Mountain Living Magazine Feature: September 2012
Summit County Parade of Homes Awards Gala
Summit County, Colorado
September 21, 2012
For the fourth consecutive year, Mountain Living was proud to sponsor this year’s Summit County Builders Association’s Summit County Parade of Homes, an annual showcase of high-country homes located in beautiful Summit County, Colorado.
On Friday, September 21, 2012, local residents and design-industry insiders joined Mountain Living at the Silverthorne Pavilion to celebrate the best design on display on this year’s tour. We were pleased to present our Peak Award for “Best in Show” to Tim Scanlan and Mike Hurley of Raptor Construction for their team’s work on the spectacular home at 1246 Bald Eagle Road. Congratulations from all of us at Mountain Living!
The Castline Residence was built with both budget and family living in mind, with ample thought placed into creating intimate and practical spaces. The Intention was to merge a vintage feel with new style, along with a rustic yet urban refined feel. The owners are appreciative of the great collaboration they shared with the builders, architect and every subcontractor on the project.
As you approach the property along a series of switchbacks, varying roof lines along with a blend of wood, stone and steel present an inviting appearance.
The main level is open and appealing, with reclaimed hardwood flooring and a soaring, weathered fireplace that defines both the kitchen and living room, while giving warmth to the dining nook, foyer and loft above.
The upscale kitchen, with aged white custom cabinetry, black soapstone counter tops and stainless steel appliances, also has a fun chalkboard door that leads into a nearby butler pantry. A custom built-in bench in the casual dining nook allows two or twelve to sit comfortably around the large farmhouse table. Creatively re-used materials on the ceiling in the dining nook and foyer tie the rustic exterior to these interior spaces. The cozy living room perfectly frames the Gore Range views, while large Dutch doors lead to the wraparound porch, where there is abundant wildlife viewing in the adjacent open space.
Designed with a new family in mind, the second level houses a loft, children’s rooms that share a vintage Jack-n-Jill bathroom, and extensive travertine tile work along with a double slipper pedestal tub in the master bath.
The lower walk-out level is wide open, with room for kids to play, a guest suite and a bar for entertaining. French doors lead to an expansive flagstone patio with hot tub and a yard that backs to the Angler Mountain Ranch open space and trails. Throughout the home, a vintage impression is merged with new style to create a refined, rustic feel.
