35060 Priest Creek Rd, Steamboat Springs, Colorado
For sale: $5.475 million
The scenery surrounding this 36-acre spread on the edges of Steamboat Springs cannot be beat. It backs onto forest land and is a short drive from a world-class ski resort.
But if you're a child — or a child at heart — the most exciting feature of this ranch home is its massive bunk room. It holds four queen-size beds, each with its own loft, storage area and sink. The room also shares an extra-large bathroom with two showers, two toilets and a fifth sink.
Just down the hall, adults can relax in the wine room, which holds 1,500 bottles and a built-in wine bar with granite counters.
The 9,245-square-foot home has five bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms and a great room with pecan floors and a two-story stone fireplace. The open kitchen has alder cabinets, a double oven and an adjoining breakfast area with a built-in Miele coffee station and a private deck overlooking the valley.
Elk and sandhill cranes frequent the property, which includes a creek-fed pond, a hot tub and an outdoor wood-burning fireplace. The master suite has a fireplace, a soaking tub and a private deck with sunset views and the sounds of a creek flowing by.
The home is part of a 350-acre shared ranch community with trails, a ranch manager and horse stables, Paoli said.
