Butterfly House - Unique Mountain Home with Waterfall!

Holiday home in Highlands with kitchen and balcony
The Butterfly House is a unique, contemporary Jim Fox design (similar to Frank Lloyd Wright's "Falling water" home) with long-range mountain views of Blue Valley. As soon as you arrive, you'll be greeted by the delightful melody of the waterfall beside the house. Entering the front door, take in the breathtaking views with the floor to ceiling windows. This home has 4 wood-burning fireplaces (several have gas starters). The living area has dual stone fireplaces that can be viewed and/or used from the indoor or deck area. The dining area seats 8 and there is an additional eating area next to the kitchen. The galley style kitchen features granite counter tops, a beverage cooler, Thermal range with a gas cook top/electric oven and pot warming racks. Open the doors to enjoy the mountain breeze and for easy access to the wrap-around decking. Off of the main level is the family room with a large flat-screen TV with VCR/DVD, iPhone docking station, small fridge, microwave, games and movies. There are also 2 guest bedrooms. The first with a Queen size bed and the second with 2 sets of twin bunk beds. The guest bedrooms share a full bathroom. The Master suite is upstairs and has a private balcony, a stone fireplace that can be seen from the private balcony, a built-in king platform bed, custom cabinetry, large walk-through closet, private bath featuring a dual vanity, towel warmer, and a shower with a special opaque window that "disappears". The bedroom overlooks the living area and the mountain view. The lower level offers a small nook, and has 2 fold-out chair beds (twin size), Satellite TV/DVD, iPhone docking station, games chest, half bath, fireplace "on the rocks" and 2 entrances to the deck with areas from the view to the waterfall side. Note: There is A/C on the main level, but by opening the doors/windows you get the cross breezes.

Breathtaking Views and Great Location!
The views out of every window of this home were breathtaking. It surpassed our expectations for our fall mountain vacation. The location to Highlands couldn’t have been better either it was about 5 minutes from the downtown. If you’re looking for a great house with views this is the one!

Butterfly House
Spectacular views. Great for a total disconnect from internet and cellular service. A couple of our group were in need of internet for work related issues and were unable to get consistent working service. Not even through the wireless provide with the house. House had a leak in master bedroom window bringing a puddle of water to the floor and some items near were dampened. Both were reported in person at the Landmark office to a less than cordial woman. She did have a person come reset the modem and stated she would make a note of the leak. Otherwise was not at all welcoming. The property was in a fantastic location for shopping and dining. Overall wonderful experience here with a great group of girlfriends.

Work of Art
This house is truly a work of art! I would enjoy knowing more about how it was designed/built. We had a marvelous week there. The views were magnificent, even on a rainy day. The house had everything we needed. We'll return for sure...we loved this place!
