LIV Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to introduce the availability of NFL Player, Paul Kruger, and his wife Jacqueline’s Evergreen, Colorado, residence. This 30-acre haven is dubbed “Serenity Falls”, due to its multiple cascading waterfalls that descend over large native boulders. This luxurious mountain-contemporary estate includes a main home with 9,155 square feet of living space, a two-bedroom guest cottage, an equestrian center with arena, and a 6,259 square foot gymnasium facility with a half-court basketball court, work-out room and spa bath.
The main entrance of the home is finished with a pair of antique wooden doors from a seventeenth century monastery in Spain, which harmonizes with the rich, exotic Cumaru wood floors, select alder baseboards, staircase and banister. The great room features a towering stone fireplace constructed in a repeating geometric pattern of Colorado sandstone which is reflected in the light fixtures. The materials, texture and rhythm of the design combine aesthetics equally from Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian concept and Asian notions of balance, texture and wabi-sabi.
The formal living room shares a double-sided fireplace with the dining room, creating an ideal space for entertaining in every room, and a gourmet kitchen features high-end appliances with designer kitchen accents including Irpinia cabinetry of African Wenge.
The kitchen allows for two different uses; Hosting large gatherings, with its abundance of countertop space and catering functionality, and, for orchestrating intimate dinners with family and friends.
Kitchen amenities include a 48” professional Sub Zero refrigerator with a stainless-steel interior and glass café doors, a centrally located kitchen island that includes a vegetable preparation sink and built-in steamer, a Miele espresso cappuccino machine, a KitchenAid icemaker, a Marvel wine cooler, and two Wolfe ovens with microwave drawer and a 48” professional Wolfe cook top complete with a suite of full service gourmet kitchen amenities.

A small office is located directly off of the kitchen and includes a built-in plasma television, access to a southwest facing view deck and a gas stone fireplace.
The master bedroom is located behind two grand twelve-foot high century old Chinese double doors, and features a tongue-in-groove knotty pine ceiling with exposed beam accents.
The master retreat is accessed through a circular passageway, under a dramatically arched wood beam, and features natural tile and marble accents with custom stone sinks accented with exotic pewter and pearl drain catchers on his and her vanities. An oversized spa tub includes a water feature built directly into the wall, and a glass steam shower, equipped with a large rain shower head located beneath a skylight. All tile floors have radiant heat and the towel racks are also heated.
The residences recreational room includes a theater with a Runco 103” plasma flat screen and THX Dolby Digital sound, wet bar and fabric upholstery between Wenge posts, creating the perfect sound environment.
Behind the bar area is the entrance to the wine cellar, which features a glass and stainless steel door. Carefully placed walls disguise the Miele espresso cappuccino maker and the microwave within the cabinetry space above. The bar itself is a slab front on Wenge veneer, with natural lacquer topcoat. All bar features are by Irpinia and offer lead glass accents, a unique LED lit faucet so as not to disrupt the theater room, a KitchenAid stainless steel refrigerator, four Sub Zero refrigerator drawers, a Miele dishwasher, and a Kitchen Aid icemaker.
