This is a story of a breathtaking transformation, where a traditional 5,500 square-foot Snowmass Divide home in Colorado was given a fresh and contemporary makeover.

The result is a stunning mountain modern beauty that bears little resemblance to its former self. Let's take a closer look at the remarkable before-and-after photos that showcase this extraordinary renovation.
