Enter the Children’s Hospital Colorado Mighty Millions Raffle this year, and you’ll have pretty good odds (1 in 15, to be exact) of winning one of more than 8,600 prizes, ranging from a 2020 Range Rover Velar—plus lots of bonus cash—to gift cards galore. But if every raffle ticket is sold this year, you’ll have a 1 in 125,000 chance of winning the ultimate prize—the $2.4-million Grand Prize showhome decorated by top Denver designer Andrea Schumacher, plus $786,800—which are pretty good odds compared to, say, Powerball.
While the showhome is currently closed to public viewing due to the coronavirus pandemic, there’s perhaps never been a better time to support Children’s Hospital Colorado, a nonprofit that provides world-class care to kids of all ages and is facing increasing demand in response to COVID-19.
So what do you have to lose? Escape the news cycle and imagine your family taking up residence in this dream home:
Located in the foothills at 15201 Dinosaur Ridge Road, within Morrison’s Montane community, the brand-new custom contemporary home built by Ades Design Builders offers more than 6,700 square feet of living space, all professionally decorated by Andrea Schumacher Interiors. Designed to accommodate a large family and lots of guests, it includes six bedrooms and 6.5 baths, plus plenty of workspaces and a walkout lower level with family and fitness rooms.
On the main floor, an open floor plan allows for a seamless flow from the large entertaining kitchen to a sunny dining room and a living room with vaulted, wood-paneled ceilings and a two-story fireplace. Furnishings show off Schumacher’s glamorous style, which is never shy on color or texture. The great room, kitchen, and dining area open onto a 500-square-foot patio with views of the surrounding foothills. With a cozy fire pit, a large roof overhang for shade, and plenty of inviting seating options, it’s a second living room for all but the snowiest days.
The second-floor master suite includes a spacious bedroom with a fireplace clad in sleek, matte-black tiles, an adjacent private patio, and gorgeous, texture-rich furnishings. There’s also a bedroom-size walk-in closet and a master bathroom with dual vanities.
“We wanted it to be really Zen,” Schumacher says of the serene master bathroom, which features a freestanding soaking tub and a glass-walled shower with river-rock accents and a teak bench.
The walkout lower level is designed for gatherings of all ages, with a family room for movie nights, a fitness room, game area with bar, a reading nook beneath the stairs, and, up a short, kid-friendly ladder, a hidden playroom designed just for little ones.
