The Design team at Black Oak Homes set out to create a mix of mountain living and contemporary flair while showing off the latest advancements in function, materials and finishes. Natural stack-stone and rustic wood beams bring out the comfort of a vacation in the mountains. Neutral tones were chosen to allow for daylight to be amplified as it pours in from every direction. Wood floors, granite, husk stained cabinets with black glaze, pebble tile flooring. 

This floor plan makes entertaining a breeze. A chef’s kitchen, with island seating for six, opens to the living area. To bring the incredible views of Pikes Peak indoors, a wall of windows. To create a true mountain experience, incredible vaulted, rustic, beamed ceilings as well as a natural stone fireplace. To get away, personal space was not overlooked, spa-inspired master bath, kitchenette, private office which can be closed off with double barn doors.
