This ultimate modern estate in the heart of Cherry Hills Village is the result of some serious collaboration between its owners and some of Colorado’s finest home design professionals.
The 10,070-square-feet, 4-bedroom, 7-bathroom home boasts breathtaking modern design, with a strong focus on emphasizing space, light, and extraordinary architectural elements—including a living flower wall.
“The front courtyard and entrance gallery are a stunning prelude to this masterpiece of contemporary design,” says the home’s listing broker, Linda Behr. “They embody the essence of the architect’s vision to create a seamless integration of indoor and outdoor spaces.”
The residence features an open ﬂoor plan with a seamless, organic ﬂow. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls invite year-round natural light, allowing the interior and exterior to complement each other in ways that shift with the seasons—creating a smooth transition from inside to outside.
The ultra-modern great room is an ideal gathering space for large-scale entertaining, inspiring a relaxed yet sophisticated experience for residents and guests.
Heated concrete ﬂoors and soaring cedar plank ceilings, accented with Douglas Fir beams, provide a luxurious warmth and inviting contrast to the rugged, Kansas limestone accent wall with ﬁreplace. Sliding glass paneled walls surround this extraordinary room, showcasing views of the property’s surrounding courtyards and water features.
Functional and artistic in nature, the residence’s kitchen was designed for culinary enthusiasts by Exquisite Kitchen Design and Premier Cabinetry.
A sleek, minimalist layout enhances the beauty of the custom cabinetry and natural stonework, with top-of-the line features including an expansive slab granite center island with breakfast bar, eating area with built-in seating, Miele stainless steel appliances, two convection ovens, a whole-bean coﬀee system, and a walk-in pantry.
The glass-infused dining room is a triumph of design and execution. The room feels aloft, as if hovering over the picturesque outdoor living spaces and terraces. Sliding ﬂoor-to-ceiling glass panels envelop the room, creating the ultimate indoor/outdoor experience, and a temperature-controlled wine cellar spans the entire length of the room.
A 12-person dining room table, custom designed by Boss Architecture, is accented by a unique Kyle Bunting hair-on-hide rug that reaches from the ﬂoor to the south-facing wall before touching the ceiling.
The home’s master suite is flooded with natural light, and offers clean and modern lines that blend with nature-inspired elements. An elegant, raised, walnut bed platform and ﬂoor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors frame the beauty of the outdoor surroundings. Equally impressive is the stunning, spa-like master bath that features separate vanities, heated limestone ﬂooring, natural stone, a steam shower, and a Japanese soaking tub. A dazzling walk-in closet with custom shelving and cabinetry made of natural wood complements the already ample and luxurious space.
Other over-the-top features of the home include a media room accessed by a descending floating walnut staircase that features a limestone wall, serving as the backdrop for a Planar video wall. The room also boasts a wet bar with custom cabinetry and Bronzite countertops, a European serving bar, and custom-built shelving, with an adjacent game room. The game room features a three-quarter bath and a ﬁtness room, and is located just steps away from the elegant guesthouse, pool, spa, and lower-level patio.
Perhaps the most impressive feature is a vibrant, living plant wall that adorns the outdoor terrace. Designed for year-around entertaining, the terrace’s moving glass walls eﬀortlessly merge this space with the interior of the home, and a soothing water feature ﬂows the length of the terrace before dramatically dropping to the patio below.
A covered outdoor patio, boasting views of the manicured landscape, continues the interior theme of limestone and cedar planked ceilings. This highly functional space is easily accessible from the kitchen and oﬀers an outdoor entertaining area with a ﬁreplace and wall-mounted television.
This customized outdoor oasis is an ideal space in which to dine, swim, read a book, or relax. Notable luxuries include a built-in ﬁre pit, accent lighting, an outdoor kitchen, an in-ground pool and spa, and an expansive patio.
An added unique feature of the home is a Zen-like retreat which boasts a private ﬂoating pavilion, providing an ideal place to meditate, relax, and reﬂect. The pavilion overlooks a rectilinear Koi pond, tall, native grasses and expansive gardens.
