Custom Build 6,001 to 10,000 square feet

The Wolf Ridge Project

The vision for this custom home revolved around the client’s desire for privacy, warm contemporary design and the ability to take advantage of the property’s incredible views. They visualized a place where their family could easily gather and enjoy the spacious floor plan. The 10-acre lot features an ideal location, so incorporating views of the expansive property into each room was a top priority. Given its purpose as a future entertainment hub, the home was designed to include dedicated space for occasional chef stays and various pet amenities for the dog-friendly family. Overall, this design masterfully combines modern style, family-centric features and a seamless connection to nature.

One of the project team’s challenges was balancing the home’s modern design with the desired family-friendly atmosphere. Additionally, integrating a fully-equipped kitchen on the lower level while maintaining a solid connection to the natural surroundings presented technical challenges. Logistically, the team carefully planned for adequate, well-organized space for all the client’s vehicles, equipment and new built-in car lifts.

The team’s thoughtful design approach allowed more opportunities for large, scenery-facing windows on the back of the house. Their approach also ensured the home’s present and future ability to accommodate accessibility and multi-generational living needs by incorporating an elevator and an additional first-floor bedroom.
