Nestled into the hillside of one of Steamboat Springs’ most beautiful valleys, this custom home sits in a private enclave in the woods surrounded by an aspen grove and overlooking a nature preserve. The homeowners were seeking a light, airy and modern home that would be perfect for indoor/outdoor entertaining and could house guests from multiple generations.
The show-stopping home is situated to capture the best views and includes a wrap-around porch and patio on the upper level and walk out patio on the lower level. Our expert landscape architects crafted a multi-level boulder wall to create intimate outdoor spaces perfect for entertaining.
The home’s unique mix of materials begins outside and continues indoors. The beautiful warm tones of the cedar wood siding stand out against both the dark steel beams and bright white limestone. Near the front door, rusted corten metal accents on the home and the garage shimmer with a limestone veneer, giving the courtyard space more dimension. Guests can glimpse expansive views beyond from the front door while admiring the cylindrical stone chandelier suspended over the staircase.
Organic Plus Modern Interior Design
Inside the owner’s minimalist, modern style comes to life using a balance of casual furnishings and glam fixtures with nods to a rustic mountain style. The cedar ceiling and steel beams continue into the house, as does the honey-hued stonework of the fireplace complete with a concrete hearth. Seating areas feel tailored yet casual by incorporating cozy accessories on top of modern furniture. In the kitchen, matte lacquer and rift oak slim shaker cabinets create crisp modern lines which are then accented by a delicate blue/gray glass tile backsplash. Nature-inspired and rustic touches such as the cowbell-shaped pendant lighting, steel end caps on the island and wave pattern created by the tile complete the cohesive look. The kitchen then extends beyond to feature a wet bar for coffee and drinks with floating shelves made of glass and steel.
The kitchen and main living spaces seamlessly extend to the outdoors using floor-to-ceiling windows paired with larger than life sliding glass doors to create a year round entertainment hub. The dining area shimmers with golden hues in the table and chairs and even within the dark pattern of the accent wall’s wallpaper. Throughout the home you’ll continue to find the juxtaposition of neutral tones and moody accents paired with glam and natural fixtures, such as the powder bath with deep green walls, dark stone tile, dimpled pendant lights and gold fixtures.
Luxury Interior Design
The primary bedroom is anchored by textured wallpaper, giving the crisp space a focal point to be accented by colorful pillows and bedding. A wall of gray stone work features another fireplace to relax and enjoy. The primary bathroom features a stunning view from the standalone tub under a branching chandelier.Though upon first glance the walk-in shower seems to feature a spa-like wall of cedar slats, it’s actually ceramic tile. The nods to nature everywhere create an oasis the homeowners can enjoy privately.
On the lower level of the home, warm oak and bright neutral walls are complemented by the dark, corten metal fireplace. Younger family members will delight in a hidden staircase nook while all guests will appreciate separate bedroom and bathroom suites. And of course, no true mountain home is complete without a dedicated mudroom to house all weather gear. The result is a modern home still suited for the mountains.
