Luxury Property: Distinction at The Reserve

special to the daily

The newly completed home at 101 Primrose Place in Frisco brings a creative, contemporary twist on the mining and arts and crafts period architecture. The residence is situated toward the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and enjoys a site bounded on two sides by open space. Offered at $1,399,000, this four bedroom, four and a half bath residence shines with creativity, attention to detail, and craftsmanship.

A long covered walkway leads to the front entry. From here, view the combination of natural rock, bolted timbers, metal, and reclaimed barnboard which are used throughout the home, both inside and out. The door opens into a slated foyer with sand and gray tones. Directly ahead is a mudroom with GE washer and dryer, utility sink, and access to the two car garage.

Just up a short flight of stairs is the Great room. From every window, mountain vistas take command. The home has been carefully situated to drink in views of Mount Royal, Little Chief, Wichita, and Buffalo Mountain. The kitchen on the right features “weathered” granite, and alder cabinets. A two tiered island houses a wine refrigerator and prep sink and adds work space and seating. Other appliances include a Wolf six burner range and microwave/convection wall oven, Sub Zero refrigerator, and a pair of Asko dishwashers. The window over the double sink has a breathtaking view.

Nearby, a powder room has a view and a door out to the patio, and features a vessel pedestal sink, indicative of the unique design flair throughout the home. Another door from the dining area leads out to the 1200 square feet of flagstone patio which drinks in the southern exposure. The landscaping enhances the setting with native plants.

The living space has a bank of casement windows on each side, and a rustic fireplace, as well as soaring cathedral ceilings. Stone pillars add a natural detail. The main floor master with a fireplace is tucked behind the living space for maximum privacy. The master bath has a corner jetted tub, a separate shower with rainwater or conventional head, and double sinks. There is a mix of granite and tumbled stone in sand, cream, ivory, and gray.

There are two wings to the lower level, adding a design element, as well as enhancing privacy. The stairway behind the Great room fireplace is made special with reclaimed barnboard and metal. There are two bedroom suites on this level, each with a bath done in natural stone. An additional laundry is here for convenience. On the opposite side of the home, beautifully crafted wood stairs lead into an additional gathering room with wet bar. Appliances include a GE Monogram refrigerator with icemaker and a Monogram wine cooler. An additional bath and bedroom sit nearby.

Throughout the residence, care has been taken to meld the finest points of the arts and crafts period with modern details and beautiful finishes. Five panel natural toned wood doors and oil rubbed bronze faucets and hardware marry with reclaimed materials and give a contemporary flair. Along with a spectacular setting and central Summit County location, the home is the perfect backdrop for realizing all your mountain dreams.
