Mountain Ranch in Ouray County
A collaborative effort by a devoted couple, late architect Doug Macfarlane, master builder Dan Daley, and construction overseer Steve Bonnett, this mountain ranch in Ouray County is a fusion of visionary design and expert craftsmanship. The journey began with the search for the perfect land in Colorado’s San Juan Mountains, offering year-round access, privacy, captivating views, and direct access to outdoor activities like hiking and hunting, resulting in a blend of modern luxury and rustic charm that pays homage to the area’s rich mining heritage.
The home, nestled amidst towering Ponderosa pines, frames the awe-inspiring Mount Sneffels, evident in nearly every room, especially the soaring 22-foot-high great room. With a thoughtful layout accommodating 8 adults and 8 children, the interior showcases the perfect fusion of materials such as stone, steel, wood, and plaster, including over 30,000 board feet of reclaimed barnwood and antique oak circle-sawn flooring. The meticulous craftsmanship of local artisans is reflected in the masonry and awe-inspiring Douglas-fir timbers sourced from Washington State and British Columbia.
Beyond the main residence, this mountain ranch in Ouray County has meticulous landscaping, a detached garage and studio, a children’s playhouse, and an inviting firepit showcasing commitment to artistry and care, symbolizing the heights achievable through visionary design and a passion for excellence. Much like reflecting on personal achievements, this Mountain-modern masterpiece stands as a symbol of accomplishment, inviting discovery and the chance to become a part of one’s legacy.
