Perfectly sited on 35 acres near the Cuchara River with expansive views of the Spanish Peaks, Casa Estrella is a masterfully crafted Colorado mountain home. Professionally and thoughtfully designed for mountain living, the large windows capture the commanding views in every direction year round. While only nine years old, the Mediterranean-inspired home with Rastra block construction, smooth stucco exterior and clay tile roof and extensive landscaping gives one the sense that this home has been part of this beautiful valley for decades.
The kitchen and great room areas located in the center of the home are graced by a vaulted, timber frame ceiling made from re-claimed hand-hewn beams The sculpted, hand plastered walls and custom stone floors create an old-world feel perfect for entertaining or simply enjoying quiet moments by the over-sized fireplace. The cabinets are exquisitely crafted from mesquite and accompanied by top-of-the-line appliances, including an AGA range and Subzero refrigerator. A large covered patio area on the south side of the home provides a sanctuary space to watch the moon rise over the peaks next to the custom built fire pit while the elk and deer slowly appear on the surrounding meadows. Enjoy outdoor cooking on the professional grade, Viking grill.
Purposely located nearest the Cuchara River, the master suite ensures the sounds of running water during the summer months, utmost privacy and sensational views of the Spanish Peaks. The master bath is a masterpiece unto itself with beautiful Moroccan tile, a step down double shower, hand carved vanity and a private outdoor shower. A large walk-in closet off the master bath is both functional and beautifully built from all reclaimed materials. An office is located adjacent to the master suite. On the far side of the living room are the library and guest rooms. With ceiling-to-floor bookshelves and corner fireplace the library is the ultimate space in which to retreat. Above the library is one guest room, with another at ground level with an adjoining bath.
