Description:

If living the quintessential Colorado dream is on your bucket list, look no further. This beautiful north-facing project of F9’s mountain residential series is nestled in scenic Black Hawk and is designed to reflect the cardinal directions. North-facing homes are often easier to keep cool when temperatures rise in the Rocky Mountain summers, an added perk you are sure to enjoy. The commitment to comfort continues with the addition of an innovative underground tunnel from the ADU/garage to the main residence’s lower level, sure to keep you warm in even the snowiest winter weather. Enjoy impressive vistas to the north as the downward slope on-site gives way to full panoramic views of the mountains. This property pushes structural limits with massive cantilevers at the main residence’s deck as well as both structural roofs. As the ADU will be built first, enjoy living on this picturesque property while the remainder of your dream home is under construction.

Both the main residence and the ADU are heated entirely with radiant in-floor tubing to maximize comfort and energy efficiency. Enjoy the fresh mountain breeze instead of relying on traditional air conditioning, as summers in the Colorado mountains are comfortable and any necessary cooling can be achieved by opening a few windows.

The construction will feature primarily wood framing with steel that allows for the addition of large cantilevers. Board-formed concrete will be used at the entry and a large portion of the lower level for a strong foundation with a refined finish that is pleasing on the eye.

The beautiful main level is comprised of two spacious bedrooms. The master suite features extensive views of the Rocky Mountains – perfect to enjoy any time of the day. In the main area, a floating fireplace acts as a separator between the living area and the kitchen/dining areas, making this the ideal home for hosting gatherings with loved ones and keeping conversation and good times flowing. A great guest space, the ADU is reminiscent of a studio apartment as it contains all the comforts of a living space, including a kitchen, murphy bed, mudroom and bathroom. The garage is attached to the ADU as well.

The lower level floor plan includes a walkout basement, allowing easy access to the outdoors, perfect for enjoying nature or letting pets outside. This also lets fresh air to flow easily through the lower level, making it a fresh and cheerful space for all. Additionally, a guest bedroom downstairs is a great space for kids or other guests, and a living area includes a large kitchenette for easy access to a snack or quick meal. The tunnel connecting the ADU/garage and the main residence also feeds into the lower level.
