The property is located in one of the more established rural areas south of Steamboat Springs. Access is via mostly paved roads that gently gain elevation to a ridge with views of the surrounding mountain ranges.
The land is mostly tree covered with Gambel Oaks. These trees generally reach 20-30 feet in height and when trimmed can create a dramatic canopy. The location of the house surrounded by the grove of oaks interspersed with pines and aspens private and scenic.
The house consists of just over 4,600 square feet of quality construction. The size of the house coupled with the well-thought-out floor plan is ideal for mountain living. A spacious mudroom and powder room are located just off of the oversized garage. The main level master is private and has direct views of the Steamboat Ski Area. The kitchen has a breakfast nook and a large pantry. The living room, with large windows and vaulted ceilings, flows easily from the entrance to an elegant study/office and a formal dining room. The lower level consists of an additional family room and bedrooms. There is access to outdoor decks and patios from almost every room of the house.
A barn-style outbuilding has room for additional vehicles or ATV’s and snowmobiles.
Hiking, horseback riding and snowshoeing are convenient to the property. A 4,000 acre public recreation area is within a 5 minute drive. About half of the land in the county is public and access to these lands is a short drive in any direction.
Sky Mountain Ranch strikes a balance between quiet country living and close proximity to town. It has a beautiful home with very good views of the surrounding mountain ranges. The property has year round access on county maintained roads and is an easy drive to the boutique shops, restaurants and galleries of Steamboat Springs.
