Commanding an outstanding 270-degree view from Bachelor Gulch in Beaver Creek, the Modern Mountain Log residence is a stunning fantasy brought to life. Inspired by National Park watchtowers, it’s designed to take full advantage of all seasons with five walls that open completely to the elements. Outdoor living is made magical by a pool-sized spa, a barbecue pit, and spacious cantilevered decks that oversee both the incredible views and the moat-like water feature that cradles the home. A bridge leading to the front door, as well as two others, allow multiple perspectives on the water feature that includes several cascading waterfalls and a stone path to a hidden stone door that leads to the wine cellar. Montana glacier granite and Colorado moss rock form the base of the home and water feature, complemented by imposing log ascents.
Inside, five distinctly crafted fireplaces give the home multiple classic places to gather. The master bedroom’s fireplace is an elegant modern take, with gorgeous tile that brings out the richness of the wood-paneled walls and extensive windows. A powder room echoes the exterior with an enormous slab of glacier granite turned into a sink, suspended from the reinforced wall by steel brackets. Two dynamic kitchens are crafted to make the most of entertaining through bar seating, with one kitchen featuring a brick pizza oven. Hallways with custom recessed lighting lining the inset ceilings and soft nighttime lighting at floor level makes traveling from room to room an experience in and of itself. The home also features a ski room, a steam room, an exercise room, and two home theater rooms. An incredible caramel onyx bar that is lit from inside an Lucite frame is a true show-stopper in the home.
