Pa Gomo Heading to Auction
680 Hawn Lane, Telluride, Colorado, United States, 81435
Perfectly poised atop Deep Creek Mesa at Gray Head above Telluride, Colorado, overlooking towering snow-capped mountains and shimmering aspen tress, the “Pa Gomo” estate — meaning “on the mountain” in a southern African dialect — is a masterpiece of artful design. Its dizzying views are as good as it gets.
The result of architect Jack Snow’s passion for details and stone mason Simon Aplin’s unique skill, the gently curving copper roof echoes the contours of surrounding meadows, while the stone walls — quarried from the property site — mirror the mountainous terrain. Floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors frame expansive vistas in every direction including breathtaking panoramas of the San Juan Mountain Range. With more than 10,000 square feet, the 5-bedroom home offers both grand and intimate spaces in a series of separate “pods” — all connecting to the main living area — ideal for entertaining.
Sited on a prime, 35-acre lot in Telluride’s exclusive and sought-after Gray Head Wilderness Preserve community, a scenic enclave bathed in sun-drenched mountain vistas, the property enjoys immediate access to the 900-acre wilderness preserve, including an equestrian center, hiking, tennis and more — all within minutes of downtown Telluride and skiing in Mountain Village.
The kitchen is a culinary chef-d’oeuvre, replete with Dacor ovens, several islands, three sinks, a huge walk-in pantry with a full-sized freezer, a wine bar with temperature-controlled refrigerators and a built-in Miele espresso and coffee station. Stone floors inside meld with those on the patio just outside, where the summer kitchen includes a grill, a wood-fired pizza oven, and an Evo flat-top grill. A steel-and-glass cantilevered staircase in the west wing leads down to the media and recreation center, with a theatre, game room, fitness room and spa.
Connected to the kitchen and great room via a glass-enclosed bridge that crosses a pond with a waterfall, the east-wing master retreat seems to float blissfully above the serene water it overlooks. Vistas stream into this space through floor-to-ceiling windows trimmed with rich mahogany. Accentuated by a custom mahogany bed with a flat-screen television that slides into the footboard, the oasis also features a captivating spa bath, complete with a sunken stone hot tub and glass-enclosed shower, and an enviable walk-in closet with a dressing area. Upstairs, a pair of offices, one with a private porch and wet bar, enjoy separate locations across a second bridge. This wing also has a lower-level state-of-the-art media center, theatre, game room, spa and fitness room capturing a marvelous panorama. Click Here to read more…
