A Colorado Home Built Around its Water Features
This 10,900-square-foot mountain home—perched on Red Sky Ranch and Golf Club, just half an hour away from Vail in Wolcott, Colorado—boasts quite the repertoire of luxurious features.
In addition to its six bedrooms, eight full bathrooms (and two half baths), a three-car garage, library, wine cellar, butler’s pantry, bar, a bunkroom, and spacious decks and outdoor spaces to soak in views of the golf course views and Game Creek Bowl and Wolcott Valley—it elaborately incorporates an almost fairy-tale water feature throughout its landscape.
The waterfall begins at the top of a stack of rocks, and runs down under the home’s suspended bridge and also beside the hearth room’s outdoor living space.
It’s safe to say that that this re-circulated babbling brook is the bow strung around an exquisite gift—fulfilling the homeowners’ desire to create a haven of Zen and luxury.
In fact, the cylindrical component built into the home serves as a meditation room—inspired by a spa trip to Arizona—complete with a skylight that aligns with the sun on the summer solstice.
Windsong, a bronze fountain sculpture crafted by Colorado artist Lincoln Fox, sits in the pool next to the meditation room’s exterior and directly across from the outdoor kitchen and dining area.
The home and its landscape serve as testimony that a gorgeous mountain home can be taken to next-level luxury with water features—especially in a state where water is hard to come by.
