Nature and design live in harmony in this modern, mountain estate. Perched on top of a Genesee peak, the features in this home were designed to accentuate the cascading Rocky Mountain views from nearly every window of this gorgeous property. Minimalism, clean lines, natural light, and modern furniture all work together to radiate a feeling of calm throughout the home.

A masterfully designed open-concept kitchen provides plenty of room for both food prep and entertaining guests. The hallways that lead you through the home double as galleries. Design elements like glass bricks and backlit walls make every turn artistic, which easily turns to productivity--especially with his-and-hers private offices. When you're finished with your workday, soak in your free-standing tub or your hot tub on the patio. Practice yoga in the ballet studio, or play piano in the atrium. Enjoy complete privacy nestled in 2.02 acres of Genessee forest. The estate's beauty and privacy are further enhanced by the property's adjacency to forested open space. Community life in Genesee is vibrant with well established hiking, biking, and skiing clubs as well as pools, pickleball and tennis courts. At 1733 Montane Drive, all of your daily activities are optimized with the finest elegance.

Renowned Colorado architect Michael Knorr designed this custom, 6 bedroom, 5.5 bath home in 1990. He also designed the revitalization project adding to his original vision, conforming to the mountainous topography. Prominent New York architect Claus Rademacher and Connecticut-based interior designer Elizabeth Brosnan Hourihan collaborated with Knorr to create a harmonious palette.

Vertical grain walnut materials grant the home a newfound warmth. The team's careful attention to detail results in design continuity throughout the property. Soothing colors, modern flair, and natural elements work seamlessly together. It's a unique home that has appeared in national design publications. The estate features an expansive 10,094 square feet of living space and 87,991 square feet of overall property.

Optimized Elegance

Enjoy dawn’s reflection on the Continental Divide in the morning and the marvelous light of the sun setting over the mountains in the evening. The sandstone and stucco exterior compliments snow capped mountain views. Glass balcony rails on the terrace are an elegant touch providing unobstructed views of the summits above and valleys below. Floor to ceiling windows throughout the home allow nature to be the primary focal point.

Gather up the household for piano concertos in the family room. Houseguests may enjoy a comfortable guest room in the main house or their own private space in the luxury pool house. Spectacular sunsets can also be enjoyed from the stainless steel hot tub.

Plant lovers will love the atrium. Twirl with joy in the ballet/yoga studio that's housed in the finished basement.
