Colorado ranch living

special to the daily

With summer in full bloom and the heat of the city a daily reality, you may be dreaming of a place to get away from it all. The perfect spot is the 82.70 acres at Tall Pines Ranch in Woodland Park. Just 90 miles southeast of Breckenridge and only 45 minutes from the Colorado Springs airport, this horse property is offered at $2,879,000 and features meadows, rolling hills, views of Pikes Peak and a small stocked pond.

The town services of Woodland Park are just a couple of miles away, with the golf course just across the street. The drive sweeps up through National Forest land to the four bedroom, four bath log home which sits on a hill looking down to the sweeping views of the valley, woods and mountains beyond. The wide wraparound deck has plenty of space for barbecues and gatherings. An oversized three car garage provides space for work area as well as vehicles.

The home includes a charming low-ceilinged great room with a prominent stone fireplace. A formal dining room lies to the left and a spacious, open kitchen with top of the line stainless appliances features granite slab countertops, a nearby laundry, powder room and an adjoining den area for cozy media viewing. The heart of the kitchen is the Viking Professional range with all the bells and whistles.

The main floor master is large enough to enjoy a sitting area and two walls of windows looking out to the view. Doors lead out to a deck area which soaks up the sun. The ensuite bath has tile in warm neutrals.

The upper level of the home houses another bedroom suite, as well as a corner office with views of the ranch and mountain peaks. The lower level has more bedrooms, as well as a a small family room with space for a morning workout or movie viewing.

A new barn holds tack and horses, while four guest cabins sit on the bank of a small stocked pond. Fenced pasture areas are everywhere, and National Forest land lies on several sides of the property, providing a peaceful setting. A caretaker’s cottage also is included in the sale. Four of the cottages have been beautifully restored, with tiled baths and modern kitchens, offering privacy for guests.

Other wonderful features include meadows of wildflowers, wildlife that roams the property, a stream, and the beautiful rolling topography of the region. This truly unique ranch property is a spectacular place with good access, views, serene setting, and all of the very best that the Rocky Mountain region has to offer in every season. Don’t miss the opportunity to gather family and friends at your personal mountain retreat!
