If you’re looking for all the serenity a private mountain-getaway offers without leaving the city behind, look no further! Escape the hustle-and-bustle in your very own urban retreat. Nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the sought-after Highgate neighborhood, this Sanford Westport home is a unique find. Offering more than 4,500 square feet of exceptional upgrades, this home includes five bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms and a full finished basement.

Situated on either side of the grand two-story foyer sits a versatile formal living room and a functional home office, complete with upgraded lighting, custom built-ins and a comfortable window seat. Further adding to the elegance of the entry is rich, walnut-colored, oak flooring paired with a sweeping stair rail, beautifully designed with custom balusters.

Just beyond awaits your Colorado mountain retreat-inspired entertaining space. A spacious-yet-cozy family room features a brick fireplace adorned with a unique twisted-juniper mantle and knotty alder built-ins, adding a rustic element and charm.

Beyond double sliding doors find a phenomenal outdoor space. Designed for year-round enjoyment, the incredible covered patio is detailed with reclaimed barnwood siding and a magnificent floor-to-ceiling fireplace that steals the show. Backing to vast open space with towering pines and a soothing waterfall, the serenity and privacy this backyard provides is astonishing. Perfect for nature walks, the gated yard presents direct access to the open space and walking trail. On warm summer days, cool off in the low-maintenance swimming pool featuring a Tahoe swim system for active swimming against a current.

Head back inside to the custom-designed gourmet kitchen, offering incredible backyard and open space views. Remodeled from top-to-bottom, this kitchen showcases rustic knotty alder cabinetry, caesarstone countertops, a large entertaining island, high-end Wolf appliances and adjoining dining space. A fully plumbed and ultra-functional butler’s pantry mirrors the kitchen’s tasteful upgrades and is topped off with additional space-saving refrigeration and a wine chiller.

After all long day, retire to the upper level master suite. Beyond double doors, find a wonderful retreat boasting a tranquil sitting area with a large bay window, bringing the Colorado outdoors inside. Beyond the expanded walk-in closet is an extravagant en suite bath. Envelope yourself in sheer luxury with a deep soaking tub and an exquisite travertine tile-surround shower with rainfall shower head. Also on the upper level are three more sizeable bedrooms, one with a private en suite bath and two that share a four-piece Jack-and-Jill bath.

Enjoy a nicely finished basement, comprised of an expansive recreation room with a wet bar, a fully conforming bedroom and a three-quarter bath. Spacious and private, this is a fabulous space for guests!
