You’d be pleased to see the Morningstar Residence which is a modern home with warm and rustic textures located on the Roaring Fork River, Aspen, Colorado. The design of the house is based on old European farm structures given a contemporary twist. It is a 5,126 square foot house with four bedroom and four-and-a-half bathroom. It features a central core great room with glass hallways that leads to the bedrooms as well as the additional rooms were one can get a lovely view of the Roaring Fork River.
The Morningstar Residence has an open plan living area anchored to one side by a modern kitchen and a massive steel fireplace on the other side. It used reclaimed timbers, concrete flooring, an amazing lighting-scheme and dry-stacked stone walls. You can also see a wine-storage on one side of the dining area.
