Cedar Creek Contemporary
Sited at the edge of a limestone bluff with views overlooking a scenic valley, this 5,300 square foot, six-bedroom, six-bathroom contemporary family home takes many aesthetic cues from the Prairie Style. Clad predominantly in stucco with stone, copper, steel, and wood accents, the exterior of the house strikes a balance between clean, modern lines and warm, natural materials. Horizontal lines are emphasized with hipped roofs and broad eaves. A south-facing three-story stair tower with corner windows allows an abundance of daylight to filter into all of the floors, while the L-shaped floor plan focuses the majority of the interior spaces towards the spectacular views to the north and west. A large first floor deck with steel and wood rails combined with a lower level patio and stone fire pit extend the living space into the private, wooded landscape.
