Lyons, CO, USA
56 Apple Ridge Road
This is a remarkable property. It is a close-in 35 acre mountain home site that has great views and a meticulously maintained, upgraded log home located near the edge of Lyons. Only seven minutes from the heart of Lyons, and 30 minutes from Boulder and Longmont. Indeed, the home sits on a beautiful expanse of land. The bulk of the land features acres of grassy meadows with impressive views framed by ponderosa pines and granite rock outcroppings. Hawks and eagles soar overhead. The home site is well back from the road and no neighbors are visible from the house. Elk, deer, and wild turkey make regular visits to drink from a small stream and gold-fish pond. A long deck runs the length of the home from a covered sitting area to a hot tub near the master bedroom. Visualize gazing from the hot tub at the night time stars and the moon over the high stone cliffs which border Apple Valley. An oversized two-car detached garage with a total of 2200 square feet has its own hot water baseboard heat, an attached workshop and a large studio space above. High speed internet is provided via a buried cable from Lyons Communications, who provides various packages for high speed internet, phone, and television. A wide wooden spiral stair leads to the front entry and east facing balcony deck. The front entry leads to a vaulted living area with an open floor plan. The living room has floor to ceiling windows, high, tongue-in-groove spruce ceilings, a large iron western style chandelier, and a classic two-story moss rock fireplace with a six foot wide stone hearth. The gourmet kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite counters and a large 4X8 foot granite island. A butler's pantry next to the kitchen provides plenty of storage, a second oven, and a fun Dutch-door which opens to the back deck and pond area. The main floor master has a vaulted ceiling, a five-piece en-suite bath, and a sitting area with a bay window and window seat perfect for enjoying the views. A large 23X17 foot loft makes a practical flex-space (studio, library or study area?) built above the kitchen and dining rooms. The finished walk-out lower level has both a family room and a media/rec room as well as a bedroom, an office, another andfrac34; bath, a large laundry area, a mud room, and a multi-purpose storage area perfect for entry into the home from the garage and outdoor activities.
