Featured Home: Nature's Neutrals

With a palette of calming neutrals woven throughout the variety of pleasing textures in this home, this month’s featured custom-build at Fox Hill exudes warmth and well-being. The community itself focuses on sustainable living, with a professionally-managed neighborhood farm on-site, creating an authentic sense of place and shared purpose by connecting people to the land and to eachother. In a setting like that it’s no wonder this home has a tranquil vibe like no other!

Enter through beautiful custom wood double doors to a large, open foyer. Wide-plank wood flooring in a softly greyed shade of taupe flows throughout the main floor. Walls, ceiling, trim, and doors are all painted Sherwin Williams Pure White, creating a fresh, open feeling.


Your eye is immediately drawn towards the back of the home, where a 4-panel stacked sliding door brings not only light into the great room, but also the surrounding panoramic views. The fireplace serves as the focal point of the room, with a floor-to-ceiling Texas White Stripstone surround and box beam mantel in knotty alder. Matching floating shelves to the left of the fireplace provide space for books or art display.


The kitchen, at the opposite end of the space, makes a statement with custom Tharp cabinetry around the perimeter in Sherwin Williams Hale Navy. The island is stained in a more neutral shade, Oyster, to compliment the flooring.


Seen from this angle, the complimentary shades and textures in both the great room and kitchen are shown to best advantage. A classic white apron sink combined with the black metal of the plumbing, hardware, and light fixtures gives a nod to both farmhouse and industrial styles, marrying the mix seamlessly.


The large island offers comfortable everyday seating for 4 – 5, and the adjacent dining area—with its banks of large windows—provides an inviting space for sit-down meals and family gatherings.


The industrial farmhouse look carries over to the custom dining area chandelier. A convenient and handsome built-in buffet stands ready to serve your next dinner party, with room for a full spread. Below, generously-sized drawers and cabinets provide storage for dishes and table cloths, and a built-in beverage center keeps drinks at the ready. When weather permits, extend the party outdoors onto the large deck.


And speaking of built-in cabinets, you’ll find this convenient coffee bar in the primary suite, tucked into a recessed wall. Imagine the expediency of prepping your morning brew while taking a shower!


Large windows are abundant, and details such as the private door to the deck and the large tray ceiling above the bed add to the custom feel of this suite.


Marble-look, large format floor tile in a matte finish on the bathroom floor creates the perfect compliment to the Oyster finished cabinets. Black plumbing fixtures and hardware echo the understated black mirror frames. Use the deep soaker tub when you’re ready to relax, or enjoy the spacious shower, which carries the floor tile up the walls.


Down the wood-clad steps to the basement you’ll find an inviting family room, with a wet bar and beverage cooler tucked close at hand. Counter-to-ceiling hexagonal tile at the bar makes a style statement.


The basement fireplace is a smaller-scale model of its upstairs counterpart, with the same Texas White Stripstone surround, knotty alder mantel, and adjacent floating shelves. With plenty of room for seating, a game table, and more, this spacious rec room can accommodate it all!


With more than 4,000 finished sq. ft., four bedrooms, and four-and-half baths, this home plan built at Fox Hill offers space, style, and comfort in abundance. Imagine yourself surrounded by a beautiful Colorado sunset, viewed from the fabulous windows, back deck, or front porch of this stunning home.
