Wildcat Residence: Idyllic Valley Retreat Adopts European Country Style

Most log cabins and mountain retreats borrow extensively from local architectural principles and design quirks to create a stylish, relaxing and unique environment. But the beautiful Wildcat Ranch Residence in Colorado takes a completely different approach as it embraces the architectural style of classic European Country estates in order to move away from the beaten path. Elegant and exquisite, the luxurious residence is set on a vast 500-acre site that sits in a panoramic valley surrounded by majestic mountains. Designed by Poss Architecture, the ‘intentionally formal’ form of the home aims to contrast the soothing landscape around it.

Intentionally formal style of the ranch residence stands in contrast to the more relaxing backdrop

Sitting atop a small rolling hill, the expansive home overlooks a series of three ponds that surround it, and the interiors have been designed to ensure that every room enjoys the best possible views without ever disturbing the overall architectural style. While it is stone that shapes the home on the outside, the interior presents a more curated look with traditional elements meeting modern ergonomics. Exposed timber surfaces in the family room and bedrooms usher in inviting warmth, while neutral hues coupled with bright accents shape the living area.
