Aspen Grove Ranch

Situated on 350 acres just a couple hours outside Denver, the Aspen Grove Ranch is a truly palatial residence. Spread across its 24,400 square feet of interior space are 10 bedrooms and 15 full bathrooms, with two half baths thrown in for good measure. The master suite and guest house each get their own wing, connected to the main house by separate bridges that cross over waterfalls and streams while providing views of the surrounding mountains. The guest area also gets its own kitchen, giving the home a total of two, to go along with the home theater, elevator, multiple fireplaces, steam room, stables, wine cellar, billiards room, spa, fitness center, and bowling alley.

  • Backcountry Hut

    Inspired by Ikea founder Ingvar Kamprad's credo of providing well-designed products for the masses, the Backcountry Hut is a modular flat-packed shelter that can be placed nearly anywhere. They use a wooden post-and-beam frame filled in with prefabricated panels and an easy-to-attach window system to help make it as simple to assemble as any furniture you'll find at the blue blue retailer. The standard model strikes a good balance between rustic and modern, and the layout is easily customizable in terms of both design and dimensions.

  • Case Study House #21

    Sponsored by Arts & Architecture magazine, the Case Study Houses provided post-WWII America a vision of modern living, as conceived by such luminaries as Charles and Ray Eames, Richard Neutra, and Eero Saarinen. One of just 17 originals not demolished, remodeled beyond recognition, or never built in the first place, Pierre Koenig's Case Study House #21 is an LA-area steel frame masterpiece. It measures just 1,280 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths. Yet it never feels cramped, thanks to the generous glazing, water ponds surrounding the house, and smart layout that separates the public and private areas with a core comprised of bathrooms and mechanical space. Koenig was asked by the current owners to restore the house in the late '90s, and if you're curious what it looked like originally, take a look through the magazine article announcing its completion.
