Few Colorado locations rival the beauty and history of the Upper Bear Creek Canyon. The iconic "Yankee Point" property is being offered for the first time in 37 years. Originally built in 1919, it has experienced many transformations while preserving the magic that makes "Upper Bear" one of the most sought after addresses in Colorado's front range. Towering pine, spruce, and aspen grace these beautiful grounds, almost 700 feet of Upper Bear Creek flows along and through the property filling 2 summer ponds along the way. Host to many past annual hayrides and a few special weddings, the land is spell binding. The home has evolved over its century plus of life, with each addition adding to the charm and history. Each room offers special custom surprises and stories, from the reclaimed doors to the stained-glass touches, the "oak filing cabinet" kitchen island, to the antique kitchen stove converted range that first came to the mountains in a covered wagon. A sandstone fireplace with natural gas-insert in the living room and freestanding gas stove in the great room warm your winter nights while mountain shade and breezes keep summer idyllic. The 4-car garage with shop is a terrific bonus. Wildlife shares your land and trout fills your stream; life has a different pace here. A little over an hour to DIA and 30-45 minutes to most Denver resources help explain the appeal of the Upper Bear Creek Canyon.
