Stay at Stutzhaven in the Mountains and you'll experience mountain life on the North End of Estes area, a prestigious neighborhood with big acreage and open spaces punctuated by sweeping views of the Continental Divide. This home was one of the first earth-sheltered homes in the Estes Valley and is heated by the thermal warmth of the mountainside and a bit of electricity. Wander up the walk to the entry that is sheltered by berms covered in wild mountain grasses.
As you enter the home, step into the Great Room to your right. You'll notice this home's masterpiece focal point, the hearth-to-ceiling copper clad wood burning fireplace flanked by spacious windows that showcase Longs Peak and the peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park. The gorgeous golden pine tongue and groove walls and ceiling will wrap around you like a warm embrace. This Great Room offers an open-concept kitchen plus a living and dining area with a wall of windows that bring the outdoors right in.
The kitchen is fully equipped for entertaining and creating great meals during your stay. And the cook will never be alone thanks to the ample bar and barstools. You'll love admiring the aspens and mountain featured in the beautiful stained glass artisan window above the dining table. No matter where you sit in this great room, the comfy sofas, the dining table, kitchen or curled up in the rocking chair next to the fireplace, you'll have the amazing backdrop of the Rocky Mountains to admire.
Move to the outdoors easily through one of the two doors to the stone wall protected patio. The patio wraps around the west end of the home providing places to sit and admire the view or enjoy dining outdoors.
Step back into the hallway and explore the two bedrooms. To the right is the guest room featuring a Queen bed and the flip-side of the beautiful stained glass window between this room and the dining area. There is a bath with a shower next to this room.
