Modern Home in the Mountains

A polished concrete driveway sets the tone for this mountain home, striking a beautiful balance between modern design and raw natural materials. As guests follow the limestone walkway to the front of the house, they'll spy fresh greenery, stone retaining walls and a chic wood exterior.
From:

Gorgeous Greenery in Front Yard

A long walkway allows for clear views right to the front door. With trees and lush greenery across the front yard, this vacation home truly complements its stunning surroundings.
From:

Custom Cut Address Numbers

A home this impressive needed address numbers to match! So the Landform Design Group had a piece of metal cut in a cool, contemporary style and displayed the numbers along the retaining wall for visitors.
From:

Soaring and Symmetrical Entry

Even at a distance, the front of this vacation home is entirely captivating. Where a soaring ceiling makes the entrance seem larger than life, stone columns and planters on either side of the door establish beautiful symmetry and balance.
From:

Backyard Complete With High-Tech Equipment

Beneath the wood and steel overhang, guests will also find electric heaters, recessed lights, high-tech audio equipment and a screen that rolls down to offer shade from the sun. Two thickened stone walls frame views to the golf course and ski resort.
From:

Stone Retaining Walls Define Backyard

Thick stone retaining walls define the backyard, as well as complement the home's contemporary architecture. A sitting area tucked against the far side of the space allows the owners and their friends to catch up while their kiddos play on the grass.
From:

Patio Includes Mountain Views

Smooth stone extends across the patio, capturing the same hues as the mountains in the distance. Once the sun goes down, the owners can light their fire pit and settle in for the evening.
From:

Modern Fire Pit

Cushioned armchairs ensure that this newly added outdoor space feels especially cozy. Meanwhile, Mexican pebble at the base of the fire pit is both beautiful and functional, as it serves as a draining system for runoff water.
From:

Limestone Path Leads to Front Courtyard

That newly installed limestone walkway leads to a courtyard and sitting area. With two armchairs and a modern fire feature, the owners will love being outside, even in the winter.
From:

Sleek Outdoor Sitting Area

Out back, sliding glass doors open onto a covered sitting area. Here, a modern sofa and twin armchairs from LFDG FURNISH provide comfortable seating, as well as complement the home's sleek architecture.
From:

Chic, Glass-Topped Coffee Table

Much like a little black dress, you simply can't go wrong with a modern coffee table. This piece is a staple in the courtyard, as it provides room for books or for glasses of wine.
From:

Courtyard Outfitted With Warm Accents

Though sleek and minimal in style, this fire feature easily warms the whole courtyard. Orange pillows offer additional comfort and complement the color of the flames.
From:

Overhang Features Sun Shades

When the sun becomes too much to bear, the owners can simply flick a switch and shades will lower from the ceiling. In turn, this outdoor space stays cool and comfortable.
From:

Teal Accents in Elegant Sitting Area

Thanks to a low stone wall, this sitting area includes panoramic views of the mountains. Teal accents decorate the neutral furniture for a fun pop of color.
From:

Deluxe Outdoor Kitchen

A polished concrete platform both smooths out the grass and gives the owners room for an outdoor kitchen. Where the first island features a stainless grill and mini fridge, the second includes seats for visitors.
From:

Swimming Pool Surrounded By Turf

What vacation home would truly be complete without its own pool? To ensure that their clients could make a splash out back, the Landform Design Group installed a sleek swimming pool right into the ground, with turf on all sides for soft entries and exits.
From:

Evergreen Trees and Mountains

Evergreen trees and a lush lawn make this outdoor space even more alluring. The mountain views are the cherry on top of this beautiful design.
From:

Recessed Lighting Meets Industrial Railing

During the day, this large overhang provides a touch of shade, but at night, it boasts beautiful recessed lighting. An industrial-style railing below keeps the balcony safe and secure.
From:

Private Balcony Overlooking Backyard

When the owners want a little peace and quiet, they can retreat upstairs to this private balcony. Here, two lounge chairs wait at the ready for reading, napping or simply watching the sun set over the mountains.
From:

Lower Lawn Accommodates Any Event

Smooth stone steps lead to the lower lawn, which can be used for ball games or large gatherings. Along the way, guests will notice three terra cotta planters that speak to those by the home's main entrance.
From:

Water Feature Shines at Night

Cocktail hour just got a major upgrade. With light strips right in the water, this kitchen island also shines at night -- and will surely draw guests in like moths to a flame.
From:

Kitchen Island With Innovative Design

Okay, how cool is this? A water feature runs right through the kitchen island! Guests eating at the counter will love the innovative design, while those in the sitting area will enjoy its calming sounds.
