About the owner: I found this mountain hideway while hunting for a location to build a wood/furniture shop in the Winter Park area. Looking for some space and some quiet amongst the trees - with the wildlife; I knew this was going to be the spot as soon as I headed up the driveway for the first time. I am an engineer by education and moved to Colorado in 1982 and to Winter Park in 1997 and started Winter Park Construction Company, a design/build firm still operating out of the Grand County area. On the property originally was a 1400 sq ft cabin with views next to none!. As someone that has mountaineered all over Colorado, I new this first hand. In 2007, a 2500 sq ft addition was added to the property. The addition, which was designed using many mountain contempary theme, features construction, architectural and engineering techniques acquired over the previous years of the designer's life. The love of the mountains and the friendly folks here in Grand County made this not only a place to call home but a has made it a wonderful life experience as well. As a result of a career change, I found myself having to share this home and its many pleasures with kind folks like you! I sincerely hope you enjoy it as much as so many others over the years. I look forward to your comments following you visit.
Why the Owner Chose Tabernash: Summer, spring, winter and fall! Sound like a song you know? This home and Grand County is quite a wonderful place. Yeah, there may be more glitz at some of the other resort towns one can visit, but for all around adventure, family fun and quality of life we know of no other place that compares. When we first 'retired' from our desk jobs (yeah - no more city life) we knew that the Winter Park area was in our sights. Personally, I had built several homes in the area for folks and through them and the community I knew this would be a place to find and build a mountain dream home. When I first walked out onto the deck overlooking the valley I was breathless and knew that this was the place for building our family's memories, and it still is! Powder skiing, boating, mountain biking, hiking, sledding and just the plain outdoors is what makes this place truly amazing - let alone the locals and the close relationships we develop helping each other out.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: The view up here on top of our granite monolith at 9100 ft elevation is quite amazing! As a musician, this place is magical in a creative way. Many things can make one feel like life is taking a turn for the worse but with a glass of wine and a little time that can all be put back into perspective when looking out on top of the pristine world to the south. The view alone can stimulate minds into creativity - so sit back, relax and enjoy. The home brings the out of doors right into the chair beside you. Many features make one's visit memorable. We will let you choose! Also, with many 'green' features and a passive solar heating design, comfort is next to none - even when temps fall during the winter months. The home is designed to bring the outdoors into the living room. Practically every feature was designed and crafted on sight. Many of the materials used are 'recycled'. Old barn siding from Steamboat Springs, old boat dock materials from Grand Lake, old deck materials recycled during our many different local projects, fireplace mantels and structural timbers from the property - the list goes on. We also highlight a mountain, contemporary, industrial theme throughout with timber construction techniques, brushed steel counter surfaces, a magnificent steel framed window curtain wall with a touch of exposed mechanical and electrical features. There are many unique design and construction features in our home and we will keep adding in the future. Come, enjoy and let the imagination run wild!
