Located on Pikes Peak at an elevation of 7200 feet (2200m) this unique creek side property has a year round mountain stream running through it so it is perfect for kids who like to explore and play in a cool mountain stream or where you can fall asleep to the sounds of the babbling brook a stone’s throw away after relaxing in th 7 person Hot Tub or 4 person Sauna.
You will be minutes from all the major attractions of the Pikes Peak region with numerous trails surrounding you. In fact the trail head for the Ute Pass Regional Trail, which serves as a component of the American Discovery trail, sits right outside our front door and is an easy trail leading to the quaint little mountain Town of Green Mountain Falls, the Falls in Green Mountain Falls, and onto the Pikes Peak National Forest.
In summary the house is two stories high but is built on a small slope by the stream so both the top and main level are directly accessible from the outside on “ground” level. The house has a large deck with outdoor seating and dining areas, a patio with seating and dining areas, 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (one with a 2 person Jacuzzi Tub, one a normal tub, and one a walk in shower with floor to ceiling tile), a 4 person sauna, 3 fire aresa, two 50" HDTV’s with the HD TV channels package including favorites such as ESPN and HBO, and our pine paneled family room with a fireplace and a flat panel 55” HDTV with PlayStation 3. The house is equipped with a fast 20MB high speed wireless internet package.
Three of the bedrooms are equipped with a European style bed which can be made into either two twin size beds or these can be made up together as a king size bed depending on your preference so it is possible to rent it with a king, queen, log bunks, and three more king beds OR six twin size beds whatever combination you prefer.
In more detail on the top level overlooking the stream with a large deck outside is the Jacuzzi Suite Master Bedroom. It is set up as a suite with a king size log bed and French doors between the bedroom and the sitting area with a wood burning stove and 50” HDTV in the sitting area. It is also possible to use a small extra bedroom with a set of log bunk beds in the bedroom next to this suite but please note that the interior passage to this extra bedroom is via the main suite sleeping area so it is better suited for small children. This suite has a bathroom with a 2 person Jacuzzi brand whirlpool bathtub. The second bedroom has the European style bed, and the third has a queen size bed and in the living room there is a queen size Lazy-z-Boy sofa sleeper. There is a full “Gourmet” kitchen complete with a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer, Convection Oven, and dishwasher. The laundry room has a new top of the line LG large capacity, front loading, high efficiency washer and dryer that is perfect for cleaning up after time in the mountains or stream.
On the lower ground level there are two additional bedrooms and a bathroom with floor to ceiling tile and a walk in shower. Both of the two bedrooms are set up with European style beds that can either be made up separately as two twin beds or they can be made up together as a King Size bed so you can either have two additional King Beds or four single beds or any combination thereof. The family room is a beautiful wood paneled room with a fireplace and a 55” flat panel HDTV. It has a PlayStation 3 which has a Blue Ray Player along with a couple games including one of the top rated games of the year “The Last of Us”. The bathroom although not handicap accessible is friendly for those with movement challenges as it has a walk in shower and is easy to move around in.
We have a shared 7 Person Hot Tub and 4 Person Sauna.
Post Fire and Flood Update - Although the June 2012 fire came close you cannot tell it was ever there. A month after the fire in July 2012 there was a huge thunder storm that dumped over an inch of rain in less than an hour over the burn area a mile from our house. This massive amount of water over the burn area was more than the area could absorb after the burn and since our home sits where Sand Creek (a normally dry creek) joins the year round Fountain Creek our home was hit by a wall of water about 2 feet high. We have had many rainstorms that have dropped as much as a couple inches of rain in a day and there has been no flooding at all since July 2012 however if another huge rainstorm comes over the burn area another flood is expected until the burn area vegetation has regrown, a process that takes a number of years.
The Colorado Flash Flood “Season” officially runs from April 1 to September 30th but these floods can happen at any time. We have been advised that the peak months for possible flash floods are July and August. To help protect against this we have put into place a barrier to help divert water around the home which will help reduce a little bit the threat in the future. We have also installed NOAA emergency weather alert radios in each Area to warn you if there is a large rainstorm that could cause a flash flood.
