Contemporary twist on a traditional barn home in the Uinta mountains

Sunset Ranch offers an old-fashioned Western rustic charm, designed by Wyoming-based  along with architect Mark Rios, of Los-Angeles based . The spectacular home is  located near Oakley, Utah, sitting high on 110 acres overlooking the Kamas Valley and is surrounded by a forest of scrub oaks. The architecture team was contracted by the owners to design and construct a sprawling 12,254 family home.

The owners, who live in southern California, were drawn to the Park City, Utah area because their son directed and presented a film in the Sundance Film Festival. As soon as the family visited the area and witnessed the beautiful landscape, the owners who always had an affection for the West, decided to build a home in the Utah Mountains.

The house is composed of three levels and a creative mix of native stone and reclaimed timber to give the structure a traditional and rustic elegance. Even though most of the materials are reclaimed and old, the house was not intended to be a historical reproduction.

A contemporary twist on a traditional barn structure, the main house encompasses four bedrooms, three bathrooms, an executive office, theatre room, workout room, and a craft room. Near the main house is a separate, heated horse barn with guest quarters located on the top floor. Every space at Sunset Ranch enjoys breathtaking panoramic views of the Timpanogos and the Uinta mountain ranges.

The homeowners personalities shine through every corner of the property because they were involved in the project from beginning to end. They wanted the house to reflect the atmosphere of the west but also represent the family and their diverse interests.

What We Love: This magnificent rustic home is highlighted by reclaimed barnwood on both the exterior and interior, as well as locally-sourced stone, with a steel roof. A traditional barn home with luxury amenities throughout, this home manages to feel intimate even though it is so expansive. The architects cleverly devised seperate structures—with the most stunning being the silo-like tower topped with an open-air hot tub.

Breath taking mountain views, warm relaxing interiors, pool and hot tub, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, looks like an amazing place to stay.


Apparently insulation is lacking, or perhaps there is another explanation!
