While many people might assume that the fanciest pads in the United States are only located on the East or West Coast, one property in scenic Colorado is proving them wrong. Located in the natural landscape of Pine Brook Hills, a luxury community of 350 homes has wowed homeowners for years. The New York Times reports that now one of those high-quality homes is available for purchase
The home is one of the original structures in the community and was built in 1964. According to the news source, the home has been renovated in the past 10 years so that it would coincide with modern esthetic taste and include more energy-efficient materials and technologies. The house has a butterfly roof and walls of glass facing the views of the Rocky Mountain National Park. The large windows allow homeowners and guests to take in the exceptional views provided by the property's location in the foothills of the Front Range. 
More than 30 skylights are included in the home so that natural light may flood into every room. The New York Times reports that the home has an open floor plan, which allows people to see the views of the mountainside regardless of what room they are in. 
With all of the windows and expansive rooms included in the home, it was important to install and energy efficient heating system in the property. Radiant floor heating was recently installed throughout the home to provide comfort and warmth to everyone. When combined with the high R-value windows and insulation, the system allows a homeowner to remain enclosed in warmth without paying large heating utility bills every month.
