By Tricia Swenson | Off the Hill
Situated among the aspen trees at the Ranch at Cordillera, 308 Bearden Road offers a mountain retreat your family and friends can enjoy year round.The timeless design of this six -bedroom home has separate entertaining areas perfect for accommodating guests or multi-generations of family. The spacious kitchen features professional-grade appliances for the gourmet and everyone can hang out near the cook with an adjacent hearth room and breakfast nook that’s east facing, perfect for the morning sun.Prepare to entertain on the lower level. A movie theater, full bar, wine cellar, yoga studio and outdoor patios await. There’s even a ventilated poker room that allows for cigar smoking.Rick Pirog with Slifer Smith and Frampton Real Estate said many people like this type of floor plan. “One of the striking things about the Bearden Lodge is that it’s an 11,000 square foot home but it’s laid out on a very functional way. There are two true master suites, so that enables the owners to actually live on the main level of the home.”Modeled after the grand lodges found at our country’s National Parks, this home features moss-rock fireplaces and 16 timber columns harvested from the 1988 Yellowstone fire.“It would be hard to replicate this home. The builder felt that it would cost over 5 Million dollars to replace this home and it is on the market for $3,295,000. So, it’s under $300 per square foot.”Even though the home sits at an elevation where you can see great views of the Sawatch Range, you’re not too remote. “We’re only about 11 minutes from Riverwalk and 15 minutes from the Arrowhead portal to Beaver Creek Mountain, so there’s a nice balance of being away from all the commotion but you’re able to get to things quickly.”The community of Cordillera has three championship golf courses, two fitness centers, three restaurants, Nordic trails, stables, fishing ponds and a vibrant social scene.
