Founders Estate


Founders Estate is a four-bedroom alpine home that enjoys great privacy and has a tranquil setting beside the lake. It is very convenient to both the slopes and the free Gondola that connects Mountain Village with Telluride. Guests will also find that the villa is a short walk to the town centre where you have some lovely cafes, restaurants, and shops.

The property is a wonderfully designed building with a large open plan great room, dining and kitchen set on 2 levels. The great room, which has hardwood dark timber flooring and double high windows is the perfect place to relax in the evenings after a day on the slopes. Your eyes will be immediately drawn to the stone-faced fireplace which will soon rid any snow chills that you may have. There is also a bar counter with 4 high stools neatly positioned in the corner of the room.

Just above the living room, is the formal dining area which comfortably seats up to 8 guests. Adjacent to the dining room is the openly designed kitchen, with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and ample storage. The open floor plan extends beyond the kitchen to the media room, with large flatscreen TV and seating for the entire group.

It's from the Media room where guests can gain access to the large patio area outback. The most picturesque views are from here as you have Elk Pond at your doorstep with the snow-capped Colorado mountains as its backdrop. The patio is furnished and has a fire pit and gas barbeque which make it a great chill-out area in the evenings.

A solid wood spiral staircase will take you upstairs to the Master bedroom. This room features a king bed, TV, en suite bath with steam shower and a large, jetted tub. The room is very spacious and has wonderful views also.

Back on the main level, you have the other 3 bedrooms. The first has a king bed and the second has two queen beds. It is good to note that these 2 bedrooms share a bathroom (full bath and shower) that is also located in the hall area. The 3rd guest master suite comes with a king bed with an en suite bathroom consisting of a shower/tub combo.

This home comes with a 2 car garage for guests use.

Telluride is one of Colorado’s premier skiing destinations stretching over 2,000 acres of unmatched snow sports. It also has plenty of character and charm dating back to its authentic 19th-century mining town background. The mountain links the town of Telluride, full of historic thrilling adventure, diverse culture and majestic mountainous beauty, at the bottom of the slopes and Mountain Village up on the slopes. Mountain Village, by contrast, is a modern, pedestrianized ski resort village in the style of the famous Beaver Creek village. Both are fully connected to the slopes and to each other via a complimentary gondola which is a novel method of public transport and operates well into the after-dinner hours.

The skiing here offers a huge variety of terrain for all levels of skiers and boarders. The majority of slopes in Telluride are dedicated to beginners and intermediate skiers, but there is also an amazing ‘Hike to Terrain’ on the upper part of the mountain. All complimented by the dramatic views of the majestic San Juan Mountains. Telluride will fulfil the dreams of all snow lovers.
