Designed as a launchpad for the homeowners’ many outdoor recreation activities, the home is aligned to the edge of a gentle slope.

The home has been designed as a long, linear plan punctuated by two wings at either end of the house that reach out into the landscape to capture dramatic views.

Elevating the social areas of the home, like the kitchen, dining, and living spaces, allows for sweeping, treetop views of Ulery’s Lake and the Spanish Peaks.

The design emphasizes a link to nature in every room, with indoor entertaining areas directly connecting to outdoor spaces for a free flow of movement from inside to out. Continuous hemlock soffits run from exterior to interior, as seen in the living room.

Furnishings help bring the colors and textures of nature inside, with pops of deep reds and oranges, rich leathers, and textural rugs and fabrics conjuring an autumnal landscape palette. A games room and bar is an example of this.
