Oh, the memories to be made in this Martis Camp home! The newly constructed 7,800-square-foot estate is a shining example of mountain architecture, but attentions will eventually drift to a vast, lively game room that spills out to a patio that’s every bit as impressive. The game room, stage left of the stunning great room that greets you upon entry, features a cozy bar and lounge with refrigerator and dishwasher. There’s a fireplace here, a big screen tv, bar stools and tables throughout, and the ever-present click of billiard balls and ping pong volleys in an atmosphere that stirs connections. Beyond is a patio with elevated bocce court, hot tub, fire pit lounge, and covered/heated dining, all of which bask in the glow of an immaculate outdoor lighting system. The two-bed, 1,200-square-foot guest cottage enjoys a front row ticket to this spirited scene. The main patio bends around to extend the full length of the home’s south-facing side with another firepit, outdoor covered/heated dining cove with built-in barbecue bay, and a pass-through window to the kitchen. Total square footage of the patios is 3,288, of which 1,789 is covered. The great room that greets you features a long, panoramic fireplace seated in a rock wall under towering ceilings with bold, arching beams. The nearby dining room, as well as the kitchen, share the same access to the patio as the great room. Beside the dining room is a glass-encased, 504-bottle wine vault while the kitchen overlooking the living space features a separate, full-sized pantry with butler’s kitchen. There’s a bedroom on this main floor, a downstairs with vault and storage, and a staircase leading to the primary guest suite wing with a bright, spacious office and a shower with dual heads at opposite ends of a lengthy bench. On the far side of the home beyond the great room, another custom staircase leads to three bedrooms with forest views.
Floors, cabinets, doors and trim are oak, countertops are neolith, cambria, Caesarstone, and sile stone, and the handsome ceiling is western red cedar. Appliances include a large Thermador refrigerator/freezer and Thermador dual range with hood. This 5-bed, 5-bath (two 1/2-bath) home, designed by Sandbox Studios and built by Heller Construction, is located a short walk from the Tennis Pavilion and Springs Pavilion, and a short drive to the Ski Lodge. It’s attention to detail and its emphasis on entertaining and connecting are part of what make it an ideal addition to the community that Forbes calls, “Possibly the best four-season community in the U.S.”
