Ichiban!

The latest 5280 Magazine has published the annual neighborhood guide, introducing it with the adage that if you don't know what "it" is you will know "it" when you see it. What defines "it"? You know it when you see it as in walking into a crowded room and seeing the stand out, the "it" person to meet. This is the individual that exudes a charismatic attitude with effortless elegance, in dress and stature even the accessories, a simple pearl necklace or an exceptional escort. The Japanese have a word for "it" defining what you can't describe, you just know it when you see it. The word is "ichiban" and when someone has plenty of ichi it shows. A listing coming soon defines living with effortless elegance. Artistic architecture and organically constructed; natural sandstones and woods mix well with the sense of style and color that the owner brought to the home. There is an energy in the home, a certain ichi that one feels as you walk into the entry and see the airy crystal light fill the rooms through the walls of windows. From the same windows, mountain and golf course views are visible through the towering pine trees. If you don't know what ichi is, this house will show you. As Henry David Thoreau said, "It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see." Connect with me for a preview of this home that will soon be listed for sale. email: judy@kentwoodcity.com posted: May 3, 2011 - Judy's Denver - Blog
