STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO – Situated high on the ridge overlooking the Elk River, Elk Vu Ranch is one of Steamboat’s finest river properties and truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This spectacular ranch offers views in every direction consisting of 87 acres and located just 6 miles from Steamboat Springs. 

The upper ridge consists of roughly 15 acres of hay meadow where the home is situated with spectacular 360 views including the Elk River, Sleeping Giant, Hahn’s Peak and the Steamboat Ski Area. The lower portion of the land offers roughly a mile among two channels of the Elk River offering some of Northwest Colorado’s most coveted fly-fishing waters.

Just 6 miles from town, this property offers convenience yet privacy with an architecturally modern home hosting clean lines and an abundance of windows to enhance the amazing views. The design lends itself to spacious living and efficiency with high vaulted ceilings adorned with custom structural trusses and an open floor plan for extraordinarily gracious living.

Everything you need is on the main level including a spacious master, office, laundry, large great room, media room, mud room and garage. Three secondary bedrooms occupy the upper level along with a loft space that overlooks the great room. The home is easily modifiable to add more bedrooms or living spaces.

There are wonderful outdoor living spaces situated to overlook the river including a covered patio with a custom Parilla-style wood fired grill. It’s easy to entertain a crowd or simply enjoy the spectacular scenery. Thoughtful xeriscape graces the exterior of the home allowing for a beautiful landscape with a conscientious approach to our environment.
