Charles Deaton Sculptured House

Bedrooms: 4
Baths: 4
Offered at $7,950,000

Hovering high above I-70 in the foothills of Denver is the famous landmark, the Sculptured House. Originally built in the mid-1960's by architect Charles Deaton, the home is internationally recognized as one of the finest examples of modern organic architecture in the world.

The original shell shaped structure was recently finished after sitting vacant for 30 years and a 5,000 square foot addition, also designed by Deaton, was added. It includes a state of the art stainless steel and granite kitchen. A four car garage connecting to a 1,015 square foot guest or caretaker's apartment that is complete with it's own kitchen. The original structure has a circular elevator made famous in Woody Allen's movie Sleeper that reaches five levels with 3 bedroom suites, a living room, wet bar and large deck off the master.

The Sculptured House is offered with the owner's collection of the finest modern furniture. Together the furnishings and the house combine to make an inhabitable work of art.

Some of the features include:

Italian Glass Tiles and Terrazo Floors (took 8 months to install)

Cabinetry in Kitchen and Master Suite took 9 months to design and install. Made of Tamo Japanese Ash that displays a unique grain, accented with slab granite

Entertainment Room has built-in cabinets from Africa

Deck contains 5,500 square feet of Colorado Red Sandstone, each piece was cut by hand into one of 20 different trapezoid shapes to make the circular pattern

Metal welding and sculpting was created by one metal artist whom worked on the project for almost 2 years

There are only 2 right angles in the house, everything else is curva-linear

Custom glass counters with integrated sink bowls

Significant piece of modern architecture, one of America's most interesting architects

The sculptural shapes embodied Mr. Deaton's belief that architecture should reflect the rounded natural world, as well as the rounded bodies who live in it. Abstract, organic, part of rock outcroppings

Elevation 8,000 square feet above sea level, positioned so that it hangs over a mountain with views of Denver and the Continental Divide
