November Featured Home: Soda Creek Mountain Retreat in Evergreen, Colo.

By Nicole Lauber

There are many mountain getaways, but there are few mountain retreats. Welcome to the Soda Creek Mountain Retreat, a meticulously maintained, Southwestern-styled estate on eight gated and manicured acres in beautiful Evergreen, Colorado.

 “This property is unique because it has all the features a custom homebuyer wants, but rarely finds collectively all in the same property,” says Kerry Endsley, owner of KCH Properties and Realtor with Fuller Sotheby’s International Realty. “The Soda Creek Mountain Retreat has privacy, location, indoor and outdoor recreation and equestrian facilities, and is the perfect blend of an entertainment and family home.”

 Located just 30 minutes from Denver and less than one hour from Denver International Airport, this 10,712-finished-square-foot estate is in the perfect location to enjoy gated privacy, while also having the amenities of a big city at your fingertips. Denver boasts high paying jobs in interesting and progressive new fields, endless recreation opportunities, major sports teams, a dynamic young population and beautiful weather year-round. The Soda Creek Mountain Retreat is also less than one hour away from several world-class ski resorts and every imaginable Colorado recreational opportunity.

 Entertainers will delight in the amenities this retreat offers: a 2-story great room with a massive wood-burning fireplace overlooking the indoor pool solarium, a cave grotto hot tub with television and audio, a 600-square-foot fully furnished teepee with a fire pit, a game room, a full bar, a 1,200-bottle wine cellar, a home theater with a 126-inch screen, a whole-house integrated audio-video system, a fully equipped exercise studio and expansive decks and patios that are perfect backdrops for parties and soirees.

Homebuyers looking for their perfect vacation retreat should act fast. “The luxury market in and around Evergreen is recovering nicely now, but still has a choice of unique luxury properties, making it the perfect time to buy,” Kerry says. “The Soda Creek Mountain Retreat is the perfect first or second home, family and entertainment home, and the single best home value in the prestigious Soda Creek Community and north Evergreen.”

Dubuque, Iowa

Built on 180+/- of land off of the Mississippi River and within the city that Forbes.com listed as the Best City to Raise a Family, this Dubuque, Iowa log estate has been designed as though it was built by the forest surrounding its crops and open fields. Much of this primitive mansion has been hand-crafted and designed by artists; from the custom light-fixtures to the waterfall in the master bathroom designed to recreate a waterfall from a creek off of one of the many hiking trails on the land. It hosts six large bedrooms along with six bathrooms/ four half baths and six fireplaces scattered around this indoor forest. Natural materials were used as much as possible in the architecture of this home to create the most natural feel possible. Built into the log styled walls and floors you will find Oklahoma stone, this feature is used throughout the entire home and is most impressive on the hand carved fire surround in the large living room. While the home may appear to be old country at a glance, you will find nothing short of top-line quality. The gourmet kitchen is decorated with Durasupreme cabinetry and granite counter tops along with enough appliances to run a restaurant. Sub Zero refrigerators and dual refrigerator drawers, two dishwashers, a six burner Wolf stove, and double oven with griddle are just a few of the things that work together to create what is easily a chef’s dream. Even your office/ library has been touched by Mother Nature herself with hand-carved doors and cherry covered ceilings. On this same floor level you will also find a laundry room with dual washer and dryers, a double sink, and a dog wash station. The floor below continues to impress with a personal exercise room, theater, and hand crafted bar with its own appliances. Outside the home you will find a personal pond along with the river just outside your door. The list of eye-popping amenities in and out of this woodsman’s castle goes on and on seemingly endlessly. The property will be auctioned with J.P. King Auction. For more information contact J. Craig King at (800)-558-5464 or visit http://www.dupontregistry.com/homes/Search/Details.aspx?itemid=1879812.
