81 Mayfly Drive
Code named "Irma," after the builder's dog, this brand new, 6 bed, 9 bath, 7681 square foot home brings together the best that the Rocky Mountains has to offer: astounding views, highest build quality, human friendly architecture and a ski, bike and fish-centric location.
Only one hour from Denver, with eight ski areas nearby, lies the beautiful mountain community of Silverthorne, Colorado. Formerly a ranching area, Silverthorne is currently experiencing an exciting renaissance, led by the town itself which is pouring some $85 million into its own downtown, arts and river access improvements.
Perched on a hillside overlooking this idyllic town and the surrounding mountains, is an extraordinary home. 81 Mayfly Drive, a.k.a. “Irma,” is brand new and is for sale. The stunning lot it occupies is surrounded on two sides by a 38 acre tract of open space. This very special setting is filled with sage brush, wild flowers, aspen and pine trees and is frequented by deer, moose and other wildlife. The skies here are filled with resident falcons, red tailed hawks, eagles and osprey.
Into this natural wonderland was placed the human habitat known as Irma. The architectural inspiration for Irma has come from the arts and crafts school, specifically the “Ultimate Bungalow.” And, no moniker ever invented could more aptly describe Irma. It is “ultimate” for it’s view, enormous windows everywhere, gorgeous refined spaces, high ceilings, privacy and scale. But it is indeed a bungalow for how you feel when you occupy the individual areas of the home, built for fostering intimacy and togetherness. This home is an achievement… both epic and comfortable, intimidating and intimate, capable of evoking both the excited “wow” but more importantly, the relaxed, prolonged exhale of relaxation.
