This is a special property. Built by Ed Johnson, this unique log home is nestled behind the back nine of the Hobble Creek Golf Course and overlooks the 16th hole. The home combines a strong sense of individuality while blending the elements of nature with a rustic western design. The location and design give this property the best of both worlds: civilized recreation and the wild beauty of the canyon.
The home is constructed with 12" hand hewn logs in a "Double D" style. The logs are chinked with a synthetic chinking to give the home an authentic style. The garage was particularly designed to mimic an old stone two-story barn. This use of native materials has resulted in a simplet, yet powerful design that is as distinctive as it is beautiful.
A sprawling main floor offers an open ambiance, yet still provides comfort and coziness throughout. The 26 foot vaulted great room features a large stone/stucco fireplace with a wraparound walnut mantel. A majestice 21 foot hand framed log window unit provides spectacular views of the mountains and the golf course. Natural hickory hardwood floors give warmth and radiance to the space flowing into the entry and the adjoining office. Hand-troweled plaster adds texture to the drywall and compliments the chinked hand-hewn log construction. The large kitchen and dining area typify the open design. The kitchen features beautiful rustic alder cabinets and Viking appliances, as well as granite stone and travertine marble. When you want to entertain large groups the deck off of the kitchen accomodates large groups, as well as creates an unforgetable setting with the outdoor fireplace and mature landscaping.
Gorgeous stairs lead up to the vaulted family room where a spectacular stone fireplace anchors one of the favorite rooms in the house. The large windows provide ample light and wonderful views. The second floor also features a guest bedroom and bathroom and an incredible master suite set off by a massive stone fireplace. This spacious master suite has everything you would ever want in terms of space, design, and privacy. It even has it's own private patio complete with a hot tub to soak up the ambiance. A back stairway leads down to the main laundry room providing easy accessibility.
If you are looking for quiet solitude and a home you can truly open the door and feel as if you never want to leave this is it.
