LOCATION: The drive to this location from Evergreen Lake winds up historic estate-lined Upper Bear Creek Road. After about 5 miles of creek-hugging curves, the road opens up to a valley of soft green meadows and a postcard-perfect view of Mount Evans, which seems so close that you could touch it. The area has historically included a mix of ranches, cabins and modest homes, but newly built, sprawling mansions have made Upper Bear Creek one of the most desirable locations on the Front Range. Access to the 74,000-acre Mount Evans Wilderness is just up the road, a true Rocky Mountain destination for hunters, anglers, hikers and backcountry campers. This property is on the edge of the Jefferson County/Clear Creek County line.
ABOUT THE HOUSE: Completed in 2015 after nine years of construction, this limestone Châteauesque mansion was modeled after the 19th century Biltmore House in Asheville, N.C. Chateau V has all the accoutrements of a real castle: stained and diamond-cut glass at every turn, wrought iron accents, 126 chandeliers, 25-foot ceilings in the great room, four fireplaces (including one enjoyable from an outdoor deck), a wine cellar, a library, bubble balconies, a porte-cochere and an in-law suite. But the most jaw-dropping feature is the view to the west of Mount Evans, visible from every elegant terrace.
