Nestled amongst the aspens on a ski-in, ski-out property in Vail, the Rockledge Residence is a gem of contemporary architecture. This five bed, seven bath home strikes the right balance between a stately presence and being perfectly in tune with the mountains. A butterfly roof, European windows with expansive glass, a cantilevered dining room, and multiple fantastic exterior decks all capture different angles on the best views of Vail. Inside, unwind with a spa and massage room, a hot tub, a wine room, an in-home gym, a game room, and a custom two-sided fireplace with blackened steel, bluestone, and a custom contemporary metal log set. In the master suite, a stainless-steel television wall makes the inclusion of technology a work of art. An elegant custom staircase, with six-inch thick glass treads, steel stringers, stainless-steel handrails, and wire cable details connects the levels, with an elevator also available. Outside, a beautiful contemporary art sculpture complements the exterior cement panels with quarter-inch reveal. This tight site had no drain easements for construction, but the project was completed successful by maintaining access to the site through the eastern neighboring property. The client’s good relationship with their neighbors was maintained through communication, communication, communication at every turn, and now the Rockledge Residence is an elegant, semi-secluded retreat.
