Are you a buyer who seeks the peace and serenity of the mountains? Someone with a penchant for luxury, privacy, and million-dollar views? Well have we got the home for you. This week, we came across a Rocky Mountain listing so hot, you’ll want to jump on the phone right away and schedule a tour!
Enter 19619 Glen Shadows Drive in Colorado Springs, an exquisite custom retreat with every upgrade imaginable, and more importantly, Pikes Peak views that go on for miles!
“This home offers modern flair and styling, beautifully designed with jaw-dropping views of Pikes Peak,” says co-listing agent Wanda Ford of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, recognized as a top broker in all of Douglas County, and unmatched ability to market and sell fine homes across the Front Range and beyond. She co-lists the property with Elaine Stucy.
The five-bedroom, five-full-and-two-half-bathroom estate sits on over five acres with a sprawling 7,483 square feet of effortless indoor/outdoor entertaining. The light and bright interior features soaring 16-foot ceilings, 7-inch whitewashed plank floors, and a floor-to-ceiling double-sided limestone fireplace that brings the wow factor.
You know the kind of home you can’t get out your mind? This is it.
We can’t help but focus your attention on the gourmet kitchen with massive double waterfall marble island, dual 42-inch sinks, two dishwashers, steam convection oven, Miele oven with warming drawer, Wolf gas range, and SubZero fridge – modern appointments that are a cook’s dream and unspoken requirement for luxury living in Colorado.
“This home was built to a higher standard,” adds Ford. “The finishes are unparalleled and the open layout really invites you in for easy living and entertaining.”
A large formal dining with Pikes Peak views is perfect for dinner parties, while the two gracious living areas offer comfortable space for everyone to gather and unwind. Did we mention the covered patio with built-in grill? It’s a showstopper.
Access to a multi-level lawn with green space and aggregate stone walks and scapes are ideal for backyard barbecues and hanging outdoors with family and friends. Take the party downstairs to find a warm and rustic home bar, marked by steel panels and an antique mirror, just steps from a stunning walk-in glass wine cellar.
And no luxury home is complete without a state-of-the-art home theatre – this one comes equipped with a 165-inch screen!
Now you and I both know a home like this cannot bother itself with just one master suite.
Here you get two! Each masterfully designed with sitting areas, spa baths, and oversized closets. The main floor master boasts a stacked-stone fireplace and coveted California closet system!
Additional amenities include geothermal heating and cooling, remote control blinds, whole house humidifier, two solar tubes, triple pane low E windows, smooth texture walls, open glass staircase to basement, 320 AMP service, well and septic, landscape lighting, a four-car garage, and so much more.
Aside from its impeccable craftsmanship and comfortable layout, the location is second to none, tucked in a private secluded community just minutes from area attractions like Garden of the Gods — a registered National Natural Landmark with 300 feet of towering sandstone rock formations against a backdrop of snow-capped Pikes Peak and brilliant blue skies. Of course, you can get those iconic views without ever leaving your house.
Living here also means enjoying nature-filled adventures on a whim. Hiking, biking, and skiing abound! Whether it’s a quick stroll in the Austin Bluffs, hitting the road for a scenic drive to any of Colorado’s world-class ski resorts, or heading into the city for a bite to eat, there’s something for everyone. Perhaps a spa day or golf outing is more your speed? The Broadmoor, a AAA Five-Diamond resort, is but 30 miles away.
Luxury living in Colorado Springs has never looked so good!
