Relax Amid the Mountains and in Complete Luxury

The John Denver Estate in Starwood, a 55 and over community, is a comfortable yet sophisticated home. It blends modern, industrial, and rustic styles to create a one-of-a-kind, resort-like setting.

The home sits on a large, private wooded lot with mountain views from almost every window. There are plenty of outdoor spaces to unwind, and take in the majesty of the surroundings, including an incredible deck.

Here, you have the benefit of living in the wilderness while being just minutes away from town. Four ski mountains are also just minutes away.

All the Room a Country Boy Needs

With five bedrooms, five full-size bathrooms and two half-baths, there’s no shortage of room in this home. The home’s extra-large open floor plan allows for easy entertaining, too. The kitchen, dining room, and sitting areas are wide open, with the cathedral ceilings giving the space an open, airy sensation. There’s even a grand piano on this level, near the home’s entrance.

The chef’s kitchen comes complete with a wood-burning brick-oven, a generously sized island with additional seating, and commercial-grade appliances. Meanwhile, right below the entry-level sitting room is another sitting room, serving up incredible views of the mountains. There’s a fireplace here, which only adds to the special feeling one gets when looking outside at the snow while being cozy and warm inside.
