Now this is the Rocky Mountain way we're talking about!

Above the Clouds is an award-winning estate that sits on 30 acres of

land in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Evergreen, Colorado. This

magnificent residence with six bedrooms and eight bathrooms is the

epitome of high-life living. Additionally, there is an attached

guesthouse with two private decks, a putting green, and an over-sized

two-car garage. There is a gated pillared entrance of stone and rocks

that grants access to Above the Clouds

With the property on an elevation of 8,300 feet, the view from any

vantage point of this dwelling is absolutely breathtaking. The entire

surroundings are a vista that blends into the craggy and mountainous

terrain as if Mother Nature raised it herself. Built in 2000, the 21st

century stone-and-stucco residence is palatial. There is a spiral

staircase that looks out at the mountain range through floor-to-ceiling

windows that is mesmerizing.

Above the Clouds won the prestigious 2000 Bar Award from the Home

Builder's Association of Metro Denver for Best Custom Home Over 7,000

Square Feet. The Rocky Mountain mansion is ultra modern and brims with

contemporary luxuries and natural gifts of the land. There is a fully

stocked trout pond with three waterfalls nearby the guests' parking

area. The best of Colorado's outdoor activities are a short drive away.

The main house features a home theater, a spacious kitchen with the

finest of appliances and cabinetry, and a bar with a wine cellar. Each

room contains exotic wood or stone flooring and finishing touches that

add depth to the overall decorum. The central room features a

28-foot-high ceiling with see-through glass roof panels and a circular

fireplace. There are waterfalls indoors and outdoors that unite the

interior and exterior living space seamlessly. A heated courtyard and

an indoor koi-fish pond are examples of how the inside and outside

mesh.

There is ample room for entertaining and luxuriating both indoors and

outdoors. There also is a four-car tandem garage and an adjacent heated

area with sufficient space for a studio, a gym, or whatever the next

owner may desire.

Away from it all but still...

wildflowers, ponderosa, fir and aspen trees and huge moss rock granite

crags and boulders. Even though living at Above the Clouds is remote

and set off from the paths most often traveled, it is good to know that

the Denver International Airport is approximately an hour's drive away,

and that getting to downtown Denver from Evergreen takes half that

time.Above the Clouds is on the market for $5.6 million. Contact: Keith Tobler of Mountain Realty Group (303) 916-3751. Website: MountainTrophyHome.com
