Vallicito Reservoir Log Home | by Boulder, Colorado Architects – Fanas Architecture

Perched on the edge of Lake Vallecito in southwest Colorado, this timber, log and stone home captures 180 degree views of land, lake and sky. The mountain detailing and materials include wrought iron railings, large stone fireplaces with timber mantles, and eat-in kitchen that seats 12, rough-hewn wood flooring, vaulted ceilings with log and timber trusses, and an enormous picture window in the great room that creates the feeling of hanging out over the edge of the cliff that the house is built into. Our architects designed the large custom circular stairway to connect all three floors of the home and integrated hand carved timber sculptures of local wildlife into the design. Flow from the inside of the home to the outside living areas is achieved on all levels with large sliding doors that open onto multiple balconies, and a large stone patio complete with fire-pit, wet bar and water feature.
