Location: Edwards, Colorado
Renowned German-born architect Annabelle Selldorf, designer of many a residential high-rises, private and public institutions in New York City (where her office is based) and around the world, also has some pretty swell private homes in her portfolio. One of them, the Walden House, located 15 miles west of famous Colorado ski resort Vail, is a roughly 12,000 square foot retreat built primarily from local materials (including log-pole siding, beetle kill pine wood, field rock, and copper) and featuring a fantastic connection to the outdoors.
Beyond sweeping mountain views framed by expansive glass windows, the home, essentially a series of smaller glassy volumes, also wraps around a landscaped courtyard. The main living areas, in fact, open directly to the ultra Zen space. The breezy 2009-built property comprises seven bedrooms, and nine-and-half baths in the main house, plus a gym, barn, separate 1,354-square-foot caretaker's unit, chicken coop, and greenhouse.
