4530 Governors Point, Colorado Springs,
Influenced by iconic Craftsman style homes, this dignified estate sits beneath the steep slope of Cheyenne Mountain with views of the mountain and the city lights from upstairs. The home is in a stunning geologic setting. Granite sourced from the mountain creates the foundation, which gives way to brick walls. The brick, hand-cast in wood forms, is one of many handmade materials used on the home to connect the setting's raw beauty with human warmth and ingenuity .Completed in 2004, the home's 7 bedrooms, 12 baths & 8 fireplaces showcase work of renowned craftsmen across the country and around the world. At the home's entrance, one is greeted by a grand, redwood timber Porte-cohere, inviting one into this magnificent home.
