The immaculate home located at 63 Hawn Dr. in the historic mining (and now resort) town of Frisco, CO can only be described as a suburban palatial lodge.
The home itself is a three story A-frame inspired residence with just over 2,900 square feet of geometrically efficient living and entertainment quarters on a sloped 5,700 square foot property.
It is removed from the busy main street area of Frisco, yet it situated in a high-end neighborhood with abundant views of the Rockies including the area’s most famous summits, Copper Mountain and Ten Mile Peak. This is a quiet location with everything expected from a premier Colorado residence.
This home is wonderfully tailored to blend in with the natural alpine surroundings. Winding driveways and sloped lawns cascade into a home that is built “up rather than out.” Unassuming, low-key siding and large windows reflect the natural beauty of the area. Wrap-around decking provides a maze of natural accent at every angle.
Overall Interior Appearance
This home is palatial because each turn inside reveals a room with unique character and endless possibilities for individual customizing. Except for the great room, the ceilings are not to lofty and designed with plain 90 degree wall angles that make each room look open and inviting.
The Great Room is like a five-star hotel comfort area with an extreme amount of coziness added. A large fireplace, golden hardwood flooring and trim, high vaults and an exceedingly sufficient amount of natural light composes one of the most alluring and comfortable spaces in this particular Alpine region.
Hardwood is a primary theme throughout the house except for bathrooms, where marble tile takes over. Many times, woodland lodge homes are dark and close. This home is bright, with huge windows, plain walls and golden, rather than brown wood accents.
Living Area Details
Beyond the attractive main living and relaxing spaces, kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms are next in line. The kitchen is a spacious wonderland of stainless steel appliances, golden hardwood cabinetry and perfectly contoured ebony stone counter tops.
Bathrooms, all three of them are roomy and have customized bathing areas with luxury tubs surrounded by earth-borne floor-to-ceiling tile. The ebony countertop motif is continued in each bathroom to some degree.
All four bedrooms include plush carpeting, huge closet spaces and romantic views of the surrounding mountainscape through huge windows.
Along with these main attraction rooms, there is also an exercise room, game room, theater, split level basement and utility room just waiting for an imaginative resident to take advantage of them in unique artistic and personal ways.
This is not the most expansive home in Frisco, but it is certainly one of the warmest and most versatile. It is just the right amount of rough woodland charm without being cliché, and full of open spaces completely falling within the realm of modernist styles. This is an aesthetically hybrid home with more well-designed space than indicated by its charming and conservative frontier-inspired exterior!
