Live above it all in this architectural masterpiece by Karen Keating with postcard-worthy views of Soda Creek Valley, the surrounding mountains, and Continental Divide. Positioned on a mountaintop and conscientiously built into the hillside, this home is the definition of Colorado serenity. The large rooms, soaring ceilings, and walls of windows throughout are mindfully designed to seamlessly flow into each other and provide welcoming spaces to gather or relax. A two-story wall of Black Crow Slate within the entry staircase features a dramatic waterfall and provides the peaceful sound of flowing water throughout the house. The kitchen includes African Absolute Black Granite counters, a Sub Zero refrigerator, and Dacor appliances, as well as a large island and breakfast nook. The main floor master suite has sweeping curved windows, a fireplace, and spacious walk-in closet, while the lower level master guest suite is tucked away with a sitting room, five piece bath, and private patio. The lower level also has a theater room, game room, and three bedrooms with their own baths, built-in lofts, and climbing walls. Two garages and large mudrooms contain shelves and cubbies to store ski and sporting gear. Multiple balconies and decks encourage outdoor entertaining. See why this home received an honorable mention for 2003 Home of the Year.
