The new single-family home at 42 Saw Whiskers Circle in Keystone has just been completed, and the final details done. The three bedroom, three and a half bath home is offered at $1,139,000 which yields a price per square foot of $335 for the 3,393 square feet of living space. Additional inclusions are the Keystone amenities which include bus service, resort accoutrements and skiing proximity, a two-car garage and a quiet location past the excitement of the resort.The first view of the home is impressive with beautiful moss rock work and a stately entrance on the exterior of the house. The front stairs lead up to a wooden front porch and then into the entry which looks directly into the great room. The flooring of the entry is beautiful slate with tumbled stone accents. There is a coat closet on the right.

The great room features two sets of triple glass doors which lead out to the stone patio from the living area on one side and from the dining area on the other. Cathedral ceilings add drama. Majestic windows here look at the wooded setting and the mountains beyond. A dry stack fireplace centers the space, with room for a large television above.

Faucets here are done in satin nickel. This bedroom enjoys a small walk-in closet and sunny views. To the left, is the dramatic master with spectacular views and cathedral ceilings.
