Builder Travis Miller’s client wanted an entertainment-friendly space that would wow guests—and that’s exactly what he got.
For some homeowners, a stocked fridge barely scratches the surface when it comes to entertainment-friendly spaces. Enter Travis Miller’s client, a Colorado transplant who wanted a space that combined the natural spirit of the Rockies with some truly jaw-dropping entertainment amenities. Behold: one of the most eye-popping party pads we’ve ever seen.
As guests enter the home, they’ll encounter a disappearing waterfall; then, once inside, they’re met with a wet bar almost immediately inside the front doorway. Inside, the home manages to feel both high-tech and homey, with straight lines, smooth walls and rich walnut accents. Pop downstairs and you’ll find another entertainment space with arcade games and shuffleboard tables, plus a hidden media room paneled with reclaimed local barn wood and Colorado memorabilia.
But the real star of the show is the outdoor area. To make your way outside, all you have to do is raise the automatic screen and slip through one of the massive glass sliders to open up the entire back of the house. There, you’ll find an outdoor kitchen area that’s undeniably better equipped than most indoor kitchens with a wall of stainless steel appliances, a sleek outdoor gas fireplace and a TV with a bar area and even a full-sized hot tub. Here’s hoping our invitation is in the mail.
