An Oasis Set Amidst Awe-Inspiring Natural Beauty
“Paradiso,” located on Wilson Way in exclusive Telluride provides a striking and uniquely created juxtaposition between the rugged surrounding scenery and a grand, modern retreat. Situated on a 35-acre property, Paradiso is set against the backdrop of a tranquil reflective pond, which mirrors the dramatic contrast of the surrounding scenery, including gently rolling hills that pair with the ancient soaring peaks of the San Juan Mountains, reaching heights of 14,000 feet.
Life at Paradiso affords the unique opportunity to compare the ancient beauty and the rugged lines of the geographic features which define Telluride while reveling in the sleek, contemporary design of the home itself.
A dock is suspended above the private property pond, and providing a scenic backdrop are green meadows that seamlessly melt into snowcapped mountain peaks in the distance.
Hand-Crafted Quality Construction
Paradiso was under construction for four years and during this time it was devotedly and meticulously constructed by a team of designers, architects and highly skilled craftspeople, utilizing only the finest in globally-sourced materials, as well as materials reflective of the local culture and environment.
Walking in you’ll find spaces that are almost entirely comprised of glass, creating an enchanting blurring of the lines between the indoors and the outdoors.
In the formal living room, which is a soaring multi-level space, you’re surrounded by the majestic environment that is Telluride, yet opulent touches like a bubble-like light fixture remind you of a sense of elegance and designer style, which is so pervasive throughout this home.
A Modern Chef’s Retreat
The kitchen is a modern marvel, where clean lines, a simple color palette and chef-quality appliances create a space ideal for the ultimate in culinary experiences. A vast marble kitchen island sits between center pivot glass doors, found throughout much of the property, and a row of high-gloss cabinetry which conceals an abundance of storage. A professional-level range hood hangs above the island, which offers ample space for food preparation, cooking, seating, dining and entertaining.
This Bulthaup kitchen features a clean, European aesthetic with a light color palette and a richness of materials that feels inviting, yet visually stunning. It’s here you’ll find many of the hand-selected finishes defining the interior of Paradiso, including exotic granite.
Multiple dining areas within the home are against set against the backdrop of seamless center pivot glass doors, which provide not only stunning and awe-inspiring Telluride vistas but can also be opened to effortlessly draw the outdoors into the very essence of the home itself.
Glamorous and artistically-rendered light fixtures seemingly float above the dining tables, giving the home the feeling of a modern art museum in many ways.
A Blend of Indoor and Outdoor Living
Along with intimate indoor dining and entertaining areas, it’s easily possible to bring life to the outdoors as well, thanks to a vast sectional seating area placed against the rolling meadow that is the private yard of Paradiso.
A summer kitchen creates a usable cooking space outdoors, while rustically-inspired fire pits are found throughout the outdoor spaces, create imagery of generations gathering around warm fires, taking in the grandiose nature of the scenery and enjoying fellowship and a sense of togetherness against one of the most beautiful natural environments in the world.
The exterior architecture of 851 Wilson Way is nothing short of astounding, as it seems to rise from the earth itself, like so many of the geographic features that surround it.
There’s an attention to detail and a sourcing of exterior materials that make this home feel so exceptional and distinctive, including a combination of wood beams and exquisite stonework, and even the custom outdoor furnishings continue this feeling that the home itself ascended from the earth, thanks to the craftsmanship, design, and use of materials which define Paradiso.
This property boasts six bedrooms, along with eight-and-half bathrooms, and each of the bedrooms includes not only the incorporation of Telluride scenery, but also a sense of seclusion and privacy, as well as intimate seating and reception areas.
Each of the uniquely designed bedrooms includes walk-in closets and en suite bathrooms, and it’s easy to envision oneself beginning and ending a day in a masterfully designed retreat that takes into account the pristine setting, as well as a sense of relaxation and grandeur.
Bathrooms to Excite the Senses
Many of the bathrooms, and, in particular, the master bathroom, are a vision of modern style, exquisite design and sumptuous luxury where you can allow yourself to float into a sense of relaxation, unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. The bathrooms include a combination of contemporary flooring with wood accents and high-end designer plumbing fixtures.
Many of the bathtubs feature a curved chaise lounge design surrounded only by seamless glass walls, making it possible to feel as if you’re actually floating, without limits, as you enjoy a warm bath soak. The bathrooms are appointed with finishes like exotic granite and limestone hand-selected from India, and also include radiant in-floor heating systems.
The showers are often designed to provide a gentle cascade that mimics the waterfalls found in the surrounding area, with very little creating enclosure or a feeling of walls. There is openness and airiness in the bathrooms that’s entirely indicative of the natural surroundings.
A Private Theater and Other Amenities
The home’s staircases continue the feeling of floating, as solid wood steps seem to be simply suspended as you ascend or descend in the home, and move from one alluring space to the next. There are nooks designed for relaxation, entertainment and quiet reflection found throughout Paradiso, each with a combination of custom recessed lighting and inspired chandeliers.
One entertainment space features advanced television and sound technology set against a plank feature wall, while Paradiso also features a full screening room with leather seating and professionally-designed acoustics that create a theater experience surpassing any other.
The lower level of the property at 851 Wilson Way includes a home salon that continues the modern aesthetic of the rest of the home, along with a spa featuring a mosaic tile custom piece of artwork that evokes a sense of Zen, as well as an subtle, glowing lighting concept that reinforces the feeling of relaxation and complete release that happens not only in this private spa, but throughout the entire property.
A fitness center appointed with only the most advanced of workout equipment boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, affording views of the surrounding property, while thin reed-like beams are placed along the ceiling and portions of the walls, again a reminder of the rustic and natural beauty of the Telluride setting, and the expansive steam room provides a welcome reprieve after a challenging workout, featuring glass enclosures and built-in seating.
The lower level of Paradiso also includes a high-volume wine storage facility, with high-tech temperature control and glass walls that allow the bottles to become a visual display of art in and of themselves.
This home is designed to feel like a vast compound, rather than simply a private residence, and each area offers a sense of secluded living and separation, while the entire property surrounds a scenic courtyard, featuring varying levels, sloping lines, and elevated seating areas.
The courtyard of the home’s interior is framed by meadow-like grass and wildflower growth, sustained through the custom underground irrigation and sprinkler systems. When the wind catches these grassy areas of the property, there’s a ripple that carries throughout, evoking the sense of life and eternal splendor which is a pivotal part of Paradiso.
Portions of the property can be used as horse facilities with the inclusion of a ranch, featuring stables and riding spaces, allowing you and your guests to capture the real essence of the Telluride lifestyle.
