From the architect. Situated on a remote 40 acre horse ranch, this 4,300 sf residence is oriented to take advantage of the expansive views of Pike’s Peak and the Colorado Rocky Mountain range. The heavy timber structural system is exposed both inside and out, and allows for a double-height great room with second story loft. Humble materials such as rusted metal, stone, and weathered wood draw reference to the agricultural heritage of the surrounding town.
