This Forest Highlands Retreat is a very unique home, nestled comfortably amidst the stately pines of Flagstaff. This clever little home is modern in plan but has a rustic vocabulary which harmonizes with its wooded surroundings. Unlike many modern buildings, this residence is not cold and box-like; rather, it is articulated both inside and out by choice of materials, balconies, and varying roof forms.
On the exterior, exposed rafter tails pass by clerestory windows which fill the space with daylight. This light washes over graceful timber rafters and a wood ceiling which in turn meets the large stone chimney. The gallery-like great room is free of partitions and open up to a magnificent view, allowing the feeling of nature converging indoors. Richness of design and “cultured nature” give this home a unique beauty that will be loved for years to come.
