There is no place like Colorado and no better living in Colorado than in. a peaceful, private setting capturing the Rocky Mountain Majesty. At the very end of a well maintained road, nestled at the base of towering peaks, Lions Head Vista offers the ultimate combination of natural beauty, seclusion, and access to world-class amenities. This remarkable 4+ acre estate is highlighted by huge rock outcroppings, the sounds of rushing waters from nearby Elk Creek, aspen groves, and forested hillsides, all set against a backdrop of Lions Head, Chimney Rock, the Kenosha Ranch and multiple horizons of Rocky Mountains. Lions Head dominates the view from the show-stopper deck, while those more adventurous might hike directly to the world class Elk Falls. It is an incredible setting at the doorstep to a multitude of activities - fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, stargazing, entertaining, or just relaxing under the blue skies of Colorado .
Lions Head Vista is a gated estate at the end of Upper Aspen Lane in Elk Falls, Pine. Upper Aspen ends at the front gate, and surrounding the property on two sides is Colorado’s newest State Park-Staunton . This massive 3,828-acre park has over 30 miles of foot and horseback trails accessible right from the property. This not only creates a gateway to an enormous playground, but a desirable end-of-the-road setting removed from the rest of Elk Falls and other private landowners. Protected by massive rock outcroppings framing the views, this estate quality property feels much larger than its acreage.
Behind the remote controlled gate the home is a Colorado cabin that has undergone a massive transformation into a remarkable sprawling collection of features and comforts.
The owner had three uncompromised visions during the evolution of this estate: create a welcoming environment that includes nature and the great outdoors in everyday conversation, provide comfort and convenience at every turn, and build a home with thoughtful sustainability. Each of the three goals are achieved at the highest levels. The 10 auto bays in two garages are designed and built to cradle your automobile collection in beautiful heated environments. The residence boasts a 700+ bottle wine cellar, quality upgrades throughout including the updated kitchen with new KitchenAid appliances, granite slab counters and views out to the mountains.
The highlight of the home is the more than 1,400 square feet of covered redwood deck. Built to accommodate weddings, ambitious entertaining and romantic interludes the incredible deck is graced with two fire pits, one in the granite dining table and another surrounded by comfortable seating, an inset 2021 Wind River Spa hot tub with unobstructed views of towering peaks and countless shooting stars. Next level comfort and usability come from the motorized shades providing shelter in all conditions without obscuring the mountains. Even the driveway is heated to make sure the Colorado powder is a joy and not a challenge.
Snowmelt from the 14,264 foot Mount Evans peak and ridges above the property fill Elk Creek year ‘round and provide timeless adventure as it tumbles over the namesake for the area- Elk Falls. Teach your friends and family to catch trout in the nearby and often-stocked trout ponds in Staunton State Park or explore the wilderness on the shoulders of giant peaks. Herds of elk frequent the area and Colorado wildlife is plentiful here for those with a keen eye and spirit of adventure.
A property of this calibre comes available perhaps once in a lifetime. Given the remarkable scenery and secluded setting, it is amazing that the ranch is only minutes from US HWY 285 Colorado’s Adventure Highway and Conifer, Colorado with all of the amenities of the city. Everything you may need or want, from Denver International Airport to restaurants, shops and services of Denver are all within a short drive of the property.
