Bristlecone Ranch

Introducing Bristlecone Ranch: A Forthcoming Marvel of Modern, Industrial, and Rustic Architecture.

Envisioned to stand proudly at an impressive elevation of 9,200 feet, bordering a National Forest just outside Denver, Colorado, Bristlecone Ranch is an ambitious project that promises to redefine luxury living. This future home, sprawling over 20,000 square feet, is a harmonious blend of modern, industrial, and rustic styles, crafted for those who seek an extraordinary living space.



A Vision of Sustainable Luxury

Bristlecone Ranch is being designed with a strong emphasis on sustainability. The plan includes an off-grid power system comprising an 88-panel solar field, supported by a 48 kW generator and a 4,600-gallon propane tank, ensuring a self-sufficient and eco-friendly dwelling.

Architectural Grandeur in Progress

Upon completion, the ranch-style house, extending 226 feet in length, will welcome its residents with a majestic entryway, featuring a 33-foot ceiling adorned with Douglas Fir Timbers and a striking 50-foot exposed steel I beam. The centerpiece, the Great Room, is designed to incorporate exposed cedar trusses from the original structure, dual seating areas, a full bar, a game room area, and a spacious dining table.


Culinary Mastery in the Making

The kitchen, envisioned to be a culinary artist’s dream, will boast two islands with custom hickory cabinets, an under-the-stairs wine room, and a bespoke coffee bar. Planned appliances include a full-size standalone Miele fridge and freezer, a matte black and copper Bluestar Range, dual dishwashers, and warming drawers. A supplementary scullery is designed to add more functionality with additional appliances and a custom steel display case.

“Blending modern and rustic designs at a breathtaking elevation, this project is set to redefine what luxury living means.”
