Lake Creek Ranch | Edwards, CO
This 12,000 SF residence is located on 15 acres of ranch/horse land and is adjacent to Lake Creek. It incorporates main level living by locating the kitchen, dining, living and master bedroom suite all on the main entry level of the home. The residence also includes a screened-in porch with a large stone fireplace. The porch opens fully to the kitchen/family room effectively extending the outdoor seasons and enhancing the indoor/outdoor living the homeowners desired. Additionally, there is a home office suite on the upper level and guest bedrooms and a swimming pool with sliding glass doors that open on to the creek. The house was designed to integrate itself into the landscape while capturing the views of the Sawatch Mountain Range, Lake Creek and ranch lands. Berglund architects utilized extensive 3D renderings, as shown here, as part of its architectural and interior design services. The palette of the exterior materials blends into the ranch venacular by using a tapered stone veneer with large stone boulders at the base, reclaimed weathered wood siding, and large heavy timbers supported roof overhangs and covered porchs. The home is scheduled for completion in late 2013.
