Sotheby's International Realty - Silverthorne, CO
Located on approximately 255 acres in Silverthorne, Colorado, LIV Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to present Triple Creek Ranch, one of the finest private horse ranches available for purchase in the Rocky Mountains. Unique to most Colorado ranches, Triple Creek is less than a 90-minute drive from the heart of Denver and just 35 minutes from a NetJets-rated airport in Kremmling.
Named for the convergence of three forks of Rock Creek and surrounded by the White River National Forest, Triple Creek Ranch is a sanctuary defined by timbered woodland, natural ponds and streams and open meadows, complete with magnificent mountain views, all home to abundant native flora and fauna. An equestrian lover’s paradise, Triple Creek Ranch features an impressive, professional indoor riding arena and an impeccably maintained 10-horse stable both designed by well-known Rocky Mountain architect, Jon Gunson. The property also offers multiple maintenance facilities, including a barn with a workshop and log cabin apartment for the horse manager, an additional small cabin for on-site staff, and a ranch manager’s home.
A picturesque, gently winding road rises through the ranch, passing a small historic cabin as it ascends to the top to two spectacular single-family log homes with rustic, yet elegant finishes. The larger of the two homes, at 7,500 sq. ft., includes 4-bedrooms, 4 ½ bathrooms, a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom guest apartment and a 4-car garage. The other home offers 6,300 sq. ft. and has 4-bedrooms, 4 ½ bathrooms, a 2-bedroom, 2- bathroom guest apartment, and a 3-car garage. Most uniquely, this home features a single acclimatized, upscale horse stable attached to the house with access through the garage. Both homes offer outstanding views, cozy fireplaces, large decks and abundant natural sunlight. For the past 15 years, Triple Creek Ranch has been the summer home to the Denver Bronco’s team mascot, Thunder. For ranch owners Sharon Magness Blake and Ernie Blake, retreating to their mountain escape with Thunder has been a favorite pastime. Sharon and Ernie are well-known in Denver for their generous and far-reaching philanthropy. They attend every home game at Mile High Stadium and await each Bronco touchdown, ready to launch Thunder in celebration showcasing his magnificent Arabian Horse stride across the field.
Triple Creek Ranch is a 4-season retreat and spectacular get-away. “It doesn’t take us long to get to the ranch from Denver.” comments Sharon. “Once you’re on the ranch, it is so secluded that you feel like you are far away. I call it my spiritual place.” When Sharon and Ernie purchased the ranch in 2003, they added the large indoor riding arena, 10-stall stable and the private horse stable attached to the main home, making Triple Creek Ranch a top-notch horse training and care facility. They also mapped and improved miles of trails throughout the ranch for hours of scenic hiking, biking or horseback riding. The property borders a vast wilderness area opening up even more recreation access, and there are 3 stocked ponds for the perfect fly fishing adventure. According to LIV Sotheby’s International Realty broker, Jack Wolfe, “Triple Creek Ranch is rare among all ranches in Colorado in that you seldom find such privacy with all the beauty, views and natural protection and yet be so accessible to local towns and resorts. The property is within 30 minutes to the world-class ski resorts of Keystone, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Loveland and Arapahoe Basin. It is just minutes to shopping and dining in Silverthorne and 12 minutes to I-70.”
