Welcome to the Barn House - A one-of-a-kind property conceived and built by the seller’s father in 2002. The original, working barn on the property was designed and built in the early 1980’s by renowned Steamboat architect / builder, Joe Patrick Robbins. In 2001 after purchasing the land with the existing barn, the seller’s father contacted a local architect, Michael JK Olsen to help design the whole concept of the Barn House.
Parts of the barn were deconstructed and rebuilt with a modern heating and new roof system. The upper level of the barn became the great room, and the original beams, floors and ceilings have been preserved. In-floor radiant heat was installed from below to preserve the original floors and the hatches for hay drop have been closed off. The horse stalls in the lower level of the barn have been removed and a concrete floor featuring a separate in-floor heat / boiler system have been added. A separate hot water heating system ensures that both the upper and lower levels of the barn maintain their heat. While the lower barn is currently being used as an additional garage and workshop, this space could be converted into living space and adjoined to the upstairs.
The rest of the house was meticulously designed to connect with the existing barn. The heating system / hot water system for the main house was replaced about 3 years ago with a Triangle Tube Prestige heat system and was the highest efficiency unit available at the time.
Enjoy incredible views of the Yampa Valley and the evening alpenglow of the Steamboat Ski Area. Lovely open kitchen to living room includes top of the line appliances and granite countertops. Master bedroom and office are on the main level. Two large bedroom suites on lower level are separated by a family room. The property is just over 2 acres and is professionally landscaped. There is an Equestrian easement around the entire property and Country Green subdivision. All this just minutes to downtown Steamboat Springs.
