Designed by Nationally acclaimed Architect, Ewing Architects, Inc., The Main Home (7,249 sq.ft. & 5,404 heated sq.ft.) offers 3 bedrooms and 3 baths and is designed using reclaimed local materials (Reclaimed Wood from Tennessee Tobacco Barns, Douglas Fir, Granite, Marble, Slate, Flag Stone and much more) with unlimited “high-end” fixtures and appliances throughout. The heavy timber used is black-stained re-sawn railway bridge timber that had been abandoned at the San Juan railroad depot 6 miles downriver. Wainscoting “Stucco” and Moss rock collected on the property within 600 yards of the main home. The roof is made of old corrugated reclaimed steel, acid etched and stained with heated Copper Down spots and wrap around covered deck & patios made out of redwood. The home is situated on a knoll above the ranch center with long vistas of the ranch, barn, corrals, hay fields, Blanco River and beyond.
In addition to the Main Home, there is an additional Guest Home (1,523 sq. ft.) designed by the same award winning Architect in a contemporary Anasazi-influenced style to include sliding glass walls that recede into wall pickets, walk-in fireplaces an infinity tub and the steel railroad tracks used as rafters.
