Arthur Connell by Architects Douglas & Hetherington, and the original woodwork was completed by Scots craftsmen. Amazing views of Pikes Peak from both the Living Room and Master bedroom.

The large living room is elegant with leaded glass windows, the dining room has many custom cabinet features and an intricate detailed ceiling with a conservatory off the dining room.
