As you approach this Martis Camp home, you may detect a drum roll of sorts. It’s a sense of anticipation you could attribute to the entrance itself — a modernly handsome, low-slung exterior of metal and wood. Then again, it could be the bridge just steps before the massive front door, the bridge traversing an attractive display of mountain vegetation, flowers and rock stream bed. Chances are, however, that the suspense you feel is related to what you’ve already glimpsed on the flip side of the home — a massive deck with views that are even more massive. The gravity of this scene draws you past a stunning great room with its large rock wall and fireplace. The pocket glass doors of this room’s north wall — the one adjoining the deck — completely disappear, leaving the indoors and outdoors to mingle among themselves. It’s ideal for parties as well as for those quieter moments where televisions are no match for nature. The kitchen, dining room and great room all share this same view of Martis Valley. The deck features 180º views, a covered/heated dining area, firepit, and built-in barbecue. The master bedroom with fireplace, deck and ornate bathroom are on the east end of this main level while the other wing features a guest master with its own private veranda. The staircase leads down to a media room with its own patio and jacuzzi. There are two bedrooms here as well as an oversized bunkroom and access to the jacuzzi at the edge of the forest.
Not far from Martis Camp’s private ski lodge, this 5,245-square-foot, 5-bed/5.5 bath home is beautifully landscaped. In the kitchen, you’ll find Wolf, Bosch and Sub-Zero appliances as well as an expansive quartz counter overlooking the dining room and great room. Cabinets, doors and trim are alder, ceilings are cedar and floors are predominantly white oak with limestone in the master bath.
There’s an abundance of light gracing the kitchen and great room and the dining room is nicely positioned for sunsets and night skies.
