Contemporary design meets traditional mountain architecture in perfect harmony in this Steamboat Springs, Colorado property. Designed by architect Bill Rangitsch, this home exemplifies the style and vision of a great artist. As you cross the covered bridge entry, the quality of woodwork, chief cliff stone and well-manicured landscaping set the stage for an exciting experience. Through the front door you are greeted by the first of many architectural elements, a steel floating staircase. The high ceilings draw your attention to the main living area, where design elements and views are endless. Scanning the great room, your eyes move from the large dry stack fireplace to the full wall of great room windows showcases the outdoor splendor of Elkins Meadow.

Turning back from the view, the chefs kitchen boasts a well-chosen selection of custom cabinets, granite and wood counter tops and high end appliances. With a dining room just off the kitchen, dinners come with a full serving of mountain and valley views. Opening the double doors in the dining room reveals the covered outdoor fireplace and sitting area. Situated with southern exposure, this deck is the ideal evening location for watching sunsets and alpenglow on the Flat Tops. With six bedrooms, five full bathrooms and two half bathrooms, there is room for everyone. The master bedroom sits in its own private wing, with a balcony overlooking the open space, Fish Creek canyon and the ski mountain. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by The Paoli Group]
