A Match Made in Monument




Because the Stingleys entertain frequently, they wanted a kitchen with several places for guests to gather (the space adjoins the great room).

Overall, the Bulthaup kitchen is clean-lined without feeling sterile.

Few design events find the major players all on the same page as the project unfolds. After all, the architect might have a vision that's terrific on paper but a nightmare in the hands of the subcontractors. The designer's ideas might drive an interior design that doesn't jibe with the architecture. And the homeowners might change their minds every time a nail is driven or paint dries.

But this stunning home in Monument was a match made in heaven for everyone involved. “The Stingleys were wonderful to work with,” says Sears Barrett, principal of Sears Barrett Architects in Englewood. “Mary Wilson, the designer (Nielsen-Wilson Design LLC), worked with architectural cues to create an interior that is married to the exterior. And Phil Goetzmann (of Goetzmann Custom Homes) reported that his crew loved the challenge of doing something different from the typical mountain vernacular.

Looking towards Pikes Peak, the great room's arc of windows is protected from afternoon sun by an extended roof overhang.
