This rustic yet refined modern ranch house designed by Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects is the crowning glory of a vast, 8,000-sq.-ft. plateau. Three separate structures combine to form a perfect haven in these pastoral surroundings, each boasting a rural charm that’s as welcoming as it is beautiful. At the request of the client, modest living spaces bring home that sense of coziness that really enriched this ranch design. But beyond this, smaller room sizes also serve to minimize energy consumption. Outside and in, the house is finished in rich, natural woods. Running like a stone spine up the center of the house, a rocky fireplace stretched from floor to room, with a flame in the hearth that’ll attract more than evening insects. This majestic fireplace is definitely the heart and spirit of the home. Turnbull Griffin Haesloop Architects.
