Sprawling estate by Elk Pond in Mountain Village - the perfect home for a family get-together! This four-bedroom home enjoys a high degree of privacy from a tranquil, alpine setting that is very convenient to both the slopes and the free Gondola that connects the towns of Telluride and Mountain Village.

The home is accessed through the front door, tucked inside a welcoming alcove below the porte cochere that graces the front of the home. Entering the front door and passing through the convenient mud room brings you to the great room, a welcoming space inspired by a Frank Lloyd Wright conversation pit. The great room has vaulted ceilings and large windows framing the mountain vistas. There is a wet bar, a massive gas fireplace adorned in stacked native stone and a plethora of comfortable seating. To the right of the Great Room is the formal Dining Room with seating for 10. Adjacent to the dining room is the openly designed kitchen, with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and ample storage. The open floor plan extends beyond the kitchen to the media room, with large flatscreen TV and seating for the entire group.

A door from the media room leads to the extensive back patio, a serene setting overlooking Elk Pond with ample deck furniture, a fire pit and a gas grill. The patio also has a luxurious private hot tub. A half bath and laundry room share the hallway that leads from the media room to the 2-car garage.

Above the great room is the master suite, featuring a king bed, flatscreen TV, impressive mountain views and a luxurious master bath that features double sinks, steam shower and a large, jetted tub. A long hallway extends away from the great room to three more bedrooms. The first bedroom has a king bed and the second bedroom has two queen beds. These first two bedrooms share a full bath with shower that is accessed via the same hallway. At the end of the hall is the guest master suite with a king bed, full bath with shower/tub combo. All three of these bedrooms have flatscreen TVs.

There is a separate guesthouse above the garage occupied year-round that shares no access to the main home.
