“Magnificent” well describes both the setting and the remarkable home of Sky River Ranch, on the Elk River north of Steamboat Springs. The trout-filled Elk River runs through this this 797-acre property, home to large numbers of 14- to 18-inch brown and rainbow trout that entice even the most discriminating fly angler. The Elk River is a beauty, with ideal riffles and bend pools, large enough to hold some lunker trout, but small enough to be easily waded. When your arm is sore from playing strong trout, take a break from the back of a horse and enjoy the grasslands and views on the remainder of this verdant ranch that is forever protected by a conservation easement with Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust. Situated on a bluff directly overlooking the river is a 5-bedroom contemporary home, built with an eye towards complementing the natural beauty of the area. A signature feature of this 8700-square foot home is floor-to-ceiling windows in nearly every room, which capture the setting like few other homes do. Open beam ceiling and marble counters accent the expert craftsmanship throughout. A home theatre, wine cellar, and 6-car garage are but a few of the many amenities to be enjoyed. Finally, the ranch is but 20-minutes from downtown Steamboat Springs, a small city with giant attractions, not the least of which is the Steamboat Ski Area. In short, Sky River Ranch epitomizes how a magnificent home can perfectly enhance an even more magnificent slice of Colorado high country.
