This Chalet is the epitome of slope-side luxury living in the Telluride and Mountain Village area. Imagine your ski instructor skiing down to meet you on your deck each morning. Your first run of the day does not start with a lift queue, but with fresh tracks down a long white stretch of freshly groomed corduroy. Imagine not having to walk more than ten paces to get out of your ski boots, and into the hot tub at the end of another epic bluebird ski day...
Sitting directly on the Bridges ski run, this home caters to the most discerning traveler, with its impeccably stylish interior, superior amenities, and direct access to world class skiing. The Chalet was completely remodeled to the studs during 2007 and only the highest level of finishings and furnishings have been used to create one of the most luxurious homes in all of Telluride.
This ski-in/ski-out home features six bedrooms, six bathrooms and two powder rooms, spread over three magnificently spacious levels. The main entrance to the Chalet leads guests into a spectacular great room with huge vaulted log ceilings and dramatic views of the San Sophia Range. The great room shares expansive open-plan living with the dining area and a state-of-the-art kitchen. The gourmet kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances and all the necessary small appliances and utensils. The great room features a stone fireplace, a wet bar and huge windows to look out at some of the most dramatic views on the mountain.
Through sliding glass doors, the vast great room leads out onto a sprawling deck and garden, which features a grill, outdoor seating and a hot tub. This huge deck sits (literally) next to the Bridges ski run where you can enjoy all day sun with dramatic views of the San Sophia Ridge in both winter and summer.
The luxuriously private master suite and sitting areas occupy the whole top floor of the home with well over 2,000 square feet of living space with a king-size bed in the bedroom and a queen sleeper sofa in the private master sitting area. The huge master bath has both a multi-headed shower and jetted tub. Stairs lead from the master suite into a lofty office tower. This office tower has a printer and is completely secluded, in case business calls while you are on vacation.
On the main floor there are three bedrooms (a king suite, a queen suite and a bunk room with four twins) and on the lower level you have two bedrooms (a king suite and a room with three twins.) All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and lots of privacy.
On the lower level there is also a fully equipped, state-of-the-art media and games room. This spacious area features a billiard table, ping-pong table and a full size bar with dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, icemaker, wine cellar and bar seating for six. There is also a flat-screen TV with comfortable leather sofas for watching TV, or a DVD. This is the ultimate entertainment area for kids, without sacrificing the tranquility of the great room upstairs!
Additionally, there is a mudroom with boot dryers that provides easy access to and from the ski run. The private hot tub sits outside and enjoys beautiful views of the ski run and the San Sophia Ridge.
There is also an elevator, which makes this home an excellent choice for elderly or disabled guests.
Whether you are visiting Telluride in winter or summer, this home is positioned so high on the ridge, that the home is drenched in year round sun. Surrounded by woods, directly on the Bridges ski run and perched high up in Mountain Village you will have a complete feeling of privacy in your mountain hideaway, yet you are only a short drive to town. This Chalet reflects the true essence of Colorado mountain style luxury. This is the perfect home for a large family, or for multiple families sharing their vacation together.
