A custom home at Coyote Ridge embodies a lodge ambience with sophisticated high-end finishes. By Lynette Chilcoat
Ask Dave Feyen what he likes most about his custom home in Coyote Ridge, and the answer is simple. “My favorite part of living here is just being in the country,” he says. Surrounded by open fields of tawny grasses and stately cottonwoods, nary the thrum of traffic, nor the bustle of city life is in evidence at the development north of Johnstown. And yet, amenities such as Centerra and the Promenade Shops at the Interstate 25 and Highway 34 interchange are just minutes away. An unobstructed eastern horizon offers the chance to gaze at golden sunrises. With
just a handful of lots in the development, substantial ranchettes are situated acres apart. The feel is one of natural serenity where a small community big on personal privacy thrives. “I like coming home and chilling out,” continues Dave. “It feels homey and real cozy.” And that, after all, is what a home is all about. It’s an atmosphere Dave and his wife, Taunya, have pulled together well in their western-style home, where they have lived for a little more than a year. Built by NoCO Custom Homes LLC,
a firm owned by Jason and Dani Jones, the structure consists of three levels, with most of the common living areas on the main level. Arched doorways interweave throughout the myriad angular aspects, creating a wonderful, soothing balance. Exposed ceiling beams and walls painted a delicious shade of caramel cream lend themselves to a lodge ambience, complemented by hardwood floors installed by Carpet Exchange of Fort Collins. Imagine More, a leading regional lighting and high-tech home product provider, installed Control 4 for the integrated blinds.
