WHAT: A sweet, charming family home overlooking the Horse Ranch meadowlands and the Continental Divide beyond. This two-level house is designed with the great room and master suite all on the main entry level, and with the other guest bedrooms on the level below. Features include wood floors, vaulted beamed ceilings, huge picture windows, and a woodburning fireplace. There is a sunny deck ideal for morning coffee which is accessed from the living room and master, and another patio off the kitchen for lunch and dinner dining. All the guest bedrooms open out to a long terrace that extends out onto a yard that is ideal for children’s play, and on out to a platform deck looking over the views. That deck is ideal for reading, sunbathing, sharing drinks and meals with friends. In addition, attached to a spacious 2-car garage, there is a two-story caretaker apartment with a private entry and patio which has its own kitchen, bath and sleeping loft. This site, which backs up to open space, is so well landscaped along its lot lines, it’s extremely private.
WHERE: In the quiet Wildridge neighborhood on the sunny side of Snowmass.
WHY: An ideal home for a young family which, with the apartment, offers opportunities for a live-in nanny or housekeeper or, some extra income, if it’s rented to a local resident.
