Location: Telluride, Colorado
The American architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen has made a name for himself with his delightfully minimalist gabled houses, some of which we’ve covered here at Curbed before. But this sprawling residence in the Rocky Mountains? Jaw-dropping.
Sitting on a 35-acre parcel just outside Telluride, Colorado, the home is a whopping 6,561 square feet and comprises ten interconnected pavilions, resembling more of a backwoods cul-de-sac than one residence. The four-bedroom, four-bath home, designed by Hugh and Simon Jacobsen, looks out onto an idyllic, forested mountain range, the perfect scenery to gaze out onto as you sip your morning coffee.
The pavilions are clustered around a court accessed from a gravel road, and the residence’s outer edge features huge glass windows to ensure gorgeous views from literally every room. Each pavilion also has its own patio, so you can step outside no matter where you are in the house.
The home’s interior, with its vaulted ceilings and white walls, almost feels understated compared to its natural surroundings, and manages simplicity without being austere. There’s also plenty of communal space—enough that you might want to give your guests a map when they enter—a movie theater, and a hot tub, because why not?
This residence’s views aren’t for the faint of heart, and neither is its price tag. But if you’re in the market for a near-mansion in the Rockies, this isn’t a bad place to start: 1068 Wilson Way is on the market now for $16.9 million.
