8474 Hillside, Serene Lakes

 

If you searched the world over, you would be hard pressed to find a better house for the cross-country skier. Before we even get to the house, which is incredible, let’s consider the location. About 100 yards from 8474 Hillside Drive is Royal Gorge, the nation’s largest cross-country ski resort. Royal Gorge is receiving high marks from skiers after a new owner and new management team from Sugar Bowl took over last year. From the lodge you can head out to Point Moriah and witness the 4000 foot drop into the Royal Gorge itself, or you could head towards The Wall and check out the sublime view of Devil’s Peak. Actually you can ski there for a week, and never get tired of all the good skiing. And to make it even better, you are going to have plenty of time to enjoy all that skiing, because this area is blessed with bounteous quantities of the white stuff.

Great room

Now that your interest is piqued, it gets even better: The house is awesome.  We can start where only any skier would start. In the waxing room. That’s right. This place has it’s own waxing room. It’s a skiers dream.

Then we see the rest of the home. With interior stairs, partially covered decks, enclosed hot tub and gently sloping driveway this place is designed to make life easier when the snow flies. The spectacular great room is cheery and loaded with light. The soaring ceiling and numerous windows offer lovely forest views. Then there’s an oversized garage for toys, boat, snowmobiles etc, dumbwaiter, hydronic heat, fun reading/sleeping nooks and an observatory for star gazing! Whew.

All in all you get a hefty 2500 square feet of living space, with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths in this custom built home that was built in 2002. Even if you are not a Nordic fanatic this home is a great place to be (yeah, yeah, Sugar Bowl is just down the road a piece), but of course if your winter world revolves around skating up steep hills and gliding across mountain meadows…then this place is your big piece of heaven. Perhaps the world’s greatest piece of Nordic heaven.   No matter what you love about the mountains this property is definitely worth a look!   $799,000
