EVERGREEN, Colo — A French-style chateau set in the mountains of Evergreen recently hit the market with an asking price of $5.2 million.
The five-bedroom, eight-bathroom home at 30726 Snowbird Lane is set on a 9-acre lot with more than 4,400 square feet of balconies to enjoy views of the Rocky Mountains and the Hiwan Golf Club. Located in the gated community of Ridge at Hiwan Estates, it also features a moat-like water feature surrounding the residence.

Living in the 11,193-square-foot home was a dream of current owners Gregory and Regina Watson, they told Denver Business Journal. Gregory owns the investment management firm Watson Capital Management, which has offices in Denver and Washington, D.C., and Regina is general counsel and chief compliance officer at Denver-based Bow River Capital.
Years ago, when the couple began a search to relocate from Washington, D.C., Gregory and Regina said they looked at states including Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, California, Oregon and Washington. But Gregory, who attended Evergreen High School, was drawn back to the area when they spotted the chateau for sale in 2013.
