Escape the heat, this mountain retreat home in Forest Highlands is situated on an acre in the pines off the Canyon Golf Course. This walkout basement design offers privacy and functionality for comfortable living on the main level, and additional bedrooms on the lower level for guests. An open-concept living area is complete with a sunny breakfast nook, granite counters at the eat-at bar, formal dining room and inviting living area with Malpais rock-faced gas fireplace. Hart pine flooring and walls of windows create a warm, welcoming space to take in the tree top views and natural lighting. Two bedrooms and a well-appointed laundry/utility room on this main floor allow for easy, single-level living--one bedroom is currently used as an office, and the other is an en-suite primary, fitted with soaking tub and separate shower, walk-in closet and personal deck under the pine tops. A spacious, covered and open deck on this upper level is a perfect spot to enjoy the cool mountain breezes. On the lower level, there are three additional bedrooms and baths, offering multiple functions, noted in one room currently being used as a bunk space leading to a private, shaded patio area. There is also a separate entry to an additional room that is currently being used as an exercise room, but could easily be a children's play room, teens' game room or private office.
