Built 10 feet from the Roaring Fork River’s edge, the one-of-a-kind home RiveRoar offers privacy and tranquility in a setting of transcendent natural beauty. The spacious 3,298-square-foot, three-level home is a quintessential vacation residence that offers endless entertainment options in a perfect setting, where countless memories can be created. Kickback and enjoy nature at its finest in a modern home that can never be replicated, thanks to recent zoning laws, in Old Snowmass, Pitkin County, Colorado. It took careful planning and years of the combined expertise of award-winning architect David Johnston and his team to preserve the surrounding 75-foot evergreens while creating unobstructed sweeping river views from each room. The home boasts floor- to-ceiling window-walls, a main-level dining room with angled windows overlooking the river, chef-ready kitchen, and a cantilevered third story loft outfitted as a media and family room. Each floor brings the sights and sounds of the river into the elevated space, and evokes the feeling of being on a luxury yacht. The lower level includes the master bedroom suite, a chic in-home tequila bar, and a slate terrace with a fire pit – an ideal spot for evening martinis. Two additional bedrooms and baths await guests on the main level. An unusual 650-square-foot detached garage leaves ample room for cars and gear from skis to fly rods.
The limited riverfront parcels in the Snowmass area make properties with water views extremely valuable. RiveRoar’s phenomenal 200 feet of river frontage is even more rare, with building codes no longer allowing homes as close to the river as this. And there’s arguably no better way to enjoy the setting than on the 764-square-foot deck, that is like a platter serving you the most delightful view of bald eagles and blue heron. Ultimate care was given to situating RiveRoar like a glass treehouse perched as if it were a spacious aerie for humans – diaphanous and dream-like, allowing light to pass through the structure without being scattered to refract trees, water, sky.
The perfect mountain harmony makes RiveRoar the ideal vacation home or year-round residence. One of Aspen’s most iconic homes as recently featured in Aerin Lauder’s book, Aspen Style
