Luxury Property: View to the Lake


Today’s featured residence is situated in the sunny, centrally located neighborhood of Highland Meadows. Located near the high school at Farmer’s Corner, this area enjoys great access all over the county, and sweeping views down to Lake Dillon. The home at 35 Alpensee Court has five bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths and is offered at $1,695,000. It sits on an open 1.33-acre lot, soaking up the sunshine and mountain views. Additionally, there is a two-car garage and a spacious south and west facing deck as additional amenities.

The downstairs reception area features travertine floors and a coat closet. To the right is the access to the two-car garage which has plenty of storage and work space.

To the left is a spacious family room with wet bar, and a stone fireplace with a timber mantle. The fabulous view looks all the way to the lake. The room is large enough for a pool table, as well as media viewing. A wine cellar with etched door adjoins the bar which has a wine refrigerator and sink. Nearby, the laundry room also hosts a craft area, and has granite countertops and a utility sink.

There are three bedrooms on this level. One of them shares a pass-through fireplace feature with the family area. The other bath on this level has rectangular vessel sinks and glass tile details.

Carpeted stairs up from the entry lead to the great room. With beautiful scraped wood floors and soaring ceilings, this is the heart of the home. Careful planning has made this the spot to take advantage of the view from every part of the main living spaces. A stone fireplace with raised hearth and a rough-hewn mantle adds a gathering point, while the tongue-and-groove ceilings are a beautiful detail.

Just off the living area are the formal dining room and the door out to an outdoor “kitchen.” This wonderful deck has a built-in entertainment area and mountain and lake vistas.

The adjoining kitchen has a breakfast area and a thoughtfully planned galley style kitchen. Appliances are the GE Cafe series and include a range with griddle, microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher. Alder cabinets are in a warm natural tone, while granite slab countertops are ivory, buckskin, and brown. The backsplash of travertine tile ties the look together.

There are two bedrooms on this level, one with a covered deck – the perfect spot for morning coffee. A pass-through fireplace is rimmed in slate on the bedroom side. On the bath side, it sits between double oval sinks. Slab granite countertops here are brick and gray. A separate tub and a shower with Euro style doors complete the ensuite bath. The other bath has gray and sage counters and a tiled shower.

A large loft area on the third level adds office space, a playroom, or supplemental sleeping space. Additionally, there is a spa room with glass looking out to views in every direction. Adjoining it is a bath and sauna area.

Throughout the home, materials add mountain ambience. The floorplan gives lots of space for entertaining and gathering. Details are classic and a backdrop to any decor. With views and a great location, this is the perfect home to make all your mountain dreams come true.
