“Shock and awe….Amazing….The best home I’ve ever seen, period”.
This mountain-style retreat has everything you could want in a 42,000 square foot home nestled on a 72 rolling acres with views of The Rocky Mountains fro Parker, Colorado. This magnificent home took seven years to complete the perfect getaway for an affluent family. Actually, it is reminiscent of an exclusive corporate retreat with its 9 bedrooms and baths, indoor pool, bowling alley, exercise center and much, much more.
Fully protected by a gate, 24 hour infrared video camera surveillance, and a full time staff, this piece of paradise offers total seclusion with a feeling of the wide-open spaces. I thought this is where Lorne Greene would be at home in a modern day Ponderosa.
The views from a dozen of mountain-facing private patios and decks are truly amazing. Wildlife runs abundantly on the property grounds. The land is brimming with tall pines, Aspen trees and gently rolling hills. Above is the private pond with an authentic, Japanese tea house.
This view of hills and front range of the Rocky Mountains is from the main terrace. It’s one of many outdoor spaces through out the home and grounds.
This intimate living room shows how formal the home is. Almost Tuscan in it’s flavor, its formal spaces are plentiful. Marble and stone are used liberally though out the main level.
All spaces in this home are built to be used by the family. But, many of the common spaces are large enough to accommodate a conference or retreat.
The library includes a full bar area and state-of-the-art technology. This is country living with all the amenities of the city…under one roof.
His and hers separate master suites are adjacent to each other. Each has it’s own detailed bath, enormous closets, and stunning mountain views.
Entertainment is everywhere. This is the two lane bowling alley on the lower level. There is also a full movie theater.
The indoor pool also has a full exercise room next door. There are even separate men’s and women’s locker rooms that resemble those found in the finest athletic clubs.
The property also boasts a lively dance hall to boogie the nights away. It’s all right here in what feels like the middle of nowhere. But, it’s only 35 minutes to Denver.
What’s the price tag for the lifestyle of the rich and famous? In this case, it’s only $22 million. Appointments are available with financial qualification. I slipped by without submitting my balance sheet. I told them the dog ate it.
