Alpen Ridge is the epitome of slope-side luxury living in the Telluride and Mountain Village area. Imagine a ski instructor skiing down to meet guests on their deck each morning. The 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. Alpen Ridge 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 Alpen Ridge leads guests into a spectacular great room with huge vaulted log ceilings and dramatic views of the San Sophia Range. The great room shares an 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 beautiful fireplace, a wet bar, and huge windows to look out at some of the most dramatic views on the mountain. It also has a flat-screen TV with a Blu-ray player and Apple TV.
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 guests can enjoy all-day sun with dramatic views of the San Sophia Ridge in both winter and summer.
The 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 with a flat-screen TV and a private office area. The huge master bath has both a multi-head shower and a jetted tub. There is also a private deck. Stairs lead from the master suite into a lofty Yoga tower. This Yoga room with a view has mats, props, exercise balls, and a bench and is completely secluded.
On the main floor, there are three bedrooms, both the king and queen suites have flat-screen TVs with DVD players and en suite bathrooms with separate jetted tubs, dual sinks and glass showers and the king suite has a private balcony. The bunk room has four twins – a traditional twin bunk bed and a twin with trundle – and an en suite bathroom with jetted tub, dual sinks, and a glass shower.
On the lower level, guests have two bedrooms, a king suite with a flat-screen TV, private patio and en suite bathroom with glass shower and a room with three twins with a flat-screen TV and en suite bathroom with glass shower. All bedrooms have lots of privacy. On the lower level, there is also a fully equipped, state-of-the-art media and game room. This spacious area features a billiards table, dart board and a full-size bar with dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, ice maker, 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!
On this level, there is also access to the two-car garage where the ping pong table is located, laundry area, and powder room. 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 guests with disabilities.
Whether guests are visiting Telluride in winter or summer, this home is positioned so high on the ridge that it is drenched in year-round sun. Surrounded by woods, directly on the Bridges ski run and perched high up in Mountain Village, guests will have a complete feeling of privacy in their mountain hideaway and are only a short drive to town.
Alpen Ridge 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. In addition, Alpen Ridge can be set up for a luxurious and beautiful Telluride wedding.
