Few people glimpse 10,700-square-foot home in Emerald Meadows West that sold for $3.7M
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — One of the larger homes on the market in the Steamboat Springs area sold this week for $3,783,920 to a business entity registered as C and D Rental at the Boat LLC.
The home, secluded on the south side of a native pine forest in Emerald Meadows West Subdivision about 5.5 miles south of Steamboat Springs, comprises 10,713 square feet, with more than 6,000 feet of that on the main living level.
When the Emerald Meadows West deal is combined with the sales this week of a $2.4 million condominium at One Steamboat Place, a $2 million commercial unit in One Steamboat Place in downtown Steamboat and a $1.2 million Eagle Ridge Atriums condo, the last full week in April 2018 provided a $9.4 million boost to the local real estate market.
A search of the buyer for the Emerald Meadows property on the Colorado Secretary of State’s website did not turn up any information for the buyer. But it would be a good match if the new owners were enthusiastic about preserving the native flora on the 110-acre property. It has earned Colorado Stewardship Forest and Meadow designations.
There is a native evergreen forest on the north side of the ridge the house is perched atop, and a carefully pruned gambel oak forest on the south side, where there are views to Rabbit Ears Pass and Mount Baldy in the distance. Cow elk will be calving on the south side of the property in May.
The seven-bedroom (three of them on the main level), seven-bathroom home was designed by local architect Bill Rangitsch and building contractor Ken Solomon. Nick Metzler of the Metzler Team at Colorado Group Realty was the listing broker, and Doug Labor of Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty brought the buyer. The previous owners were the Munn family.
The home was designed by Rangitsch to hug the ridge. Motorists on Routt County Road 35 in the South Valley may not even notice the structure unless they know where to look. In spite of the its low profile on the land, the signature design element of the home is the floor to ceiling windows throughout that open up the views.
And there’s also a traditional great room with a vaulted ceiling with an unusual twist; the wood-burning fireplace insert is flanked by the glass wall of the temperature controlled wine cellar.
