This custom home began its life as a 1990s lakeside stucco home in Fort Collins that we stripped down to the studs and rebuilt new. The new included a 2,500 square foot addition to the 4,000 square foot main house designed as aging-in-place living quarters. This allows older parents to live comfortably in the same house but still have their privacy.
The home is full of custom features, including custom fabricated steel gutters and downspouts, Ipe shiplap siding, flooring from milled walnut and exposed square nails, beetle-kill pine soffits, open stair risers from urban-harvested walnut, and barn doors made from reclaimed bowling lanes. A two-story indoor waterfall drops gracefully and unexpectedly into a basement koi pond.
There’s plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors with an Ipe wood deck, custom outdoor kitchen and seating, hot tub, swim spa, and a wood and steel pergola to help block the late-day summer sun without interfering with the views of the lake.
