This stunning home on Red Mountain is nestled into the mountainside and opens to views in all directions in Aspen, Colorado. A project in the making, 20 years prior to construction, this home is owned and designed by Charles Cunniffe of Charles Cunniffe Architects. The architect had applied lessons he had learned from previous commissions to his own house, incorporating his own wishes and influences. The 10,000 square foot home applies warm yet contemporary materials to create a nurturing family home for Charles, his wife Angela (owner of a model and talent agency) and their two kids.
Carefully placed windows allow for ample natural light, while the open layout with doors opening completely to the outdoor waterfall and decks, and provide spacious entertaining spaces. Most of the spaces are housed on two floors, living areas and master suite on the first floor, with children’s rooms, a family room and services downstairs, while the aforementioned guest suite is on the second floor, and an office is perched in the third-floor tower. The plan of the linear house is like a dumbell — the center is an open living area, and smaller spaces are on the ends; this applies to both the first and lower level.
The master suite bathroom is split into his-and-her sides, his-and-her toilets, his-and-her vanities, with a glass-enclosed shower sitting in between. A tub sits at the exterior wall, soaking in the stunning mountain views.
