Text Box: Completed March, 2008 - This imposing home has a main floor footprint of just under 1,400 square feet and a total of 3,250 square feet of living area with an upstairs master suite and guest bedroom suite as well as a finished basement with large office, exercise room and laundry. In addition, there is a 400 square foot drive-in basement garage.
This is a good example of the tremendous amount of square footage that can be obtained by having a fully finished basement and adding square footage on the second floor. The basement and upstairs living space are much less per square foot than adding additional space on the main floor.
The home has three fireplaces, with the great room fireplace extending over 20 feet tall. The master bedroom and master bath suite have tall vaulted ceilings and are very open to each other with a minimum of doors. The master shower has some beautiful tile work and a full body spray and rain head shower. Two skylights make the closet bright and open. A small walkout deck off the master gives the owners a beautiful, private view. The master also features an opera balcony opening onto the great room below.
A cantilevered second floor catwalk overhangs the great room and is accessed by a beautiful handmade solid pine open tread stairway. Even the upstairs guest bedroom has a tongue and groove vaulted ceiling. Adding tongue and groove in place of drywall is a relatively inexpensive way of adding some rich detail. The guest bedrooms also feature bay windows and window benches with extra storage.
Features on the main level included a gourmet kitchen with the main cabinets finished with a glazed natural wood and the island finished in black. This contrast between island and the rest of the cabinetry is quite popular and really adds a wow factor to the kitchen. In addition, the dining room side of the kitchen peninsula was done in stacked rock to match the fireplace, another small detail that only adds a couple hundred dollars to the overall pricetag.
On the outside, a dramatic wall of windows opens up to a long range view. The windows were customer designed by Berg Mountain Homes to maximize the view and still allow for the open staircase on the inside directly behind the windows. A little bit of rockwork accents around the entrance door and along the garage as well as some fiber cement decorative shingles around the bay windows add some nice curb appeal. Last a huge three sided wrap around deck with an octagonal sitting area, private dining area and hot tub add tons of outside living space (a great feature up here in the mountains). A nice touch was glass panels in lieu of conventional handrails was added around the octagonal sitting area to maximize the great view. These only cost about $100 per panel.
