Evans Ridge Estate in Parker, Colorado

Step inside Evans Ridge and be immediately swept away by the beauty of this 42,000-square-foot, 70-acre family compound in Parker, Colorado. Designed by renowned architects and designers, Evans Ridge offers privacy, quiet and solitude, all while being just a 40-minute drive southeast of Denver.

"From the minute the sun rises to long after it sets, there is a pulse at Evans Ridge that is rarely found anywhere else," says Sandy Weigand, broker associate with Kentwood Real Estate in Denver. "A sense of Southern graciousness is prevalent throughout the estate, and sophisticated new furnishings blend with rich antiques and fine artwork to provide harmony at every turn."

When its current residents took ownership of Evans Ridge, they decided to upgrade the estate. Additions were made to the interiors, and the exterior was given a complete makeover with a redesign of the architecture and outdoor living spaces. The landscaping was also renovated to allow for a comfortable haven that adds to the warmth of Evans Ridge - ponds, fountains, trees, birds and a teahouse pavillion can all be found on the grounds.

With 11 bedrooms, 3 private guest suites - each with complete living and cooking quarters - 24 baths and a 16-car garage, Evans Ridge is the perfect estate to entertain and host guests, whether for a family renuion or a corporate retreat. Ten fireplaces, a bowling alley, game room, theater room, indoor pool and spa, his-and-her locker rooms, saunas and steam rooms will keep all guests entertained and relaxed.

From almost every room you can enjoy the breathtaking scenery surrounding Evans Ridge. Nestled into a gently sloped hillside, panoramic views of the Front Range peaks, including Devils Head and Mount Evans, can be enjoyed, whether you want to see the sunrise or sunset.

"Evans Ridge is reasy for a gracious family to begin their true enjoyment and appreciation of the significant estate," Sandy says.
