Unlike any other in Cathedral Pines, this harmony of Colorado’s natural elements with contemporary global sophistication paradoxically embraces the quiet of the forest with both style and substance. Four bedrooms, six bathrooms, an oversized garage, a giant poured concrete rear deck and straight on Pikes Peak Views are just the beginning of a home with a dizzying array of detail. The chef’s kitchen is perfectly-designed for the at-home chef with two triangles, double Viking Ovens, Viking Microwave, Six-Burner with Grill Viking Range, Subzero Cabinet furniture with twin chest freezers, outside-ducted hood, custom alder cabinetry, three kinds of ornate tile in backsplash and fantastic 5mm granite slab counters. All of this enjoys seating for six at just the bar with a 6 to 8 person space in the nook, and fantastic view of Pikes Peak across the yard. The master bedroom retreat has a private walkout, atrium windows for additional light, elegant sconce, rope and chandelier lighting and a master suite that must be experienced firsthand to completely appreciate. Both the bedroom and the bathroom have their own vertical Napoleon fireplaces to establish warming ambience. The master bath alone has it’s own character with slab-faced dark-stained cabinets, quartz cabinets, heated flooring, large steam shower with poured concrete bench and basin and multiple heads, abundant counter space with split vanities and a large walk-in that has it’s own matching furniture. The large dining room has a custom-built gridded halogen light fixture suspended from the ceiling and built-in travertine tile curios. The living room has floor to ceiling built-in with a cast concrete Napoleon gas fireplace, a walkout, and is the gorgeous backdrop for fine furnishings. The main level office has built-in floor-to-ceiling shelving as well as a wall of furniture. Even the laundry room is purposed around making life both elegant and easy with it’s own cabinetry, ample counter space and abundant storage. Three secondary bedrooms are found with one on the main level on the side opposite the master and two more on either side of the basement. All have at least 10′ ceilings with large walk-in closets and their own attached private bath trimmed to match the rest of the house with unique tile, custom granite work and premium lighting and faucets. Winding down the serpentine stairs with it’s own motion-activated lighting to the basement the detail continues. Hardly a second-space, the basement’s sophistication is the equal of the main. The stairwell is trimmed in an ornamented walnut planked fencing arrangement, artistic detail for the sake of detail. Opposite that are bookshelves with a secret passage to a large underground game room. The game room has TV mounts and a poured concrete floor giving it a variety of future applications. The basement recreation room has two giant spaces, a big game space (billiards, air hockey) and another that is the basement lounge, complete with it’s own Napoleon Fireplace. The wet bar is similar to the sophisticated master bath with dark cabinets. It add it’s own charming details with stained concrete floors and leather-textured granite counters. The basement media room has it’s own raised bar vanity and is 22′ in length with a staggered pour to the concrete floor to create a stadium effect. Multiple channels of built-in surround amplify the experience and a variety of lighting settings can be realized with the Control 4 whole-house automation. This whole-house automation is accessed through a variety of LCD panels (entry, mud room, kitchen, master, basement, media) or through your smart phone. This powers everything from your cultivated playlists to the temperature of the home to the lighting to the security networked for the home. Finishing off the fantastic construction is a mechanical room with exceptionally efficient water heater and twin furnaces. A panic room is recessed into the mechanic room underneath the front entry. Stretching out over 6200 square feet, this home enjoys a professionally-mitigated lot of 2.51 acres in the jewel of the north, Cathedral Pines. With trails, water features and shared-neighbor access into Black Forest Regional Park, civilized takes on a whole new character.
