Description

Look for the gravel drive at the 12 o'clock position in the cul-de-sac and follow it "slowly driving" to absorb the wooded area ultimately placing you before a natural "attraction" and wonderful work of art/architecture by William Trout, a Colorado contemporary retreat on 4. 73 acres with rippling fountain sounds of the acre pond as seen from the lower level living and dining areas and bedroom suites on the second floor. EXPAND THE PICTURES. Kitchen is spacious/the great room offers a gas fireplace, a 2 story atrium DR offers the splendor of the woods. Upper level offers a sitting area, two baths and laundry. An additional very large out building with electricity, and a 30 x 60 motor coach pad with 50amp service is available. To truly appreciate this home you need to realize some elements of the architect William Trout. Trout juxtaposed wood horizontally, vertically and diagonally to create visual excitement, using bright fabrics against natural wood, and gives his designs evocative names like Rainflower, Songbird, Wildflute. Signature elements included Plexiglas bubble windows or skylights in the exterior walls or ceilings to bring in natural light and inspiring views. A home, Trout believed, should bring people together, not isolate them from one another. The kitchen belonged in the heart of the house. "I want visitors to immediately understand that this is a very warm and inviting kind of home -- a nice place to just sit and have conversation or a quiet moment."
