Five Star Ranch's property is exceptional which Includes a 71.6 deeded acres and 490 acres of leased State Land, the ranch is situated at about 8000 feet in southern Colorado's Wet Mountain Valley, considered by many to be one of Colorado's most scenic undiscovered locations. The 500+ acres controlled by the ranch is a mix of grassy meadows, rugged rock outcroppings and a mature forest estimated to contain 30,000 ponderosa pines.
Five Star Ranch is exceptional in the artistry and architecture of its award-winning lodge-like ranch house. Featured as Timber Home Living's "Home of the Year" in 2009, this custom-designed timber frame home is 10,292 square feet of unmatched mountain luxury. Its lodge-like feel begins with its unique 42-foot arched canopy marking its main entrance. This entrance leads to a vast great room with 22-foot high ceilings with a walk-around natural stone fireplace, large dining area and a kitchen equipped with high-end appliances. Over all this space spreads a vaulted, open beam ceiling that completes the blend of rustic/modern styling that captures the best of the surrounding environment. Infloor heating throughout keeps the main house very comfortable twelve months of the year.
A master suite is accessed off of the great room, which includes its own fireplace. Completing the main level is a five car garage. Upstairs via an open spiral staircase lies a reading room and a unique observation room that creates a space that captures 360 degrees of mountain views. The lower level of the main house is 4130 square feet, fully finished, and has a private office, gym and full bathroom.
A short hike into the woods leads to a refurbished rustic cabin, perfect for star gazing. Two large metal shops with overhead garage doors complete the improvements at Five Star Ranch and allow plenty of work space for vehicles and other equipment.
