A large glass box in shape and appearance, the foyer is designed to connect the home's public and private wings.

A large tree trunk slice, placed atop a wrought iron display pedestal, lends warmth in a space defined by cool textures, including dark gray slate and steel.

A wall of glass opens to a covered outdoor dining area. Beyond that, an open gathering space with an outdoor fireplace overlooks the community’s golf course and the Carson mountain range.

Steel panels above the glass doors mirror the home's exterior steel accents and also conceal roller shades that may be pulled for privacy.

Blurring the lines between inside and out, slate tile — both hardworking and stylish — flows from the front walkway, through the home’s foyer and into the back patio area.

A trio of cloche pendant lights illuminates the foyer. Clear glass globes encourage light play while not interfering with breathtaking mountain views.

A Ming-inspired sideboard provides both space for storage and display of treasured accessories. Table lamps illuminate the space and provide visual interest.

This giclee print of an original work by American painter Maeve Harris lends the space's sole shot of vibrant color. Paint drips down in graphic, flowing lines, a contrast to the room's structured steel details.

The foyer's far wall is framed out with painted pine trim. Inside each 34-inch square lies a panel of corrugated steel, a rustic building material that finds a new sleek, sophisticated interior application.

The foyer leads to the home’s private wing, which houses the first-floor master suite and second-floor guest bedrooms and media room. A first-floor hallway, clad in slate tiles, leads to a small mud area and the home's dedicated laundry space.

"It's just like a glass box," says interior designer Linda Woodrum when describing the foyer. "It's clean, spare and spacious. It's really a wonderful connection inside to outside, which is what this property is about."

Glass walls and windows are framed in a deep, rich shade of gray, lending a contemporary twist to the traditional mountain home style.

The home's public "living" wing, which includes the dining area, kitchen and living room, opens out to a slate-clad patio.

Wood, metal and stone elements are repeated throughout the home to emphasize its New Mountain architecture. Using those same materials in the entryway gives guests a preview of the style to come.

Throughout the interior, exposed structural components lend warmth and harken back to traditional mountain home design.
