Hood Park Manor – Telluride
Hood Park Manor is undoubtedly one of Mountain Village’s finest estates. With commanding views of the Mount Wilson range and Palmyra peak, this ski-in/ski-out home has nine bedrooms, nine bathrooms and three half-bathrooms spread over the main residence and guesthouse. The recently built home has immaculate, classic finishes and contemporary furnishings, which combine to give the feeling of a warm modern mountain retreat.
A grand wooden front door opens into the formal entrance of the home on the middle floor, which features the main kitchen, dining and living areas. Just beyond the front entrance to the right is a large kitchen and lounge area with huge glass doors leading out to the patio. This kitchen is made for entertaining in style, with granite countertops and the very best appliances from Wolf, Subzero and Viking. There is also a butler’s pantry off to the side of the kitchen with extensive counter space for meal service. There are three dishwashers in the kitchen and pantry! The kitchen shares an open plan living space, which has couches, a flat-screen TV, a breakfast table for six people, and a small desk area. Beyond the pantry there is a half-bath and a service entrance from the outside.
Out on the main patio, there is an impressive summer kitchen complete with Viking grill, a fridge, chopping board and icemaker all set in subtle sandstone. There are extensive seating and lounging areas on the deck, overlooking the ski run, Hood Park and the surrounding mountain ranges.
Back inside the home, on the left side of the home’s main entryway is a large dining table, with seating for 13. The dining room also has a fireplace and a door leading out to an intimate patio and fireplace for pre-dinner gathering. Straight ahead of the main entry, the hallway opens up into the main living room. A large gas fireplace is the centerpiece of this room, and is surrounded by sofas. There is also a card table in the corner of the room. Cathedral ceilings and huge glass windows reveal stunning views of the San Sophia range to the north and the Mt. Wilson and Palmyra ranges to the south. The spectacular views from this home are showcased from every room. Glass doors lead out onto the south-facing front patio, where there is a large round hot tub overlooking the ski run.
Beyond this impressive living room is a wet bar area with granite countertops, a wine fridge, icemaker and dishwasher. There is also a comfortable lounge area with leather sofas and a flat-screen TV. This area also overlooks the patio and hot tub. A hallway down the side of the bar leads to a VIP king suite with walk-in closet, private deck and en suite bathroom. The bathroom has two sinks, a steam shower and tub. This suite also has a gas fireplace. A second VIP king suite is situated beyond the wet bar, at the far east end of the home. The second VIP suite has all of the amenities of the first, plus double glass doors leading out onto the main patio. Between the bar and the second VIP suite is a ski room, which leads in from the patio. There is plenty of hanging space, as well as boot and glove warmers. There is another half bathroom across the hallway from the ski room.
The master suite occupies the top floor of the home. Just beyond the main entry way is a large staircase that winds up the left. There is a loft area at the entrance to the master suite where there is an open office area with two desks and a Dell printer/copier. The master suite has a king-sized bed, a private deck, and breathtaking views of the ski resort. No need for a ski report from this suite!! The master bathroom is exquisite, with separate vanities, a jetted tub, a steam shower and an open dressing room.
The lower level of the home has an additional four guest suites – three king suites and one bunkroom, with four twin beds in total. All bedrooms have a private bathroom with steam showers. Two of these king suites also have a tub. All bedrooms at Hood Park Manor have a flat-screen TV and cable.
Downstairs there is also a large living room with a pool table, flat-screen TV, gas fireplace and sofas. Additionally, there is a north-facing patio with a second hot tub on the lower level.

Separate to the main residence is a guesthouse with two queen bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, a cozy living area with a gas fireplace and a full kitchen. The guesthouse also looks over Hood Park and the ski run. This would be a great place to house your pilot, nanny, chef, or just overflow guests.
