A keen eye for details is crucial to creating a home that is as beautiful as it is timeless, but what sets apart exceptional aesthetics from a typical design is not only the meticulous selection of materials and products but the artful mixing and matching of the two. During the architectural phase for Cross Creek Place, developers underwent an in-depth process to ensure the project was not only respectful of historical Minturn but that this history was built into the design.
Like the locomotives that tracked along the Eagle River, stopping at the Gilman Mine, inspiration came from local landmarks. From an old mining head frame to the rusty chutes that carried ore to the mining carts, these elements influenced the design. With a contemporary form and an exterior that calls to days gone by, we capture Minturn’s history of 100 years while representing its modern sense today.
The three duplexes in each enclave have views of the rock outcroppings of Battle Mountain, as well as forest land which surrounds the project. The sound of Cross Creek can be heard as it runs alongside the property and feeds into the Eagle River. Each duplex will have large window walls that capture of majestic views on the main level, much like if you were actually walking through the mountains.
The design features wide open floor plans with sprawling entertaining spaces, soaring vaulted ceilings with custom timber wood beams and living rooms with custom steel fireplaces. A floating stair system lies next to a wall of windows at the entrance. The gourmet custom kitchen will inspire the inner chef with granite countertops, large kitchen islands and walk-in pantries. The divine master suite presents 10 foot ceilings, large windows, exterior 8 foot French doors, and an opulent ensuite bath will a soaking tub and separate glass shower and a generously sized walk in closet. The home also offers three more lower level bedrooms including two with in-suite bathrooms, as well as a media/family room, two laundry rooms and a heated 2-car garage.
After a long day of skiing, hang your skis up in the ski storage room and enjoy a glass of wine, cozied up next to your outdoor fireplace.
Unparalleled by any other lot in Minturn, Cross Creek Place is nestled next to Cross Creek and large parcels of public land with forests, ponds, creeks, and trails. Amenities to enjoy include a hiking outside your front door, biking, Nordic skiing, a new fitness center, snowmobiling, as well as the opportunity to fly fish on Cross Creek or the Eagle River, just a few steps away.
