A contemporary fireplace is a modern take on the traditional stone focal point. The light-filled space is also enclosed by three walls of picture windows, inviting in plenty of natural light.
The bucolic compound consists of two parcels of land with four houses—a main house and three guest houses—and a total of 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms in all.
Custom-made by JHID in collaboration with The Works Construction and Trio Upholstery, the wraparound sofa features emerald-green, cotton velvet upholstery by Maharam. The wall sconce is by Allied Maker, and the ceiling mount lighting is by Illuminate Vintage.
Architectural elements like coffered ceilings and columns were added to the dining room to give the space the charm and character that is usually associated with older homes.

The back corner of the former dance hall is now a library, with new built-in shelving inspired by designs found in the original family apartment. The natural contour of rocks varies along the hillside; Walter embraced this obstacle by designing this space to sit higher than the dance hall.
A view of the great hall today. Restored soffit lighting glows against original mahogany panels and stonework. Other elements of Walter Hall's design were also renewed—including decorative vents built into the windowsills to hide radiant in-wall heating.
Another view of the living room. The home comes fully furnished, which should make the moving process much less complicated.
The sunroom flows into a large living room, which features a dramatic cut sone fireplace as the central focal point. Timber beams also run along the space, complementing the warm hardwood floors.
Flanking each side of a central window in the living and dining space are two massive Series 600 Sliding Glass Doors from Western Window Systems. Such large doors create a strong indoor-outdoor connection for entertaining and enjoying the bay breeze.
Artist and corrective-exercise specialist, Ruth Hiller, moved to Winter Park, Colorado from New York knowing that her home would be glass and steel with wraparound windows. She hopped on the phone with architect Michael Johnson, he drew the sketch, and it took a mere five minutes to decide on the design. The common areas are suspended and cantilevered over the backyard ravine, offering views of a winding mountain creek while also doubling the square footage.

The family room merges seamlessly with the new outdoor space thanks to all the glass.
"Floor-to-ceiling glazing provides strong indoor/outdoor connections while carefully placed clerestory windows serve to infuse the home with dappled light from above, affording views of sky and treetops," says the firm.
"Higher ceilings and plenty of daylight were a must," say the architects. The ceilings in the living room are 13-feet-high, making the interior feel more open and welcoming.
Leather dining chairs contrast smoothly with a blue velvet sofa and ottoman.
The designers swapped in a dining set where there were previously occasional chairs set up. “All skirting, cornices, architraves, stair trims, window trims and door frames were painted white,” said the firm. “This bought in more light and as the daylight’s shadows play on the details throughout the day, a cohesive story of history is brought subtly to attention.”
The baseboards, casings, windows, and doors are trimmed in Roman & Williams’ favorite high gloss black oil paint by Fine Paints of Europe.
Rich walnut herringbone parquet floors are complemented by meticulous millwork.
A casual bar area is immediately elevated by elegant hardwood, while a breezy sitting room is perfect for entertaining.
“We did not want a lot of bold colors in the art to distract,” says Hill. The artwork was purposefully chosen to blend in with the furniture, rather than stand out.
The TV nook sits just off the living room. Built-in shelving flanks a cozy fireplace.
Wood ceilings lend a warm touch to the interiors. A large wood-burning fireplace and cozy lounge furnishings provide the ideal place to relax and soak in the surrounding elements.

This modern renovation of a traditional ranch-style home maintained the midcentury spirit of the home—and turned it into a showcase for the homeowner's collection of iconic furnishings.
The original layout had a tiny living area in the front that wasn’t spacious enough to accommodate entertaining. To create more space, Tang converted the second floor into a larger living room.
