An inviting, warm farmhouse-style home which celebrates the rich history of ranching in the Roaring Fork Valley. Inspired by an Americana theme, this home is layered with reclaimed wood floors, hand-hewn timbers, millwork, custom-hammered door hardware, and rare reclaimed stone pavers, setting the scene for memorable fireside gatherings of family, grandchildren and friends. Unlike so many spec houses available in Snowmass, this home was designed for these sellers, was made to feel welcoming, and is filled with heart. Virtually everything in home was either custom-designed, from the furniture to bath vanities and tiles, or represents the finest antiques, circa 1850. Great room, dining area and den with floor-to-ceiling library were all designed to entertain a crowd, or for curling up and relaxing. A spectacular master suite on main level with deck overlooking trail, views to Cont'l Divide, and a huge bath and His/Hers closets. Three en suite guest bedrooms on lower level, along with a small fitness room. Over the garage is a registered caretaker apt (5th bedroom) with its own entry for your nanny, chef, manager or local employee. All of this was created with a level of elegance and quality not often found in Snowmass.
In addition, there is a generous ski room which is just steps away from the Two Creeks private ski trail - easy access in and out, even for beginners. Gorgeous gardens and magical stone paths surround the house, and the ski trail is covered with wildflowers in the summertime. There is a snowmelt driveway and a thoughtfully designed and fully-furnished wrap-around back porch, also right on the trail - ski-in/out, hike or bike in/out. This is one extraordinary home nestled in the woods in Snowmass at the top of Two Creeks, designed to encourage a family's enjoyment of all the recreational opportunities right outside the door - that's why it's called Happy Trails.
