A private sanctuary awaits you at the end of the road. Close to Boulder and the Front Range, this finely crafted luxurious log home in the foothills above Lyons is a comfortable and elegant escape from busy city life. Ideally suited for the owner who appreciates privacy and tranquility, whether as a full-time residence or as a part-time retreat.
The property sits at 6,100 feet above sea level on a stunning 78 acres offering diverse topography: sloping meadows, thousands of vibrant evergreens, rock outcroppings, springs, a pond and 4 separate 1-room cabins (evoking use for a variety of creative endeavors). The land is surrounded by 1,500 acres, privately owned with conservation easements. The home and land integrate beautifully, with an interplay of multiple inside/outside views. Log construction doesn’t get any better than this well-maintained home. Every living space lends itself to the peaceful retreat aspect of this property.
A spacious and comfortable layout, the kitchen has been remodeled with high-end stainless appliances, granite counters, and custom reclaimed old-growth-pine cabinets. The dining area and great room offer soaring windows and ceilings, flowing out to a wrap-around porch and offering the perfect spot for wildlife/bird viewing.
The master suite is up a half-level, with a luxurious, remodeled bathroom and a smart, inviting walk-in closet. The other 2 bedrooms have en suite baths, perfect for family privacy and guest use: one is upstairs with western views of the land, the other is on the lower level with south facing views and access onto a separate patio. The lower level has a rec. room with pool table and wine cellar. Three fireplaces provide mountain comfort. This is a rare opportunity for the discerning owner. Spring Gulch has a road association that does top-notch maintenance and winter plowing, making travel/access easy for residents. Readily accessible to/from Boulder, Denver, DIA.
The home has modern mechanical systems with a high-end furnace, air conditioning, high-producing well, septic system, propane tank, and a modest irrigation system for colorful landscaping. Oversized garage. The land may be divided into two parcels allowing an additional building site (refer to Boulder County Planning Department). See the drone video, then come experience this unique, heirloom property in person! One must spend time in this home and walk the land to appreciate its solitude and park-like nature. When you arrive at 5005 Colard Lane you’ll exhale---and know that you’ve found a rare and magical place to call home.
