An oxymoron? Not this home. Every detail in this Colorado country contemporary is infused with classic beauty. Builder Markel Homes and architect Carl Rhode have teamed up to create a masterpiece in a setting out of a dream. Gracious and grand yet unique, rare and progressive, this exclusive Built Green® and Energy-Star® rated home avoids feeling gigantic or overpowering, choosing instead to surround you in comfortable elegance. Modern has blended with classic to create stunning on lot 5.

Expansive vertical glass runs the entire face of the home, overlooking the Continental Divide as it sweeps to either side of majestic Longs Peak—straight away from the barrel-vaulted front porch and stone entry. Stand in the library, formal dining room, second-story atrium bridge or master suite and enjoy breathtaking views. Dramatic ambiance tinged with natural vistas. The combination is priceless.

Visitors can’t stop meandering through the kitchen, with its leathered soapstone counters, curved glass breakfast bar, flush-panel red birch cabinetry, brushed stainless accents, split-faced slate backsplash and exceptional-grade appliances. Imagine reading beside the warmth of the red onyx and gunmetal fireplace in the vaulted library. You look up to see sun-kissed peaks and wonder if they’re from the pages of your book, or do you really live with these views every day of the year?!

Natural cherry woodwork, red birch flooring and custom metal ironwork all contribute to the Wow factor that repeats itself every time you turn the corner (and we haven’t even mentioned the open front-to-rear two-story atrium, luxurious master suite, expansive lower level or rear stone courtyard with fireplace).

Curious? Give us a call. Kent and Diane Zaitz / 303.444.7591. We’d love to show you what timeless contemporary looks like on a quiet cul-de-sac in serene Niwot Hills, located on the southern edge of Niwot Village, just 10 minutes from Boulder.
