Step into the sheer brilliance that is 2970 Cedar Heights Drive, Colorado Springs. This 10,001 (8,750 finished) square foot custom ranch home was built by luxury home builder Gary Gregoire of Gregoire Homes, Inc. The home is situated on its sprawling two acres in such a way that it provides unsurpassed views of the mountains or city (or both!) from every room. Located in Manitou School District 14, the five bedroom, eight bathroom, four-car garage home presents main-level living at its finest. The home is priced at 1,725,000.
Visitors are welcomed into this stunning home by way of the beautiful circular driveway sculpted by impeccable landscaping. The easy-maintenance stucco exterior and tile roof are pulled together by stately pillars and hand-milled doors. It’s clear – even from the outside – that no expense has been spared in the construction of this masterful home.
As you enter the custom arched doorway flanked by exquisitely designed sidelights, you reach a breathtaking foyer with barreled ceilings. You are immediately taken by the handsome wood accents, hand troweled walls and artistic touches throughout To the left of the foyer is an inviting sitting room and to the right is an elegant formal dining room.
Directly ahead of the entry is a majestic great room with built-ins, a gas log fireplace, beamed ceiling and wall of Pella windows framing commanding mountain views. Conveniently off the great room is a powder room to one end and an elevator that accesses the walkout lower level to the other.
A short hall leads to a cozy hearth room with gas fireplace and entertainment center, which opens to the awe-inspiring kitchen fit for a demanding chef. This space features a large butcher block island with warming drawer, wraparound bar with slab granite countertops, Subzero and Dacor appliances and a custom-built exhaust over the cooktop. Adjoining the kitchen is a large eating nook with captivating mountain views.
Just off the kitchen is a spacious office with built-in desk and cabinetry featuring a bird’s eye view of the Peak and Front Range. Adjoining the other end of the kitchen is a hand-crafted walk-in pantry, closet, powder room and one of the two laundry rooms with built-ins. The kitchen walks through a convenient butler pantry with built-in glassware, china storage and wine fridge to the formal dining room. The large, oversized garage is fully finished and almost 50 feet wide with built-in cabinets, sink and work area – nice!
At the east end of the home are two main-level master suites. The first has direct access to a picturesque rear patio and is completed by a lavish five-piece master bath with steam shower and jetted tub. Across from the first master bedroom is a handsome alder paneled office with built-in bookshelves and filing system adjoining a large media room or den. Through the office is the second master bedroom with patio access, sprawling city views, another lavish bath and walk-in closet.
Down the curved stairway is the lower level – flooded with natural light. A gorgeous family room is embellished by a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and a wall of windows that lead out to the lower deck. A large u-shaped bar is decked with a refrigerator, sink, microwave and incredible wine cellar. A multi-person sauna awaits you for a relaxing time to unwind. Continuing down the hall you pass the large storage/utility room, which would make a super exercise or hobby room.
At the west end of the hall is a guest suite with its own full bath and walk-in closet, lower deck access and even an attached sitting room. To the other end of the lower level you pass a perfectly-sized rec or billiard room with fireplace with deck access, followed by a welcoming library area with gas log fireplace, built-ins and two additional guest suites. Every bedroom in this home is a suite with deck access. The 117 foot deck extends the entire length of the home on the main and lower levels.
This supreme residence is located in Cedar Heights gated community, providing utmost privacy and security. The home itself is bordered by protected open spaces, so the unspoiled views will remain pristine. The home is meticulously maintained and a must-see to fully comprehend it’s majesty. Enjoy the architectural allure and postcard worthy vistas at 2970 Cedar Heights Drive.
