Spectacular 70-acre Retreat in the Gray Head Wilderness Preserve
Telluride, CO, USA
PARADISE FOUND – For those seeking a wilderness lifestyle, but just down the road from all resort amenities, absolute privacy atop the highest knoll in the Gray Head Wilderness Preserve offers up the ultimate retreat for generations of family. Located on 70 acres with sweeping 360-degree views of the iconic Telluride mountain backdrop, the residence was artfully crafted from three historic 1800s tobacco Pennsylvania barns.
The great room, warmed by a 2.5-story, doubled-sided, wood-burning stone fireplace, enjoys walls of glass perfectly framing the peaks beyond and stone-lined pond below. The floorplan flows invitingly to a chef’s kitchen, breakfast nook and dining alcove. All 4 bedrooms with ensuite baths occupy the main level, with the master suite occupying its own wing inclusive of a workout room, steam shower, fireplace and private patio.
Perched in the beams and rafters above are intriguing loft walkways overlooking the living area below and an office to electronically connect to the ‘hustle and bustle’ seemingly light years away. Remodeled with a mountain contemporary flare in 2019, all finishes are upscale and blend perfectly with the rustic barn’s posts and beams. An impeccably-finished (Kentucky tobacco wood) cabana with refrigerator, wood-burning fireplace and bar fronts a second stone-lined pond teaming with trout and fed by a waterfall.
ULTIMATE CONVENIENCE: All Grayhead Wilderness Owners have access to the Auberge-managed, trailside Element 52 Residences’ amenities, including parking, ski valet and rental, workout facility.
