MOUNTAIN HOME OF THE YEAR

Made predominately of concrete and steel, this 6,000 square foot home is just outside of Pagosa Springs, Colorado.

PROJECT DETAILS

This mountain modern home is built near the small town of Pagosa Springs, CO, on a hillside at the base of Wolf Creek Pass. As you drive up the quarter mile long asphalted driveway, you can’t help but marvel at the design of this three story, 6,000 sf, hip roof home. The home is predominantly constructed of concrete and steel. The siding consists of wood, metal, and stone. The wood was custom made, the metal is custom engineered to fit the home. The stone comes from Texas.

As you park at the top of the driveway on the circular drive and walk toward the entry, across a charming bridge with a rock bedded stream flowing beneath, you open a gorgeous, horizontal wood slat, pivot door with a handmade silver antler door pull. You enter in on the second floor which is the great room, there are extensive floor to ceiling windows on the north and east walls, showing a beautiful mountain range. There is a grandiose peninsula fireplace inset on a massive slab of limestone (Texas). The fireplace is topped with a black steel I-beam with stacked steel panels.

The floors throughout most of the home are natural walnut with a mix of light brown, gray and white to bring the colors in the home together. The master bedroom has floor to ceiling windows as well, in three of the four walls. In the east wall is a 48” see-through gas fireplace connecting the bedroom to the personal office. When you enter the master bath, you are mesmerized by the white with gray strain marble floor, countertops and floor to ceiling marble shower. The master closet is a “U” shape separating his and hers and opens on the opposite end into the laundry room for easy access.

Downstairs is a walkout basement. There are two guest bedrooms with private full baths. Separating the two bedrooms are a large media room, game room with powder bath, exercise room and full bar. The north side walks out onto a covered patio entertaining area with a wood burning fireplace and custom made concrete patio furniture. Off to the right of the patio is a short pathway which leads to a romantic sitting area with fire pit.

The stairs to both upper and lower levels of the home are custom built 4” thick wood slab treads, centered on a single steel beam, which presents the illusion of floating stairs. Walking up the steps to the third floor you are astounded by the feeling of being outdoors, because the entire south wall is floor to ceiling windows and below you is a lovely courtyard with the charming rock bedded stream. Upstairs are the private guest quarters. The full bath has marble floor, countertop, and shower. The bedroom north wall is entirely windows and a sliding patio door that opens onto a private balcony overlooking Pagosa Peak. This room has the best view in the house. There is also an intimate gas fireplace in the east wall that is surrounded by a vast marble slab.

Surrounding the south side of the home is National Forest, with boundless opportunity for hiking and hunting. This home sits on 35 acres; on the lower half you can access the San Juan River or a private pond for unlimited fishing.
