Designed by renowned Denver architect Don Ruggles, this home is an architectural masterpiece. Sited to maximize sunlight and mountain views, this contemporary home features exterior brick, all-metal roof and oversized high-end windows from Germany. The attention to detail and craftsmanship throughout the home is unmatched. With 5 bedrooms and 10 baths, this custom-built home includes a 5-car garage, heated pool and hot tub, cabana, indoor basketball court, home theater and so much more, on over 2 lush acres in Cherry Hills Village.
Despite its grand size, this 12,000 square foot plus home perfectly balances impressive scale with intimate and inviting spaces. Indoors and out, the home offers endless entertaining options. Throughout the home, Control 4 smart technology allows access to and control of everything from climate, media, sound, window treatments, and security. The Designs by Sundown landscape features native plantings and countless pine trees and aspens, all designed to ensure privacy and to complement the home’s architecture and outdoor entertainment space.
Upon entering the handcrafted Brazilian Cherry front door with stainless steel inlay, it’s evident that no detail was overlooked. Follow the gentle curve of the main entrance hall to the dramatic two-story Great Room. The floor-to-ceiling sandstone-clad fireplace features a custom walnut mantle, a handsome counterpart to the walnut media wall with a built-in fish tank. Dramatic oversized windows overlook the large front porch and private front lawn bordered by pine trees. A large Study shares the fish tank and features custom walnut cabinetry with granite tops.
At the heart of the home, off the Great Room, sits the dramatic three-story open staircase with custom steel and Brazilian Cherry railing. Oversized windows frame the oval spiral staircase, welcoming endless natural light and a view of the pool and rear patio.
Just off the Great Room and sharing the pass-through fireplace is the Gourmet Kitchen where no amenity is overlooked. An impressive large center island offers raised breakfast bar seating, granite prep, and utility sinks with dedicated water to ensure immediate hot water. Modern in profile, the Belmont soft-close Brazilian Cherry cabinetry has storage for everything and granite tops. Viking, Subzero and Miele appliances meet every culinary professional’s need. A dramatic window bay offers generous eat-in space, and features a custom handblown glass light fixture by LumenArt to complement the island pendants. Just off the Kitchen is a dumbwaiter for easy service to the basement and second floor, and a walk-in butler’s pantry outfitted with custom walnut storage and a Subzero wine fridge.
The Formal Dining Room balances intimacy and elegance. A custom oval dining table by Berman Rosetti of Los Angeles was built using Pau Ferro wood with Java Walnut trim to fit the exact scale and proportion of the room that also features three custom built-in hutches and custom Donghia drapery. Two contemporary style Swarovski chandeliers add brilliance to the room.
Follow the grand staircase to the upstairs hallway overlooking the Great Room. Situated for privacy and quiet, the Master Suite features a wall of windows and access to an outdoor deck with enviable views of the Rocky Mountains. The vaulted ceiling is grounded by a grand fireplace flanked by custom built-in bookcases. Like the rest of the home, the room’s scale is designed to perfectly balance size and intimacy.
The Master Bath is a Zen oasis, with every spa amenity and luxury finishes, from Ann Sacks tile and Silestone to his and her vanities with Ronbow sinks. Oversized walk-in shower includes two showerheads, body wand, steam shower and surround sound. A gracious tiled alcove frames the large jetted tub. Just off the bath is a substantial master closet, with a 10-foot ceiling, custom walnut built-in center dresser and benches, and a separate formal closet. Closets throughout the home are all custom finished by Closet Works.
Situated in the opposite upstairs wing are three oversized ensuite bedrooms with generous walk-in closets and a large laundry room. Each of the three baths features Ann Sacks tile and marble, steam showers, premium fixtures. The front bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and a private deck with mountain views. An upstairs alcove includes a charming “pajama pit” with built-in seating, custom cushions, and media center. A large guest suite opposite the first-floor study serves as an additional bedroom/office and includes a generous luxury bathroom and large walk-in closet.
The Lower Level exceeds expectations, satisfying every recreational and entertaining need. The Overlook Room is the “fun hub,” with a secondary entertainer’s kitchen, fireplace, and 3/8” glass wall overlooking the two-story basketball court with all-maple flooring and Porter gym mat walls. Includes his and her locker rooms, each with a half-bath, plus an additional glass-walled cycle or dance studio. An oversized exercise room also overlooks the court and is served by a spa-sized bath with oversized steam shower room. The home theater features cinema seating for six, Dolby surround sound, an overhead projector, and a 100-inch screen. A separate game room, outfitted with custom built-in banquettes and storage, features a second fish tank and complete surround sound media service.
