At the base of Sacagawea Peak, runs the Corbly Gulch. Nestled along the creek and intertwined among dense evergreen forest, this site has it all… water, mountain views, wildlife, and a bridge connection to one of the best trail heads in Bozeman. One of the more unique features of this property is the access. As you climb and switch back towards the skies, you end up arriving to the site from above and having to swoop back down into the prairie land. We wanted our sense of arrival to be different and not overpowered by roofs, so we covered most of them with vegetation. Almost as though the house grew out of the landscape and punched windows where it wanted view.
Once you make your way down to the house, you are greeted by a large, covered living area and outdoor fireplace that connects the guest house to the main residence. The plan compliments the landscape with large volume rooms, intimate niche spaces with intentional views, and your everyday program, kitchen, living, and dining, tucked along the northern edge so you have the luxury of hearing and accessing the running water. A blend of steel, Montana woods, and large glass openings make this house to feel like a natural pavilion among the land.
