Take a tour of this $12M modern architectural showstopper that overlooks the mountains of Mt. Evans.
Real estate video creator Enes Yilmazer serves as a tour guide of the castle, inspired by the renowned Biltmore Mansion in North Carolina, and designed locally by Boulder’s BVZ Architects. It has four stories created with limestone and all the features you’d expect from a bona fide castle, comes with a courtyard, pitched roofs, turrets, dormered windows, and rows of carved columns.
The outdoors come inside with numerous large windows that allow natural light to mirror off the marble flooring throughout. The entrance hall is one of many entries to an open loggia, a name for “porch.” To the right of the entry is a huge great room with a glass wall facing the majestic Rockies and a custom limestone fireplace. The kitchen also borrows from other famous structures with a self-supporting ceramic tile vault and arch system patented in 1892 by Spanish architect Rafael Guastavino.
