Rob Steinway, a retired mechanical engineer who worked in the aerospace and medical device industries, and Wendy Steinway, a semi-retired piano teacher, designed the U-shaped house, which has an interior courtyard, so they could see a stunning view from every room.

These views are “like nothing I’ve ever seen before in Boulder County,” Zeldner said. The house has a driveway with a 270 degree view of the valley. You can see Boulder, Denver, the Flatirons, and the Indian Peaks Wilderness area.

He noted that even the four-car heated garages on each floor of the two-story home — which can accommodate eight cars — have extraordinary views. “The garages are beautiful, with high ceilings, epoxy floors, a hydraulic elevator in the floor and a workshop,” he said.

Rob Steinway, 70, a self-described “car nerd”, has restored several models, mostly from the 1970s, in garages. He said he and his wife now own five vehicles.

The 5,111-square-foot home, which has three bedrooms and four bathrooms, sits on about 2 acres (4.5 miles) above Sunshine Canyon, which, Zeldner said, “is a great property for the area.” He added that although the property offers the utmost privacy, it is only 12 minutes from downtown Boulder.

The stucco and stone residence was built using energy-efficient materials and advanced construction techniques. It has radiant heat floors and solar cells And thermal solar panels, humidification system and whole house reverse osmosis water filter.

Other features of the residence, which is accessed via a long paved driveway, include entertainment spaces, two offices, soaring beamed ceilings, wide-plank hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s a patio off the master suite, which has a large custom closet and a spa bath with a deep soaking tub.

“What stands out about this house is how peaceful and quiet it is,” Mr. Zeldner said. “It looks amazing in photos, but it’s even more impressive in person.”

Wendy Steinway, 64, said she not only loves the unusual design of the residence, but “also how warm and cozy it is because we brought in a lot of wood tones.”

The Steinways are moving into a house in Boulder County that needs renovations, and they point out extra garage space.

“I’m a project kind of guy, and I wanted another house to work on,” Rob Steinway said. “The Sunshine Canyon house is perfect, and there’s nothing left for me to do.”
