Located on Ski Trail Lane, where you can walk out your door and across the street to click on your skis or snowboard and hit the slopes of the Steamboat Ski Area, this home has been extensively updated and improved over the years. The sellers have kept the charm and coziness that they have always loved about their mountain chalet, while incorporating style and design elements that give it a modern and contemporary feel.
The current owners have built many memories in the home since they purchased it in 1994. When asked to reflect on their years here, and what it might mean to the next family who makes memories in the home, they shared, “When we bought our home in Steamboat, our four children were quite young and being homeschooled. Our careers allowed for much flexibility in where we spent our time, so we spent a lot of it in Steamboat. This property became a cozy vacation home for us and our kids. Steamboat is such a family-friendly town, and we have so many great memories of the Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo, 4th of July parade, and of course excellent skiing. We love Steamboat both winter and summer with all the great outdoor experiences. In summer, we love to mountain bike, hike and fly fish. Of course, in the winter we love to ski, and the location of our home made it so easy and convenient for us, as a large family, to enjoy a day on the mountain. Our children started skiing at young ages and with a Steamboat home that was practically ski-in, ski-out, they spent enough time on the slopes that they have become quite good skiers.”
So, the question becomes, why sell now? “Our four children are now grown and married, with children of their own. The ability to make time around everyone’s busy schedules has made it difficult to spend as much time in Steamboat as we used to, and as we would like. We think it is time to write the next chapter in our lives. It is with mixed emotion that we are now selling the home that we have affectionately come to know as the ‘Chalet.’ But we are confident it will bring years of great memories to another family in the future, just like it has to our family for 23 years.”
The “Ski Trail Chalet” offers panoramic views from the sunny south-facing deck, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and 2443 square feet. Offered fully furnished with modern mountain décor, the home is a beautiful retreat to enjoy the wonders of the mountains. There is plenty of room for all, with a spacious garden level family room with wet bar, stone fireplace and hot tub just outside the door. The comfortable main level offers a bright, country kitchen and cozy living area. The upper level is devoted entirely to the luxurious master suite with walls of windows and a seating area to take in the bre athtaking views of the South Valley and Flat Tops Wilderness on the horizon. From this home, you can watch the Gondola go by while you have breakfast, ski home for lunch, and enjoy cozy fireside evenings with family and friends.
