Livin’ The Dream: Looking for Summit’s hidden gem

Special to the DailyThis model home is an example of the privacy and serenity of the Sanctuary at Keystone. Laurie Williams with RE/MAX Properties of the Summit is the listing broker of this community of homes.

With all the wonderful obvious places to look for your prefect mountain home, that hidden gem throughout the county can be tucked away in the most unassuming locations.

Take for example a development that is located in the heart of all the activities, dining experiences, golf and winter sports of Keystone Resort. While not easily noticed on the north side of the resort, this exclusive small development of paired- and single-family homes is quietly situated in the middle of a natural surrounding of bird and animal habitats. Coming home to your private enclave at the Sanctuary at Keystone is the ultimate surprise setting. Sit quietly in the neighborhood or on your deck to enjoy the peaceful sound of the stream running through the wetlands, chirping of various species of birds, movement of indigenous wildlife and rustle of the forest of aspen groves.

This setting effortlessly combines formal elements with the luxury interiors of knotty alder doors, trim and rustic plank floors. The hues of slab granite enrich your kitchen as you enjoy the cooking experience with your Sub-Zero, Asko, Kohler and Wolf appliances in some of the homes. The quality of these residences is immediately perceived as you are greeted by the main level focal point of the fireplaces of native stone. All this while creating the true mountain exteriors of beautiful dry-stack stone, heavy horizontal timbers with chinking and natural landscaping. While enjoying this secluded yet convenient setting, the association has made things even better. Within a few minutes of your request, you will be carried off by a shuttle van and driver to transport you to any Keystone location. Return is just as easy and much better than trying to meet that local shuttle schedule. Yes, you have found the hidden gem. Appropriately named, The Sanctuary at Keystone. A few private residences are available with pricing starting at $850,000.

There are other hidden gems throughout the area that might be the perfect place for you to call home. Call your experienced real estate professional to help you seek out these one of a kind properties and locations. From Montezuma to Blue River, the choices are vast and the experience in your search will be as fun as owning one of these great properties.
