Alpine Meadow Ranch
Are you looking for big, sweeping views, thickly wooded forests, rolling open meadows with plenty of good high-country grass for your horses and livestock? Are you looking for tons of wildlife: deer, elk, wild turkey? How about beautiful Aspen groves, tall ponderosa, and dramatic rock outcropping? Would you like privacy and quiet solitude? Perhaps an 8,500-acre backyard? If so, this property offers all of this and more! Read on...
The current owners had been looking for a property just as described above when they finally found Alpine Meadow Ranch! After finding their dream Colorado land, they built a dream home!
The home is positioned to take advantage of the 360-degree views - to the west you overlook the Sangre de Cristo range. Northwest gives views of the Collegiate Peaks. Breckinridge is to the north & you can see a small sliver of Pikes Peak to the east.
Built for both comfort and enjoyment- Let's start with the two most important rooms (in my opinion, of course)....the master suite and the kitchen! There is 1,300 sq. ft. of luxurious living that encompasses the second level of this gorgeous home! Enjoy the oversized dream closet with generous space for her shoes & purses as well as a separate accessories closet & dressing area with built-in Marble vanity. The floors are of Travertine Stone with a Marble inlaid mosaic design. The master also includes a separate living area, stack washer & dryer, a wet bar & a second half bath. The luxurious jetted tub as well as the grand shower complete, with Travertine Stone and a full walk-in shower, are designed to enjoy the sweeping views of Waugh Mt., Mt. Princeton and Breckenridge for the ultimate relaxation experience! The master suite has direct access to the second-floor balcony where you have wide-ranging views of some famous Colorado 14ers - Sangre de Cristos, the Collegiates and Breckinridge.
The gourmet kitchen is a chefs dream with expansive granite islands and professional-grade appliances with a particular highlight given to the Thermador all-gas range with dual ovens. Custom Knotty Alder cabinetry offers ample storage, as does the oversized pantry. The granite-topped wet bar is perfect for entertaining & includes both a refrigerator and wine chiller.
Two bonus rooms include a spacious pool/game room on the main level and a large office on the second level. The office is quiet and separate from the living area to afford privacy for conducting business if needed and has direct access to the second-floor balcony. Enjoy High-Speed Unlimited Internet, telephone, and great cellphone reception!
Ceilings of Beetle Kill Pine,( aka - Blue Stain Pine), are throughout the entire home.
The entire home has several sources of heat. The central fireplace is the very efficient Extriodinair 44" Elite which is built to re-burn the gasses to reduce emissions, two forced-air furnaces, and two pellet stoves.
Behind the home is a densely forested area of Ponderosa Pines, Douglas Firs & Aspen groves teeming with wildlife. You will love to sit on the deck and watch the deer & elk, wild turkeys, & quail, and catch videos of the mountain lion, bobcats & bears as they go about their lives.
And the Aspens - love listening to the wind blowing through the Aspen trees & in the fall the entire valley lights up with these gorgeous patches of glowing gold that gradually turns into a fiery orange & red.
Borders thousands of acres of BLM
About a half-mile of the property is contiguous to over 8,500 acres of BLM. Sometimes at night, you can see a few lights way off in the distance - but pristine nature & privacy is absolute.
