Gateway to the San Juan / Telluride Wilderness

It has often been said that one should go where you feel the most alive. Painstakingly constructed from three pre-civil war barns, Wilson Way offers a gateway to a lifestyle that captures the allure of the rugged wilderness from its doorstep and beyond to what seems like an infinity of beauty called the San Juan Mountains laced with 14,000 ft. peaks, old growth forests and lush mountain meadows. One needn’t escape the residence to sense the wonder of the immense frame work of beauty beyond, as the home’s design is uniquely a part of its environment with a sensation that the jagged peaks beyond can be touched by the hand of its owner. The foreground envelopes acres of lushly landscaped grounds and stone hardscape along with a reflective, spring fed, stone lined pond teeming with trout. Literally, the residence’s exquisite living spaces are as much outside as under roof with a backdrop of free sunsets/sunsets and total privacy.

The Master wing is conveniently situated on the main level opening to its own patio and outdoor palapa-like kitchen / bar beyond. The balance of the 2.5 story great room with massive wood burning fireplace with stone surround effortlessly flows to a den, circular dining area beneath a tower office, and chef’s kitchen with breakfast nook. The residence comfortably lives on one level with the ability to accommodate generations of family and friends on an upper level accommodating 4 guest suites. When the sun sets, entertainment moves to the lower level with media and family rooms, gym and an library. All finishes are upscale and perfectly blend with the rustic barn’s post and beams. The location is next to nothing but picturesque wilderness, yet twenty minutes from all of the regional amenities that the Telluride Resort has to offer.
