Its art community, historic buildings, shops, and restaurants are worth exploring year-round. Several churches and a medical center add to Westcliffe’s vibrancy as the hub of the Wet Mountain Valley. Third, Five Star Ranch is exceptional in the variety of recreational activities available within a short drive. Elk and deer hunting are possible on the ranch itself and the nearby San Isabel National Forest. Trout fishing and boating are only minutes away at Deweese Reservoir and Grape Creek. Only a bit further, over 100 miles of Gold Medal Water is available on the Arkansas River, beloved by fly fishermen worldwide. Hiking, horseback riding, OHV riding, and jeeping are excellent on the nearby National Forest land in the summers, as are snowmobiling, ski touring and snowshoeing in the winter. Finally, and perhaps most notably, Five Star Ranch is exceptional in the artistry and architecture of its award-winning lodge-like ranch house. Featured as Timber Home Living’s “Home of the Year” in 2009., this custom-designed timber frame home is 10,292 square feet of unmatched mountain luxury. Its lodge-like feel begins with its unique 42-foot arched canopy marking its main entrance. This entrance leads to a vast great room with 22-foot high ceilings with a walk-around natural stone fireplace, large dining area, and open kitchen. The kitchen at 370± sq. ft. and will be the envy of any chef. Designed by Smallbone of Devizes out of London. The full-grain maple and birch burr cabinets by Irpinia, out of Toronto, Canada, accompanied with beautiful granite countertops. Equipped with high-end appliances, such as Thermador, Miele, Wolf, Viking, Pisher-Pakel, and Bosch, giving a true gourmet kitchen experience. Overall this space spreads a vaulted, open beam ceiling that completes the blend of rustic/modern styling that captures the best of the surrounding environment. In-floor heating throughout keeps the main house very comfortable twelve months of the year. A master suite is accessed off the great room, which includes its own fireplace. Completing the main level is a five-car garage. Upstairs via an open spiral staircase lies a reading room and a unique observation room that creates a space that captures 360 degrees of mountain views. The lower level of the main house is 4130 square feet, fully finished, and has a private office, gym, and full bathroom. The main home is exceptional enough in its own right, but Five Star Ranch includes even more amenities, including an attached 3,276± square-foot guest house with four bedrooms and three baths, and a two-car garage. A short hike into the woods leads to a refurbished rustic cabin, perfect for stargazing. Two large metal shops with overhead garage doors complete the improvements at Five Star Ranch and allow plenty of workspace for vehicles and other equipment.
