Sophistication and an American West romanticism is evident throughout this elegantly rustic 3 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath, 3,482sf custom residence.  Within prestigious RAIL X RANCH ESTATES, the home nestles into a wooded and grassy, gently rolling 41.9 acre hillside habitat surrounded by mountain silhouettes and canopied by dark, star-filled evening skies.  Abundant flora and fauna associated with this rare Sky Island habitat (among the few Sky Islands in the United States) can be experienced on or near this exceptional setting, including a diverse hummingbird population ~among other magical inhabitants. 


Owner-builder built with high attention to every detail, exceptional style, craftsmanship, materials and finishes couple with substantial Insulated Concrete Form construction and a handsome metal roof.  Repurposed 200 year old Southern Pine was resourced for the home's dramatic rafters, flooring and custom cabinetry.  Features include stone fireplaces; Knotty Alder doors; hand-troweled clay-tinted walls and granite counters; designer lighting and hardware; a Chef's Kitchen with premier appointments (farm sink; 36" Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer; Viking downdraft 6-burner gas stove; Dacor 30" built-in ovens, microwave, timed warming drawer; icemaker; Bosch dishwasher).  Just off the Kitchen is a discrete Butler's Pantry with separate entry, a staging area for entertaining, china storage and food storage areas and built-in desk/computer area.  The luxurious Master Suite features a corner fireplace and spacious-sunny-romantic Master Bath with generous dual-sink counter areas; chic Kohler tub in a lux window setting; star-like dressing area with adjacent Cedar closet.  An unusually wide hallway with ceiling-to-floor bookcases at one side connects the Master and a second Bedroom with the living areas.
