This special, award-winning home, located in Paradise Valley (October 2005 winner of Organic Style House Contest,) is nestled up against a 1,700-acre working ranch, with the extraordinary Gallatin National Forest and Absaroka-Beartooth Mountains as its backdrop, the property folds into the dramatic landscape… The exterior of the house is clad in a combination of metal siding and Douglas fir. The metal siding is painted a deep, green-black color to match the surrounding mountains. The detached garage, built in 2009, has a concrete slab, re-claimed wood siding, electricity, and a rusted steel roof.
Upon stepping inside the galvanized metal front door, you enter a sun-drenched loft-like space, whose wavy ceiling mimics the mountain skyline. The floor plan reveals simplicity, with the living, dining, and kitchen areas flanked by bedrooms on either side. Here you will see polished concrete flooring and walls covered in soft plaster. The western end of the house contains the guest room, laundry room, full bath, and screened porch, which serves as an indoor/outdoor living area. To the left of the entry is the bright and cheerful kitchen, dining and living areas which access the deck, and lush backyard via a wall of windows and French doors. At the far end of the living area is the lap pool, edged with smooth river stones. The eastern end of the house contains the master bedroom suite. A unique silo houses the master bedroom and is connected to the main house by a shed-like passageway that contains the slate-tiled master bath, with a spacious steam shower and marble sink that sits on a slab of Douglas fir. The silo provides a sanctuary with privacy, small, strategically-placed windows, and French doors that selectively frame the landscape and direct sunlight onto the curved plaster walls.
