Luxury Real Estate Headlines: Last Week in July 2018

Highlights from this week’s top news stories on luxury and global real estate, art, collectibles and home.


Telluride, Colorado | Bill Fandel, Telluride Sotheby’s International Realty

“Sitting on a 35-acre parcel just outside Telluride, Colorado, the home is a whopping 6,561 square feet and comprises ten interconnected pavilions, resembling more of a backwoods cul-de-sac than one residence. “


Designed by the internationally-renowned architectural firm of Hugh Newell Jacobsen, this iconic property represents one of the rarest offerings in all the Rocky Mountains. Occupying a story-book setting in the mountains just outside Telluride, Colorado one discovers a residence compromised of ten-interlocking pavilions designed by Simon and Hugh Jacobsen. Carefully situated on a 35-acre estate parcel in the ultra-exclusive enclave of Gray Head, the home occupies a sun-drenched saddle offering breath-taking views of the surrounding 14,000-foot peaks. The residence is a wonderful combination of quarried limestone, glass, steel & native stone. Clean & sophisticated vaulted interiors were perfectly executed to savor the natural light and act as the ultimate backdrop for a carefully curated art collection. Nested around a circular motor court, the home’s dramatic spaces are warm & accommodating with walls of glass framing the staggering views of the surrounding meadows & mountains. A sophisticated series of environmental systems efficiently monitor and adjust for solar and air temperature changes for each pavilion and space, while the house employs radiant “air conditioned floors” to maintain the perfect interior climate.
