Secluded on 13 acres in an exclusive Colorado area, this 8,402-square-foot home built with 12-inch pine logs and produced by Rocky Mountain Log Homes combines luxury with nature. It’s an all-season retreat with five bedrooms, five and a half baths, a guest apartment and a spacious great room.

The family-oriented design of the massive great room divides the space into sections, including a gourmet kitchen, a cozy breakfast area and a game area. The staircase is discreetly placed in the left corner when you first enter the great room, so attention is directed toward the room’s centerpiece, an impressive fireplace.

Expansive porches and decks extend living area outside and provide an escape for a breath of fresh air, to relax to the sound of the river footsteps away or to enjoy the mountain view. Additional outdoor amenities include a Jacuzzi, basketball court, barbeque gas grill and walking trails.

Once you’re exhausted from all of the fun, retire to one of the bedrooms or the wraparound sleeping loft. If work is necessary, there’s a private office off the enclosed hallway. Above the office and the garage is a small, yet functional guest apartment so guests can relax and come and go as they please.
