Relaxing waterfront getaway with rustic elements in the Rocky Mountains

grand-lake-home-rustic-exterior

Vertical Arts Architecture was responsible for re-imagining and enlarging this spectacular rustic-modern waterfront getaway on Grand Lake, Colorado. The largest natural body of water in the state, the lake sits at an elevation of 8,369 feet. The town is a popular summer tourist destination, as it is the closest gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. This is what drew the Denver-based homeowners, a family of five, to find their dream vacation home.

Boasting mesmerizing views of the water and surrounding mountains, this residence was in desperate need of a full renovation. The architects increased the floor plan layout from 2,500 square feet to 5,400 square feet, meeting the owner’s wishes for capturing views from the living room and master bedroom, as well as modern elements of design. The exterior facade is a mix of stone, reclaimed wood, and metal siding with large panel windows.

Above: Reclaimed oak floors were used throughout, sourced from a North Carolina factory. The material was selected for its durability — it will hold up to wet suits, sandy feet, kids and dogs. The thickness of these wood floors will get better as they get banged up.

Above: Living spaces are furnished with comfortable yet opulent pieces, many of them sourced from Denver-based Studio Como. Since this is a vacation home, it should offer relaxed living and speak of summertime fun. Spaces should be decked out with a layering of soft fabrics that feel nice to the touch.

Vertical Arts was also responsible for designing the landscaping and exterior elements like the gate and hot tub surround. An expansive patio with seating areas and a fire pit offers lakefront views. Stepping stones leads through the yard and down to the dock, where the homeowner’s can enjoy boating, kayaking and paddle boarding.
