A European Masterpiece in Bachelor Gulch
Tucked into the mountains of this prestigious Beaver Creek, Colorado neighborhood, spanning 1.59 acres of land, sits an elegant work of architecture that was three years in the making.
The 7-bedroom, 10-bathroom home was crafted from fine, thoughtful materials and is adorned with European antiques collected over a 10-year period.
The architecture is built around breathtaking, panoramic mountain views stretching from the Gore Range to Castle Peak.
Above the great room sprawl offered ceilings with over 40 layers of carved wood. The majority of the home's wood flooring is crafted from black walnut. The stairs are made from floating-slab limestone, each weighing more than a ton.
A barreled wood ceiling meets Venetian plaster walls for a dramatic hallway.
Not one, but two kitchens connect to the formal dining area and boast a La Cornue French stove with 16 burners and four ovens, as well as an authentic wood-burning pizza oven.
There are 18 stunning chandeliers throughout the home. Above the dining table hangs a 17th-century chandelier, originally from a Russian mosque.
In the master bedroom you'll find 18-foot coffered ceilings with 72 layers of carved wood, French antique chairs, and a pewter fireplace from the 1930s art deco era.
Carrera marble adorns the master bath, with thick 8-inch slabs shipped from Europe. A gorgeous Parisian chandelier hangs over the tub.
Above the master suite sits a cozy studio/loft area. There are a total of 8 fireplaces throughout the home.
This pink and white guest room (above) is decorated with memorabilia and antiques, including a decorative screen from Versailles and a 500-year-old Italian armoire.
In one of the powder rooms, Italian mosaic tiles and Moroccan tile add Mediterranean home elements.
The mountain home is built for entertaining, with a theater room, a ski room, and a 1,000-bottle wine cellar. Here, gold tray ceiling hovers over the billiards table in the game room.
An ample 2,800 square feet of terraces, patios, and decks take full advantage of the gorgeous views. The lower patio seats 18, perfect for barbecue and s'mores with friends and family.
Each bedroom has its own private terrace or balcony. This rooftop patio provides the feeling of sitting on top of the world.
