Luxury Outlook 2022
An ambitious exploration into high-end residential markets across the globe.
Tucked within the woodlands of its own private, snowy hill, The Majestic Overlook at Fish Creek presides over the wintry dreamland of Steamboat, Colorado. A rich display of warm design and architecture gestures toward the nearby landscape, transforming its visual vernacular into an oasis of comfort and fun. The interior space is replete with knotty wood fixtures including walnut flooring and alder cabinets, doors, and trims. The effect culminates in a ski lodge aesthetic that welcomes you after an exciting day of hitting the slopes just minutes away.
Organic hues are central to this home’s overall palette: textured woods, beveled rock, and earth-toned tiling. Expansive windows in every room offer sprawling views of this almost 14-acre property—including stunning vistas of Steamboat Ski Resort, the Flat Tops, Emerald Mountain, and the Sleeping Giant. While still only a few minutes away from the town center, this abode strikes a convenient balance between practicality and a full-on escape from the everyday.
Prioritizing alpine serenity in its design, this unique property is a hub for relaxation and recreation. An entire floor is cordoned off for fun and winding down, complete with a pool table, kitchenette, and adjacent 12-seat home theater. Of course, a prime feature of any winter escape is a beautiful hot tub, which in this home is located outdoors with panoramic views of the Colorado mountain ranges. Four of this chalet’s seven luxurious bedrooms boast lavish steam showers, as well as several soaking tubs in your choice of eight full bathrooms.
If the dramatically winding dark-wood staircase isn’t for you, take the elevator up to the main living spaces and upper decks. A visual expanse of space is foregrounded when walking into the living room, emphasized by vaulted ceilings and floor-to-roof windows that accompany them. Blue skies and sunshine filter into the living room at all hours of the day, complementing the gigantic candelabra-like chandelier at its heart.
In the main kitchen, which is flanked by a secondary catering kitchen and wet bar, comfort is met with ease of entertaining. Filled with a range of amenities including a stainless-steel stove and oven, pasta arm, and two sinks, several marvelous granite counters bring together this dynamic space in which hosting guests is a breeze.
The exterior deck space creates an opulent interplay between luxury and peace found in the natural surroundings, and these beautifully curated outdoor relaxation zones are like mountain peaks of their own. Catching rays of the sun at all points of the day while simultaneously overlooking the bountiful wildlife indigenous to the nearby National Forest, this home proudly integrates itself within the majesty of the landscape that envelops it.
Though in touch with the restorative aspects of the forest and mountains that set the backdrop for its stunning site, the Fish Creek property remains at the forefront of cutting-edge home technology for a streamlined experience. Solar film lines the home’s doors and windows, and electric shades provide increased privacy whenever desired. Additionally, a Creston technology system has been installed with keypad access on each floor, as well as access from your own smartphone.
The Majestic Overlook rests perfectly at the intersection of comfort and excitement, relaxation and entertainment. Thoughtful architectural design and aesthetic touches transform any winter day into one of serenity—while still being in close proximity to Steamboat’s best attractions.
