Spectacular Views—And So Much More

A Castle Pines Village house is as gorgeous on the inside as it is on the outside.


The living room boasts spectacular views of Pike’s Peak.

When you have killer views of Pike’s Peak, what more do you need? Not much, but those perfectly framed vistas are just the start for this Castle Pines Village home.

Finished in 2016, with design by Kim Layne Inc. Interior Design, the almost 6,000-square-foot house—which sits on a very high lot—manages to be a “win-win,” as the homeowner calls it, in every way. “We’ve lived all over the country, including California, Florida and Texas, and when we moved to Colorado, I said to the realtor, darn it, I want mountain views,” she says. “When we saw that this one had views of Pike’s Peak and then some, I knew this was the one. But the design of the house inside and outside was also phenomenal.”


ANIMAL INSTINCT The living room includes a custom sofa from Kravet, leather and chrome side chairs from Lexington Furniture and a petrified-wood side table, all sitting atop a pieced hide area rug by Kravet.

The heart of the four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home is the kitchen, which boasts cabinetry from The Kitchen Showcase, Fantasy Brown Leathered countertops and backsplashes and appliances by Wolf and Subzero. “The kitchen is where we gather and talk about our days and make future plans,” says the homeowner. “It leads into the open family room and then out onto the deck, where we love making s’mores around the fire pit, relaxing and using the outdoor grill. When my two kids are home, we’re upstairs hobnobbing and laughing, or we’re outside.”


THE GATHERING PLACE Top-of-the-line appliances and Kitchen Showcase cabinetry make the kitchen feel grand but accessible.

The home, which was constructed by Masterpiece Custom Builders out of Englewood, is clad on the outside with reclaimed wood from Vintage Woods Inc., Ledgestone from Sunset Stone in Castle Rock and metal accents, which are repeated inside along with beautiful arched wooden beams that dominate the main floor. The massive fireplace in the great room, for example, is dressed in custom metal panels from Colorado Custom Stainless. “The whole concept behind the house was to be very tight in the color palette, but very textural,” says Layne. “I would say it is very modern but also connects to the nature outside.”


PUT YOUR FEET UP The TV tucks discreetly into a grand stone wall, which includes a custom metal fireplace hood designed by Kim Layne.

The house, which has a main floor and then a massive walkout lower level with a huge sectional and fireplace, pool table, foosball table, stunning bar and glassed-in wine closet and beer refrigerator, is also perfect for entertaining. “Downstairs is the ultimate man cave,” says the homeowner. “It’s so relaxing, but you still feel like you’re connected to the upstairs.”


PEAKED INTEREST Wood and stone accents on the exterior entry are repeated inside.


RELAX, REFRESH An unusual glassed-in wine closet and a backlit bar make the downstairs “man cave” welcoming for anyone.


ON TOP OF THE WORLD The homeowners love to spend time on the large, wraparound deck, complete with a grill and lounge seating.
