The 145-acre property is set in Colorado ski country.

Slife Smith & Frampton

This 145-acre estate property outside Edwards, Colorado, is all about enjoying the great outdoors.

The aspen-dotted rolling hills contain 10 miles of custom trails designed for hiking, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. Along the paths are four picnic and play areas to rest and take in the scenery. One such stop features a wooden drawbridge and a timber castle.

But there’s more to do than explore the grounds. A stocked trout pond and a pistol and rifle range provide other recreational options.

Or head out for a day of skiing and snowboarding. Beaver Creek is just 13.5 miles away and Vail Ski Resort, 22 miles.

Windows run the length of the stone, wood and glass home.

Reached by way of a private half-mile driveway, the contemporary ranch house that anchors the spread is sited to maximize views of the Gore and Sawatch mountain ranges.

“You see them out every window,” says listing agent Kathy Bellamy of Slifer Smith & Frampton. “It takes your breath away.”

The home’s facade blends stone with board-and-batten siding. Massive windows run the length of the home. A porch with a deep overhang wraps the exterior.

Deep eaves create sheltered space for lounging, dining and an outdoor kitchen.

Inside, 300-year-old wood trusses imported from Austria, custom iron-and-glass light fixtures and hand-scraped reclaimed spruce floors create a relaxed yet refined atmosphere.

A buff limestone double-sided fireplace takes center stage in the two-story-high great room, which is topped with a vaulted beamed ceiling.

A double-sided fireplace sits at the center of the open-plan living space.

The open-plan family room on the other side of the fireplace flows into a dining area with seating for 10.

The roomy kitchen features top-of-the-line appliance, limestone counters and an over-sized wood-topped island.

The primary suite, with dual dressing areas and closets, sits on a ground floor corner. Upstairs are three en-suite bedrooms as well as a vaulted-ceiling office with a balcony.

A corner window brings extra light into the kitchen, which features an eat-at island.

The lower level has a tiered custom theater and a bunk room for a total of six bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Additional spaces within the 14,419-square-foot home include a sound-proof media room and a workout room.

A 30-foot chandelier spans all three levels of the central staircase.

A roomy office with a balcony could be converted into another bedroom.

There’s an outdoor kitchen, a stone-rimmed fire pit and two four-car garages.

Also on the grounds is a 2,636-square-foot caretaker’s home containing an office, two bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The circular fire pit takes in views of the surrounding mountains.

Priced at $29.75 million, 1904 Sendero Verde, Edwards, is located 8.5 miles from shopping in downtown Edwards. The property is zoned for equestrian use.
