Bear Mountain Estate

$13,500,000 Golden, CO 51± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

Situated on the summit of the former East Arapahoe Ski Area, Bear Mountain Estate encompasses varied terrain, over 51± acres, while offering incredibly dramatic elevation change, including steep slopes that are heavily wooded with ponderosa pine and evergreen trees. The heavily wooded areas are interspersed by open grassy meadows, while boasting views of downtown Denver that are next to impossible to replicate. This property presents an incredibly rare opportunity to acquire a piece of land rich with history, a turnkey primary residence and located in an area that, over time, will continue to appreciate in value - simply due to its rarity in the marketplace.

The sprawling, one-of-a-kind, 17,000± square foot residence is ideal for formal corporate entertaining yet comfortable enough for family life, passionately designed with a discerning eye. Influenced largely by 16th-century English architecture, Bear Mountain Estate is a grand nine-bedroom mansion, made for elegant ranch-style living and entertaining. Capable of accommodating a large number of guests while enjoying the main floor space and front and rear covered concrete decks. One of the incredible focal points of the home is a two-story fireplace made from hand-picked Colorado river rock. The trusses, mantle, and wood beams were milled from trees that once stood where the home does now.

The master suite, library, kitchen nook, mudroom, and other living spaces all occupy the main floor. On the lower level is a full gym, sauna, and theater room, as well as two bedrooms and a guest family room. The ample ski storage room is ideal for the location, with over half a dozen ski resorts within a 90-minute drive. Upstairs, there are five bedrooms, a mother-in-law suite, and a meeting room. This property also features an oversized heated swimming pool and large hot tub. From the pool deck, the decks of the home, or any easterly facing patio, holiday fireworks can be seen all over the city below with “world-class” views of downtown Denver and metro area. Additional land may be purchased.
