A home’s mix of exterior finish materials and varied, rambling roof lines are two of the attributes that announce “mountain style” at first glance. M.T.N Design’s new design, the Creekside timber home, says it loud and clear with a mix of stacked stone, wood siding, timber accents and metal roofing that recalls the old west. This timber frame home is also a natural fit for a sloped lot, following the lines of the land as if it was part of the mountain itself.
The Creekside’s clever design accommodates generous living areas, a home office and spacious guest accommodations all in 2,521 square feet. Its ceilings are higher than is typical, increasing the interiors’ volume and natural light and resulting in an open, airy feeling. The open air itself is accessible on both sides of the house thanks to 636 square feet of patio and covered decks.
The Creekside’s great room features heavy timber trusses that flank the stone fireplace and enhance the view from the room’s wall of windows. The seamless flow of the main living areas makes the Creekside an easy place to entertain, while its more private wing offers a quiet retreat for work or rest. Downstairs, the walkout lower level offers a suite with two bedrooms, laundry, a full bath and its own entrance.
The Creekside is a great example of a timber home plan that accommodates all of life’s activities in less than 3,000 square feet. Its flexible lower level can be configured to your family’s needs as well as the topography of your land, and its foot print of just 41 by 61 feet allows you to take advantage of that breathtaking site that just happens to be narrow. When planning your log or timber home, look for an architect who can design your dream home to meet the requirements of both your lot and your lifestyle.
