Gray Stone Canyon is a private oasis tucked away at the top of Storm Mountain Ranch, Steamboat’s most exclusive gated community. With Walton Creek Canyon and National Forest stretching out behind the home, this luxury estate perfectly blends stunning architecture, natural elements and the surrounding landscape into a harmonious retreat. Exclusively offered by Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty Broker/Owner Pam Vanatta for $13,750,000.
This amazing property features a spectacular 8000+ square foot luxury residence and a 2000+ square foot guest house. The residences sit on opposite sides of cascading ponds, enhanced by fountains and surrounded by immaculate landscaping. The sounds of Walton Creek flowing next to the property create a tranquil atmosphere that is a delight to the senses. The home has been meticulously maintained inside and out, and its exceptional quality comes through with every detail. The home itself is rivaled only by the setting and access to an ideal Rocky Mountain lifestyle. With over 10 miles of hiking and cross country skiing trails directly out the back door, recreation is literally steps away.
To step into the main home is to cross over into a peaceful sanctuary. A well-designed floor plan creates a home to live easily, as well as to entertain either intimate or large gatherings. American Spa Clay covers the walls of the main living spaces for a healthy calming effect while Venetian plaster adorns the remaining walls.
Grand windows and retractable sliding doors create a seamless transition from the interior of the home to the abundant outdoor living spaces. The main great room is truly grand but still offers cozy spaces for quiet conversation. The kitchen is a striking mix of high-end contemporary cabinetry, top of the line stainless steel appliances and accents alongside thick slab granite counters offering clean lines, ample workspace and excellent storage.
The decadent master suite is on the main level accessible to a covered patio with outdoor shower and stunning views up Walton Creek Canyon. A steel accented rock fireplace soars to the vaulted ceiling while Italian marble graces the master bath. Dual walk-in closets offer plenty of storage and a dressing area hosts a 3-way mirror.
Head downstairs where entertaining is easy with a lovely full bar, theater room, seating area and an entire wall of sliding glass doors that disappears completely when opened to extend the living space, spilling out onto the covered patio. An additional bedroom suite is also located on the lower level. The space is inspired and peaceful, offering privacy and direct access to the nature surrounding the home.
Fully-automated with easy one-touch access to control the home from any room, plus a large screened in porch and air conditioning for the summer, and a snow melt system for easy winter care. Additional structures include an attached 3 car garage, 2-bedroom guest house with attached 2 car garage, single detached garage, and a full-sized RV garage. The home has been meticulously maintained inside and out and its exceptional quality comes through with every detail.
Storm Mountain Ranch is a shared ranch community of discerning owners who strive to elevate life’s experiences to their fullest potential. Fourteen homesites share 1100 acres with a variety of terrain from lush hay meadows with meandering fishing streams and ponds to forested lands that travel up Walton Creek Canyon offering miles of trails to enjoy endless summer and winter activities. Fly fishing, horseback riding, hiking and snow shoeing are popular favorites but enjoying nature is as simple as a rocking chair on the front porch. Ranch amenities include a centrally located common clubhouse and guest cabins, along with the Hideout Cabin at the top of the property up the canyon, all of which support a mountain ranch atmosphere offering welcoming gathering places for community families and guests.
