Imagine life in the mountains, peacefully undisturbed by the hustle and bustle of the city below. Your majestic, contemporary home sits peacefully atop Eagle Pines; solitary, but by no means lonely. The atmosphere of the home is warm and friendly. The stunning lofty ceilings capture your breath for a moment. The air in here is as fresh and open as it is outdoors. As you wander the home, it becomes evident that its design and layout were designed with great care and consideration; the home flows seamlessly between its many spacious rooms and cozy nooks. The vast great room serves as the centerpiece of the home, overlooking the unending mountain landscape.
As the day wears on, you decide to go for a hike. The National Forest, which abuts the property, allows direct access to many trails for both hiking and biking. In winter, it becomes the perfect ski in/ski out setting. Throughout your hike, you marvel at the humbling views of Hunter Creek and Buttermilk and Aspen Mountain. The scenery that surrounds you is simply indescribable.
After your outing, come into the kitchen for some lunch. It offers everything an aspiring chef could want—abundant storage space, a prep sink, miles of counter space, and more. Perhaps afterwards, you would like to settle on one of the comfy couches in the media room with a movie. Make yourself a drink from the bar, and relax until the credits roll.
The sun yawns over the home in the late afternoon, indicating that soon your guests will be arriving for your dinner party. An aspen grove reaches out along the driveway to greet them as they enter the property. The formal dining room is alight with the glow of good company, and kept cozy by the fireplace.
After dinner, some guests filter into the game room for a game of billiards. Others make their way to the outdoor pool, to swim beneath the stars as they take in the majestic mountain scenery. The evening ends with a cup of tea and your closest friends in one of the many cozy seating areas. A few guests choose to stay the night in one of the seven bedrooms. You settle yourself in your master suite and cap off the night with a glass of wine and a soak in the tub in the luxurious ensuite.
Life in the mountains is everything you ever dreamed of.
