The rustic Summit Haus retreat perched on Ridge Road has room to entertain the whole family —
and then some.
With seven bedrooms and seven baths, including an attached caretaker or guest suite, it likely took some architectural creativity to incorporate the breathtaking views into every room of the 7,500-square-foot home.
From the living room, master bedroom, three upstairs guest bedrooms and the suite, the owners of this home and their fortunate guests can catch sweeping views of Emerald Mountain, the Flat Tops and the South Valley as well as the not-so-distant slopes of Steamboat Ski Area, just a short walk or two-minute drive away.
“It’s the perfect ski home with lots of space,” says Pam Vanatta, of The Vanatta Group at Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty, the listing broker for the home, newly offered at $3.95 million.
Visitors arrive via a heated driveway to a spacious three-car garage and enter either through a large mudroom or directly into the home’s gourmet kitchen, outfitted with knotty alder cabinets and adjacent to a hearth room with a cherry wood bar and two-sided fireplace.
The main-level master suite features another fireplace, a pair of walk-in closets and an oversized tub with the same flagstone used on the home’s exterior and in the inside entryway.
While breathtaking views are plentiful through the home, some of the best are arguably seen from the hot tub, situated on a spacious deck off the main level.
Vanatta points to the home’s 100-year-old reclaimed barnwood floors, huge log trusses and custom timbers from Oregon as features that showcase the custom design.
“It’s got a really custom feel, with high-end interior design,” Vanatta says. “It was an intricate home to build.”
The current owners use the home as an entertainment hub, with one wet bar upstairs and another in the downstairs recreation area to serve the billiards room, poker area and upscale theater room.
Also downstairs are two more guest rooms — currently outfitted with two queen beds each, to help push the home’s overnight sleeping capacity to more than 20 people across all seven bedrooms.
The lock-off guest suite is the perfect family suite during a multi-generational ski gathering, or it can be used as a separate rental or caretaker space.
