CASTLE PINES VILLAGE - SOLD
Ascending from the Kaleidoscopic Verdant Gardens is a Residence so Brazenly Defiant of Traditional Design Principles it Earned the Coveted ‘Home of the Year’ Award by Colorado Homes and Lifestyles Magazine in 2012.

Discarding the Prevailing Paradigm of Western Culture Home Design, the First Chapter in this Story Begins with the Creation of a Spiritual Sanctuary of Contemplative Design. Enter Martin Mosko and Alxe Noden of Marpa Landscape & Design; the Dynamic Visionaries who Transformed an otherwise Non-Descript and Flat Plot of Land into a Serene, Life-Sized Mandala Consisting of Sweeping Elevation Changes and Vibrant Flora. The Full-Acre of Sprawling Japanese Gardens Beg to be Discovered – A Sensory Exploration of Life, Space and Time.

From the Moment you Arrive, your Relationship with the Outdoor Space Begins. An Outdoor Entry Hall, In Lieu of a Formal Front Door, Descends a Full-Story Below Grade via an Exotic Stone Walkway that Twists and Turns over the Placid Reflecting Pools.
