A longtime retreat for an Ohio family with a passion for skiing and high-country recreation, this home has literally risen from the ashes. In the winter of 2010, the home burned to the ground. Today, the structure represents a phoenix, as it has essentially been reborn. Jeremy Fischer, Ivan Stanley Fine Home Builders received four Summit County Parade of Homes awards, including “Best Builder and Workmanship,” for this masterful home located in Keystone, Colorado.
Architect Janet L. Sutterley (JLSutterleyArchitect.com) designed a new home with a completely new program while utilizing the existing foundation and footprint. This project became an opportunity to create new river-oriented and energy efficient features while maintaining the look and feel of the old Keystone neighborhood.
The new home features log accents throughout, one of the county’s finest beetle-kill-log spiral staircases, and reclaimed oak floors sourced from an old tobacco barn. The home was designed and finished to accommodate the owners’ growing grandchildren—and to honor memories of the previous home that couldn’t be forgotten.
