Villa with a bit of history behind it.
Built in 1983 the 9000 square foot Spanish style Villa was built for the Maytag family. They were so concerned with building the highest quality home that they commissioned Gerald H Phipps commercial contractors to build their Colorado getaway. At the time the family spared no expense and gave architects a free hand in designing an authentic turn of the century Spanish villa. By the end, the project cost 2.5 million in construction which was an incredible amount of money in 1983.The current owners purchased the property from the Maytag's and since then have refined the property to make it the epitome of elegance and design you see today.
The Villa sits on 227 pristine acres that are protected in a conservation easement. The land has a little of bit of everything with forested hills, open meadows, and gorgeous rock outcroppings. There are extensive views of majestic snow capped peaks, peaceful valleys and the near town of Castle Rock. It's perfect for a private barn, equestrian center, corrals or just incredible hiking and sightseeing.
As you enter the home the first thing you'll notice is the flagstone walkway that leads to the spacious covered patio trimmed in Spanish tiles. This is the perfect place to enjoy incomparable panoramic views of Castle Rock and surrounding areas.
The foyer has a unique tile and wood beam flooring and an extraordinary free form spiral staircase.
The dining area was built for entertaining with its hand made French style doors, elegant stain glass cabinetry, exposed wood beams and easy access to the kitchen as well as a private courtyard.
The formal living room boasts a vaulted pine tongue and groove ceiling, wide oak wood floors and a dual sided fireplace.
The center piece of the kitchen is the large butcher block island. It's surrounded by custom cabinetry, double ovens, warming drawers, a sub zero refrigerator, dishwasher, trash compactor and pantry.
Meals can be shared in the breakfast room adjacent to the kitchen or outside in private courtyard, surrounded by a hill side of towering pines. The beautiful natural rock outcroppings are all enhanced by the Colorado sky.
The enormous main floor laundry could also double as a craft room as it is loaded with cabinetry and room for additional appliances.
A fourth bedroom is on the main level that features an attached green house. This is perfect for a guest room or for that person that cannot use the stairs as it has its own bath.
The family room is one of the focal points of the home featuring hard wood floors, an exposed wood beam ceiling, and a fully equipped wet bar including wine closet, refrigerator and ice maker. Cozy up next to fireplace or relax outside on the flagstone patio. Feel like a swim? A custom tile pool surrounded by pines, scrub oak and amazing view awaits you.
The main floor study is off the family room with plenty of built in shelving, a gun safe and a half bath perfect for that person that wants to work from home. In fact working from home has never been more pleasurable in a residence that breathes the Colorado Lifestyle.
At the end of the day your master suite welcomes you with French doors, triple crown molding, a wood burning fireplace, separate sitting area and more closet space than you could possibly use or want.
