Our Opinion: Often, it’s through contrast that we discover the beauty of something. Contrast gives meaning. It defines an object’s quality relative to something else. What would pleasure be without pain? Light without the dark? Donny without Marie? In our natural world, the contrast between modern architecture and its surroundings can be a tricky relationship, but sometimes, we find those architects (and projects) who have managed to nail the balance beautifully. At 11242 S Eagle View Drive, it would seem that Mother Nature and Ultra Modern are having a love affair. And who can blame them? The balance struck between the linear lines of the property and the curvaceous East Bench is enough to make anyone swoon. You may remember this dazzling ingot from its feature as a Place of Worship. Built in 1996, the ode to International Style sits proudly on nearly an acre of land just 20 minutes from world-class skiing and boasts some of the valley’s most commanding views. Recently remodeled to be more contemporary and functional, every last surface has been redone, all lights replaced with new LED bulbs, and all bathrooms are brand spanking new. The en suite main bath has been opened up to more fully allow natural light and to make the space more practical. The kitchen has been wholly revamped, and is now replete with commercial-grade appliances by SubZero/Wolf, and a kitchen sink and faucet by Franke. Clean cabinetry perfectly complements the quartz waterfall island. Among our favorite features is the brand new, main-level flooring–a dark, hand-scraped European Oak that is as sexy as it is durable. High-end fixtures by Graff in the bathrooms, and wall hung lavatories and bidets by Duravit. The lower level–as spacious and clean as the upper–comes with its own wet bar and plenty of room for entertaining, with a walkout entrance to the grounds. If you’ve ever yearned for a modern space that’s as connected to nature as we are to the city, then it is time to call this house “home”.
