Ryan Summerlin December 23, 2012
Just north of Silverthorne, perched high up above the Blue River lies South Winter Subdivision. Some say the best views in Summit County can be had from this home which sits on just over 20 acres.
Near 360 degree views can be enjoyed by the residents and guest taking in the the Gore Range and south to the Tenmile Range, Baldy and Guyot peaks.
A private drive winds up the property for the gated entry leading to a home of approximately 6,000 square feet with a spacious four-car garage.
The large guest room above the garage provides a private stay for both the owner and the visitors. Separated from the main living area by a generous mud room with a built-in cabinet to drop hats, boots and gloves upon entry to this beautiful home. An ample wash room is located within this corridor with many custom cabinets and a wash sink.
Returning to the front, one will enjoy the inviting entry that opens to the main hall with views straight through a wall of windows to the Gore Range. You must see this property to believe the views and appreciate its quality.
Massive hand-hewn structural beam adorn the main hall that houses the living, kitchen and dinning areas. A massive stone fireplace compliments the north end of this area and creates a cozy sitting area.
The kitchen boasts a Wolf red-handle gas cook top, across from built-in double ovens and a convection microwave. A double-door Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer should handle all your needs – or you may need to cater the day’s event.
To the right from the entry is a hall leading to a huge master bedroom, again with a massive custom stone fireplace that separate the master bed area from sitting area – both with a wall of windows that takes in the beauty of the Gore Range.
The master bath enjoys an ample double lav with custom copper plumbing fixtures and a large freestanding copper bath tub. Adjacent to the tub Is the the glass doors to the multi-head shower enclosure that also offers its habitants the joy of a steam unit.
Down the hall to the left is the south master with many of the features of the north master. A smaller room in the south hall provides an additional sleeping area, guest room or office.
