DSC_4127One of Telluride Real Estate’s most prestigious listings is located on a spectacular 35 acre promontory within the Gray Head Wilderness Preserve. The 360° panoramic views extend from San Joaquin Ridge to one of the most photographed 14ers in the San Juan Mountains and the red rock cliffs of the San Miguel Canyon. The owners purchased four Pre-Civil war, red/white oak barn and poplar and beech cabins, combining them to make a completely unique, 11,729  sq ft estate. The exterior is a harmony of old timbers and site harvested rock and adjoining one of Colorado’s best bacyards. The largest barn was dismantled and re-built on site to become the main living area with the original hay lofts including a 35’ ceiling. There are no interior walls except for a crumbling brick wall separating the formal dining room from the expansive, open kitchen, Great Room, including a massive stone (wood burning) fireplace; one of 6 fireplaces through out the home.

The turret, created to represent a silo, houses a custom antique iron and oak staircase which climbs to an observatory or descends to the workout, library, recreational and media rooms. The turret’s exterior is crafted exclusively with site harvested stone.

One of the two Master Bedroom suites is an old Kentucky cabin originally home to a family of eight, Pre-Civil War. The second Master suite is connected to the main residence by a New England style covered bridge. Two Tennessee log cabins known as a dogtrot house are stacked to accommodate a sumptuous master suite upstairs and guest quarters, complete with private kitchen, below.

The well-appointed landscaping surrounding Catmando provides an outstanding setting for entertaining or chilling. Features include a heated outdoor mountain Palapa, waterfall fed trout pond, hot tub and fire pit all connected with multi-tiered patios and decks all overlooking the rugged San Juans. The views are unmatched, custom finishes unrivaled, and opportunity unequalled. Just to see this gem of the Rockies is an experience nonpareil. See virtual tour here.




Five Bedrooms, five and one half baths, 11,729 square feet.
