The ranch house, situated on a 5-acre lot in the Bosque Canyon Ranch development, was designed by Stephen B. Chambers. The ranch house includes 3,745 sf of living space, plus 3 porches, a loggia, and a large two-car garage. The house was built with stone walls, and a raised-seam metal roof with gutters and downspouts.
The open floor plan is perfect for families of all sizes with plenty of room for entertaining, gathering around the stone hearth, and toasting marshmallows in the wood-burning fireplace. A large eat-in kitchen, with marble counters and backsplash, GE Monogram appliances, gas cook top, and walk-in pantry, includes a large breakfast bar that flows to the dining area and living room. This light-filled great room includes reclaimed wooded trusses/beams, hand-scraped hardwood floors, and an abundance of windows providing fantastic views of the outdoors.
Privately located at one end of the house, the spacious master bedroom is inviting with French-doors leading out to a secluded back porch. This retreat includes hardwood floors, and a spa like bath with claw footed tub, steam shower, and two separate closets.
Located at the other end of the main house near the glassed-in porch is a second guest bedroom-suite, large enough for two double beds. This carpeted suite includes a vaulted ceiling and large window nook. Across the hall is a powder bath, and mudroom with built-in dog kennels, sink, and abundant cabinets for storage.
The other three guest bedrooms are in a separate building, on other side of the screened porch. Two of the bedrooms share a bath, with the fifth bedroom located across the hall. This bedroom includes a vaulted ceiling, carpet, and a secluded nook with window seat.
Outside the great room is a spacious covered porch ideal for relaxing and taking in the long views of the surrounding countryside. A stacked stone fence encloses the cleared yard area with a fire pit. The screened-in porch located between the main building and the building with the guest bedroom suites, consists of stone walls, a wood-burning fireplace with concrete floors, and a wooded ceiling. A large two-car garage is located adjacent to the guesthouse and connected by a covered bridge. Water/sewer for the property is provided by a shared water well, three thankless water heaters, and a septic tank.
