A cozy mountain retreat with amazing views of the Colorado ski slopes


This cozy mountain retreat was custom designed by Dragonfly Designs, located just outside the bustle of downtown Breckenridge, Colorado. Boasting incredible views of the slopes, this dwelling features customized details specifically tailored to enhance function, luxury, casual aesthetics, and the homeowner’s lifestyle needs and preferences.

The exterior design of this 6,500 square foot mountain contemporary home is mostly stone from Gallegos Stone, reclaimed beams, and iron, split in a balanced presentation. Boulders line the driveway, and the house looks like it was notched out of the hillside. This gorgeous mountain escape is capable of sleeping upwards of 20 people.

A bronze chandelier from Curry and Co. adds a modern touch. On the floors, flagstone in an irregular cut adds an organic touch to otherwise straight lines and angles.
