Kick up your heels in this grandiose mountain estate spanning over 9,500 sq. ft. on 331+ acres. Catering to the equestrian owner, the ranch was developed with horses in mind and has a luxurious 5-stall barn with a caretaker’s apartment and heated tack room. Having every imaginable accessory, the home has 5 bedrooms plus his and her offices, 8.5 bathrooms and a 2,000 sq. ft. attached 4-car garage. Only the words “sheer country elegance” could best describe this manor appointed with native log beams, immense stone fireplace and floor-to-ceiling picture windows to soak in the panoramic views. The kitchen is fit for a gourmet chef with stainless Viking appliances, double oven, full-size side-by- side refrigerator and freezer and two drawer refrigerators, double dishwashers and two glass washers, and stunning granite countertops. The living room has mammoth cathedral ceilings and a broad-sweeping, walkout deck that includes an outdoor stone fireplace and kitchen with Viking grill. The master bedroom is embellished with a romantic fireplace laid in ornate tile, accent lighting and lavish master bathroom with steam shower. The downstairs family room is a superb place to entertain your guest with a dazzling saloon, gaming area/theater room and lots of room to roam. Another hallmark of the property is an exquisite pond water feature with soothing waterfall. The property’s acreage is adjacent to public BLM land for endless horseback riding, hiking and cross-country skiing. Or simply kick back, watch and enjoy the countless elk, deer and various other wildlife that call Emerald Mountain Ranch their home.
It all started on the beautiful West Coast of California in the San Francisco Bay area. Colorado was always the home of my family, so - off with the sandals and on with the ski boots - the family arrived in Littleton, Colorado. In 1976, I attended CSU and then soon found myself wanting a career in the healthcare field.
After graduating from the Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing and Radiologic Science, I was employed as manager of Boulder Memorial Hospital Trauma CT Unit.
