A contemporary mountain dwelling designed by Vertical Arts Architecture features a rich, light-filled interior, located in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The architecture showcases a mixture of a darkly stained timber framework, beautiful stone and walls of glass. The expansive glazing not only helps to bring the outdoors in, it allows unobstructed views of the surrounding aspen groves. The homeowner’s are a young family who requested to have their home designed with a refined yet casual aesthetic.
With a high-country landscape as its backdrop, this home embraces its breathtaking surroundings. Despite its mountainous location, this home was not designed as a traditional mountain chalet. Instead, if has a modern flair. An indoor-outdoor connection was achieved with a screened-in porch and beautifully handcrafted Hope’s Windows ( the world’s preeminent manufacturer of custom steel and bronze windows and doors). “Through it all, the design remains highly functional and child-friendly,” states the architects.
This mountain home is located in the the luxury neighborhood of Elkins Meadows, located just below Fish Creek Falls and a couple of miles from downtown Steamboat Springs. There are just 20 homesites nestled within 105 acres of aspens and open space. There is a private stocked pond, an owners cabin/beach house with a private beach for fishing, hiking trails, swimming, canoeing, or even watching the occasional moose wander down to graze on the pond’s vegetation. — as stated from Steamboat Springs Luxury Homes
