This magnificent log and timber home is located at the confluence of the Roaring Fork River and Woody Creek. The design approach created a 12,000 square foot complex of buildings that appear to be built over a long period of time as a family grew and prospered. The main structure is primarily of "true log" construction; utilizing custom cut and fitted hand-hewn logs throughout. The "wings" are of timber construction, as is the guesthouse, reflecting the way these mountain estates would typically grow.
Unlike more typical log homes, the structure succeeds in achieving a high degree of elegance, both through its design and the logs on the interior. Multi-colored river rock, derived from the site, is used for interior fireplaces and exterior base material. Large slabs of snapped-edge granite provide countertops and work surfaces throughout the house. Colorado buff sandstone and wide plank wood are used as flooring.
Custom wrought iron work for railings, custom designed light fixtures and furniture compliment the materials texture and sale of the house.
