Acerca de 820 Elkhorn Mountain Road

Situated just off the Gold Coast of County Road 250 and nestled into the hillside of prestigious Elkhorn Mountain Estates, this property does nothing but bring the Colorado dream to life in every season. Fall in love with the quiet, secluded setting with only the sound of the creek's tranquil song soothing your soul. This masterpiece began its story in 1999 with the Main House being the first structure designed and built with careful attention to every detail. A breathtaking addition was added in 2010 and completes a home that embraces and provides an escape every time you step into it. Once you meander through the property, you will appreciate the character of a gentle rolling landscape and a design, which embraces the cascading creek and brings the sound of live water into every room. Your first step into this home is greeted by the graceful curvature of steel, walls and wood beams accentuating the timber framing and captivating you with the intricate detail, beckoning discovery of the many treasures that await you throughout this home. Tuck yourself into the bay window quietly awaiting you in the Dining Room and let the sun caress your face. nap, read or daydream about your next adventure in this tranquil setting. Race your canine across the Bridge where your office awaits you, suspended over the creek, creating the ultimate working environment. Complete your journey across the Bridge to the secluded, private Master Suite with the creek running outside the window, fireplace at the foot of your bed and the loft above for meditation, exercise or a little of both. The Master Bath suite includes beautiful stonework, separate shower, Jacuzzi tub, a dream master closet and a surprise jewel – an additional exterior shower. Transform your day in the Family Room "Tree House" with three, ceiling to floor walls of glass, inviting the nature inside, while you work, study or enjoy the wildlife ambling by. Entertaining is brought to a new level in this environment with exterior access to the balcony, stairs leading to the exterior fireplaces and all the while, you cherishing the sounds of laughter from friends and family. When the guests leave, wind down your evenings and spend quiet nights on the deck. Let the last glow of the fire warm your skin, the soothing sounds of the creek lull you to sleep and the cascading canopy of stars blankets you from the heavens above. The 2200 square foot guesthouse is spacious and inviting to all that come to share the Colorado experience with you. An open flowing floor plan greets you the moment you step in from the vestibule. The Living Room ceiling soars, displaying beautiful built-ins, and surrounding a fireplace that beckons for your attention. It is also resting on top of a 10 car showplace garage that has room for any car collection or all the Colorado gear and toys you could imagine.

Location and Area

Main Residence

Built by Madera Construction, one of the premier builders in the region, this home was designed and engineered to span Coon Creek and integrate the home into the natural formation of the terrain. The uniqueness of the property with the stream running through it provided an opportunity to create a home that “bridged” the creek. With the master wing on one side of the main home and living and guest quarters on the other, the stream provides a natural separation.

Meander along the gently winding paved road which brings you through the lower pastures of Elkhorn Mountain Ranch onto the property and up to the main house. The babbling water feature and curved iron accents welcome you through the front door.

The soaring ceiling of the great room with crackling wood-burning moss rock fireplace, flows into the gourmet kitchen and formal dining room. With 180 degree windows, the curved walls of the dining room are matched by the curved dining room table and mahogany and birds eye maple built ins, making entertaining a delight. The kitchen is a chef’s dream with Dacor double ovens, two dishwashers, two refrigerators, ample granite counter space, and a spacious butler’s pantry. Don’t miss the pantry’s curved wall designed to match the curves in the dining room.

Double doors open to expand your entertaining area to multiple decks with built-in gas grill, stone fireplace and heater lamps – all adjacent to the creek. Enjoy your morning coffee or evening beverage listening to the tranquil song of the creek and watching the local wildlife amble on by.

Spanning the creek is the interior bridge with custom lighting to accent your art collection, and double doors out to the deck, allowing the music of the creek to follow you over to the master suite. On your way, you’ll pass an “office” where custom walnut cabinets, gas fireplace and walls of windows make “going to work” an absolute pleasure.

Completely private at the south end of the home, entering the master suite feels as if you’ve been transported to a spa. Italian marble accents the dual vanity, birch cabinetry and triple headed steam shower. Windows surround the jetted tub and open to the creek and waterfall. An outdoor shower truly lets you become one with nature! The master bedroom and lofted office/yoga/Pilates room continue the theme of unique architecture, walls of windows and private decks overlooking the creek.

Guests have their own private level with two bedroom suites and cozy sitting room which opens onto the reflecting pool.

Saving the best for last, the “tree house” is the icing on the cake of this architectural masterpiece. With the north and south walls comprised entirely of windows, you do truly feel as if you are in the most amazingly decadent tree house ever built. Creatively designed, the open room provides a sleeping area tucked behind the fireplace, media center, game/dining table as well as wet bar and ¾ bath. The common theme of decks opening onto the creek is continued in the tree house.

Guest House

Designed with long term guests or a caretaker in mind, this additional 2,069 square feet provides an additional two bedrooms and two baths to the estate. Built with the same quality and attention to detail as the main house, the guest house boasts radiant in-floor heat, air conditioning, gourmet kitchen with double ovens, 5 burner range, Jennaire refrigerator and separate wine refrigerator. The master suite offers a huge custom designed master closet and ample master bath. The west facing deck provides long views of the Animas Valley.

Car collectors will drool over the garage which has room for 8-10 cars and RV storage. There is plenty of room for a work bench and tools.

Tucked away from the main residences is a barn suitable for horses or extra storage. Another building is ther for all the toys required for the Durango lifestyle.
