Read more about Ridgeview Ranch
Located in the mountains of New Hampshire, the Ridgeview Ranch was inspired by the Western ranches of Lake Tahoe. Built with the Classic Appalachian log profile and applying a grey stain on the exterior, this house has a neat and unassuming look from the outside. It perfectly complements its surroundings, even with its Western influences.
Both the front entrance and the back deck feature beautiful King Post trusses and the elegant use of timbers continues inside the ranch. Dovetail log corners, along with square timber rafters and posts, lend a sophisticated yet rustic feel throughout the home. While the exterior is modest, the interior is quite breathtaking.
Entering the Ridgeview Ranch, you are in the Great Room, which has cathedral ceilings and opens into the kitchen and a small dining area. The interior features details like a live-edge wood countertop on the breakfast bar in the kitchen, barn doors, and a fireplace that is framed with reclaimed wood. The dovetail log corners add to the uniqueness and country ambiance of the home.
To the left of the Great Room are two bedrooms and a small, but full, bathroom. Beyond the kitchen, on the right side of the building, is the master suite. This features a good-sized bedroom with its own door out to the spacious back deck. A large master bathroom also leads to a walk-in closet.
The back deck has breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. Not only does it feature a striking King Post truss, but the owners got creative with the deck’s railings. Looking for a rustic option that would not break the bank, the owners settled on using goat fence from their local farm supply store. This enhances the overall bucolic theme of the home while highlighting the gorgeous views of the New Hampshire landscape.
