Set upon a picturesque backdrop with the sound of the stream, the smell of the flowers and coziness of rugged elegance, 14065 Highway 83 is an estate that one dreams of. Located in Colorado Springs, this estate is ideally positioned with easy access to the city’s offerings complete with majestic views of Pikes Peak beyond the home’s gardens and wooded meadows. Southard Star Ranch is listed for $8,750,000 by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty broker Elaine Stucy.
Encompassing an incredible 54.9 acres, Southard Star Ranch is an estate with a country-like setting combined with charm and comfort. Influenced by Pennsylvania Dutch style, the interiors of the home are grand yet unpretentious with reclaimed antique chestnut floors, solid beams, iron railings, and Venetian Plaster walls.
The great room exudes gorgeous ambiance with cathedral ceilings, an open layout, exquisite chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling views of the beautiful exteriors from a separate sitting room. An oversized wood-burning fireplace radiates the room, which flows into the gourmet kitchen.
A dining wing is set apart for formal entertaining, with double-doors that lead to the private balcony that overlooks the lush gardens. Beyond the caterer’s kitchen, you will find an enchanting, winding staircase that leads to the old-world wine cellar.
The 14,653-square-foot home includes seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. The master suite is a true oasis including a gym, spa-like bathroom, master closet, office sitting room, and sleeping room. Warm up in your own secluded retreat with the master-bedroom fireplace framed by artisan tiles and a sensational mantel. The office, located within the master suite, provides access to the terrace to enjoy the beauty of the estate’s grounds from your own room.
Perfect for extended family or friends, a secluded staircase leads to a private bedroom suite with an office. Beyond the extra bedroom, this home is built to provide endless entertainment options with plentiful outdoor spaces including an outdoor kitchen and an open basement complete with a wet bar. Step outside of the home and into an incredible barn converted to the “Rod-and-Gun Club,” which is the ultimate getaway.
Enjoying the change of seasons at this estate is an experience in itself, with green rolling meadows and flower gardens in the spring to beautiful snow-capped views of Pikes Peak in the winter.
“This is a rare opportunity for a perceptive buyer to have the best lifestyle today in an enclave of beauty and privacy. With a view to the future of the ranch, the over 50 acres can be either a legacy property or an amazing development opportunity,” said Stucy.
