What does your dream home look like? Perhaps it has views of snow-topped mountain peaks. Or maybe, rooms surrounded by glass that allow you to never miss a sunrise or sunset. What about a room that allows you to relax and enjoy a movie on a beautiful day with doors that open up and allow you to feel like you’re enjoying a movie outdoors?Maybe you want your dream home to have a modern hot tub you can relax in while taking in panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains.
It sounds like a dream home, but this home is a reality.
296 Gray Head Lane Sunset Ridge’s sense of arrival can only be described as awe- inspiring --- Cliff side, on a private peninsula with a breath taking mountainous panorama acclaimed by many to be the most stunning in all of the Rocky Mountains. The residence’s bold, yet simplistic, linear architecture naturally draws a first time visitor to a glass, entryway door, 9 feet in height topped with clerestory above offering a first hint ofthe refinement of finishes and viewscape beyond. Upon entry, a dramatic explosion of natural cream limestone interior walls, mountain views and sunlight causes pause – the owner along with the renowned local architect have artfully designed a residence that not only frames the view, but seemingly integrates the mountains as an intrinsic element of the structure.
The chef’s kitchen, living and dining spaces flow as one with upfront views offered by floor to ceiling glass and expansive outdoor living patios accessed through massive glass sliding doors. Summers and warm winter days unite the indoor and outdoor spaces and present an ideal space for entertaining. An interior bridge, also enveloped in glass overa landscaped stream with waterfalls, leads to a master wing complete with private office and, of course, possessing the same dramatic views permeating the entire estate. Other main level floor plan components include a hearth room off the main kitchen, laundry, powder room, mud room and guest master with ensuite bathroom.
Below the master suite exists a fully equipped exercise room with a mini kitchen complete with a spacious steam room, bathroom with shower and a large stainlesssteel spa with opening windows for that truly inside/out spa feel. The balance of the lower ground floor level is dedicated to family entertainment --- a chic and expansive family room with bar, intimate seating area with TV, ping pong / pool tables, cuttingedge theater room with luxurious seating for 9, dedicated video gaming room and two elegant guest suites with ensuite baths. The entire lower ground floor has direct access to the stunning landscaped gardens and large pond.
The upper level is separated into two distinct spaces accessed from floating, walnuttread stairwells off the main level and encompass a caretaker’s quarters with separate bathroom and private kitchen with dishwasher, bunk room for eight people with ensuite facilities and yet another guest bedroom with large ensuite bathroom. It simply cannot be overstated that virtually every room in the entire residence is designed to enjoy the stunning natural panorama and is blessed with expansive window openings, terraces and balconies.
