Colorado has no shortage of stunning homes. It is far easier to find a completed house to settle into than build your own. When a Front Range couple discovered a spectacular property in the view-oriented, Steamboat Springs subdivision of Boulder Ridge, they were smitten. Their mission began with the search for a firm that would assist in crafting their vision of a home that would accommodate their contemporary active, outdoor-loving lifestyle.
Looking to design more than a structure they searched for a team that would allow the location’s stunning vistas to shine through and be participants in the design of the living space both inside and out.
They came upon Vertical Arts Architecture in Steamboat’s Marketplace Plaza. With additional offices in Denver and Vail, they didn’t have to travel far to access an extraordinary group of professionals. Vertical Arts’ offers more than a blueprint; the firm consists of a multi- disciplinary team of veteran architects, land planners, landscape designers, and interior design services to assist in every phase of a build and design project.
This beautiful property was sighted by Vertical Arts to take advantage of the slope of the lot to showcase the area’s panoramic views of Steamboat Ski Resort and Fish Creek Falls Canyon. Every level of the home was built to access the outdoors and allow movement from each outdoor living space back to the house with a terraced landscape design.
Floor-to-ceiling windows and large lift and slide doors on the backside of the home bring the outdoors in at all times of the year. This mountain home is not yesteryear’s dark and heavy wooded house. The design is modern with a rustic flair, yet open and airy with a simple chic palette creating a canvas to allow the couple’s eclectic collection of artwork and personal items take center stage.
Although neighbors are nearby, the team at Vertical arts brought a sense of privacy. Just 5 minutes from downtown Steamboat Springs this home is an easy retreat yet offers the feeling of being tucked away from it all, a perfect combination for mountain town living.
