THE HOUSE ON THE HILL

If you were to look up the characteristics of a modern home, you’d find that the Hills’ home has it all — in spades. Clean lines, little ornamentation, large expanses of glass, innovative building materials, expansive interiors and open floor plans, reliance on technology, energy efficiency and use of eco friendly materials.

AN OLYMPIAN’S SANCTUARY

Photography by Brent Bingham If you were to look in a dictionary for the explanation of the word “home,” you would find many definitions. “A place of residence.” “The place in which one’s domestic affections are centered.” “The place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household.” However, for most, those definitions are simply not adequate.

ONCE UPON A HOME

This timeless home on Vail’s Beaver Dam Road exudes Old World charm Photography by Brent Bingham and Ric Stovall It’s a home with a story that began less than three decades ago but has now entwined its way around multiple generations and continues to unfold through present and soon-tobe new owners.   The tale begins in the Tyrolean and Swiss Alps and then winds its way to Vail, in a storybook European home in an idyllic mountain setting at the foot of Vail Mountain. Here the tale turns enchanting indeed as captivating paintings lead through room after excellently-crafted room, each depicting a new chapter in the original owners’ lives, while enlivening rooms already resplendent with rich color, Old World charm, grace and beauty. Like the storyboards that helped define them, the home is now ready to weave new tales of life.   The home was originally built in 1991 by a couple […]
