This southern Colorado ranch is situated on 265 acres bisected by the Cuchara River and in the shadow of the Spanish Peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
Located in the heart of the property, with commanding views in all directions, is the exquisite 4,000-square-foot custom home with Mediterranean- and North African-inspired design.
A graceful entry with a large walk-in closet and wine room leads to the expansive great room, which features a beautiful articulated vaulted ceiling. Old hand-hewn beams provide a framework for the plaster walls of the living, dining and kitchen area. A library on the far side of the living room has floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a corner fireplace. There is one guestroom above the library and another at ground level.
Large windows frame still-life compositions of nature in every direction, and French doors access a central outdoor patio.
The master suite boasts sensational views of the Peaks, along with a fireplace and French doors leading to the patio. The master bath features Moroccan tile, a step-down double shower, hand-carved vanity and private outdoor shower. An office is located adjacent to the master suite.
Attention to detail is at the heart of this house from the hand-crafted doors, reclaimed white oak rafters, trusses and flooring, hand-carved mesquite cabinets and vanities combined with top-of-the-line appliances. The flagstone floors mirror the exterior geology. Moroccan influences are visible from the interior arches to the doors and lighting. Rastra block construction, stucco exterior, clay tile roof, reclaimed exterior beams and Dynamic windows complete the exterior.
