This home was built with family living in mind. There was ample thought given when creating the intimate spaces throughout this home. The owners are appreciative of the great collaboration between the builder, the designers, and every subcontractor on this project. The main level is appealing because of its open layout and use of architectural details, and let’s not forget the amazing views of Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak! The upscale kitchen, with dark cabinetry, quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances, it also has a casual dining area that allows up to 12 to sit comfortably around the large farmhouse table. Creatively used timber-trusses on the ceiling in the main living area tie the rustic exterior to these interior spaces. The spacious master bedroom perfectly frames the amazing views, while a large double-slider door leads out to the covered patio with views of breathtaking scenery, which an abundance of wildlife call home. The surprises in this home come in the lighting details, the circular shower in the master bathroom, the tile details throughout. These pops of brilliance keep things fresh and fun. Designed with a large family in mind, the second level houses a library with a secret cigar room, which make it obvious that this family like to relax and entertain. In addition it boasts an over-sized guest bedroom. The lower walk-out level is wide open, with room to entertain, a wet-bar, and barn-doors that lead to an expansive theatre room with its own snack bar. The lower level also houses two additional bedrooms, one of which Custom-built bunk beds that serve as a great way to save space, and add charm. The Dutch-door under the stairs leads to child’s own hideaway. Throughout the home, an eclectic impression is merged with new style to create a refined, rustic feel.

About the Interior Design of the Home:
The Velvet Hammer was built with soon to be empty nesters in mind who want single floor living, glorious Colorado views and plenty of room for the kids and future grandchildren to visit. The main level was designed to be both elegant and welcoming with its open design, soaring timber-trussed ceilings and amazing mountain views. The upscale kitchen, casual dining area with its large farmhouse table and ready access to the covered deck makes this level perfect for both entertaining and daily living. The cozy master bedroom with its stunning custom circular shower complete the stylish yet practical layout. The upper level is highlighted by a classic “gentleman’s library” boasting custom shelving, a built in humidor, a secret hideaway room and private balcony. The lower walk-out level is wide open and designed to entertain all ages. Amenities include an under-stair hideaway, wet-bar, an expansive theater room and two additional guest rooms.
