Sitting on a pristine four-acre estate with a private pond, leafy treescapes, and flowing mountain streams lies a storybook chateau. Here, secluded cabin vibes combined with majestic mountain views set the stage for the perfect Rocky Mountain getaway. The home’s easy ski access from nearby slopes, along with the proximity to the Village Core ensures guests are ideally situated to take full advantage of Telluride's incredible paradise.
The home’s exterior facade is classic Mountain Village architectural styling, combining rustic wood detailing with lots of gorgeous stonework. In contrast, interiors are modern and stylish, yet laced with a sophisticated old-world feel.
Step inside, to a charmingly elaborate living room that has vaulted ceilings with hearty wood beam trim, timber flooring, and lots of wood and rustic stone detailing. A huge glass wall captures stunning backyard views and makes it feel as if sitting outside. A flatscreen Tv and a crackling fireplace built into a rustic stone wall, create an ideal spot for curling up in the evenings on a plush leather sofa or a cowhide patterned armchair.
Another casual sitting area offers a sublime space for casual conversations or entertaining large parties. Here, you can sip on martinis and tropical cocktails at the fully-equipped wet bar or relax next to another roaring fireplace on the leather sofa with oriental carpeting.
The formal dining room is a real haven for the frequent entertainer. The dining table seats eight guests under an elk-antler chandelier, facing an arched timber doorway that allows easy guest and host communication.
An adjoining terrace lends an alfresco feel to the dining area, where your entire group can get together to enjoy lazy summer evenings, family barbeques, and soothing baths in the jetted hot tub.
The streamlined timber kitchen has the same mountain charm that characterizes the rest of the home. A central island houses a golden sink and doubles as a breakfast bar. The kitchen comes with bespoke cabinetry and an integrated premium of stainless steel appliances. These include a drip coffee maker, an extra wide-oven, a six burner stove top, and grill.
The Primary suite, with elevated views, perfectly combines comfort with five-star luxury. Soaring wood-beam ceilings give the room a grand sense of proportion, while a sumptuous king-size bed made with plush lines faces a crackling fireplace and flatscreen television. The spa-like ensuite has dual sinks, a deep soaking tub, and an enclosed glass shower with bench seating.
Two more bedrooms complete the sleeping areas. The first room has a large desk with a work chair, a queen sleeper sofa, and ensuite. Whether you need a work office or a spare bedroom, you can convert this extra room into whatever you need. The third bedroom has two twin beds, and a leather couch with a flatscreen Tv. The attached bathroom comes with premium luxury amenities and a step-in glass shower.
Founder’s Retreat is luxury living designed for the entertainer with easy ski access, dedicated service, and awe-inspiring views. If you're looking for an escape from the city and busy work life with old-world prestige mixed with modern luxury, then you can’t go past Founder’s Retreat.
