Tucked in among towering Ponderosa pines in the exclusive gated community of Hidden Valley Ranch (HVR), with expansive views of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and Hidden Valley Lake, sits 601 Piney Place. The all timber-framed construction on 52.7 acres blends with the natural beauty of its forested setting, encompassing a 5,067-sqft, three-bedroom, three and a half-bath main home; a 2,365 sqft, two-bedroom, three-bath guest home; and a caretaker's studio apartment located above a separate three-car garage. Luxury meets rustic flair with exposed timber, stacked stone, and custom ironwork throughout this impeccably designed residence, featured in Cowboys and Indians Magazine. The spectacular spaces maximize indoor and outdoor living with distinctive gathering places, and intimate rooms for privacy. The heart of the home offers an inviting living and dining room area, where massive windows frame impressive mountain and lake views. An open, native-rock fireplace divides the two rooms, providing a dramatically welcoming focal point that creates warmth and stature, with a two-story vaulted ceiling above. Adding to the allure of the home is a 250 year-old staircase from a Hacienda in Mexico and carved from a piece of Sabino cedar. The gourmet kitchen, with a Viking gas range, large island with prep sink, Sub-Zero refrigerator, spacious storage, and walk-in pantry, facilitates the chef in creating a meal for two or larger gathering with all your family and friends. The primary suite has floor-to-ceiling views of Hidden Valley Lake and the surrounding mountains. In addition, a stacked stone wall brings the rustic wilderness feel into this space. Relax and rejuvenate in a spacious spa-like bath with a large soaking tub, an inviting steam shower, an infrared sauna, and an outdoor Jacuzzi. The back teak deck and covered slate patio with fireplace provide the perfect place for entertaining, or solitude when watching the Alpenglow set on the mountains. The separate private space for guests only adds to the appeal of this extraordinary estate. Matching the design and feel of the primary residence, the magnificent three-level guest house is 2,365 sqft and provides two + bedrooms, three full baths, a sizable kitchen, and living area. There is also a caretaker's studio above the three-car garage.
