When driving through Livermore looking at homes we had picked out...we saw a house in the valley of Turkey Roost that was big enough for probably 12 families to be living in....is it a celebrities home or what? I would think that the joy of living in that sort of scenic area would take away the necessity for such a showy house...guess not...

Sounds like something a Texan would build...

Colorado has been shifting away from the ideal that you seem to be looking for, and becoming more and more of a rich person's paradise. If you want to see Colorado's future, all you have to do is to take a trip to southern California because that's the path we're headed down.

Like a friend of mine who lived in the Texan-infested town of Lake City said, "The most obnoxious thing in Colorado is a Texan with a bunch of money. The second-most obnoxious thing is a Texan that wants you to think that he has a bunch of money."

Oh with the Texan bashing again...it doesn't bother me though...everytime I am in Colorado people are very very nice to us...so the Texan hater club doesn't deter me from my desire to live there...

Wow, I have been through Livermore probably 1000 times, never heard of Turkey roost. But there are some decent size Dude ranches in the area. Maybe that???

Haha...nope, this was a home...a huge one...but someone's home...and actually...for it to be in that valley...there are quite a lot of homes down there...Turkey Roost is a sort of winding, narrow, out of the way road...but it also had it's share of homes...to say the least I was very grateful for my Magellan...haha

Never heard of/seen the place...is this in the vicinity of Redfeather Lakes?

Must be a hefty sum to heat, cool, and insure the monstrosity.

It's a shame that somebody approved it's construction in the first place...I equate big houses with big egos and inferiority complexes.

There is a road called Turkey Roost Road in the Glacier View Meadows subdivision. Perhaps it was in there? While not on Turkey Roost Road, there is a 6200 SF home currently available for sale in the subdivision. It might be visible from Turkey Roost.

There is also a small mountain called Turkey Roost NW of Halligan Reservoir, in the Livermore area.
