This hidden paradise surrounded by Ponderosa Pines is more than just an elegant residence—it is an exquisite, iconic, and historic property. From the moment you come down the tree-lined drive through the automatic gates, you’re enveloped by the peace and calm of the surrounding forest, the serenity of the Rocky Mountains, and the quiet comforts of home. Retreat from the chaos and stress of everyday life and gather the people that matter most.
The site and original home were selected by Robert Norris, a local legend and the original Marlboro Man. While Norris finished building his home in 1961, the current owners completed a no-expense-spared remodel and update in 2008. The resulting estate is an exemplary nod to modern luxury with high-quality, low-maintenance finishes that are elegant yet worry-free.
Overlooking the home’s tennis and pickleball courts, saltwater pool, grand lawns, and lush landscaping, the primary suite and connecting bedrooms share a private courtyard with a fountain and outdoor fireplace. The guest suites have private bathrooms and easy access to the entertaining wing off the loggia, including a theater and an indoor, four-season arena for ice skating or hockey in the cooler months and anything else you can imagine year-round (think a riding arena, sports court, or a car collection, perhaps).
