Upper Chiming Bells Residence | Avon, CO

The design of this contemporary, 6 bedroom, 8,500 SF home in the Mountain Star Community of the Vail Valley evolved out of an intense design charette with the owner based on the unique challenges and opportunities of the site.

High performance floor to ceiling thermally broken triple glazed steel windows and large lift and slide doors open the home up to panoramic views from Bachelor Gulch to Castle Peak. A large double kitchen designed to operate when just the owners are in residence and to expand for frequent large family gatherings and communal cooking was the focal point around which the main floor living spaces were arranged. The kitchen, breakfast nook and family sitting areas flow out to a large covered outdoor deck with spectacular views and a custom firepit. An expansive lower level patio creates a variety of opporunities for family gathering with a custom pool/hot tub and secondary firepit area.
