Hood Park Haven is – by all accounts – one of the finest ski resort properties in North America. On the basis of geography alone, this glassy residence enjoys a direct trailside location on Galloping Goose ski run, right by acres of “compelling vistas” across open meadows, forests, and mountains (read: views for days). The south-facing aspect also ensures it’s sun-drenched year-round.
“Of the home’s many compelling characteristics: its 5,337-square-foot heated terraces and patio are particularly special,” explains Damon Demas, listed agent and realtor at Telluride Properties.
“The south-facing patio, sitting adjacent to acres of open space, makes one feel like there is no one around you for miles, and allows for all-day sun, a rarity in the upper Mountain Village.”
“The views from the bedroom terraces to the south include the ski area, Gold Hill, and Palmyra Peak; while the suites looking north capture views of the La Salle Range and the entire San Sophia Ridgeline with its frequent alpenglow displays. The western view from the primary bedroom terrace is the iconic Wilson Peak.”
“It is this astounding assemblage of views from every terrace and patio of the home that must be absorbed fully to recognise the rarity of the home’s special setting.”
For the starfuckers out there, you’ll be pleased to learn it’s situated relatively close to Tom Cruise’s former estate (which he recently sold for roughly the same price as Hood Park Haven’s current asking). But as Demas will also tell you, beyond where the palatial retreat is situated and elite ski-in/ski-out access on offer, Hood Park Haven is an architectural delight exemplified by requisite interior design and exceedingly tasteful furnishing. Think upscale Colorado chic.
Totalling a generous 18,399 square feet across three levels, here you’ll find eight well-considered bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, an expansive great room + two family rooms, formal dining area + wet bar which opens onto the aforementioned 5,337-square feet heated terrace, prep kitchen/butler’s pantry, pilot’s/caretaker’s apartment, office, 10 fireplaces, and – as previously referenced – “extraordinary outdoor living spaces.”
