Contemporary Mountain Log Home
Near Telluride, CO
4,000 sq. ft.
Located a short drive from Telluride, this grand house blends into the mountainous surroundings on the former ranch land that it now occupies.
This residence is designed to accommodate a large, extended family, from young children to grandparents. The house utilizes logs in the main living level as structural posts and beams, allowing one of the most dramatic views of the region to penetrate the living space. Bedrooms are distributed to various wings or zones of the house, allowing family members or guests to have private quarters. A bridge connects the house to the Bunk House/Garage, which can house numerous grandchildren with separate boys’ and girls’ bunk rooms. The bridge itself provides a play area. In addition to a spacious great room, an intimate log den, with a stone fireplace allows for evening winter coziness. The master suite is within its own wing. The lower level contains a large recreation room with a sunken media area. This daylight room leads to a stone terrace with a hot tub, opening to views of one of the most magnificent mountains of the region. Hints of southwestern style are integrated into the finishes, including thick rounded traditional Sante Fe plaster and traditional twig “latilla” ceilings. In all there are six bedrooms, and the overall house is approximately 8500 square feet.
