    This 2,000-square-foot roof garden is unique among its peers because it is situated not only on a two-story home, but also on a 1.36-acre property, where natural outdoor space is abundant. But the owners wanted gardens with a view, so they installed a second-floor, irrigated roof deck that offers views of downtown Steamboat Springs, yet blends into the ground below. The home is currently on the market for $2.8 million.
