Colorado is known for the Rockies, the Mile High City, and lots of American micro-brewed beer. It also boasts some of the most beautiful terrain in the United States.
And this time of year, the high-altitude aspen foliage creates a breathtaking vision.
Sotheby’s recently listed Singing Elk Ranch in Yampa, Colo. The property includes 428 acres of luscious Colorado land.
The cherry on top has to be the luxury two-story cabin that creates the classic rustic, yet homey edge that makes it a dream mountain getaway.
There’s no arguing with the view of the Flat Top Mountains, a private swimming dock, and the surrounding forest.
However, the inside of this home looks like a postcard from the Wild West. The lodge-style living room has a stone fireplace that creates a warm mountain atmosphere.
Exposed lumber keeps the log cabin aesthetic consistent in every one of the five charming bedrooms.
The rustic charm continues in the fully equipped kitchen. Some antique enamelware mugs and a pot of warm stew would finish off this bright space.
And the kitchen flows into a rustic dining room with views for miles. This is probably the best seat in the house to look out for those namesake elk.
Or maybe it’s here on this porch. Seriously, someone needs to write and direct a film on the scale of The Notebook utilizing this incredible space.
Anyone who has spent time in high altitudes knows how cold it gets as soon as the sun goes down. Cold Colorado evenings require a fully equipped fire pit and low chairs for snuggling up.
On even colder winter nights, the game room would be a fitting alternative to the great outdoors.
According to the Sotheby’s listing, this house is on the market for $4.5 million and is part of the Five Pines Mesa.
That means there’s snow removal and road maintenance perks included in the deal for whoever gets to live out their mountain lifestyle fantasies at this place.
