This stunning home sits on a beautiful ranch on top of a ridge in Eagle County. A complex timber post and beam system creates the structure of the main spaces and gives the inside a warm atmosphere.
An underground tunnel connects the main home to a guest suite built into an adjacent hillside. The guest suite was inspired by scenes from the Lord of the Rings featuring a wavy log roof and round entry door along with circular windows.
Towering over the extensive landscaping, which also includes a pool and in ground spa, is a university grade telescope with a retractable roof.
The size and complexity of the home was made more challenging by its extremely remote location.
If Pluto was on the mark, where better to look upwards than the crisp, clear Colorado mountain sky?
