Located between Laramie, Wyoming and Fort Collins, Colorado, 376 Deer Crossing Road offers a rare and distinct ownership opportunity in the Fish Creek Ranch Preserve, one of Wyoming's beautiful mountain ranches. Developed with the vision to preserve the western lifestyle for future generations, the ranch encompasses 4,242 acres with fourteen 35 acre +/- “Homesteads”. The remaining 3,752 acres have been set aside as a private game preserve for all the owners to enjoy. The timber covered hillsides, lush bottoms and open prairie provide an ideal habitat for a variety of wildlife that call the ranch home including Mule Deer, Antelope, Bear, Grouse, Beaver, Moose and large Elk herds. There are five large ponds on the property that are fed by Fish Creek, providing excellent fishing opportunities for Brookies with the largest stocked with Brown and Rainbow Trout.
The subject property is located on Homestead 15 on the back of the ranch and enjoys the privacy being the last lot on Deer Crossing Road. An initial glance at the home and you will see a beautiful log home with outstanding views stretching into Colorado, but upon further inspection you will find much more. The home is actually a custom built, 2” X 6” construction with insulation and sheet rock and finished with on site milled logs custom matched to ensure a full log appearance without the complications of full log construction. Comprised of 3,696 ft2 this luxurious 3 bed, 4 bath home combines a rustic look with modern features giving it the best of both worlds.
When you enter this impressive home there are a number of things that will catch your eye. Beginning with the well appointed kitchen and its ample storage capacity, providing a wonderful base as the heart of the home. It might be the massive wood burning moss rock fireplace with a gas starter and a Heatilator unit or it could be the unique freestanding spiral staircase leading to the open loft. Each bedroom is complimented by its own bathroom and the master bedroom en suite features a double sink, a Jacuzzi tub and a tiled walk-in shower. Capturing the outstanding views that can be enjoyed from almost anywhere in the home are premium Marvin windows. The home's doors and cabinetry are custom built by local craftsmen with solid wood. Other features that may go unnoticed but will quickly be appreciated are programmable scene lighting for the interior and exterior, tankless hot water heater for an endless supply of hot water and a whole home generator that provides a seamless transition to maintain power during rare power outages. The covered deck allows for a peaceful place for one to relax and unwind from the pace of everyday life.
The Fish Creek Ranch Preserve enjoys year round access and is an easy 2 hour commute from Denver.
