Welcome to extraordinary Phoenix Ranch, a property named after the universal symbol of unsurpassed excellence and beauty. This spacious 10,000 sq. ft. home is clad in natural reds and golds found in its heirloom quality hand-carved stone, steel and native stone.

As you enter through the hand wrought iron gates you are introduced to 40 acres of artfully landscaped grounds capturing the best that Colorado living has to offer. This includes an approved equestrian center with irrigation pond and pump station that greens the property and produces tremendous yields for animals all season long. To compliment the agricultural operation is a freestanding stone barn inspired by New England Barn Architecture. The 5000 sq. ft. barn features the finest in materials including radiant floor heating and oversized drive-through custom doors. The tennis and basketball courts provide resort-grade recreation along with a refreshing custom commercial grade pool and water feature; all secluded in the privacy of hundreds of trees. Views are truly panoramic, with each room designed to present a breathtaking scene ranging from the rolling plains to the towering Rocky Mountains, including a framed view of the famous “14,000 Footer,” Longs Peak.

Like the mythical phoenix, the entire estate appears to have risen from the ground it hovers on, featuring abundant hand-cut Colorado “Buffstone” indigenous to the Rocky Mountains. Rugged steel frames the commercial grade structure that was built by award winning developer CrossWinds Estates, LLC. Oversized entry doors are hand crafted with patinaed copper, framed by Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired design elements. You are struck immediately upon entering the vaulted foyer by the exposed steel and Parallam beams throughout. Custom hand forged fixtures by Hubbardton Forge cast a warm glow on the Venetian plaster walls. The eye-catching square spiral staircase, built of stone, steel and recycled timber, floats without supports between three levels with zero deflection; an engineering feat not seen in residential environments. Warmth and color are provided through furniture-grade trim made of select alder wood and cabinet grade finishes.

Radiant floor heating throughout promises warmth and comfort for those who are only at home in bare feet. Sophisticated year-round climate control is provided with commercial grade heating and cooling, all controllable from a PC or the internet. During cool summer nights the architecture takes advantage of the magnificent Colorado climate, allowing entire wall systems to open to oversized stone patios to foster a seamless connection with the majestic Rocky Mountains. On the main patio you find a 25’ x 50’ dive pool with water feature and resort-grade 12-person built in hot tub, outdoor kitchen area complete with built in appliances and cabana setting with outdoor television and AV. This is another example of a home that emphasizes the natural luxury of the region, providing wonderful opportunities for evening entertainment and refreshing summer breezes.

Phoenix Ranch has two master suites, one on the main level and another “mini” master on the upper level. The luxurious master bath includes oversized steam showers and body sprays reminiscent of a fine spa, complimented by a heated whirlpool tub and fireplace, copper sinks, custom tile throughout, and 8″ Caesar Stone counter tops. Upstairs, the “mini” master suite also has bird’s eye views of the Rocky Mountains, fireplace and easy accessibility to the guest and children’s bedrooms. Each bedroom offers privacy and modern comfort for family and guests alike. On the main level, custom-built barn door tracks open silently into the hand-hewn walnut study.

You will be enchanted by the chef’s kitchen with countless commercial features integrated into its warm atmosphere, including abundant counters, recessed steamer, Wolf ovens, dual 36″ Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, one-touch espresso machine, walk-in pantry, butler’s pantry and spacious bar and table seating with sweeping Rocky Mountain views. A separate dining area offers a more elegant environment for special occasions and larger gatherings. The great room opens to the kitchen, featuring a 2-story stone and steel fireplace, giant flat screen entertainment center with home theater sound, and unobstructed views of the Rockies.

The downstairs in-law suite offers an unsurpassed experience for guests, complete with all the comforts of home for independent living. A temperature-controlled wine room is crafted of Brazilian Mahogany and patina tile. The exercise room sports rubber flooring and commercial grade equipment looking out on the famous Flatirons. A martini bar blends personality with functionality; bold red countertops, barn door cabinets, and fully equipped bar with appliances make parties effortless. Each room in Phoenix Ranch offers a fully functioning entertainment center for sound, security and wireless internet. The dedicated home theater is an oasis for audio/visual fans. You will be guaranteed a truly regal entertainment experience with plush leather seating for eight and superb sound insulation. From conception to completion, Phoenix Ranch offers the utmost in quality living inside and out.

Looking to the future, the property offers many opportunities while maintaining an agricultural designation. This could include Polo fields, horse paddocks, or crops supported by extensive irrigation and water rights. Phoenix Ranch has no conservation easements attached – a rarity in Boulder County – which allows you to enjoy your land without pre-defined limits. In addition, a stable up to 5000 sq ft has been approved by Boulder County. Possibilities are endless. Phoenix Ranch masterfully combines grace and stout magnificence in a modern estate that makes dreams a reality.
