This mountain modern residence situated on a 35-acre parcel about 10 miles north of Silverthorne is oriented around incredible views of the east side of the Gore Range. The six-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bath home functions as a family retreat and a place of reflection and spiritual renewal. The high-curved great room ceilings that open to the sky and the transparent window wall were designed to connect the home’s occupants to nature through the dramatic views of the mountains and the surrounding natural landscape, while the cozy sitting area’s sculptural stone fireplace helps connect the home’s occupants to each other. Conversely, the master suite is located in a separate structure connected with a glass walkway off the great room, providing tranquility and privacy.
The design team spent extensive time with the owners walking the site to determine the perfect location and orientation for the home. They set up camp chairs and tables on the selected spot to collaboratively sketch the design concept, which was based on the owners’ desire for a gracious home with extensive indoor-outdoor living for entertaining, as well as sequestered spaces for private relaxation.
