Located on a 30 acre parcel of a former ranch 40 miles south of Denver, this new “farmhouse” is situated to overlook the pastures for the owner’s prized llama herd. A tree-lined driveway leads to a circular drive that connects to the 3 car garage. The south-facing outdoor patio opens to an enclosed garden and backyard “ski hill”. A 3,300 s.f. main residence, a detached garage and a 430 s.f. detached shop make up this “farmhouse compound”. The two-story residence with finished basement is surrounded with covered porches, a breezeway and an outdoor patio with a fireplace. Amenities include a south facing Family Room with fireplace, sky lit stairway and a large open Kitchen with Breakfast Nook. The 4 bedroom, 4 bath home includes a main level Master Bedroom and 2 upper level bedrooms under a cathedral ceiling. The house’s composition draws upon traditional American farmhouse design with a contemporary finish, dominated by simple gable roof forms. The overall scale is reduced by varying roof forms, similar to the way traditional farmhouses grew over time. A simple board and batten wood siding at the upper level complements the horizontal wood siding wainscot wrapping the lower level for each of the “farmhouse compound” structures. Composite shingle roofing covers each building. Interior board and batten wainscot paneling and trim highlight the Great Room area. Generous window layouts capture views and flood the interiors with daylight. Wood floors, granite counters and wood cabinetry are used throughout the interiors.
