This elegant three-story home was designed by architect Vija Handley of Boulder, CO. Starting with the entrance way, a beautiful mosaic medallion imported from Jordan, greets you. The light-filled rooms, high ceilings and unique angles, along with the D-log exterior construction, give a sense of warmth but modern comfort. The main level boasts a beautiful southwest-style stucco wood burning fireplace, wood floors, built-in bookcases and dining bench and large windows overlooking the west deck balcony and out to the meadow, where the local elk herd often grazes. The master bedroom has large windows and a skylight that give ample meadow, forest and mountain views, and best of all, allow views of the Milky Way at night. The pass-through closet off of the bedroom also leads to the main full bathroom. The lower level includes a bedroom, a 3/4 bath with a steam shower, a laundry room, mud room and back door, leading to the home's screened-in porch. The third level includes a bedroom, a 3/4 bath, and an office or art studio, (highlighted by clerestory windows) and a large storage room. This family home has been well-loved for its cozy interior and its placement in a gorgeous aspen grove. Other features include a two-car garage, security system, radiant in-floor heating, crystal-clear well water, a garden, flagstone patio, and many beautiful aspen and conifer trees. Included in the sale are a single axle trailer, a Craftsman wood splitter and a 15 HP Husqvarna snow blower. Situated in the back 1/3 of Forbes Park, there are no burn scars or blackened trees to interfere with the beauty of the surroundings. The peace and quiet of the back of the park also features wildlife galore, including deer, elk, bobcat, bear, turkeys, and myriad birds and butterflies. Forbes Park is a gated, very safe community. The HOA maintains the roads (snow plowing in the winter!) and provides trash removal. 1/3 of Forbes Park is common land with beautiful mountain meadows for your enjoyment.
