Spectacular telluride mountain village luxu… – vrbo electricity examples


Location: 106 Singletree Ridge, Telluride, Colorado, 81435 (on the Telluride Mountain Village Golf Course, only a few blocks from the Telluride Ski Area). Free shuttle service to all areas in the Mountain Village including the Ski Area and fine dining. Free gondola to Town of Telluride.

Designed by an award-winning architect, this spectacular, 6655 square foot home boasts 360-degree views of the surrounding San Juan Mountains, with a sweeping panorama that includes the three fourteen thousand foot peaks in the Wilson Range, Sunshine Peak and the entire San Sofia Ridge Mountains above Telluride. The siting of the home takes full advantage of these views with its abundant use of glass and spacious open design.

In addition, over 1900 square feet of decks and patios wrap-around the sunny side, to bring the outdoors into the home. You can see four complete holes of the Telluride Golf Course, tee to green, as well as a major portion of the Telluride Ski Area, from the Gondola to Gold Hill. With over 300 days of sunshine on average per year in Telluride, you will enjoy long sunny days and spectacular sunsets.

Not to be outdone by its surroundings, this home’s many unique features make it a truly spectacular and fun place to live. With superb stone and wood finishes, high-end appliances and fixtures, this incredible home includes: a live 35-foot black olive tree inside the home, a 38-foot fireplace structure with two fireplaces, an expansive 8-foot by 95-foot skylight system, custom cabinetry, an awesome sound and video systems (over 60 speakers), and many other special features.

This home is truly a sport-person’s retreat with the ski area only a few blocks away, the golf course right next door, a Home-Owner Association’s private tennis court about 200-feet away, and lots of mountain biking and cross country ski trails out your back door. Within the home is a large athletic room that includes a golf driving range, a tennis practice area, and Ping-Pong table. The family room includes a beautiful 8-½ foot Olhausen pool table and gas-burning fireplace. The upper loft includes a futon and reading area. There are two large indoor jetted hot tubs, one 7 person outdoor hot tub, and four showers, two of which are steam showers.

– side by side full-sized Subzero refrigerator and freezer, with approximately 40 cubic feet of cold storage with icemaker; (there are two more Subzero under-counter refrigerator/freezer combos with icemakers in the living room and family room wet bar areas);

This home worked out well for our family group of 12. We also hosted our extended family during the days, and it accommodated all 36 of us nicely. We fit 8 vehicles in the driveway (no street or garage parking allowed). A free local shuttle is available and popular.

The living room can easily seat 14+ adults. We sat 10 people around the dining table comfortably. The kitchen table seats another 6, plus another 5-6 seats outside on the partial-wrap deck, and another table with 4 seats in the study area off the living room.

The kitchen includes a variety of cookware and eating/serving utensils. We especially enjoyed the 2 prep islands, each with its own sink. We also found the open counter to be well suited for serving buffet style meals. And the outdoor gas grill was fun to cook hot dogs and make s’mores. A large laundry/storage room next to the kitchen was perfect for organizing the dry goods.

All of the above are on the main (entry) level, which also includes a nice sized half-bath as well as the main master suite with 2 (TWO!) private toilets and ample closet space. There is a mud room off the laundry room. A highlight is a live tree in the entry area, growing the full height of the house. Also the sky lights across the length of the home.

Access to lower and upper levels is by staircase from main level. The lower level has 2 bedrooms: 1) a second master suite with its own laundry room, and 2) a large bedroom with adjacent full bath for common use. The lower level also has a pool table, a partial-wrap patio with hot tub, and a "sunken" game room with ping pong table and golf driving cage.

All activities were abundantly supplied with equipment. There were even tennis rackets/balls for the neighborhood court less than a block away. The deck doubles as a putting range, and the living room coffee table had a built-in chess board.

Upstairs from the main level are 2 bedrooms with dressers (no closets), along with 3 beds in the open loft area. A ladder in the upstairs hallway leads to a small rooftop access loft, with bed directly under the skylights for awesome star gazing. These all share one bathroom.

We actually stayed here last Fall also, but for some reason our review didn’t get onto the site. We had virtually the same satisfaction this year as last. The owner, Denny, was very helpful and because of our late arrival, had stocked the kitchen with some items for our next morning’s breakfast. He lives on the property and obviously takes pride in the house. With all of the large windows, the mountain views while overlooking the golf course, are breathtaking. The large upper and lower wrap around deck areas allowed us to sit outside and enjoy the natural beauty (and the putting green carpet, with practice holes, was a novel idea). The entire house is thoughtfully laid out and I think could be enjoyed by a large group or small. At night, the large central chimney with multiple gas fireplaces gave the rooms a cozy feel. The kitchen included high end appliances, 2 sinks, 2 dishwashers, 2 microwaves, and large separate freezer and refrigerator. Everything we wanted, and more, was there and was clean. My wife and I slept in the master suite on the main floor, which had a King bed, an attached office space to do our work (good WIFI), vaulted ceilings, large flat screen TV, a view of Mount Wilson, huge walk in closet, steam shower, Jacuzzi style tub, and 2 toilet rooms. There were 2 other King Master Suites in the lower level and 2 bedrooms and a sleeping/lounging loft on the second floor. We loved the pool table in the game room. There was also another large (50′ x 12′ x 12′) play room with a batting/driving cage and ping pong table. There was a hot tub outside but we didn’t use it. There are outdoor tennis courts 100 yards away. Because the house faces South and has the tall ceilings, the sunlight steaming in the windows and the full length row of skylights, made it very bright and cheery. There is even a full sized tree growing up the center!! North facing log homes we have stayed in were dark and depressing. We used the free Dial-A-Ride shuttle service to pick us up and take us anywhere we wanted to go. It was very convenient for those evenings when we didn’t want to drink and drive or to just make a quick stop at the grocery store. In the winter it goes right to the lifts. The Gondola ride over the mountain into downtown was also very convenient. Denny has lived in Telluride for a long time and was very interesting to talk to. He knew much about the area, and it was interesting to hear his story about the building of this house.
