Evergreen custom raised ranch on 1.2 acres built in 2008 that lives like new! High vaulting throughout the entire main floor combine with huge windows and gleaming hardwood floors to create a soothing and comfortable environment. The kitchen is a chef's dream with hickory cabinets, intelligently placed can lights over the working spaces and elegant hanging pendants for more light over the granite island. The wide open concept allows for mountain views through the home. The primary suite is quietly tucked away on the main floor and has a huge walk-in closet and a very nice five piece bath. The home has a great yard surrounded by ponderosas and aspen creating tranquil privacy and the fenced backyard keeps animals in even when the deer and elk wander by. The house is well designed providing visibility and connectivity between living areas both inside and out. Must see to appreciate! The chinked siding along the entryway adds a rustic Colorado touch. Downstairs is a huge area that can be locked off as a separate 2 bedroom apartment- for possible use as a short term rental (STR) through VRBO or AirBNB. Or it functions well as a second family room with two bedrooms sharing a full bath. West facing decks capture the Rocky Mountain grandeur. Just seconds from The Bistro at Marshdale for dinner and drinks or the Marshdale Burger Co and close to the Kinney Peak open space and Marshdale Elementary.
