Welcome to your private, peaceful and rejuvenating island in the sky! This exceptional custom home boasts 360 degree views from every point on the property. You can relish the light reflecting off the magnificent red cliffs, taking on different hues as the day stretches from dawn to dusk. Falls Creek Ranch offers 840 acres of common lands, a 40-acre lake and much more. The home was built to last a lifetime by one of Southwest Colorado's finest builders, Galbraith Builders, Inc. As you enter the foyer under a beautiful lighted coffered ceiling, the great room beckons you into a dramatic sense of space. Vaulted ceilings with exposed rafter wood beams and skylights give a feeling of quality and grandeur. Your fine art collection can be displayed within the best possible lighting. A floor to ceiling native moss rock fireplace wraps its arms around you for winter warmth while large Pella windows/French doors capture sunlight flawlessly. Beautiful granite counters compliment the bright, high-end kitchen. It opens to a large dining area and great room where guests can easily interact. A kitchen island with cook top and counter offers more seating in the heart of culinary activity. A few steps down from the main level, the master suite and sitting area also has breathtaking private views. A corner kiva fireplace provides intimate warmth and ambiance. Just outside the French doors, a spacious hot tub is ready to cap off a day at the lake or hiking miles of private trails. A large walk-through closet includes impressive storage from floor to vaulted ceiling. High-grade maple cabinetry provides abundant storage throughout the home. Outside, there are over 1,800 square feet of custom-designed decks. A perfectly positioned, screened-in gazebo offers a private area to enjoy meals. The well-designed, drought tolerant and firewise landscaping embellish the indigenous landscape. Two large bedrooms on the upper level are currently being used as an office and art studio. The studio has a queen Murphy bed, direct access to one of the bathrooms and its own covered deck for fun outdoor living. The lower level bonus room, accessed through the garage, is ideal for an exercise room, hobby studio, wine cellar, etc. A paved driveway and parking areas clean and easy access, with space for a large RV and full hook-ups.
