Along the west side of Skyline Drive engulfed in all of nature’s picturesque beauty, this modernist and architectural property was crafted with thoughtful design to bring an unparalleled experience to life. For the past three decades, homeowner Curt Brannon has worked to bring his vision to fruition by taking a unique approach.
“There’s a process to design, just like there’s a process to creating art,” Brannon said. “With this home, I didn’t stop at basic, but instead took an extra step to make each room unique. With design, it’s all about figuring out how you really want to use the space and then designing it to fit your lifestyle. It’s also important to understand that if something doesn’t work anymore, or isn’t as convenient as you’d like it to be, it’s okay to change it along the way. A home shouldn’t cause the homeowner to bear any more stress, but instead allow them a haven to debrief after a long day.”
Brannon, who founded Modern Work Suites and Studios in Omaha, said architecture and design isn’t meant to be experienced all at once. This certainly rings true for this home, as a compelling detail is waiting around every corner. While each project took time, Brannon said all parts pieced together beautifully in the end. Today, the home is a perfect blend of serene and artistic elements with a splash of the unexpected on the side.
This four-bedroom and four-bathroom 5,487 sq. ft. sanctuary leaves no space unused. Graced with a nine-foot depth indoor pool, an “art catwalk,” a custom pet shower in the laundry room, a spacious three-car garage with ample storage, and an oversized chef’s kitchen featuring a commercial six-burner and flat griddle gas range, two stone pizza ovens, a convection oven and three traditional ovens, this house is anything but average.
“People are craving experiences at home with their loved ones now more than ever before,” Brannon said. “This home offers more than just entertainment space—it exudes life and energy. It was the perfect place to raise my family, and it allowed us to interact, unwind, and have fun all at the same time.”
The home’s radiant hydro in-floor heating system, as well as multiple fireplaces, ensure the home remains cozy throughout the winter months. Windows flow effortlessly throughout the entirety of the space, drawing in the scenic views that await just beyond the exterior walls. The patio and deck area stretch alongside the back of the house, allowing guests to spill out and witness the mesmerizing sunset through the trees. While it might look like a scenic hideaway at first sight, the property is no more than a few minutes away from the bustle of the city, offering the best of both worlds.
Over the years, Brannon and his family have enjoyed all areas of the property—from entertaining around the outdoor fireplace on a chilly fall night, to sledding down the back hill on a snowy Sunday, to adventuring into the trees and meeting wildlife, to hosting pizza parties in the kitchen, to spending time in “The Woodstock Room,” and “The Beatles Room.”
“I think it’s important to not be afraid to create unique spaces and engage differently in your home,” Brannon said. “To be average is easy. Instead, try to make life an experience. Don’t be afraid to venture out of the norm and have a little fun. I think this home really represents that kind of outlook and lifestyle, and it will be perfect for those who are looking for an out of the ordinary experience.”
