The Aspen House at Summit Sky Ranch
Summit Sky Ranch is a developing community of 240 single-family homes located in the Blue River Valley, 2 miles north of Silverthorne, Colorado. The goal of the community developers is to create homes with clean lines that meet organic shapes, allowing the architecture to fit in with the landscape rather than altering the landscape for the architecture. Owners are able to connect with nature with active mountain lifestyles.
When owners are not out exploring Colorado, they will have the finest amenities to provide their families outdoor experiences to treasure forever. The Aspen House at Summit Sky Ranch will be central in the community and will serve as the social and recreational centerpiece, and will include amenities unlike those found in other communities. These amenities include a private 20-acre lake with beach, an observatory, private Blue River fishing access, communal gathering areas offering yoga, a fitness center, hot tubs, fire pits and an outdoor swimming pool, and nearly unlimited access to the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, which includes multiple world-class ski resorts, along with biking and hiking trails.
The Selux Inula Bollard was chosen for the Aspen House at Summit Sky Ranch due to its sophisticated, clean lines, complementing the design language of the community. With no up light, the IDA Approved “Dark Sky Friendly” Inula is an environmentally conscious lighting fixture, keeping light on the paths rather than in the sky. Combining full four-quadrant light engines with others depending on the need and location, allowed different lighting patterns to be achieved on forest pathways and parking areas.
