A beautiful and sophisticated home at the base of the Rocky Mountains

mountain modern home exterior

This sophisticated mountain modern home was designed by Haven Design and Construction, perched at the top of a hillside in Littleton, Colorado. Large windows frame picturesque views of Chatfield Reservoir and the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, while sunsets viewed from the front of this house are simply breathtaking.

Streamlined rustic exterior materials and sleek black framed windows were selected to complement the home’s modern exterior architecture. Wild grasses and native plantings, selected by the landscape architect, complete the exterior. Continue below to see the rest of this sensational home that took two years to complete…

The foyer’s custom-designed pivot door is a true showstopper. The 5′ x 9′ wood front door and sidelights harmonize perfectly with the nearby staircase. A circular marble foyer table serves as a striking entry focal point, complemented by round ottomans beneath it that offers a convenient spot for removing snowy boots before stepping into the rest of the home.

The modern, minimalist staircase within this residence serves as the connecting element between all three levels. This architecturally noteworthy staircase features ‘floating treads’ and a sleek glass and metal railing. Injecting a dose of drama, a breathtaking multi-pendant chandelier takes center stage in the stairwell, gracing both the main and upper levels

Each hand-blown glass pendant has been strategically positioned to create a striking cascading effect down the stairwell. Additionally, an adjacent elevator (not pictured) offers convenience for carrying groceries or laundry, providing an alternative to using the stairs.

The shell lines have a 1960’s feel. And that’s not a bad thing.
