2555 Wildflower Court - MLS #140038 - $4,175,000

After all the press on this property, I just had to check it out for myself.  I was given a wonderful tour by the owners who clearly take a lot of pride in their home!  It is evident that they did not cut any corners in the construction and design of this stunning home! Click here to go to full listing.

Designed by architect Bill Rangitsch with interior designs by Leslie Haradin of Silver Creek Design, this luxury home has spunk, style, and flows with a completely classy top-notch finish.  The endless windows and views are unparalleled this close to town.  Imagine having the city amenities while being surrounded by nature, wildlife, and open space.  Speaking of open space, the property is the first lot in a 100 acre meadow with 55 acres of ‘community space’, including a great big flat yard and 2 fishing ponds of which the owners own the water rights.  It is the only lot with both south valley/Flattop mountain range and ski area views. Talk about a great neighborhood for kids to grow up and adults to live stress free!

The property is situated on Elkin Meadows which means that the owners have private access to hiking trails, sandy beach area and beach house, plus much more!

Some of my favorite items in the home were the unique barn doors from a Wyoming snow fence, the beautiful water feature at the entrance, the small details in each of the bathrooms (one of them has pressed bark as ‘wallpaper’), and a dream kitchen for entertaining!   A great circular dining table is adjacent to a large open deck with lounging couches and a firepit to invite guests for an evening of ambiance and relaxation. Downstairs boasts a walk-out hot tub, outdoor fire pit, wine cellar, a massive storage and work bench area that many can only dream of, an oversized laundry room, and much more!
