Dutch Ridge Ranch Farmhouse

Lavender, honey and happiness. That’s the simple dream of husband and wife Tim and Lesha, and it’s what they grow in abundance on their ranch in the foothills of Livermore, Colorado. HighCraft has been their contractor from the beginning, helping the couple navigate every step of the building process – from bringing utilities to the raw land, to the design and construction of their guest house and livestock barn, to the construction of their 4,189-s.f. custom home. Tim and Lesha’s style could be described as “mountain farmhouse” or “Colorado modern rustic”– an eclectic blend of industrial, rustic, contemporary, timber-frame and farmhouse elements. Notable features of the luxury farmhouse include multiple outdoor living spaces, a 1,000-bottle wine cellar and tasting room, and a secondary prep kitchen where Lesha transforms the honey and lavender she grows into soaps, lotions and other products. HighCraft also incorporated universal design elements throughout every living space of their forever home so the couple can safely age in place.
