The turn off Touchdown Drive will take your breath away as you first glimpse this expansive 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath estate. The massive stone-and-log dream home sits on a spectacular 2.5 acre sunlit corner lot surrounded by towering aspens and alpine evergreens.

This unique log estate has been exquisitely finished with custom stain and decorative iron railings to complete its natural flow with the environment.

As you pass through the arched stone bridge, a colorful six-story stone turret is revealed, decorated with arched, triple-glazed beveled and leaded glass windows and topped by a copper cupola.

Enter through the massive double-door front entrance to be greeted by an artistic brass marker, identifying the elevation of 9,411 feet, set in the floor of the stone foyer. Immediately following is a breathtaking view of the most majestic mountains in North America. The eye is drawn upward to the soaring 40-high skylit great room. This space is accentuated by dramatic scissors trusses and one of the home’s seven fireplaces, surrounded by stone and rising floor to ceiling. The exposed ceilings in the great room and all other vaulted rooms are comprised of tongue-and-groove aspen, milled from the very trees that grew in the home’s footprint. The room is an entertainment center filled with the elegance of the most refined furniture, reminiscent of the billiard parlor of a bygone era.

Hand-planed Bavarian walnut flooring, bordered in stone, accents a formal dining area surrounded with intricate ironwork. The combined 20’ vaulted family room and kitchen, both with fireplaces, create an expansive space for casual dining and entertainment, complete with a big-screen TV, maple cabinetry and built-ins, massive structural skylights and exotic granite with upgraded edge details on the wet bars, kitchen island and backsplashes. Commercial appliances, beveled glass cabinets, a pot rack and a breakfast nook to view the 250’ water feature complete the experience.

Outside the kitchen and family room, you enter the cedar deck that completely wraps the front of the house. Sitting in the outdoor spa you view the panoramic mountains, waterfall, pond, and acres of wildflowers, and literally gaze down upon the sunset.

The lower level is an entire apartment with living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, home theater room, oversized sauna, ski lockers, patio and a four-car heated garage with concealed storage and work bench.

Endless details are a hallmark of this magnificent structure, including a patented shrinkage-compensating non-settling system incorporated into the log walls, radiant in-floor heating, stone niches, etched glass, copper cupolas, two central vacuum systems, sound/alarm system, six separate phone lines, custom-dyed carpeting and a full-acreage perimeter wireless underground dog fence.

The his-and-hers offices are located on different floors, complete with fireplaces and separate computer, phone and fax lines. The bridge that leads to “his” office and the views from both offices is absolutely spectacular!

An array of rainbows cascade through the exposed-log stairway from the morning sun pouring through the beveled and leaded glass windows. The stairway leads to the next level and the library, complete with cheery bookshelves, sliding ladder, grandfather clock, and a reading arear that overlooks the great room and the mountains beyond.

The exquisitely appointed master suite is highlighted by a vaulted ceiling, cast-stone fireplace, skylights and a magnificent sleigh bed. The master bath compares to being pampered in a luxurious spa. The most rare of exotic granites graces the 14’ double lavatory countertop, surrounds the 6’ diameter spa and accents the glass block steam shower with bench. The glass-enclosed spa area cantilevers from the main house to capture views that extend 100 miles to the mountains of Utah.

The six-story stair tower culminates in a truly serene retreat. Authentic silver-blue African slate graces the entire roof, which is underlain with a low-voltage copper mesh to heat the valleys and eaves. Your eye is quickly drawn to the spectacular snow-white mountains of winter, the vivid greens of summer, or the yellow glaze of autumn, all complemented by the deep indigo sky. You are truly home in your magnificent estate!
