Luxury property: Ultimate contemporary

special to the daily

Just off the Peak 8 ski trail in Breckenridge is the quiet, sequestered neighborhood of Lomax Estates. Today’s featured masterpiece is the contemporary residence at 46 Lomax Drive. This four bedroom, five and a half bath masterpiece boasts over 5,000 square feet of living space and is offered at $3,500,000. Additionally, there is a three car oversized garage, and the property backs to five and a half acres of dedicated greenspace, ensuring the privacy of the location.

The home is set well back from the road, with a covered entrance providing a grand detail. The entry door opens into a spectacular living space that sets a new standard in contemporary design. Twenty-two foot ceilings soar, punctuated by a circular ceiling detail and dramatic lighting. On the right side of the room, a copper fascia enhances the “fire and ice” fireplace and centers the space. Straight ahead, dramatic curved floor to ceiling windows alternate with stone columns to bring the outside in. Flooring is tile in bronze and silver tones. A door leads outside to a spectacular patio with a firewall. This is the most brilliant entertainment area, all bounded by the private wooded setting. To the left, a floating glass staircase adds another stunning focal point. Throughout the core of the home, kinetics lighting changes hue in patterns drawing from 1700 computer programmable colors.

To the right, a study and a bath are convenient to the living space. Next is the main level master suite with another fire and ice fireplace, state of the art electronics, doors out to the patio, two walk in closets, laundry, and split sinks. The color scheme here is beautiful in dramatic cocoa and aqua tones. The finishes are the ultimate in contemporary luxury with mirrored silver glass tile work, a rainfall shower head and glass bubble drop light fixtures.

To the left of the living space, a dramatic crystal fixture showcases the dining room, along with a wine cellar, additional dishwasher and bar area tucked behind a frosted glass door with enhancement lighting. The kitchen is done in pure white punctuated by apple green countertops. Stone columns hide storage cabinets with glass doors. Appliances include a hidden Miele steamer, five burner Jenn Air cooktop, refrigerator, and double convection ovens, GE Monogram dishwasher, and Sharp microwave. The first of three laundries is nearby, with Whirlpool Duet appliances. A mudroom is located here, close to the garage.

Upstairs, a floor to ceiling glass workout area has a nearby bath, and a loft sitting area provides a getaway space. A second master suite resides on this level, with sumptuous bath and a private deck. A separate passageway leads to the two additional bedrooms, each with an ensuite bath. In addition to the third laundry, guests in these rooms also have a private coffee and wet bar area, and doors out from their suites lead onto a deck with the spa.

This home is actually a piece of contemporary art, with a setting as spectacular as it deserves. Breckenridge has yet to see a modern residence with this uniqueness and faithful attention to design details. If you have dreamed of beginning your New Year with a stunning mountain home, this is a masterpiece for decades to come.
