Rendezvous Trails

Steamboat Springs, Colorado

This three level house was built on speculation and has many amenities including a three car garage, five bedrooms, five and a half baths, private outside hot tub area, open entry and a loft overlooking the great room views of the ski mountain and great views down valley, out to the Flattop Mountains.

 

The site has wonderful views while sloping north to south and has a small irregular building envelope. All of these factors helped dictate much of the physical layout of the house. Large wood beams and timber trusses support a wood ceiling in the kitchen, dining and great rooms. As the primary view of the ski area is to the southeast, those walls were filled with glass and kept much taller than other walls, resulting in an asymmetric design. A large three story chimney with fireplaces acts as a focal piece for the house. Lots of stone was used to lend visual interest to the exterior and anchor the house.

 

Mike Bell Construction and his crews worked to complete this beautiful house.
