Luxury Real Estate in Colorado: 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, Colo. 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...

Above the Clouds is spread over 30 acres of nature's finest with 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 at (303) 916-3751. Visit MountainTrophyHome.com for further details.

What a great list. And not only does Crested Butte have great mountain biking but so does neighboring Gunnison where it stays dry well into November. Gunnison's Hartman Rocks offers amazing single track riding, scenic vistas, and tons of fun!===http://www.travelfront.com
