The presence of the river and the mountains are pervasive from this contemporary ''riverfront masterpiece'' designed by David Johnston Architects sitting on the bank of the Roaring Fork River on 19+ acres in Snowmass Canyon. Open spaces and walls of glass blur indoor from outdoor living. The stone entry extends through the house to the back patio connecting the home to the backyard and the river. Spanish cedar, limestone and zinc adorn the exterior, while spacious, light and airy living spaces are accented by cherry wood ceiling panels, bamboo & stained concrete flooring, and a limestone fireplace. A 100+ bottle glass wine display illuminates the dining room.Overlooking the river, the private main level master suite features curved glu-lam beams with inlayed bamboo, a gas fireplace, spa bathroom and large walk-in closet. Interior designer Elizabeth Holway said, "You can sit in the tub and feel like you're sitting next to the water". A "functional sculpture" single-stringer steel staircase leads to the upper level guest master suite, two en suite guest bedrooms, and a loft office. Five gas fireplaces warm the home with automatic shades and control lighting throughout. Radiant heat and central A/C ensure the ideal temperature. A 3-car garage with tempered glass doors provides plenty of storage. The lower level theater room with a full bath is the perfect place to watch your favorite movies. Dine al fresco on the covered back patio with built-in BBQ and fireplace with Triangle Peak and Snowmass Canyon's red rock landscape as your backdrop. Close to Aspen, Snowmass and Basalt, this is a biking and fly-fishing retreat with 425+ feet of Roaring Fork River frontage and direct access to the Rio Grande Trail. This magnificent home and setting so close to the river cannot be recreated today!
