MOUNTAIN HOUSE Wild Goose Ranch Steamboat Springs

WESTERN SPIRIT Set in the striking landscape of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, the Wild Goose Ranch is an authentic interpretation of Western tradition infused with modern-day amenities. With a nod to ranch homes of a bygone era, the residence comprises three buildings connected by light-drenched enclosed walkways. Renewable energy sources and energy-efficient design elements are in place throughout the project. Agricultural ponds dot the property, referencing its history, while nearby, a timber-frame barn hosts a variety of community events sponsored by the civic-minded homeowners. Kelly & Stone Architects created the original master plan for this energy-efficient showpiece, as well as the design for the main residence and barn. A member of the United States Green Building Council, the awardwinning firm is dedicated to incorporating sustainable building solutions into their residential and commercial projects. Stunning examples of their work can be seen throughout the mountain west. Visit www.ksaarch.com or call 970.875.0590
