Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club is an idyllic union of luxury and mountain living.
Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club, a 1,216-acre residential community nestled in the Yampa Valley of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, offers unbeatable amenities, including concierge services and on-site equestrian facilities, as well as private access to gold-medal fishing on the Yampa River and five miles of trails, a backcountry retreat, and membership opportunities at the slope-side Alpine Mountain Summit Club. With just 63 homesites, each situated on its own private five-acre lot, the ranch also serves as a serene getaway for relaxation and rejuvenation — yet it’s also just five minutes from downtown Steamboat and the slopes.
The latest home at Alpine Mountain Ranch & Club, now for sale through Paoli Group of Colorado Group Realty, is a 5,700-square-foot property that boasts five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and a three-car garage. But it’s the design of the home that most impresses, thanks to local architect Rick Hodges and interior designer Leslie Dapper of Rumor Designs.
Deemed Moonlight Run, the new open-floor plan home adds a fresh splash of modern mountain architecture to the ranch, blending clean lines, contemporary finishes, and elements of steel and glass with traditional wood and natural stone. Serving as a focal point of the space, the central fireplace is wrapped in dark steel and fit with a glass firebox so the crackling flames can be enjoyed from both the great room and the adjacent kitchen, where slab-front cabinetry with a high-gloss finish is complemented by one of the many custom light fixtures, each designed specifically to suit the space.
Better still, Moonlight Run takes full advantage of its natural surroundings. Another main focus of the design was bringing the outdoors inside, which is accomplished with floor-to-ceiling windows that allow natural light to illuminate the space and the scenery to serve as the wall art. In the great room, the seamless panes swing open, leading out to a spacious covered deck and letting in the fresh mountain air.
