Your private mountain oasis awaits you at 54 Penny Lane in Cordillera (video)

Nestled within the tall pines and aspens of The Summit at Cordillera, you’ll find a magical Rocky Mountain oasis at 54 Penny Lane. When you come upon the property you’ll not only notice the privacy you have, but also the amount of manicured forest that surrounds the home which is nestled between two water features, one of which is a natural spring that runs year round.

The exterior of this five bedroom home showcases the outdoors with multiple patios and stone features. This home was built for the builder himself, so not one detail has been overlooked.

“I think that Mark Himebach, the builder of this home, really appreciated fine finishings in wood and a lot of stone. It’s not very common where you see so many floor to ceiling stone finishes in one home and it starts right when you come in the main entrance and it just continues throughout the entire property,” said George Emmett, a sales associate for Slifer Smith and Frampton Real Estate.

As you enter, you are welcomed by a large stone fireplace in the great room which flows into the kitchen that was made for entertaining and was recently written up in a local magazine. Adjacent to the kitchen is a hearth room with some history.

“The hearth room is probably my favorite room in the house. It is made from reclaimed wood from the first Governor of Colorado John Long Routt’s property,” Emmett said. A formal dining area, study and main level master completes the first floor of the home.

The lower level feels grand with 12-foot ceilings. More bedrooms, a family room, game room, wine cellar and media room will provide plenty or space to spread out for all of your family and friends.

In addition to the world class skiing at Vail and Beaver Creek, you can join Cordillera where they have plenty of amenities available such as three championship golf courses and a par-three course, athletic clubs, swimming pools, tennis courts and restaurants.

Come and experience the privacy of 54 Penny Lane on Saturday, August 11 from 1 to 4 p.m. during the open house. Contact George Emmett for more information at 970.331.3168 or visit
