Evoking the sense of a charming bungalow, the one-story Firecrest pays tribute to a city that first served as a resort hamlet in the Rockies. Bidding welcome with an inviting front porch, stone accents and shingle details, this home exudes luxury and leisure.
Once inside, a long hallway leads past two private bedrooms, a shared bathroom and the French doors of an elegant study. Lending a little anticipation before its dramatic reveal, the hall opens to the main living spaces – unveiling a superlative plan for the family who loves to entertain. The designer kitchen with angled island offers the perfect vantagepoint to the dining and family rooms which flow seamlessly into one another, suggesting the notion of a grand hall. A gorgeous stone hearth holds the promise of countless nights spent before the glow of firelight.
A wall of energy-efficient windows creates a visual connectivity to the scenic backyard beyond. Living spaces are extended outdoors with a covered porch that showcases an outdoor kitchen, firepit and sitting area overlooking the pristinely landscaped backyard.

THE INTERIOR DESIGN
White and shades of gray enhance the sense of spaciousness in the one-story Firecrest. While backsplashes, shower surrounds, flooring and stacked stone add both visual and tactile interest. The use of natural and eco-friendly faux-natural materials suggest unity between the home’s interior and the world beyond its energy-efficient windows. The seamless flow between main living spaces is heightened by the use of wood flooring, while the sleeping quarters are “softened” by carpet.
The kitchen backsplash has the feel of old-world brick in pale gray porcelain set against smooth white quartz countertops and stainless-steel appliances. The overall story is pure, clean perfection. Both the kitchen island and corner hearth serve as dramatic memory points, interconnected through color and angled placement. Bathrooms also tell compelling stories through the use of crisp white tile juxtaposed against the gray textured mosaic backsplashes and dark wood cabinets. The overwhelming message here is immaculate luxury.
