Steamboat's Elk Meadows Ranch is 358 acres located 8 miles from town. Views of the iconic slopes of the Steamboat ski area are flanked by a 40-mile span of the Continental Divide stretching across the valley. In rich meadows below the house, the Elk River carves its way through several miles of working ranches. The views are simply hypnotic, especially when the setting sun's rays rest on the warm hickory floors before settling on the Park Range in an alpenglow finale. The 5,460 s.f. home, carefully designed to capture the view, was completed in 2017. The great room has numerous places to dine, play games, assemble a puzzle, or curl up with a good book. Intelligent lighting accentuates the massive beams and distinctive wood ceiling of locally milled beetle-kill pine. The main level master wing features custom details like stone trim that mimics the mountains, art coves, and back-lit onyx vanity sinks. Two guest suites, one on each floor, offer a welcome retreat for friends and family. The lower level has a kid's bunk room resembling an old west fort plus a den accessing the patio, fire pit, and yard. The top-level is dedicated to an observatory style office with 360-degree views of the surrounding landscape. There is room for all-things-recreation with ski lockers in the mudroom and a large loft above the 3 car garage. Central air and radiant floors provide comfort in all seasons. Commercial grade roads access the house and also lead to a scenic back valley. Ponds and springs provide domestic and stock water while attracting the animals that reside on and travel through the ranch. Bordered on 3 sides by conserved land, the carefully managed meadow valleys and gentle ridges of the ranch have proven to be irresistible to wildlife. A trail system loops through the ranch, offering a front-row seat to a veritable Rocky Mountain safari! Only minutes from the slopes and the airport, the ranch strikes the right balance of privacy and convenience in a spectacular setting.
