6,500 Sqft - 14749 Straight Path Lane- Larkspur- Colorado
This place has it all. Stunning detail is the theme throughout this amazing 6,500 square foot, four-bedroom, seven-bathroom home, rich cherry wood graces the doors, stairways, main-floor walls, cabinetry, and even the master suite’s his and hers closets. Hand-built custom touches abound, including extensive artisan-crafted finishes, even down to the switch plates. The same devotion to precision applies to the 35 acres surrounding the house. A 17,000-gallon koi pond, beautiful gardens, and a 25-acre ski lake are all jewels in the crown of this home. As close to perfect as possible, this property offers every modern convenience in a peaceful Arcadian setting.
A comfortable family area features a stone wood-burning fireplace just off of the eat-in gourmet kitchen. The kitchen showcases matched Italian marble countertops throughout, a professional-grade Viking gas stove top as well as Viking warmer, double electric oven, and convection oven. Appliances include two Asko dishwashers and a twin built-in Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer set. The Butler Pantry is perfectly suited for the staging for any size dinner party.
Highlighted by an exquisite crystal chandelier, the large formal dining room also has an adjacent china closet, impressive high ceilings accent the adjacent living room. The same polish continues to the main floor master bedroom featuring a cozy gas fireplace and a view of the koi pond. Custom touches continue to the master bath with a Roman-style, in-floor whirlpool bath, a dry sauna, a large steamer shower, and huge his & hers walk-in closets with total custom cherry finish woodwork make this one of the most beautiful master suites you will ever experience.
Moving downstairs via one of the two cherry wood staircases, reveals a large walkout basement with a game room, sink, refrigerator, wine cooler, and two storage closets. Two guest bedrooms contain sinks in the rooms with a full bath in between. The bedrooms also have plenty of storage with cedar lined walk-in closets. A third guest bedroom is currently an ideal exercise room with a built-in media center and gas fireplace. Secluded down the hallway is the library with a closet and plenty of shelving and storage.
Fittingly, the 35 acres surrounding the house exude the same level of detail. Resting in a Zen garden-style setting, the magnificent 30′ x 40′ koi pond has four waterfalls to aerate its 17,000 gallons and is artfully engineered to prevent overflow. All of these relaxing sights and sounds can be experienced from the main floor deck. Also visible from the deck is a private 25-acre ski/fishing lake with your own secluded, private cove sporting room enough for a fire pit and horseshoe court, all accessible via a lighted path. Above the cove sits a large trellis with both water and electric. A dock and boatlift complete this area of the property.
In addition to the large gardens, also included on the grounds is a 48′ x 72′ greenhouse with large overhead doors that allow it to be converted to vehicle storage or other uses. Also adding to the versatility are attached pens for small animals, a feed room, and stalls for future horses. Additionally, there is a 36′ x 48′ mechanical barn with concrete floors and aprons, a propane heater, workbenches, loft, overhead doors, and plenty of storage. There is about 10 acres reserved for horses or other large animals.
