With over 5,800 square feet, this timber frame home has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 2 fireplaces, loft, spacious living room, library and a built in 3 car garage with a dumb waiter to carry your groceries upstairs. The home was designed for a rock star with metal trusses that intentionally convey a motif reminiscent of stage lighting. Perhaps most notable are the supersized windows that allow the views of snowcapped peaks to permeate daily life.
The front entry, marked by a heavy wooden door adorned with stained glass, is at the bottom of a series of cascading steps. The main floor consists of a master suite, library, powder room and a great room of all great rooms -- comprised of a kitchen, dining and living area. A pair of enormous stone pillars resting on a stone hearth support an impressive, reclaimed mantel over a Rumford fireplace that resides in the center of this comfortable living space. Large flagstones cover the entirety of this level except for a tile floor in the master bath. French doors exit onto a balcony that is graded into the hillside at one end. A dining area occupies the southwest corner of the great room and transitions directly into the kitchen.
The kitchen has an "open" flow that was designed for someone who really enjoys the art of cooking. It includes high-end stainless-steel appliances including a Thermador refrigerator, a Thermador double oven with a 6-burner range and griddle, Bosch dishwasher, built-in Sharp microwave and Grohe fixtures. There is no shortage of space with plenty of custom cabinetry and a walk-in pantry. The bay window above the sink allows you to gaze towards the mountains as you work.
The master bedroom suite is at the north end of the structure. Like the great room, it has a large stone hearth and a wooden mantle with a fireplace that provides warmth and ambience. A circular staircase leads to an airy loft that currently is used as a yoga and exercise studio. The en-suite bathroom is horseshoe shaped and can be entered from either side of the bed. With walk-in closet space, dual sinks, Jacuzzi tub, fully enclosed shower with 3 heads and separate water closets for him and her there is an abundance of space here.
The lower level also enjoys the ambience of a large, stone fireplace in the midst of a large living area. The quality of the woodwork throughout the home is exemplified by the "sunburst" pattern on the wall at the north end of this room that was artfully constructed using wood from the Gibson guitar factory. The lower level also has a kitchenette, a 3 car garage, 2 bedroom at opposite ends and a French door walkout at grade to a large fire pit ready for sunset and nighttime gatherings.
The caretaker home is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, double-wide modular home (1998) with 1,620 square feet on the main floor. The walkout basement is a self-contained unit with a full kitchen and 1,836 square feet. The home is surrounded by over 1,200 feet of decking and is sided with logs giving it the look and feel of a log cabin in the woods. Heating is by a propane forced air system. It has a 2-car garage attached.
There are two shops constructed adjacent to one another about 200’ east of the caretaker home. These large, heated buildings were constructed in 1998 and 2001 and measure 40x80 (3,200 sf) and 32x62 (1,984 sf) respectively.
The greenhouse was erected in 2001 and measures 12’x18’. It is located between the caretaker home and the shops.
Across the driveway from the caretaker home is a large, chain-link fenced and graveled dog run with an 80 square foot (8x10) doghouse constructed in 2001.
