Located between Laramie, Wyoming and Fort Collins, Colorado, 7 Bear Mountain Trail offers a rare and distinct ownership opportunity in the Fish Creek Ranch Preserve, one of Wyoming’s beautiful mountain ranches. Developed with the vision to preserve the western lifestyle for future generations, the ranch encompasses 4,242 acres with fourteen 35 acre +/- “Homesteads”. The remaining 3,752 acres have been set aside as a private game preserve for all the owners to enjoy. The timber covered hillsides, lush bottoms and open prairie provide an ideal habitat for a variety of wildlife that call the ranch home including Mule Deer, Antelope, Bear, Grouse, Beaver, Moose and large Elk herds. There are five stocked ponds on the property that are fed by Fish Creek, providing excellent fishing opportunities for Brook and Rainbow Trout.
The subject property is a stunning mountain top home nestled atop a timbered knob giving it privacy and sweeping views from every room in the home. Comprised of 4,872 square feet, this luxurious two level custom home was crafted to exacting standards with the extensive use of natural elements. The 2’ X 6” exterior walls are Tivex wrapped for superior insulation and finished with hand peeled logs and stone. As you pull into the massive log portico, the distinctive entry and exit doors will catch your eye. They were crafted by the Scottsdale Art Factory then accented with hammered metal. Upon entering the home, the interior walls and ceilings throughout are finished in old world timbers, pine tongue & groove and stone. As you make your way through the home, feature after feature will stick out. It may be the Homerwood hand scrapped hickory wood floors, the Italian granite with a 3” fabricated break edge, the custom alder hand distressed cabinets and closets or the exquisite artisan crafted light fixtures. Regardless of what catches your eye, there are numerous state of the art conveniences that may initially go unnoticed but will definitely be appreciated including a Control 4 full home automation system with a programmable lighting and sound system and a Kaleidescape home video system.
The home at 7 Bear Mountain Trail features two master suites, 3 ½ baths, a gourmet kitchen, a dining room & great room with breathtaking views, a den and a large patio. The kitchen must be seen to be truly appreciated. Designed with the thought of entertaining, there is a working kitchen with mostly Wolf appliances separated from the entertaining area. The recessed bar with granite counter tops has a Native Trails copper trough sink and two Sub-Zero wine & beer refridgerators. There are two Sub-Zero refridgerators, a Meile steam oven, a built in Meile espresso/cappuccino maker and an ice maker. In addition to the two master suites there is an additional bed and bath with a private entrance by the pond and water feature as well as a 600 square foot convenience cabin attached to the oversized two car garage.
