Gold at Game Trail Road
April 24, 2009
In every season, the residence at 255 Game Trail Road is spectacular. With Spring breaking, the valley has snow-capped peaks with pale green leaves appearing daily. In autumn, the home looks out toward mountains and valleys onto a sea of burnished gold aspens. Given its perch at the top of a gentle rise, all seasons are breathtaking. The four bedroom, four and a half bath home is offered at $1,289,000 and sits on an acre parcel in the Three Peaks neighborhood close to The Raven Golf Course. Additionally, there is a two car garage and spectacular views included.
The home is set well back at the end of a cul de sac off the main road. The lot, however, opens up behind the home to take advantage of a sweeping expanse of the valley view and the mountains beyond. The exterior of the home has an arts and crafts flavor with stone and slate accents and a geometric-paned front door. The entry opens into a slated area with a coat closet and then directly into the Great room.
The tiger wood floors are spectacular and set the ambiance for the space. To the left, the dry stacked stone fireplace soars to the interesting cathedral roof lines, making a design statement. The fireplace features a wood mantle and the space above is wired for a flat screen television. The walls of windows face the mountain vistas and let in plenty of natural light.
To the right is the open kitchen with a two level island which adds plenty of informal seating. Countertops are Ubbatuba granite with deep green and black tones. Appliances include a Kitchen Aid six burner stovetop, dishwasher, refrigerator, wine refrigerator, double wall convection/conventional ovens and a microwave.
The adjoining dining room enjoys another solid bank of windows and a door leads out to a partially covered deck area. Past this area is a utility room with tiled floors and a stone counter. This is the first of three laundry areas in the home. This area also has a utility sink and a mud area, as well as access to the garage.
To the left of the living area is an office or bedroom that has its own small west-facing patio. A nearby powder room features a glass vessel sink and sandstone slab counter with a rough edge.

The master bath has an extra deep soaking tub, double sinks and a double headed shower with steam. The slab granite counters are light butterscotch and sepia tones. The walk in closet and private laundry complete the suite.
Stairs down from the main level lead into a carpeted family room with a slate fireplace. The wet bar has granite in rust, beige and charcoal.

The home is beautifully staged with a contemporary flair, but the beauty of the finishes and the classic lines of the detail such as classic two panel doors and careful trim make a beautiful backdrop for any taste. With a spectacular setting and views, intriguing but classic design, and the perfect location just minutes from skiing, shopping, golf and the highway, this is a perfect retreat for all your mountain gatherings.
