Stepped stone terraces lead to one of many layers of outdoor entertainment offered by this luxury ski home in the mountains of Colorado. In this seating area, chairs made from rough-cut stones create an artful spot for conversation. A tranquil pool offers stunning mountain views.
A shaped driveway with lined stone border creates a beautiful entrance to this home. Bright grass and organized planted shrubs decorate the landscaping for a full style effect. Neutral tones on the home exterior allow it to blend beautifully with the surroundings while still standing out as the focal point.
This home features a narrow, bluestone walkway leading guests from the driveway to the open landing and front porch of this traditional-style property. Large trees and a low-cut hedge give the front yard a formal feel, with lush, flowing plants inside.
Beside the pool is a separate building made of hand-cut stone and standing seam copper roof to house a powder room, changing room, toys and pillows. In between the doors is also a outdoor shower to rinse off.
Looking at it now, it's hard to believe that the backyard once sloped straight down the hill. After careful planning by the landscape architects, locally cut stone retaining walls were added to level off the deck and recapture all of this useable space.
To carry the farmhouse aesthetic outdoors, designers used a roughly-cut stone table and rush-back-and-seat chairs for the outdoor dining area. Bluestone for the patio and the cool tint of the dining room windows extends the blue color scheme outside.
This luxury bathroom features a metallic pearl plaster wall finish with cut stone columns, chandeliers and an expansive double vanity. The window above the tub shutters for privacy at the touch of a button. A spacious walk-in shower features steam, spray and waterfall options.
Concrete stepping stones laid in a rock bed create a simple and textural walkway up the side of the home and yard. Mulched garden sections add natural decorations and levels of plant life beside the crisp, cut uniform yard. An outdoor living room is situated on the patio complete with stone fireplace and chimney.
