Al and Margaret Hunt- Hill House- Colorado Springs, CO

I have admired this home for years...It was built for Mr. and Mrs.(Hunt) Hill. The Hunt family ( yes from Texas) developed the area as Kissing Camels Golf Resort, after the famed rock formations to the west known as "Kissing Camels". The Hunt family own the land that also encompasses the Garden of the Gods, in Colorado Springs, CO. We had an appointment to see the house, but Mrs. Hunt was ill so I don't have any interior photos out of respect for her...she passed away shortly after this visit. I tried to find out who the architect was but was unsuccessful...the staff didn't know or couldn't remember as well as the neighbors, though they thought he was from Denver ( I will find out eventually and report in). It's an incredible MCM design, built like a fortress. The light, shadows and views are first class and the landscaping is exceptional.
Nicely sited with fine landscaping...the entry is tucked under the deep overhang...You can't tell how large this home is from the street because of the privacy walls and the landscaping.
This shows the east terrace with separate personal and entertaining spaces divided by a water feature. The deep overhangs provide a sense of security on windy days...note the large glazed areas.

The west side terrace with "shademakers" on a steel framework, an incredible contraption... In the background is the access to the master bedroom wing. Looking to the right you would see the below view..walled, garden terraces with water fountains...Pike's Peak is to the right in the photograph.
