Redskins’ head coach Mike Shanahan’s mega mansion is finally completed. The whopping 34,927 square foot home is located on Cherry Hills Park Drive in Cherry Hills Village, CO and is now visible on Google Maps. Mike and his wife Peggy started building the home in late 2008. It boasts two home offices, a gallery, music and living room, dining room, gathering room, conservatory, a kid’s arcade/playroom and more. The lower level supposedly boasts a 2-lane bowling alley, a lounge, poker room, golf simulator room and an indoor racquetball court. The property also includes a 3600 square foot 6-car garage, 2150 square foot guest house, swimming pool and two bridges.

      LOL I know, I bet it’s very claustrophobic inside 😉

        Add a 1 and two zeros to the square footage and it’ll be almost the right size!

    Does anyone know what is all that STUFF on top of the roof?

      Can’t say positively, but they definitely appear to be solar panels.

    Jesus. One of the busiest looking homes I have seen in a while. Pool location is asinine (and the pool itself is a letdown). I cannot wrap my head around why architects feel the need to locate the pool in a tiny little area all by itself. Am I the only one that wants to see the pool (especially when I don’t have a water view) when I walk into the foyer and gaze through the living room windows? Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but that is a feature I demand in a home.

    This practically screams taste and subtlety! It’s incredibly unattractive from the air. It definitely has a hotel vibe going on.

    I am thinking that privacy issues are why they tucked the pool in where they did, fewer prying eyes near the neighbors garage wing. The grounds look pretty nice though somewhat lacking around the pool.

    What on God’s earth is he going to do with a house that big?
    Is he moving the entire team in with him?
    You sure that is only 35,000 sq.ft? For some reason it seems bigger.
    Christ, that driveway must have been a million dollars alone.

    Apparently the architect of this “home” had so little confidence in his talent that he decided to simply give up on any kind of architectural aspirations whatsoever. The entrance drive offers arriving guests a view of the backyard with its sprawling mess of gardens and lack of any cohesive architectural features, while the entrance is tucked away to the side of the property and is completely dominated by the massive porte-cochere. Is this really the best scheme that could be accomplished with a client willing to build a 35,000 square foot home? Apparently form follows function completely here, as it looks like the client said “I want these rooms” and the architect threw them all together without thought of circulation, convenience, practicality, or any artistic merit…..

      I know that someone will probably shoot down what I’m saying, but here are my thoughts at the moment. Do you think that the architect was told by Shanahan what he wanted in the home, and then was left to design and build it however he felt was best while incorporating everything the owner wants? I would venture a guess that whatever design was put forth was agreed upon by the owner. If it was not to his liking, I would think that the client would let the architect know that and ask for revisions to the design. I don’t think the owner would situate his house that way if that’s not what he wanted. Apparently this is the best scheme for this client, as we can all see that he chose to build the house this way.
