Property Description

Does it feel as if that special escape you've been looking for around the World has been eluding you? Have you been looking for a unique, private, protected yet accessible mountain retreat but have not yet found it? Check out the three attached virtual tours and read on! Marbella Black Canyon, located just minutes from the Montrose commercial and private airports and situated inside the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is a home that has been 1.7 billion years in the making! You'll sense its ability to blend into its dramatic surroundings. For those of you who live the music you've experienced in your lives, Katharine Lee Bate's, "America the Beautiful" will resonate in the background, or perhaps the much more recent "Home" by Dierks Bentley. Every detail of Marbellla has been artfully and spiritually considered and chronicled so that you, your family and friends can continue the legacy. This includes from the incredible feat of acquiring one of only two private parcels located inside a National Park, to its innovative Earth friendly construction, to the amazing way the home integrates its access and recreational opportunities with those of our Federal Lands. (How about a quick flight in your helicopter to the home-there's a helicopter pad!) Each and every area has been individually designed and artfully created with its features, materials and furnishings recorded for you. The MLS 'hard-wiring' requires that the home is labeled 'stick built', but it actually contains no structural wood at all. It's steel framing with a hybrid, wind resistant and flameproof concrete-like material called Rastra. Log features are primarily wrapped steel. The single level home has no changes in grade and winding pathways and patios are welcoming for persons of all ages and capabilities. The front entrance with its colorful art glass celebrating the Gunnison River 2700 feet below welcomes you into the great room, which captures tremendous views of the Black Canyon and its famous 'Painted Wall' beyond. This living space is generously sized, with the large living room, kiva style dining room and fireplace areas and gourmet kitchen all open for entertaining. The bedrooms are accessed along winding river type hallways leading east and west. To the east you'll find the master suite, with impressive views of the canyon. The gorgeous stone master bath has a sunken tub that will make you feel as if you're bathing in the Canyon itself. This bath has one of two 'snail' showers, where you curl in to be surrounded by high ceilings and custom tile. This east wing has another custom bedroom, which has access onto its private patio to take in glorious sunrises. There is a second master suite to the west of the great room, and its canyon views are a special treat. Its bathroom features a 'mountain' walk in shower with raised mountain details and custom curved tiles. A particularly clever feature is the 4th bedroom area, which is designed to be an office, separate apartment or caretaker quarters. It locks off from the rest of the home and has its own private access. In all, there is over 3700 heated sq ft, with nearly 5000 sq ft if you count the broad verandas and covered porches, and entrances, walkways, and entrance drive feature a snowmelt system rarely found in the highest level area homes. Even the furnishings in Marbella Black Canyon are included-with just a few pieces of artwork set aside by the owner. Since the completion of the home in 2008 no one has ever lived here, other than a short four week period when it was operated as a very successful B and B, and four other week long guest visits. So-if you feel like you've been waiting forever to find that special home-just maybe Marbella has been waiting for you too! Check out the winter and summer photography and view the virtual tours. This is your special invitation to come see this amazing all-season Colorado home today.
