Overview: Aspen Meadows Retreat, secluded among 114 acres of prime mountain land. The 114 acres is comprised of three separate, contiguous lots, two of which are buildable. The property does not have a Consevation Easement! The central 40-acre lot offers a beautiful Craftsman style home along a picturesque aspen-lined meadow. The home includes many upscale finishes and luxurious features, while the land offers pure serenity with exceptional accessibility. As one of the last large parcels left in Gilpin County, this property is conveniently located just a short drive from the quaint towns of Rollinsville and Nederland, as well as the recently enlarged Eldora Ski area. Access via State maintained Colorado Highway 6 and Highway 119 assures year-round accessibility – just 15 minutes from Black Hawk and Central City, and the Central City Parkway access to I-70; 45 minutes from Boulder/Golden, and 1 hour from Denver. Here, the mornings are crisp and the summer days cool, making it a great place to put your worries aside and really enjoy the outdoors.
The Home: Sitting amongst the thriving aspens, the comfortable 2,471 SF home offers a cozy mountain feel that beautifully integrates its scenic surroundings through its large windows and warm touches. The living room reveals stunning views of Longs Peak and has a crackling wood burning fireplace. Open to the living room, the spectacular kitchen offers custom cabinets, a large center island, soapstone and recycled glass countertops. Its upgraded appliances - such as a double convection oven, induction cooktop, and built-in, full-sized refrigerator and freezer - make cooking a joy and entertaining a breeze. Hickory floors lead you to the main floor master suite with over-sized soaking tub and beautiful slate tile. Located directly off the master, find your very own glass-enclosed, heated spa room, complete with a private hot tub and pine forest views. The upper level hosts two more bedrooms, a bathroom, a loft, and ample storage. Outside, take some time to relax on the tranquil wrap-around porch that is constructed of Ipe Brazilian hardwood. There are many other notable features this home has to offer: an attached 2 car garage, basement laundry and storage, standing seam metal roof, backup generator, Lennox furnace, whole house humidifier, and a gated entry to the private, paved driveway. In addition to the home, there is a 30x60 fully insulated shop with wood burning stove, separate 200-amp service, along with 240 volts - a great place to keep your camper, ATVs, snowmobiles, and other toys. Considering the attention to detail and significant features it offers, this home is truly remarkable.
The Property: Situated at 8,800 feet, the 114 acres is an undisturbed sanctuary of aspens, pine, wildflowers, and wildlife. The forest has been beautifully maintained, and includes both mature and young, healthy saplings. The acreage is very usable and offers a convenient trail system for ATV riding, secluded walks and other outdoor activities. These trails lead to a seasonal creek, with small holding ponds. As you take in the beauty all around you, you will also find a wide variety of fragrant wildflowers blooming from May through September, most notably the Rocky Mountain Columbine, Western Blue Flag Iris and endangered Wood Lily. To top it off, stunning views of Longs Peak, Meeker Peak and Sleeping Giant rock can be seen from high points throughout the property, as well as from the home itself. The property is sheltered by Golden Gate State Park to the east and Roosevelt National Forest, which abuts the land to the North. Hunting here is nothing short of outstanding. Elk and deer have been harvested most years. Trail cameras confirm the amount of game using this property, which includes Elk, Mule Deer, Moose, Bear, and smaller wildlife, too. With over 80% public land, Gilpin County is a recreational enthusiast’s dream. Activities here include hiking, biking, hunting, horseback riding, ATV riding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, downhill skiing, fishing, sightseeing, and much, much more.
Whether you are looking for a place to just unwind on weekends or live year- round, this little piece of heaven is truly one-of-a-kind.
