Ski season is on the minds of many after suffering through one of the hottest and most relentless summers on record. Even those who prefer fun in the sun are looking enviably at photographs of snow on the slopes. For diehard snow skiers or those who want to take up the sport this year, a ski home with today’s industrial vibe is one of the first to come on the season’s market.
Designed by a custom architectural metal fabricator and sculptor as his own year-round residence, this maintenance-free structure has combined cutting-edge, industrial-style art and liveability. Sited on one lofty acre in Denver’s bedroom community of Evergreen, only 40 minutes west of Denver, views from the property are mesmerizing and the house, with its wide expanse of two-story glass walls has been designed to capture it year round. At 5,400 square feet and an additional 2,000 square feet of outdoor living space, the four-bedroom, four-bath house is an open and airy space with soaring ceilings, skylights, dramatic curving and open steel stairs with an open grid landing. The designer has created art from the functional workings of the structure which most architects hide behind drywall. Elements in the design such as the large, open commercial kitchen and yet another on a slightly smaller scale in the outdoor living area create venues for entertaining large groups while the private areas of the home create a feeling of warmth. Other unique design features include ski lift style sofas in the main living area and stylish wine cooler. A separate design studio on the property is yet another enclave with use limited only by the imagination of the new owner.
Industrial chic combined with art and function in this mountain home just outside of Denver is priced at $1.55 million.
