Perched high on Red Mountain, the Magnifico residence commands breathtaking views of Aspen’s four mountains and the Castle, Maroon, and Roaring Fork valleys. Bluegreen worked closely with the design team to devise a site plan that elegantly responds to a steep site and makes this vantage a reality. Site walls are offset from the home's long axis to create a series of functional terraces for outdoor living. An access drive and auto court, bracketed by board form concrete walls crafted in the same fashion as the architecture, grant access to a memorable entry experience. A simple, yet contrasting plant palette softens the sculptural quality of the architecture and provides warmth and intimacy to the entry. A refined overlook spa terrace captures the essential encore view.
