282-acre private, luxury residential enclave of Windcliff Estates offering year-round accessibility for discerning residents of full-time, year-round, part-time and high-end short-term vacation rental homes. Set high on the sunny, westward-facing slopes of Rams Horn Mountain, Windcliff provides each home with views and setting like none other in the Rocky Mountains.

This home lives much larger than it’s recorded 3,046 square feet thanks to innovative use of floor-to-ceiling windows, vaulted teak ceilings and volumnous storage areas.  The exterior of the home is clad in low maintenance, neutral-hued stucco accented with glass.  A level cement driveway provides easy access year-round. Visitors are welcomed to the front of the home by a stone-lined courtyard under acanopy of dense aspen trees.

Upon entry of the home, visitors are pulled into the large living area by two walls of glass interrupted only by a contemporary, low-set, stone and stucco clad wood-burning fireplace.  Believe it or not, even the FIREPLACE chimney offers a view of the snow-capped beauty of the back range through its eye-catching inset window!

To the left of the living area is the island kitchen and dining area each with its own panoramic views of the snow-capped Continental Divide. Both rooms are kept additionally warm on the coldest of days by a stately gas log stove. Just beyond are generously large, sun-soaked decks offering 200º panoramic views and alfresco dining in rarified air.

To the right of the living room is the master suite with ensuite luxury 5-piece bath, private mountain views and a secluded summer porch offering a secluded hot-tub for year-round private enjoyment.

Above the Master Suite is an office/study offering up-hill views of Rams Horn Mountain and a sitting area with a private balcony offering wrap-around views of the Continental Divide to the West and Mummy Range to the North.

Abeam the entry, a light-soaked stairway descends to the lower living area which offers a generously scaled den with mountain views to the northwest, a large-screen TV/home theater and a wall of built-ins for media, books and games.  Just behind the family room lies this home’s best discrete secret – more than 400 square feet of clean, dry, well-lit, easily-accessed storage.

Beyond the den are two bedrooms sharing a full bathroom.  The second bedroom also provides a convenient in-room vanity/sink – a convenient amenity for guests.

Just beyond the two guest bedrooms is the home’s meticulously maintained mechanical room offering not one but TWO high efficiency boilers capable of providing the home’s multi-zoned heat and domesic hot water.  A bonus: yet another door opens to yet MORE storage in the home’s meticulously excavated and insulated crawlspace — a true misnomer as even the tallest of homeowners won’t need to stoop to access the bulk of this useful storage space.

Back up on the main level, to the left of the entry foyer is a powder room with utility room just beyond offering washer/dryer and plenty of utility storage.  Beyond the utility room is the home’s oversized 2-car attached garage with 18′ wide overhead door and an additional large workshop area that can be heated and store an exotic or project vehicle.

In all, the property offers  0.52 gently sloping acres of amazing mountainside living.

Just minutes from Estes Park. Enjoy ever-changing panoramas and year-round accessibility. All-weather roads, electric, phone, cable TV and 600MB inernet are available.  All utilities are buried. Full-time HOA operations staff of two maintains roads, water distribution system and convenient refuse center year-round.  Town of Estes Park water is distributed and billed by the HOA as part of the annual HOA assesment.  District sewer billed separately.

No other community balances residents’ desire to feel like they are in a secluded setting yet part of a close-knit residential community just minutes from downtown Estes Park and the gates of Rocky Mountain National Park.  The nearest ski resort is just 65 minutes away from your front door by car! A truly unique mountainscape dream awaits!
