As you reflect on your life's most significant accomplishments, what comes to mind? Was it a career milestone? Perhaps it was achieving a challenging athletic goal? Or maybe the most rewarding accomplishment was raising your loving family? Just as life's achievements come in many forms, there are also exceptional residences scattered across the globe that stand as remarkable accomplishments in their own right. Situated on 40 pristine acres atop the Skyline Drive Ridge, within the gated community of Park Estates between the idyllic towns of Ouray and Ridgway, stands a testament to achievement—a Mountain-modern masterpiece. This exceptional residence is the culmination of a collaboration between a devoted couple, the visionary late architect Doug Macfarlane, master builder - Dan Daley, and Steve Bonnett – the man hand-picked to shepherd day-to-day construction. Together, they assembled a team of exceptionally skilled local craftsmen to make a vision into a reality. The journey began with the quest to secure the perfect piece of land in Colorado’s San Juan Mountains that would offer year-round access, privacy, a sunny south-facing exposure, and most importantly, amazing views, including a view of majestic 14,150' Mount Sneffel’s imposing north face and its iconic couloir. Furthermore, this dream property had to offer access to hiking and hunting, right from the doorstep. Park Estates, a community composed entirely of 35-acre parcels, offering private access to the Natl Forest and 13 miles of private roads, proved to be the ideal location. This extraordinary home pays homage to the rich mining heritage of Ouray County, blending modern luxury with rustic charm. Situated amidst towering Ponderosa pines, the residence frames Mount Sneffels, a constant presence in nearly every room, most notably in the soaring 22-foot high great room. The home boasts two private 5-piece master suites, one on the main floor and another on the lower level, along with a third ensuite on the lower level. A fourth bedroom, a kid's bedroom/playroom, a fourth bathroom, and a loft on a third level provide ample space. Powder rooms are conveniently located on the main and lower levels, and the home comfortably sleeps 8 adults and 8 children. The exquisite materials used in the residence are the perfect blend of stone, steel, wood, and plaster. Over 30,000 board feet of reclaimed barnwood from historic barns across the Country find a new purpose in the home. The antique oak circle-sawn flooring hails from Missouri, Ohio, and Kentucky, lending timeless character to the interior. The ceiling material is nearly-knot-free antique long-leaf pine salvaged from a bygone store in San Marcos, Texas. Most of the window and door trim is also antique long-leaf pine. A testament to local craftsmanship, the masonry is a labor of love, brought to life by the skilled hands of stone mason Scott Taylor. The awe-inspiring Douglas-fir timbers were carefully sourced from Washington State and British Columbia. Inset doors grace all the home's cabinetry, including the exquisite antique white oak barnwood gourmet kitchen cabinetry. Throughout the residence, the warmth of barnwood beautifully contrasts with the clean, sophisticated lines of the easy-to-maintain, white "Variance" plaster finish. Beyond the main residence, the detached garage and studio, meticulous landscaping, a charming children's playhouse, and an inviting firepit all reflect the same commitment to artistry, thoughtfulness, and care that define this exceptional property. This Mountain-modern masterpiece is not just a home; it is a testament to the heights that can be reached when visionary design, expert craftsmanship, and a passion for excellence converge. It stands as a symbol of achievement, much like the accomplishments you hold dear in your own life. Discover this remarkable achievement and make it a part of your own legacy.
