The Hearth Room addition affords views from the lower Eagle River Valley to Vail’s Game Creek Bowl. The beam work and window trim coupled with the textured walls provide the homeowners a comfortable “Old World” feel.
The Great Room takes advantage of “Top of the World Views of the Vail Valley.” Electric shades concealed in the wood valances allow the Heekins to enjoy the view while cutting down on direct sunlight exposure.
The new Kitchen has been located to the East side of the residence to take advantage of the views. The Great Room and Kitchen are separated by pocket doors that can be closed when entertaining guests.
