535 Wildcat Trail

Colorado, La Plata County, Hesperus – MLS 734812

Surely one of the most noteworthy and creative homes in Trappers Crossing, this dramatic one-level home of more than 3,933 SF boasts an array of expansive living and entertaining spaces with a large buffet and island in the kitchen and serene private areas, including a stunning master suite, and 2 guest suites. Artistic use has been made of Colorado flagstone, 5-inch plank hickory floors and Italian tiled and stained concrete countertops, creating lovely depth and texture. All of the major living spaces enjoy access to the covered decking that runs along the back and front of the home accented with reclaimed cedar pillars.

Inside the home, Mexican hand-cut tin sconces create a lacy effect on the walls. Large circular stone walk-in showers, a large stone wall housing a gas starting wood fireplace, fantastic homestead style windows and double doors opening out to the deck all lend to the unique nature of this house. The home has in-floor heating, 8 ft. wide hallways, and 3 ft. wide doors. Custom height toilets and counters merge form with function to enable ease and comfort for your family and guests.

In addition, there is an oversized 2-car garage with a large separate storage room. The lot presents a view of the rolling mountains in the distance. The acreage surrounding the home is a quintessentially peaceful Southwestern landscape of high desert, dotted with native piñon, pine, and juniper.
