On the Market: Colorado Summer Dream Home

A charming retreat with just the sort of laid-back Colorado elegance we’d be happy to call home



Location: Woody Creek, Colorado

What We Love About It: Incredible outdoor living spaces—complete with tranquil reflecting pools, splashing water features and stunning sculpture—worthy of the spectacular mountain setting. The rustic-grand lodge ain't bad either.

Listing Price: $20 million

While we certainly believe in the magical delight of a snowy mountain day, winter’s deep freeze can also inspire dreams of sun-kissed summer afternoons lolling in luxury. If we could snap our fingers and suddenly switch seasons, this charming place, surrounded by wildflowers and water, has just the sort of laid-back Colorado elegance we’d be happy to call home.

With 16 verdant acres and heart-stopping views for miles, we could forget about scraping ice off the car and dressing in four layers for a while. Maybe we’d start by throwing away our snow boots and tiptoeing down the paths to explore the various open-air seating and picnic areas, or have a swing in the hammock while enjoying the fragrance of the flowers and the playful spritz of the water features.

Indoors, impressive stonework sets a noble Old World tone, with exposed beams and grand-proportioned spaces giving an airy yet rustic feel. The 11,645-square-foot home boasts five bedrooms, five full- and three half-baths, a gourmet kitchen with butler’s pantry and breakfast nook, a handsome wine cellar, plush in-home theater, tempting billiard room and fully equipped exercise room.

Of course we all love winter, but the next time you feel the blast of a tooth-rattling chill, there’s nothing wrong with warming up to a little Colorado daydream.
