The ambiance of the home is inviting and unassuming creating a sense of serenity the moment you step in. Unlike many other houses the master suite kids’ bedrooms with bunk beds and guest rooms occupy the lower level of the residence while the top two floors hold the public spaces. This was done to ensure that the living areas got the best possible views while the bedrooms combined a smart blend of privacy and openness.
The ideal house is no longer just four cinderblock walls covered with a water-repellent roof; instead it has become a living establishment that blends itself into nature becoming a part of a grander scale of beauty.

The lowest floor is the Ski Room where there are lockers a powder room a wall of ski-boot warmers and a small enclosed ski repair room tucked in the corner where you can hone and wax your skis near the Guest Laundry Room. From this lower level you can ski directly onto the slopes.
The loft’s bedroom is enclosed yet open creating a cozy feel while maintaining the light and airy vibe of the overall home. A hanging mobile featuring an assortment of circles adds an interesting visual element helping to define the bedroom as its own unique space…

Large glass windows and walls define the façade of the house that has been structured to showcase the pool and outdoor living area as the focal point of the design. Designed by Minarc a spacious interior that is refreshingly airy and open complements this outdoor dining and deck area perfectly.
