Summer at Wild Rose

By Bonnie Smith AllenWillow Creek Highlands is a quiet neighborhood which lies adjacent to Ruby Ranch, Willowbrook and Three Peaks in Silverthorne. The home at 737 Wild Rose is nestled in this beautiful setting. It sits up on a private lot with aspen and evergreen guarding it. Offered at $975,000, this yields a price per square foot of $280 for the 3,480 square feet of living space. Additionally, there is an oversized two car garage, abundant storage and a warm welcoming floor plan included.

The exterior is marked by beautiful stonework with lovely street presence. The entry leads into a foyer with a glimpse of the interesting angles and beams of the home’s structure. Stairs up lead into the Great room with good windows and light. The river rock fireplace warms the space and built in bookshelves add ambience. Two wooden posts are an attractive element, giving the suggestion of separation for the adjoining dining room. Sliding glass doors here lead out to the sunny deck which looks into the gently sloping yard. Beautiful trees point to the mountain views beyond. Next is the open kitchen with granite countertops and mission style wood cabinets. A large v-shaped island houses the four burner GE Profile cooktop and provides ample seating. Other appliances include a Profile double convection oven, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher, as well as a double Kohler sink.

To the left of the living area are a powder room with pedestal sink and a laundry with plenty of additional storage. Across the hall is a large storage room with a big sunny window which would make a handy spot for an office. Completing this level is a large main floor bedroom suite which is presently used as a study. The ensuite bath has double sinks and double closets. French doors here open out to the deck with good spa access.Stairs up from the main level lead to another master bedroom suite with lots of sun and amazing views to Buffalo Mountain. The bath features double sinks, a jetted tub, separate shower and a walk in closet.

Stairs down from the main level lead to a spacious second living area. This one, too, enjoys a stone-trimmed fireplace and has two separate seating areas. Access is on this level for the oversized two gar garage which boasts an adjoining workshop area. Also in this area is a wine cellar. To the right of the family room is another bedroom. This one shares a Jack and Jill tiled bath with the living area.The home has an open, spacious feel and excellent bedroom privacy and separation. With careful details including hardwood floors and wooded setting for the deck and spa, this home is the perfect base for four season mountain living.
