Quarry Mountain Residence - River Road, Steamboat Springs, Colorado

This is a Spec house designed for Habitat Design and Construction, a local contracting firm. The site is about twelve acres, suitable for horses, with terrific views of the ski mountain, the town and down valley. After trying several solutions, we struck the one that everyone loves.


The house is tucked into the hillside, which is fairly steep, with a two car garage on the main level and a single car garage below. There is a great room, with a massive stone fireplace, which opens to a dining space and then to the kitchen. All these spaces open to a stone walled terrace, have soaring ceilings, incredible views and lots of sun light. The master bedroom suite is more private and has a den to buffer it from the more public areas of the house.


Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a loft overlooking the areas below. For kids, we put in a playroom, over their bedrooms, which is accessed via a ship’s ladder. Downstairs, there is a family room and a guest bedroom suite.
