Located in on the fairway of TPC Summerlin, this residence was designed for couple with no kids living at home. The large open public spaces reflect the owners’ desire to entertain large groups both indoors and out. The courtyard house is designed as a “contemporary Idaho hunting lodge.” The house is clad in Idaho quartz on the exterior and interior and exposed heavy timber
glue lam beams dominate every room in the house. All of the residence’s windows and interior casework were custom built on-site during the three year construction period. The roofs, gutters and downspouts are natural copper which had already begun the natural patina process by the time of the owner’s move-in.
The house contains an elaborate master suite, four guest rooms, den, gym, family room and office in addition to the formal great room, dining room and kitchen. A natural wine cellar “grotto,” with its own tasting room, is under the house and accessed via an intricately detailed wrought iron spiral stair. Interior and exterior light fixtures, wrought iron gates and hardware were a design collaboration of the interior designer, the owner and the architect.
