Mountainside retreat showcases breathtaking views of Colorado peaks

contemporary-mountain-home-entry

This mountainside retreat designed by BHH Partners and built by Pinnacle Mountain Homes is perched high in the Eagles Nest neighborhood of Silverthorne, Colorado. A visually striking element to this modern home is its butterfly roof, which folds into itself — not to mention the Williams Fork ridgeline that serves as a dramatic backdrop.

Despite the cold metal and glass industrial elements that typically define mountain modern homes, this one infuses warmer organic elements, such as walnut and stone. You will also find seamless indoor-outdoor transitions in this 4,100 square foot five-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath dwelling. The contemporary design blends modern lines, natural materials, unexpected angles and the softness of natural light.

Nineteen-foot-tall windows border a blended living, dining, and kitchen space and extend into the landscape to provide a unique architectural focal point with an equally impressive backdrop. Since this home was constructed on a steeply sloping site, the project team spread the house out over three levels. The homeowners opted for an elevator in the center of the home, this way they would be able to retire in this home.

Designed with entertaining in mind, this three-level home features three master suites, a custom wet bar, and a main-level wine cellar. Bi-fold glass doors set a delible boundary between the dining room and deck for a seamless extension of space and convenient access to the custom patinaed-steel pizza oven.

The lower-level showcases a more intimate space including a custom wet bar, hot-rolled-steel gas-fireplace, a custom woodworking shop and a second outdoor gathering space, complete with a hot tub and gas fire pit.

Above: Walls of glass in this home present ever-changing views for the homeowners, keeping them connected to the environment. Living spaces provide 180-degree views that stretch from the Lower Blue River Valley to the Continental Divide. The canted windows are by Sierra Pacific, designed to make you feel like you’re going to fall over the edge!

Above: Due to the angle of the ceiling, which reaches 22 feet in height, it wasn’t possible to use traditional lighting in the kitchen. A custom metal track lighting is suspended above the massive island.

Above: This kitchen is perfect for entertaining, featuring an 18-foot-long granite island in a leathered “meteor shower” finish. A quartz countertop is used for the perimeter cabinets, complemented by a white beveled glass subway tile backsplash. Cabinetry is stained and sustainably sourced bamboo.

Five cast-bronze climbers accent the stone wall in the stairwell to the main level. The lower level was designed to accommodate overnight guests.
